Clean Your Hairbrush!

Does your hairbrush look like it just came out of battle?  Don’t worry I know exactly what you mean!  I found the perfect gadget that helps you keep your hairbrush tidy for as long as you have it. 

Olivia Garden, the maker of awesome hair brushes, has just launched a hair brush cleaner.  It definitely is an interesting looking gadget but don’t let the looks fool you – it really works.  You can use the larger side to rake through the brush bristles and the smaller side to clean a specific area of the brush. 

With a few simple swipes all of the hair and grime comes right off!  This definitley prolongs the life of your brush.  I love it!  Check it out at Oliva Garden

BaByliss Heatwaves Brushes

Babyliss Heatwaves Hair BrushDoes your hair brush have a unique Ceramic Barrel that changes color when optimum heat temperature is reached? Mine does! Meet the Heatwaves Brushes from Babyliss Pro. These Ceramic round brushes are perfect for smoothing, straightening, curling and adding tons of volume to all hair types with Ceramic Technology and Ionic Nylon Bristles. Yep, Ceramic AND Ionic.

The innovative Ceramic Barrel Technology evenly distributes the heat from your hair dryer for faster styling (which I love) while the Ionic bristles close the hair’s cuticle and emits ions to smooth and relax hair strands (which I love even more). Sound familiar? It is. This is the same gentle ionic technology you have in your Ceramic Flat Iron, which translates into less pulling, less tugging and less damage to your hair. And we all know that less damage to your hair is always a good thing.

It also has a comfortably soft, rubberized handle that provides the ultimate control while styling, all you have to do is pick a barrel size! How easy is that? Very!

A Handy Little Hairbrush Guide

There are so many different kinds of brushes, you could really go nuts. But which brush is the best one to use? It all depends on your hair type, and your styling needs. Our friends over at BaByliss have it down to a science – literally, their brushes are so technologically advanced! We created this handy little hair brush guide based on the scoop we got from them.

Babyliss Heatwaves Hair BrushThere are many different types of brushes designed to produce different styling results to your hair. The brush you decide to use should reflect the type of hair you have and the end result you would like to achieve. Some of the most popular styles of brushes are the paddle, cushion, vent and round brushes, but which one is right for you?

Paddle brushes are flat and wide and great for creating smooth, straight styles on long hair.

Cushion brushes are available in many different sizes and feature a cushion that holds the bristles. These brushes are great for massaging your scalp and smoothing out hair.

Vent brushes are designed to create volume while blow-drying or air styling, since the openings in the brushes allow air to flow through resulting in quicker drying time.

Round brushes are used to add body and volume.

Smaller barrel brushes create curls, whereas larger barrel brushes straighten and smooth hair.

Thermal round brushes are designed to use while blow-drying, since hot air from the blow-dryer heats the barrel up and allows the hair to set and dry faster.
