It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Okay, it’s not Christmas yet, but when sales events like Black Friday and Cyber Monday come around, it feels like Santa got a head start on the holiday delivery. If you’re anything like us, you use this time to buy presents at reasonable price points to stretch your dollar while still getting some high-quality goodies. We also love to scour Cyber Monday deals to find the best tools and products to help us get the best hair year ever (and beyond!).
We’ve rounded up a quick guide on what you should look for online for the best ways to get the biggest bang for your buck when it comes to purchasing styling tools. Read on:
Cyber Monday: What to Look Out For
We’ve all been down that road: We needed a simple blowdryer to achieve a quick and easy hairstyle at home, so we buy a cheap one to get the job done. However, after a few months, that blow-dryer either damages our hair over time or has to be thrown out because it no longer works. For the best Cyber Monday deals, check out your favorite beauty chains or local drugstores. If the deal makes sense, invest in an ionic blowdryer, which can help cut your drying time in half, and prevent damaged hair since they are designed to help retain moisture during the blow-drying process.
As an awesome supplement, pick up a blow-drying cream to help protect and pre-style hair during the process. We love the end results we get from TRESemmé Thermal Creations Blow-Dry Balm.
2. Silk Pillowcases
Time and time again we praise the benefits of using silk pillowcases—they help prevent dry hair, tangles and knots while you sleep, not to mention apparently protect the skin on your face from wrinkles and creases. However, some silk pillowcases are sold at a pretty hefty price point. Take advantage of snagging one during Cyber Monday. Pro tip: Get a pillowcase in a color that matches your bed set!
To make bedtime even better, invest in a shampoo and no-rinse conditioner duo to help retain even more moisture and keep away the static and/or frizzies. We like the slip we get from The Good Stuff Gentle Shampoo and The Good Stuff Frizz-Control Oil.
3. Curling Iron
Not all curling irons are created equal (and that’s a good thing). Cyber Monday is a great opportunity to build your curling iron collection! When shopping, look for a curling wand that helps give you flawless wave hairstyles or look for curling irons with a large barrel for loose curls or a skinny barrel for tight curls. Finish your look with a curl-friendly hair spray, like TRESemmé TRES Two Micro-Mist Level 2 Hold Curl Hair Spray, for sexy definition without the crunch.
4. Flat Iron
It’s finally time to get rid of that flat iron that’s been snagging your hair. Flat irons that are coated tend to chip. When shopping for a flat iron deal during Cyber Monday, read the details before getting excited about the sale price. What to look for: Make sure the tool has ceramic or tourmaline plates as opposed to being coated; choose a flat iron that allows you to control the temperature.
Boost the shine in your newly-ironed locks with a salon-grade oil that helps condition post-mechanical heat exposure as well. We love the sheen and high-end nourishment our locks get from TIGI Copyright Custom Create Colour Lustre Oil.
