    My hair stood up to the heat and humidity of the south wonderfully in the middle of July using a Kerastase anti-frizz heat protectant before blow drying (unsure the actual name, I think Kerastase Thermique?) + that brush.

    Thanks Kate; I do braid my hair a fair bit. Air drying my hair doesn’t look good, sadly.

    I have finally found an affordable, anti-frizz product that doesn’t weigh down my fine hair: Livon Serum, from Indian grocery store but also on Amazon. $7 for what will probably last 6 months to a year. Recommended to me by new boyfriend of all people.

    On the topic of hair, I tried switching to sulfate free shampoo and it left my hair a greasy mess near the root. Now more than ever a big fan of sulfates.

    Yeah, like I said above, sulfate free shampoo doesn’t remove silicone buildup (like what’s in your Kerastase), although some sulfate-free shampoos have this ingredient coco-something-betaine, which does remove silicones. I use one of those (Wella Elements shampoo), and it does a good job of keeping silicones from building up, then every few weeks I use a clarifying shampoo.

    I have highlights and fairly curly hair, so I like to avoid sulfates as much as possible, but they’re not the end of the world by any means.

    “The brush” dryer is part of Prime day! Mine still works after two years (knock on wood). I packed it on a short weekend trip and it was light enough and compact. Because of a new haircut I’ve had to use my straightener a little bit but otherwise I minimized the use of the straightener which keeps my hair healthy.

    Are we talking about the big round brush? Cause I love mine, but feel like it takes up so much space in my suitcase when I travel! It’s basically the size of my leg! I take it anyway. My hair has stood up to summer humidity in Nashville and Savannah with that brush.

    My first one crapped out after like a year — though tbh I think it may have had to do with an electrical issue going on in my apt and apt building at the time — and I repurchased.

    They sell a bunch of knockoffs on Amazon now for less than the Revlon-branded one, and Youtubers seem to think they work exactly the same. They definitely look the same.

    Yeah! I think of it as the size of my forearm but thicker… so about between a forearm and a leg 😉 it does fit in a small suitcase though!

    A knockoff is also part of Prime Day. Truly debating buying it to keep at BG’s cause I haaaate schlepping mine back and forth.

    Worth it, I think, and then you’ll have a backup if the current one breaks.

    Thanks for the heads up! Just bought myself a backup. This brush is seriously life changing.
