I really like testing out a brand new hair software. It’s most likely one in every of my favourite features of what I do right here on The Small Issues. From “first impressions” movies to academic tutorials, I hope my critiques and demonstrations of a hair software are useful to you when you’re available in the market for one thing.
As I’m positive , there are a number of blow-dry brushes available on the market already and extra are rolling out. I not too long ago gave the T3 Airebrush a try to actually cherished it. It’s totally different than the Airebrush Duo as a result of it solely has one oval-shaped head that’s not detachable. The Airebrush Duo has a spherical brush attachment, in addition to a paddle brush attachment.
I additionally not too long ago purchased and examined out the Shark SmoothStyle Heated Comb Straightener + Smoother. That is similar to the T3 Airebrush but it surely additionally consists of two sections of a heated comb to run your hair by way of for smoothing, curling, or straightening.
After sharing that video, my remark part was filled with questions asking which software was higher. It’s not an apples-to-apples comparability so I’ll break down what the advantages of every software are so you can also make the most effective choice for your self and your hair kind.
Earlier than I dive in, I simply need to remind you that there are all the time going to be newer, higher, extra superior, extra personalized instruments that arrive available on the market. That’s simply what we do on this society. The arrival of a more recent software doesn’t instantly negate a purchase order you made. If a software works for you, then it’s a win. We’re not all the time going to agree on what makes an ideal hair software. I learn a remark *this morning* from somebody saying the Dyson Airstrait is superior and I actually hope to by no means use that software on myself once more. I didn’t prefer it for ME.
When you’re searching for a hair software, take note of the next issues: wattage, temperature, temperature changes (if it has that), and materials.
The upper the wattage, in a dryer, the stronger the motor. The stronger the motor, the higher airflow to dry your hair sooner. The very best-wattage blow dryer I’ve ever used is the Rusk Pace Freak at 2000 watts. That dryer is *quick*. It was my favourite dryer to make use of behind the chair. The Dyson blow dryer has 1600 watts, which can also be very highly effective.
The T3 Airebrush Duo AND the T3 Airebrush have 900 Watts. It’s not going to be the strongest airflow you’ve ever felt. You’ll completely must dry your hair to about 80% dry, whether or not by air drying or blowing dry.
The Airebrush Duo has 5 warmth settings, 3 velocity settings, a quantity burst choice, and a cool shot. It has two totally different brush head attachments. You will get quite a lot of outcomes with this software. This might be a pleasant choice for somebody with effective, delicate, or hair susceptible to wreck because of the wide range of warmth choices. The comb attachments are ceramic coated to encourage a clean completed outcome.
The new Airebrush has 3 warmth settings and a couple of velocity settings, in addition to a cool shot. The oval-shaped brush with a ceramic floor encourages clean hair with much less frizz. You’ll possible have a neater time getting a giant, bouncy blowout-like end with this software because of the oval form. This might be nice for medium to effective hair, wholesome or broken. In case your hair is basically thick, chances are you’ll discover that it takes you a very long time to dry.
The Shark SmoothStyle can also be 900 watts, the identical as each T3 instruments. This software has the identical form head because the T3 Airebrush but in addition has two sections of a hard and fast heated comb to run by way of your hair after you’ve completed drying it. You can’t flip the heated comb part on if you are drying, it’s a totally different mode.
This software could be an amazing choice for somebody who actually wants additional warmth smoothing to cut back frizz. It’s also possible to get a pleasant flip within the hair when you maintain the software vertically (see right here). The heated comb is a hard and fast 420 levels, which is toasty. It would be best to regulate your hair and ensure to make use of a warmth protector. This software additionally has ceramic-coated plates, which is a good characteristic of those blow-dry brushes.
SO WHICH ONE IS THE BEST?!
Once more, all of them have totally different options, so it isn’t an apples-to-apples comparability.
The Shark SmoothStyle is the bottom value, however that doesn’t all the time imply it’s the most suitable choice for you. We’ve all seen or skilled the harm from a budget 1st version of the Revlon One-Step (earlier than they adjusted the warmth settings). The T3 Airebrush Duo is sweet for anybody who needs to have a curled finish from a spherical brush or a clean, straight end from the paddle brush. And the newer T3 Airebrush, with the oval attachment, is a plain and easy, easy blow-dry brush.
With observe, you’d get an amazing outcome from any 3 of those instruments, you simply need to determine what you need that outcome to be with a view to make an knowledgeable choice.
In the end, have a look at the wattage, the fabric (like “ceramic coated”), and the temperature choices whenever you’re procuring.
Personally, a blow-dry brush, regardless of how good, won’t ever absolutely change a curling iron and flat iron for me. I wish to have styling choices through the use of these instruments. I’m actually proud of the T3 Airbrush with the oval form. I additionally obtained an amazing outcome with the Shark SmoothStyle and preferred that I may put slightly bend in my ends with the identical software.
Assess your hair, and your preferrred outcome, and use the data you’ve concerning the instruments to make the correct buy for you!
