Styling Tools for Our 'Dos

When it comes to styling our hair, the tools that we use are important. I prefer using wide-tooth combs and paddle brushes to smooth my relaxed strands, but there are myriad tools that suit all hair types. From boar-bristle brushes to plastic fine-toothed combs, there are styling tools that will keep our 'dos in place at all times!

I recently came across a great brand of ceramic and tourmaline combs and brushes called Studio IM. One lucky reader will win the following combs and brushes valued at $49.50 from this line. Just leave a comment and a winner will be selected randomly. The winner will be announced on Tuesday.

Those brushes/combs look amazing! Hair care is more than products but the tools that a person uses that really make a difference. These would be definitely make a great addition to my hair regime. Great Post. :-)

I'm big on hair care. LOL. I use a wide-toothed comb and my Denman brush for styling. That's it.

Can you believe I don't use any tools on my hair? Kinda crazy, uh? LOL! Have a great Monday, BGG!

I used a wide-tooth comb, paddle brush, a boar bristle brush to smooth the edges. But my best tool is my shower comb. I love it and it really makes a difference with detangling my hair.

This collection looks great too.

I live and breath by my Denman brush... The best thing about it is that its great on both wet or dry hair.

Pretty as those combs are, they don't stand a chance with my curls and kinks.

I'm a hair care fanatic! I'm always trying something different for my hair. I prefer wide tooth combs and paddle brushes.

BGG, like you I prefer wide tooth combs and paddle brushes. Periodically, I go back to the hard bristle brush of my youth. It's the only thing that will work when my relaxer is over due!

kay* said...

it all depends on what i'm doing to my hair but for the most part i use a paddle brush, a natural brush and a medium size tooth comb...a finer comb for parts and such but that's a given :)

Kwana said...

I love cool styling tools. You always know the hot stuff BG. Paddle brushes are great.

I love my wide toothed comb, but I have yet to find that perfect brush.

i love boar bristle brushes, they're so much easier to do a blow out with :)

This brings back memories. I was just in a beauty supply store over the weekend saw those combs/brushes but was insanely confuses.. wasn't sure which to choose..

I also prefer wide tooth combs. I was told once by a hair stylist that brushes aren't healthy for your hair. Can anyone tell me if that really so..

mimieyes said...

I'm constantly having a battle with hair brushes, because of my long hair.
I'm afraid of round brushes, since I got one stock on hair once.
A paddle brush work better for me. Next time I need a new brush I'll try your suggestion on the Nylon Paddle.

I love paddle brushes and wide tooth racks to give my hair some oomph. I will be casting my vote tomorrow...It feels like Christmas. Definitely can't wait for a historical outcome.

Megan said...

I'm a hair care fanatic. I spend so much on hair dryers, flat irons, and curling irons (there so expensive now!) I only have enough for a cheap paddle brush from the drugstore. =[ I guess it gets the job done...done well is another question.lol. great product though.

I use a paddle brush to detangle my hair but for styling I use my two hands ;o)
