Argh! The effort it takes to dry and style hair can be time-sapping and exhausting! Luckily, these innovative and easy-to-use tools work on wet strands, cutting hair-primping time in half.
Pick a microfiber brush for heat-free styling.
Prefer to air-dry? Speed it up by detangling hair with a brush that has microfiber backing (its sponge-like material absorbs 30 percent more water than towel-drying) and ball-tipped bristles (they gently remove tough tangles). This helps prep hair faster for any dry-hair styling or product.

Use a ‘s team’ iron for sleek, straight hair.
Typically, we have to blow-dry hair before using a straightening iron, but this overexposes hair to damaging heat that can lead to breakage. Instead, the newest flat irons contain moistureextracting steam vents and ceramic plates that safely dry and straighten hair at the same time .

Try a heated spin brush for a bouncy blowout.
It can be tricky, and even painful, juggling a round brush in one hand and a blow-dryer in the other.
The fix? A hair-drying brush! The rotating head smooths and lifts locks up at the root while blasting hot air onto hair from all angles for mega volume once dry.
