Most of the time we are talking about hair care products when it comes to achieving healthy, shiny hair, but aren’t the tools we are using just as important? Thinking of the perfect hairdryer, brush and all the rest you need for grooming. IRMA has selected her favorite new tools.
Paddle Brush by Shue Uemura
Double nylon pins will detangle your hair gently, while the natural bristles smooth out your hair. Tip: If the brush gets stuck in your strands, be nice to your hair and don’t force it through. Just start at the roots again (and again and again), until your hair is finally detangled.
Brush Cleaner Acca Kappa
Dry-clean your brush from hair and styling residues with this little helper, best after every 100-brush session. If you need a bit more of a cleansing (this depends on how often you use your brush and how much styling residue you are used to brush out), use a mild detergent and only rinse in water. After shaking off any excess of water let your brush dry with pins down.
Temptu AirPod Airbrush 24-Hour Root Touch Up & Hair Color
Those cartridges are part of an airbrush-system and the perfect quick-fix until your next visit at your hairdresser. Hooray for this oil-free and lightweight powder, which adheres to hair fibres and covers up those mean roots for about 24 hours.
Hairdryer Parlux Advance Light Ionic & Ceramic
Only 456 gram is a real deal when you don’t go to your hairdresser for any blow dry (like your grandma used to do it) and it’s completely recyclable. But still, it blow dries like a pro-tool in a salon. IRMA loves the colour range you can choose from: 10 colourful and neutral shades.
Kérastase Hair Coach Powered By Withings
Yes, we are talking about a very smart brush here. This very new coup in beauty technology responds with an app on your smartphone and gives you advice if your hair needs more or less moisturizing, if you brush too fast or too hard, to name just a few parameters. For example a microphone detects the sound while brushing and analyzes in what condition your hair is. For reliable data collection your hair needs to be a least chin long and the sensors are not compatible with curly or coarse hair.
Portrait of a Lady Hair & Body Oil by Frederic Malle
This is the final touch. You need a 2in1 effect? The fine scent of rose and patchouli is the heart of Frederic Malle’s Portait of a Lady fragrance. Formulated as an oil, it deeply moisturizes at the same time. With your fingers work in a very small amount into your strands. It will also give your hair a nice structure.
