Hot and healthy hair starts with the right shampoo, conditioner and mousses, gels and creams. But, it doesn’t end there. You need the right hair tools, too. You need Hot Tools. They’ve been around for what seems like forever, a line of great hair dryers, curling irons and straighteners, and they just keep getting better (or hotter).
Seriously, the right tools can make or break(age) your hair. First up is a quality hair dryer. You want to look for things like wattage or power, speeds, heat options, etc. The Tourmaline Tools 2000 Turbo Ionic Dryer has everything I want in a hair dryer. It’s quiet and lightweight and has 8 speed/heat settings. It has a “pro-moisture system” that combines tourmaline and ionic technologies – translation – it won’t over-dry hair, instead it will smooth the cuticle for soft, shiny, silky frizz-free hair. It comes with 3 attachments: a diffuser, a straightening pik and a concentrator. And, best of all, in my opinion…it reduces drying time up to 50%! Now, that is a hot deal.
I’m a daily flat iron user, for good or for bad. The more heat you put on your hair, the more chance for dry, “straw” like strands. The Hot Tools Titanium 1” Digital Salon Flat Iron has titanium plates which distribute heat evenly. It has high heat so one pass will do it; you don’t have to continually iron one section of your hair before moving on to the next. Plus, it has a handy little chart right on the package for the recommended temp based on your hair type, from fragile to thick. And, it’s cute and pink!
I don’t curl my hair much but the 2” Profession Spring Curling Iron is fab. It creates luscious, sexy, loose curls. It’s so easy to use for a novice curler like me. And, like the other tools, it distributes heat evenly and has lots of settings, heating up to 430 degrees if you so choose.
Don’t let the price fool you. Yes, Hot Tools are super affordable, but they have true staying power to give you hot hair every time. Choose the right tools, your hair with thank you.
