I have been addicted to hair styling tools since I was old enough to attempt curling my hair with my mothers hot rollers. I have gone through many hair phases (and hair colors!). There was the perm, the Brazilian blowouts, the big hair/big rollers days, and of course the flat as a pin phase. I have beaten my poor strands down to nothing. They hate me. They are fried and tired. But, I truly can't keep away from my flat iron or large curling iron. A good hair day makes me feel like I am conquering the world! And it instantly makes me feel put together.
Here are my three must haves:
1) T3 Mane Tamer Tourmaline Flat Iron: the name "mane tamer" says it all. This seriously tackles my thick wavy hair and makes it smooth as silk. This is my favorite flat iron for us gals with unruly and TONS of hair.
2) Mason Pearson Bristle/nylon Mix Hair Brush: Yes, it is ridiculously expensive...but it is worth every penny. This saves your strands, and leaves hair glossy and feeling silky. This brush will last you a lifetime, and will be the only brush you will ever need, or ever use.
3) HOT TOOLS 1 1/2 inch Curling Iron : Hot Tools has the best curling irons ever. I use them exclusively in my professional kit, but this is the one that I keep in my personal drawer. I love the 1 1/2 inch size. It is perfect for getting some soft curl at the ends of the hair without looking like ringlets. Think beachy, sexy, goddess hair.
