FYI: You're Brushing Your Hair All Wrong
Upgrade your styling routine with these top hair tools that de-frizz, detangle, smooth and more
The Damage: With all the blow drying and heat styling you do when you attempting to go for curls, your hair is exposed to enough heat to crack the edges of your hair cuticle and cause irreversible damage .
The fix: Olivia Garden Ceramic + Ion Turbo Vent Combo Round Brush
How it helps: A larger round brush with ceramic coating makes styling while drying easier and minimizes the amount of damaging heat. Flower recommends locking in volume by blow drying sections with a ceramic round brush, letting it cool for 30 seconds (naturally, or blast with the "cool" button), then gently twisting the brush out of your hair. This technique gives a great base to your style, minimizes the amount of time your hair is exposed to heat, and adds a bit of wave to your style -- you'll spend less time using that curling iron (if you need it at all), says Flowers.
