1. Blo and Go Portable Hair Dryer Holder ($29.99)
Haven’t you always wished you had an extra arm for blow drying? That’s what the Blo and Go is— a flexible mount that will hold your blow dryer above your head for you, so you have two free hands to brush and style. This is especially handy when you’re trying to do a DIY blowout, and need to wrap your hair around the round brush. You can see my in-depth demonstration here.
2. Frenchies Flocked Hair Pins ($13.95)
Do bobby pins constantly slip out of your hair? Frenchies solve that problem with these velvet covered hair pins. The material creates grip so that they stay in place while holding your hair securely. I only need one to hold my thick hair into a bun— it’s magic!
3. The Wet Brush ($8.98)
One of my favorite inventions literally ever, the Wet Brush is designed to tangle the most stubborn hair. While most recommend not to brush your hair when wet, some of us have no choice, since our textured hair will tangle horribly. The Wet Brush gently detangles while cutting down on breakage. No other brush can get through my thick hair as easily.
4. Scalpmaster Shampoo Brush ($3.40)
If you have flaky scalp, or just like scalp massages in general, this in-shower brush is for you! I’d personally use it to help exfoliate the scalp and loosen up any dead skin to be washed away. It also helps spread your shampoo over your head, getting it deep down to the follicle.
5. Turbie Twist Microfiber Hair Towel ($15 for 2-pack)
You should know by now that using a normal towel can cause frizz and breakage. Opting for microfiber materials is best to soak up moisture from the hair. The Turbie Twist is a great way to dry your hair and keep it out of your face. It helps dry it quickly while you move on to other parts of your routine.
6. Milk&Sass Sugar Twists Spiral Hair Ties ($7.99)
I spread the word about these every chance I get. The Sugar Twists Spiral Hair Ties are the only ones I use on my hair. The spiral design comb into your hair for a grip that is comfortable and doesn’t leave dents. Best of all, it never slips out of my hair even with heavy activity!
7. Softhood Bonnet Hair Dryer Attachment ($18.95)
So you’ve already put your hair up in curlers… and now you’re out of energy. Don’t spend another 30 minutes applying heat yourself! This bonnet attaches to your hair dryer through the tube, and goes over your hair to apply even heat to set your style. No more switching arms and uneven curls.
8. Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer & Styler ($35.45)
Another tool that makes drying your hair a breeze, this one is in the shape of a paddle brush that will dry and straighten your hair in one step. The heat comes out through channels between the brush bristles, and the paddle stile helps smooth frizz. See how it works in my video here.
9. Hair Straightening Brush ($17.99)
This hair straightening brush took the internet by storm. While many experienced mixed results, this worked really well on my hair. The bristles themselves warm up to distribute heat evenly through your hair. Since it’s getting between strands, I can imagine this is probably better for your hair than pressing it between two hot plates. See my results in my video here.
10. Kiss Professional Instawave ($46.34)
This is my all-time favorite curling iron that actually made me throw out my old school clamp curlers. With a press of a button, this automatic curler wraps the strand of hair around the wand for you, heating it evenly over the barrel. Check out my review and demo of this here.
