Beauty Tools for Curly Girls
Which brings me to my next most used hair tool. My Mason Pearson Popular brush. The combination of nylon and boar bristles work perfectly for my hair texture. There is some controversy over whether curly girls should use brushes at all but for me, I say absolutely yes. The risk of damage is far outweighed by this brush’s usefulness. When I’m wearing a twist-out, the Mason Pearson defines my curl pattern like no other. And it works as a great de-tangler too. Love. It.
When I want curls without risking heat damage, I turn to Curlformers. They are great for creating barrel style (aka Shirley Temple) curls that can be worn in a variety of ways. My ‘Curly’ look above is achieved with them.
PRO TIP: Always work with small sections of hair. Make sure your hair is really wet, not sopping but fully saturated and try brushing each section before pulling through the tube for frizz-free curls.
And finally there’s the straight me! These days I don’t wear my hair straightened very often but when I’m in the mood to whip my hair back and forth, only a smooth blowout will do. Enter the Centrix Q-Zone Lightweight Dryer. When searching for a great dryer there are a number of considerations: power, temperature options, weight, cord length and attachments. The Q-Zone delivers in all these areas, not the least of which is the pick attachment that actually stays on the dryer during use. Believe me, I have duct-taped countless comb attachments to dryers in order to successfully dry my thick hair.
