Roots Ceramic Barrel Hair Brush | Review

Don’t we all love that freshly blow-dried hair look right after we step out of a salon? I’m sure that most of you have also struggled with replicating that shiny hairdo at home. Today I will be talking about a hair tool that will give you an almost perfect salon-like blow-dried hairdo at home. I am referring to the Roots Ceramic Barrel Hair Brush, something that has salvaged my frizzy hair over the past few weeks.

Roots is a brand that I trust blindly for hair brushes of all kinds, and this ceramic hair brush was no exception. The brand offers ceramic hair brushes in different barrel sizes ranging from 25mm to 58mm and I chose the largest barrel size because I was looking for more natural bouncy waves as opposed to tighter ones. This brush is extremely sturdy and quite heavy too, but the long handle makes it extremely easy to use. All you have to do is wrap your hair around the barrel and then blow dry them while moving the brush downwards, unraveling the wound up hair from the roots to the tips, just like they do at the salon.

While this technique of blow drying may sound quite complex, the design of this hair brush makes it fairly easy to maneuver the hair, because it has tiny bristles that help to separate the strands without causing any entanglement. These bristles ensure that you don’t end up with knotty hair while blow drying which will happen if you use a regular round brush instead of a ceramic one. Also, this brush gets heated up under the blow dryer, thereby helping the hair hold their shape.

Day 1 Hair

As of now, I am able to straighten my hair using this brush and am also able to create gentle waves at the ends. Of course, the hairstyles created using this brush won’t last as long as those created using a straightener or a curling wand because those tools work at a higher heat. However, this brush helps you style your hair in a jiffy and provides a sleek shiny look to them as well. It has worked really well at taming my frizz and at providing some much-needed shine to my mane.

Day 2 Hair

Available at a fraction of the price of other styling tools, this brush priced at INR 495 is a must-have if you blow dry your hair and are willing to spend a few extra minutes at it to get a more polished hairdo. This is definitely one of the best purchases I have made this year!

Loreal Professionnel Tecni Art Constructor Hair Spray| Review

Smooth and glossy hair have always been a cult favorite but we all go through those Bohemian phases when we can’t do without some texture in our tresses. The Loreal Professionnel Tecni Art Constructor is a great way to add a subtle hold to your hair, without weighing them down with too much product.

This hair spray has a thermo-active formula, which means that it gets activated by heat. You can spray this product on the sections of your dry or damp hair and can proceed to tease them with the help of a hair dryer. It offers protection from the heat and provides a medium hold to the hair, without making them crunchy. You will not be able to obtain dramatic volume or texture with this product but it helps to slightly lift the roots and removes the “sleekness” to add some body to your locks. It has a mild fragrance that doesn’t last for too long after usage. I haven’t used it while straightening or curling my hair but I have heard that it works well with those styling tools too.

Overall, I think that this product is excellent for providing some volume to the hair without going too overboard. However, a 150ml can is priced at more than INR 1000 in India, which I feel is quite steep for a hair spray. There are more affordable options from Toni & Guy that do a similar job but in case you find it at a cheaper price where you live then you might enjoy this product if you like light weight hair sprays.

I hope that you found this review useful. You can buy the Loreal Professionnel Tecni Art Constructor Spray here.
