We talk a lot of fashion around here, but you know what? No outfit is complete without a beautiful ‘do. After the handle on my last brush broke off mid-blow dry, I vowed from that day forth to always purchase quality brushes. So I did a ton of research on the hair brushes you need for a perfect blow dry… I visited the “latest” and “greatest” brushes everywhere from Sephora to Nordstrom… however, the thing is, I don’t want to spend $50 + on a brush. Right or wrong, I’d rather buy a cute top or a new lipstick instead.
Following many long weeks of hunting down honest reviews online, I realized I wanted to replace my entire set of brushes and add a couple more to my arsenal. I’ve been using these for months now and I looove them – so of course, it’s time for me to share the hair brushes you need for a perfect blow dry!
My favorite brush for the perfect blow dry is this Beautique Tahiti Wood Thermal Round Brush (and it’s under $10)
Over the years, I’ve come to realize that yes, you can get by with just one brush… but you wouldn’t want to. After having a selection of brushes in my repertoire, I’m the first to confirm that the results you can get, simply by using different brushes customized for achieving different looks, are fabulous! Oh and the brushes in my collection are all under $10. Holy hair brush! This is the collection you need…
I’d never used a proper comb or brush after washing my hair (I know you’re supposed to) and when I found The Wet Brush I wanted to try it. Gals, it is honestly the BEST! I can’t even think about brushing my wet hair with anything else, it makes a huge difference. I also use it when I’ve curled my hair as it’s gentle and doesn’t pull my curl style out, plus I use it on my clip-in extensions for the same reason. Can you believe it’s only $8.99.
Ahh the everyday staple of the group. If you’ve never used a paddle brush, girl, you’re missing out! I upgraded to this Ion Golden Wood Paddle Brush and it’s fabulous! I chose this as it has boar bristles for adding smoothness and shine, plus the ionic bristles help to condition hair. I also love that it’s all one piece of wood and you can instantly tell this brush is great quality. It’s just $9.99.
Want the ultimate blow dry? You need the ultimate brush of course! After the handle fell off my old round brush mid-blow dry, I vowed to always buy quality and get a fantastic new round brush – and after much searching, I found it! This Beautique Tahiti Wood Thermal Round Brush is absolutely brilliant. Featuring boar bristles for smooth and shiny hair, it’s thermal properties mean hair is quicker to dry. Priced at just $9.99 (so you can now have a salon beautiful blow dry every day!)
After deciding I needed a little va-va-voom and volume injection in my hair, I recently become re-acquainted with the teasing comb. The Amped Up Tease Brush is wonderful! Featuring boar bristles for smoothness and shine, it also has a special bristle pattern and texture to reduce damage, breakage and frizz. Oh and I love the sectioning tip at the end, it comes in very handy for styling and also putting in extensions.
I’d love to know… do you currently have a selection of brushes in your repertoire?
