In a saturated sea of hair tools and contraptions, it can be pretty easy to fall for a gimmick. We'd even argue that, at some point, most of us have thrown cash at a product that promised so much but ended up delivering so very little. Shattered hair dreams can leave a person downright skeptical of other products, especially if said products are kind of funny-looking. No need to worry because these out-of-the-ordinary hair tools actually work and won't leave you broken-hearted or limp-locked.
Brooklyn-based haircare brand Amika is coming at you with an innovative hair straightener-meets-brush. Simply run it through your hair like you would with a regular brush and it'll straighten and nix frizz right in front of your eyes.
You know how when you spritz on dry shampoo and it often leaves a tell-tale sign of white residue? Well, Conair developed a new tool for that — in collaboration with Batiste — and it's pretty rad. You insert the travel-size dry shampoo into the bottom of the tool, spritz it on your roots, then comb through your hair.
Flatironing your hair — or even just sleeping on it — can dramatically reduce volume. This hair tool aims to combat that issue via a grid-like plate that you press over your hair at the root to instantly lift and volumize. Bonus: the results last for days.
Here's another version of a straightening brush, this one by Drew Barrymore's Dear Drew line of hair tools. This one features 3D ceramic plates, cool-tip bristles and a top that allows you to easily control tension and speed as you brush it through your hair.
