Let’s be real for a sec—high-quality hair tools literally change your life. They make mornings easier, nights out more fun, and treat your hair more gently than tools that don’t meet certain standards. Sephora Collection wants to give you the hair of your dreams and then some with our collection of affordable hair tools.
Materials are key. One surefire way to know you’re getting a quality product is by checking out the materials your hair tools are made from. Curling and flat irons made from titanium, like the , are considered superior because of their ability to distribute heat more evenly than other materials. Titanium is also lighter and utilizes infrared technology to transmit heat with less damage.
Want a salon-quality blowout at home? Set your sights on a dryer, like the , with frizz-preventing properties. Infrared technology shines again (literally and figuratively) with this one. By coaxing the oils from inside your strands to the outside, your hair gets coated in light-reflecting goodness. Infrared is also known to majorly reduce frizz and cut down on dry time.
Affordable hair tools with a commitment to quality can help your curls, waves, and straightened strands stay that way longer. If you want to maximize the life of your ‘do, then there are a few steps you can take before and after you heat style.
Starting with dirty hair means your strands are less slippery and will hold a curl longer. Using hair products that protect from heat and aid in styling will really extend your hair’s style (and health). Oh, and don’t forget that the bigger the barrel, the looser the curls, which means they will flatten out faster by default.
