Alright, I’m going to cut to the chase. This is a home run for Dry Bar. Not only is it a great blow dry bar franchise but they also have their own line of styling tools and products (service fees vary according to location but typically it’s $49 for a blowout and $25 for dry styling). They just released their latest heat styling tool, which is what I’m about to dive into below!
So typically I wear my hair two ways – either it’s in my “on-the-go” bun or down entirely. However, once or twice a month I like to pamper myself and get a blowout at one of my fave local spots Dry Bar (Pacific Heights). That is where I found out about The Brush Crush and let me tell ya Friends…it BLEW ME AWAY. LITERALLY.
I have thick and coarse hair that falls below my shoulders; its not difficult to straighten but when its been in a bun for the past two days, there tend to be more kinks and knots in it…meaning more swipes with the straightener are needed. I had been using my same beloved Chi of five years and it’s always taken 4-5 rounds of swipes to straighten it. So, how long does it take with The Brush Crush, do you ask?
CHI: 30 minutes –VS– Brush Crush: 4 minutes
It took LESS THAN FOUR MINUTES using The Brush Crush. My hair wasn’t pin straight or perfect sleek but it still looked fabulous, as if I had just walked out of the salon! The Brush’s ionic technology and paddle Brush form seals the hair cuticle, reducing frizz and increasing shine! This brush is AMAZING. Also, it has a 60 minute safety shut-off which is an important safety function I always look for when purchasing any heat styling tool.
I also purchased the Drybar Hot Toddy Heat Protectant Mist with The Brush Crush (note: its extremely important to use a thermal protectant shield on your hair prior to putting any heat on your hair; the Hot Toddy also provides an added bonus of UV protection). Without a barrier between your hair and that 350-450 degree heat, you’re basically resigning your hair to a dry, dull future. A thermal protectant will help reduce the amount of thermal stress on your hair!
FINAL SAY 4/5 stars With The Brush Crush, I can straighten and brush my hair at the same time, thereby cutting my styling time in half! That’s great news for anyone who is always on a time crunch and simply doesn’t have the time to spend half an hour on straightening their hair. With The Brush Crush my hair looks shiny and frizz free after straightening! This is one tool that is a bit pricey but in my opinion, it’s DEFINITELY worth the investment.
