This is extremely random, but I just thought I’d share a new (to me) hair tool that I’ve been using and loving for the past few months. I recently decided to try a hot air brush, although it seems they are sometimes called a few different things (brush dyer, blower brush, etc.).
I have very fine hair and I tend to keep it pretty long. It takes me a fairly long time to dry my hair after showering, so much so that I often just let it air dry. I don’t love spending that long drying my hair, since it’s usually the morning and I’m wanting to get going on work stuff.
But I also don’t love using heat on my hair for that long (I do use heat, I just try not to overdo it as I think this keeps my hair looking healthier). But during the colder months, I really don’t like to leave my hair wet to let it air dry because it’s just so cold.
Anyway, I decided to try a new product. I honestly never try hair gadgets so I’m embarrassed to say this didn’t really occur to me for a while. Ha. But finally I decided to try something to see if it could cut back on the amount of time needed to fully dry my hair.
I’m happy to report that my hot air brush does significantly cut back on the amount of time I used to spend drying my hair. It also acts like kind of a straightener. I am not able to “curl” my hair with it, although from the photos online it seems to be advertised like you can (maybe I’m just not skilled, IDK).
I bought #3 and I really like it! The first time I pulled it out Trey laughed just because it is quite big—it looks like a giant round brush.
I do wonder if the smaller versions might be better for curling your hair while also drying. This is the only one I’ve tried so far so I don’t know, but that would be my guess.
Would love to hear if any of you have used a hot air brush and what you thought. Or, if you have any other suggestions for cutting back on drying time for gals with long, super fine hair, I’m all ears! xo. Emma
