What type of tools do you use on your natural hair? Do you use heat on a regular basis? If you’ve been following my natural hair journey, you know that I got a huge cut in early April due to excessive heat damage. Well since that experience, I’m overly protective about using any type of heat on my hair. That’s not to say I avoid heat completely. It’s just that I’m more proactive about protecting my strands. Luckily a few months ago I was sent the Olivia Garden NanoThermic Brush to review.
So what does the brush do? Basically, it combines a ceramic and tourmaline technology which both help with retaining heat longer, limits frizz and adds shine to your hair. It’s definitely important to look for some type of ceramic property in any kind of heat tool you use to avoid “frying” your hair. The Olivia Garden hair brush is great for different types of “blow out” styles, curls, flips or waves with the addition of your blow dryer. Now I’m not a big fan of blow drying my hair because I simply lack the patience to do so. But the NanoThermic brush does help with making the process a little quicker. If you have extremely coily hair, I definitely recommend you divide your hair into sections and detangle carefully before when blow drying.
In picture number 3 you can see that my hair is mostly blown out, but not fully straight. Of course, depending on your preference, you can totally get a sleeker and straighter look with this brush. For me, I tend to like my hair to be a little poofy.
When I was first sent the Oliva Garden brush, it looked a little bit intimidating. Well I’m happy to say that it was easy to use and I didn’t experience any breakage or heat damage! If you’re looking to upgrade your hair tool supply, I would certainly recommend adding this brush to your collection. Also, Oliva Garden has a ton of other professional quality products on their website that you can purchase to achieve that salon quality look.
