Man! I am so dramatic.

Many moons ago I attended a Pantene event where I drilled my hair stylist for hours about every beauty question I ever wanted answered. The two takeaways that I have to share today are both about tools.  Apparently, my cheap hair dryer was doing damage to the ends of my hair. I also was using the wrong brush for straightening.

It only took me a month to actually act on this news. Yes, I’m fast like a viper.


A new store opened up by my house a few months ago and I thought I’d swing by to see if they had the T3 – the blow dryer my stylist recommended. I couldn’t believe the selection! The people in the store must have thought I was crazy taking pictures, but I couldn’t resist.

It was a little pricey. Ok, a lot pricey. Over $100!  {Editor’s note: I paid more in the store than the above link to Amazon. I should have checked online before making the purchase.} I’ve had my old blow dryer since college, so I gave in and made the purchase anyway.

This puppy is HOT. SUPER HOT. And my hair looked like I used a flat iron. It was wonderful! What a difference a tool can make. If you are using an old hair dryer, consider switching to one of the newer lines. There is truth to what I’m saying here. I LOVED the way my hair came out.

The Pantene stylist also told me to get a brush that had two different types of bristles – hair and plastic. I’ve being using this over-sized round brush and he said it wasn’t the right choice. I upgraded and am so happy I did.
