I don’t even want to know how much money I used to cough up for monthly, weekly, and sometimes even twice-weekly salon blowouts pre-pandemic. I’ve never been good at styling my own hair, and if there’s any silver lining from the past year, it’s that I’ve had the chance to get intimately reacquainted with my hair au naturel. For the sake of my hair’s health, I’ve been trying to give my stressed-out strands a break by laying off the heat and air-drying roughly 80% of the time. Here and there, however, I’ll have an important Zoom meeting or interview that begs for just a little more polish and pizazz. It took me a while, but I’ve finally nailed down my perfect curling technique. (Team curling wand for life!) But mastering the at-home blowout proved much trickier—until, that is, I broke out the collection of hair dryer brushes I’ve been lucky enough to receive from various brands over the years. I have one word for you, folks: game-changing.
