I don’t schlep a ginormous hair dryer, but it’s not uncommon for me to pack a travel blow dryer, but also two brushes (one gigantor round one) AND a comb. And then I wonder why I have room for a single pair of heels and have to forgo bringing gym sneakers.
But I’m a heat tool snob (the first step is admitting it), so I had doubts about a blow-dryer brush (the last one I used was in ’98 and it singed my hair off in college) that I could find at a drugstore. And then I tried the John Frieda Conair Hot Air Brush. WHAT? This piece rocks the funk. It helps my hair hold a non-prommy curl all day and yields incredible shine, especially when I first use a standard-issue dryer to blast it 50% of the way dry. Best of all? The ion technology-infused brush makes frizz and static go the way of planet Druidia.
The John Frieda Conair Hot Brush retails for $40 on drugstore.com. May the Schwartz be with you.
Are you a fan of the dryer brush?
