As someone with thick, coarse, curly locks, I've always found it difficult to manage my hair at home. But I'm obsessed with how shiny and bouncy my hair looks after a professional blowout. That's why I would hit up my local blowdry bar almost weekly. Until the pandemic that is.
With all the time in the world to do my own hair, I took matters into my own hands. I researched tools that could help me achieve a salon-type blowout at home. What I found was how easy round hair dryer brushes were to use on my curly hair. Not to mention how voluminous and smooth my mane looked once I was done styling. Plus, they significantly cut down on styling time.
Ready to try one of these handy tools yourself? Here are the best hair dryer brushes you can buy right now.
