Blow drying my hair is the bane of my existence. No really. I hate it. I hate it so much that I actually pay people to blow dry my hair for me. (Blow out salons were created for girls like me. Just sayin’) When Fromm approached me to test drive their new brush collection, I was a little hesitant for this reason. I never anticipated discovering how much a brush (or brushes, in this case) could affect my blow out, and improve the results – best of decreasing overall blow dry time. (Holla!)
I used all three brushes for this blow out, and will continue to use them for blow outs to come, as they each serve a very specific function in the drying process.
The Hot Paddle – This thermal paddle brush is the first of its kind. The aluminum retains heat to reduce dry time, which I immediately noticed. A curved shape allows for lift at the root. I started with this brush on my wet hair and used it for the initial blow dry, until my hair was just damp.
Square Thermal – While my hair was just damp, I switched to this brush for styling while continuing the blow dry. The ceramic ionic coated barrel locks in moisture are you’re drying, while the rippled ionic bristles increase overall contact with your hair. The square shape allow for a a variety of styling options – use a flat end to maximize smooth strands, tilt at an angle to create loose waves, or rotate fully to create tight curls.
The Glosser – The last step in finishing off the look was perfected with this brush. It’s made from boar bristles which naturally contain an anti-frizz serum, making it the perfect finishing tool! Use this one when your hair is just barely damp and you’re in the final styling stages.
What was most surprising to me after using these products, is how soft and shiny my hair looked and felt. Honestly, I could never have imagined how much a set of brushes would change my utter abhor for blowing drying my hair, but they truly did. Best of all, they are each less than $20! A small investment to avoid future frequent trips to the blow out bar.
