Beachwaver Review

Beachwaver Pro - Beachwaver Review

Beach waves are a very popular style, but getting the perfect curl is not easy. Traditional curling irons make it hard to achieve the loose carefree waves that give off a beachy vibe. The Beachwaver claims that it takes all the guess work out of curling, by automatically rotating hair around the barrel. This results in the perfect loose waves every time. The Beachwaver was even named the official hair tool of the Victorias Secret Fashion Show. But is it a miracle device, or too good to be true? Keep reading out Beachwaver Review to find out!

What are Oval Makeup Brushes?

Oval makeup brushes, are a new design of makeup brushes that give a flawless airbrush look. They are amazing for applying concealer, foundation, bronzer, and achieving a perfect complexion. The Oval brushes are curved like a spoon handle with bristles that look similar to a hair brush. Oval Makeup brush sets are great because they have very soft dense bristles.

These bristles cover skin evenly, and allow you to get a smooth application and coverage. Since they are very soft, they are also great for sensitive skin. Artis is the most popular brand of Oval Makeup Brushes, but they are pretty pricey. I wanted to know if Artis is worth shelling out for or if a dupe set is just as good. Read on to see which is the Best Oval Makeup Brush Set.

DevaDryer and DevaFuser Hand Diffuser

But what makes the DevaFuser Hand Diffuser different?

The DevaFuser is great for drying curly hair, much better than a standard diffuser. This hand shaped diffuser attachment is awesome because it allows 360 degree airflow to cover the curls completely. This is especially useful for the root area which is sometimes difficult to get dry. The DevaFuser speeds up my morning routine A TON. It used to take me 20 minutes to do my hair using my old diffuser, but it takes only 9 minutes using the DevaFuser!

My Hair After Using Hair Growth Vitamins

My hair after using Hair Growth Vitamins

You may have noticed that lately your favorite celebrities are sporting longer and longer locks, with quite a few of them promoting Hair Growth Vitamins on their Instagram and Twitter feeds, citing them as the reason behind their long healthy manes!

My hair routinely goes through pretty intense damage from being colored and straightened and I figured that, along with the occasional keratin treatment, a daily hair growth supplement would help me keep my hair long and healthy. And it’s super easy to incorporate into my daily routine too.

But first a little background,

What vitamins are good for hair?

Vitamin C and B vitamins such as Biotin (aka Vitamin B7 or Vitamin H) and Niacin (Vitamin B3) are the essentials for hair growth, and for the most part, the best vitamins for hair growth all include those, along with some other additives to improve shine and silkiness.

Testing method

I tried 5 different brands of vitamins for hair growth. I took each brand for a month and recorded my results closely to nominate the best vitamins for hair growth!

My favorite hair vitamins are still part of my daily routine, and I couldn’t be happier with them! Read on to find out which ones they are.

Dafni Hair Brush Straightener Review

What’s the Dafni Hair Brush Straightener?

Dafni Hair Brush StraightenerThe Dafni hair brush straightener is the most sought-after hair straightening brush out there. It was the first on the market, created by an Israeli company from high quality materials. The other hair brush straighteners you see everywhere are basically a copy of the Dafni, and they use lower quality components to bring the price down (by a lot!)
So, is it really worth it?
Let’s find out.

What’s in the Box?Dafni Hair Brush Straightener Open Box

The Dafni has a pretty minimalistic box that features basically only the brush itself, an instruction manual and a little card labeled “How to Dafni?” which explains how to get the best results from the brush—more on that later.
The brush I got had a european-style two prong plug, but it came with a small adapter. I was told that the new units are shipping with a US cable, so no adapter is needed.

Hair Straightening Brush Review

The Hair Straightening Brush is a truly amazing new product. Why?

You’re late and your friends are already waiting for you. You get out of the shower and it’s a super humid day. Your hair is a rat’s nest.

You wanna straighten it, so you plug in your conventional flat iron straightener. You wait and wait for it to warm up, which takes almost ten minutes. You start straightening. You rush it, and you go out (lest your friends kill you!)

You’re in the club and you go to the restroom. You look in a mirror, and you see the back of your hair isn’t straight at all!

What is the Hair Straightening Brush?

If you’re here, chances are this has happened to you just as much as it’s happened to me. So, I went ahead and bought a Hair Straightening Brush that I’d seen on TV. It’s — pretty intuitively — a brush that straightens hair.

You may have seen the video that went viral on Facebook and Twitter. It makes the Hair Straightening Brush look almost magical. But is it? Read on to find out.

I received my brush two days after ordering, very quick (and free) delivery.

The Hair Straightening Brush Unboxed

The packaging is really nice, and pretty essential. It contains the brush itself and an instruction manual.

Hair Straightening Brush Box

I opened it up and plugged it in. The plug is one of those safe tester plugs with the button. The cord also swivels, so it doesn’t tangle, which is great — my flat iron cord is always jumbled.

The LCD turned on and I noticed that, upon first start, the temperature is set in Celsius. To change it to Farhenheit, you simply press the “plus” and “minus” buttons at the same time.

Hair Straightening Brush LCD Temperature C to FNow, every girl knows that a flat iron takes a while to heat up, but not the hair straightening brush: it reaches 365°F in 8 seconds! That is one of the things that saved me the most time.

The part that actually heats up is the base of the brush, which is a ceramic plate. There are plastic bristles all around, and those don’t heat up. It’s actually pretty impossible to scald yourself with this brush (a great thing for someone as clumsy as me). The red plastic studs in the bristles provide further protection, so that you can’t even burn your head.

Using the Brush that Straightens Hair

Using the brush itself is a breeze. The hair brush straightener can be used on dry hair, but I found I preferred to use the brush with my hair still slightly damp. And I also found it works better after using a good protein conditioner. For the absolutely best results though, what you need is a keratin hair treatment. Doing the treatment and then using this hair straightening brush, I was able to get the longest lasting smoothness that I was after: even after the hair starts to curl back up, it sort “flows together” and isn’t frizzy, which is nice.

The way it works is, you select the temperature with the plus and minus buttons and you get a readout on the LCD. I find that, in order to minimize frizziness, it’s best to use the lowest temperature you can get away with.

Usually, I get the best results if I section out my hair. An individual strand will take around 2-3 brush strokes before it’s straight to the point where I’m happy with it.

If you have some areas that are a little harder to straighten, like the top part in the back of your head, you can just dial in a higher temperature just for those parts. And that’s the great part: when you have a brush that straightens hair, all you have to do is brush the back of your head, and you will not get those creases that  you get with a flat iron!

Now, the only thing that’s not ideal is the placement of the buttons. They are on the side of the handle, exactly where you thumb will rest when using the brush. It’s not unusual to change the temperature by hitting the buttons accidentally as you’re using the brush straightener.

Other than that, the hair straightener brush has cut down the time it takes to straighten my hair by almost 20 minutes (no joke!)

UPDATE August 2016: Dafni vs Hair Straightening Brush

I wanted to try out the original Hair Straightening Brush, the Dafni, and see how it compared to the more inexpensive models you can find everywhere. Well, turns out the Dafni is actually worth it if you have a little bit of extra cash to spare (it’s come down in price lately!)
