How to Add Damage-Prevention to Your Hair Regimen For $100
Updated: Jun 30, 2019
We're pretty sure good hair days have health benefits.
One of the biggest perks of air-drying your hair? It minimizes the image caused by heat tools. But for many of us, blow-drying really is most convenient option for looking presentable on-the-reg. Right now I'm testing the blush pink Eva NYC hair dryer, which uses red beam far-infrared technology to minimize damage done to the hair follicle. I should also mention that it’s not hot. It’ll give you a nice “warm” blow-dry that won’t make up break a sweat, even in this summer heat.
For just $100, the technologically advanced beauty tool coolly minimizes frizz and dries. Literally! I ussully grab a hair oil like Drybar 100 Proof, $36 — which shortens drying times and minimizes heat exposure — but this cool-temp blow dryer bypasses damage altogether.
Before receiving my hi-tech blow dryer, I had been using one by Tyme that is great for it's "quiet" setting. Even though it always makes my hair texture so much smoother, style nicer, and with longer-lasting results, I am too impatient to blow-dry regularly.
Once my lifestyle is more active (i.e. starting in August when I move to France), I'll have to rely on heat tools (and converters) to make my locks look public-appropriate. In other words, damage-prevention will once again be a concern for which Eva NYC has provided the solution.
Since I am loving the results so far, I wanted to share the damage-protection hair regimen I tested it with below.
This is the top-seller on Amazon. The shampoo smells like apples, feels clarifying, and the products leave your hair with shine. ACV is a wonder-ingredient for all sorts of beauty and wellness woes, from acne to pH, and I'm looking forward to it's benefits for my scalp. The brand is great as long as you're not looking for a luxury product.
I am in love with the entire Argan-based True Soft collection, including the shampoo, conditioner, masque, and oil. I use hair masks regularly, and this is the one I'm currently using.
This is a holy grail product for me that I use almost every time I wash my hair. The price above reflects the travel size tube. A comparable alternative from the same line is R+Co Waterfall Moisture + Shine Lotion, $29, from their Fred Segal collab.
You can never have too many hair "turbies." They wick away the moisture without all the rubbing, which creates split ends. I love wearing them to towel-dry my hair for as long as possible before blow-drying to make the process faster. Aquis makes a well-known hair towel worth checking out, too.
The tourmaline-infused, ceramic dryer that uses red beam far-infrared technology to dry hair. It cuts down on drying time, fights frizz, and heats from the inside out to protect the hair's cuticle.
Anti-frizz, softening shine with zero greasiness that I added later when my ponytail felt coarse. The line is vegan, cruelty-free, and I love the True Soft collection.
