In the words of Scottish Philosopher Thomas Carlyle, "Man is a tool-using animal. Without tools he is nothing, with tools he is all." The same can be said for your hair care. While the products you use on those luscious locks helps keep them healthy, clean, hydrated and manageable, they can’t fully do their job—and you can’t do yours—without the proper tools. With a good brush or comb, a mane-taming straightener, a well-designed hair dryer or a wave-making curling iron, the magic truly begins. While you may not need all of these products, be sure to use the ones that are right for your hair type and the hairstyle you want to achieve.
Many styles can be achieved using a blow dryer and a brush, but you may also find that a hot brush or comb makes it easier to dry and brush using one hand. Hot brushes and flat irons are effective in making curly hair smooth and straight. Curling irons and rollers come in varying sizes, with larger sizes best for smoothing and straightening and smaller ones better for creating tighter curls. For other hair-related needs, choose from a variety of hair trimmers, clippers, tweezers, hair removal devices and hair tool kits.
