When it comes to my beauty routine, my hair is what I spend the most time on. Being a Chinese person with naturally very dark brown hair, I have been bleaching it to a medium shade of blonde for about seven years and honestly can’t see myself without this bold hair color! I think it’s part of my look now and what I’m known for.
However, having such a noticeably lighter shade of hair presents challenges; split ends appear more often than they should, and my locks can feel limp or straw-like when dried out.
That’s why it’s very important to use high quality hair products that can take care of my hair while I’m styling it, that’s where Hairdresser Between; it is an Australian online store that offers the best in everything about hair and beauty, such as hair care products, tools and much more. Their site is super easy to navigate and they stock some amazing brands you can’t miss (psst… some are even formulated without nasties). Here are my favorites.
This high-tech tool is the go-to if you’re looking for something that can dry your hair fast, and a product that I think everyone can benefit from. There are four precision heat settings available (although I never use the hottest setting, the second-highest setting works just fine for me), as well as a cold-fire feature that I recommend using. Use at the end of your session to define your look and boost shine. The tool is also quite lightweight compared to other tools, which means your arm won’t get tired halfway through drying your hair.
My favorite way to style my hair is in loose waves, and I’ve tried tons of tools on the market, but I keep coming back to this one. I love that the barrel has an elliptical shape, which allows me to create a more lived-in look, rather than a glam round wave. What sets this tool apart is the Tri-zone technology built into the tool which helps distribute heat evenly along the length of the device. I know I’m not alone when I say I’m someone who forgets to turn off their hot tool after using it – another good thing about this tool is that it has an auto shut off feature who does the hard work for me.
Sometimes a straight, sleek look is what I’m looking for, especially when I know my curls have no chance of lasting (like when it’s raining outside). This tool is what I use quite regularly as you can choose from two heat settings: 165 and 195 degrees. I find the lowest setting to be quite hot, but you can easily switch between the two heat settings by tapping the plates three times (like a pair of tongs). Another remarkable element of this product is its composition; it is made up of mineral-infused ceramic floating plates that are very gentle on your hair as they reduce drag and friction.
Technically it’s not a heat styling tool per se, but it’s something I use whenever I use a heat styling product like a hair dryer, straightener, or curler. This product is unique in that it is heat activated – what you do is spray it into damp hair after getting out of the shower, and drying it with a hair dryer will cause the product to works like magic. The polymers inside the lightweight formula are the secret to creating instant softness and truly shiny hair for up to three washes.
