How important is HEATING and COOLING when blow-drying your hair. It is not just your hair dryer, it is your brush too, damaging and scorching your hair.
Hot hair dryers not only cause an uneven flash drying effect that removes surface moisture, but it also removes the internal moisture in the hair. The cuticle becomes dry and brittle, when the hair is shaped this causes the cuticle to crack, which can cause breakage when simply brushing the hair. Most brushes today are more damaging than the hairdryer when blow-drying as the brush is in direct contact with the hair.
Our experience with the many hair dryers we have tested has shown the temperature is not evenly distributed from the nozzle. For example, we recently tested a hair dryer and found the temperature on one side of the nozzle reached 248f but on the other side only reached 80f. How do you think this is affecting your hair and your blow-dry?
You often find articles regarding hot hairdryers and even heat styling brushes but never are the two combined. Both cause scorching, color fading and limp lifeless hair.
The most common brushes, being aerators for heat styling were designed to increase heat. This can spell disaster for all hair types. It is suggested when using this type of brush on wet or damp hair, the hot air passes through the damp section, through the holes and out the other side, speeding up drying time. Something to think about, how efficiently can air pass through both the hair and holes on the barrel you would need more heat to make this effective which means you are frying the hair dry.
Hotheads hair brushes Intelligent Functions and Design features.
Our patented CAPTIVE ENDS™ speed up DRYING time by compressing and channeling the air around the brush is the most efficient concept to speed drying time without severe heat therefore reducing heat damage.
Our GENTLE TOUCH 3D BRISTLES™ allows the hair to float on a cushion of bristles preventing direct contact with a hot barrel surface preventing heat damage.
Our patented THERMAL CONDUCTIVE TECHNOLOGY moderates the heat between the Captive Ends™. This also cools down 30% faster giving you a stronger longer lasting style. Moderating heat with the ability to COOL FASTER saves time and prevent damage to the hair.
Today with all the hair coloring, bleaching and other chemical services being done it's more important than ever to consider the brush you select when heat styling.
We have completed an independent study confirming the heating and cooling concepts which are mentioned above on the Hotheads styling brushes.
