First things first, there will not be a Lust-Have List for December, because of all the holiday gift guides I’ll be sharing the next couple of weeks. Too many lists. Also, because I’m consumed with trying to think of gifts to give my family and friends (FYI – I’m a giver), I haven’t really thought about what list of things I would like this month.
Despite my desire for gifts upon gifts, there are is one thing that I’m looking for and that’s a new blow dryer with a comb attachment. As a frequent curly hair rocker, I sometimes prefer to add a little sleekness to my hair via flat ironing. Bone straight hair doesn’t work for my round face. So, I tend to just flat iron my hair after washing and air drying to cut back on heat damage and let my hair gradually wave up and add texture on it’s own, which usually happens by the next day. Second day hair so truly awesome.
As a natural with curly hair, you have to be very careful when it comes to adding heat styling tools, because they can cause heat damage and damage the pattern of curls. Unfortunately, I recently noticed some heat damage to my hair and have stopped using my flat iron altogether. The direct heat of a flat iron is just too much, no matter how low I have the temperature.
However, there are still some “heat” styling tools that are designed specifically for curly hair, which are low in heat and give your bouncy and frizz-free curls. Keep reading to see some styling tools for curly hair.
DevaDryer and DevaFuser – Devacurl is one of the top brands for creating products and tools for curly hair. Their devadryer and devafuser was created specifically for curly and wavy hair. The hand shaped devafuser has a 360 degree airflow and slides comfortably to your roots, and cups your hair as you dry it. Definite dynamo.
Hair Steamer – If you have curly and/or natural hair, you should definitely get a hair steamer, because the benefits are awesome. Steaming your hair can increase moisture retention, enhance your curls, and strengthen your hair, to name a few.
Ouidad Double Detangler – Every curly hair person knows the importance and necessity of a wide tooth comb. However, the awesome thing about this one from Quidad, is that is easily glides through your hair (wet or dry) without tugging on your tresses.
AQUIS Hair Turban – I can’t remember the last time I used a towel to dry my hair or 360 lace frontal wigs, because I’m all about the microfiber turban life. Microfiber not only dries your hair faster, but also prevents your hair from frizzing up, unlike towels.
