The Importance Of Investing In High-Quality Hair Styling Tools
*Sponsored by Dermstore
In a perfect world, we could all wash our hair only once every few days to keep the healthy oils intact, let it air dry and watch it transform into the perfect stylized look we want to wear out into the world. But this is reality, where the vast majority of us have to put a fair amount of effort into making our hair cooperate with our intended aesthetic. And in this reality, we have the choice of making budget buys or significant splurges on the tools that help us get our looks just right.
Well, we’re here to tell you that investing in the right styling tools up front actually saves you a ton of cash, time and stress down the road. While your wallet might feel the struggle initially, your hair will suffer a lot less heat damage and breakage when you splurge on the good stuff, and if you color treat your hair, using the right tools is one of the best ways to protect that expensive dye job you already spent good money on.
Below are our three favorite hair styling tools from Dermstore, including a hair dryer, flatiron and curling iron designed by renowned celebrity hairstylist Harry Josh, all of which come with a 2-year warranty. Oh, and just for being a loyal Swirled reader, you can enjoy a major discount on the iconic mint green dryer. (You’re welcome.)
This baby is top of the top when it comes to hair dryers. Seriously, there are several reasons why celebrities like Miranda Kerr can’t live without it. This magical hair dryer reduces your drying time by up to 50 percent with its 81 miles-per-hour air stream, and it weighs next to nothing. Oh, and in addition to its multiple heat and speed settings, the dryer has an ion functionality that gives you minimal frizz and maximum shine at the end of your blowout. Snag the hair dryer now and enjoy 32 percent off the original $249 sticker price (an $80 savings value).
Coming in at the $175 mark, this multi-functional curling iron will give you all of those waves you wish your hair had naturally. Regardless of whether you’re into the loose and tousled look or the tight and curly updo, this iron can get the job done — and the ceramic barrel will keep your strands hydrated, healthy and oh-so-shiny in the process. The design is a helpful hybrid of your classic curling iron with the modern wand, making it the most dynamic tool in your styling arsenal. And for the price, you’re getting more than just the curling iron. It comes with the detachable marcel clip, a heat-resistant glove to help you avoid burning those precious fingertips and a heat-resistant barrel pouch for safe stowing. (Plus, it’s on sale for 25 percent off — a $43.75 savings value — from August 10 to 19.)
If you love long, shiny locks, this $200 hair straightener is a must-try. The ceramic styling iron uses floating plates and advanced digital technology to create all of the smoothness and shine you crave while keeping your hair nice and healthy day after day. The plates distribute heat evenly, so it takes fewer passes to achieve the styling result you desire. It’s also incredibly lightweight, making it a friend to the frequent travelers out there. And if you’re a forgetful one, don’t worry — the iron also has an auto shut-off safety feature that will keep you from burning down your apartment. Phew. (This guy is also on sale for 25 percent off — a $50 savings value — from August 10 to 19.)
