Pink is everywhere (even refs in the NFL games!) to acknowledge and support Breast Cancer Awareness Month. My mother is a brave breast-cancer survivor, so I love supporting the cause whenever possible. HairArt International, which is a highly respected family-owned leader in hair tools and appliances, has put out a special series H3000 Collection of high-tech heat styling designs in pink which were created to benefit the National Breast Cancer Foundation. NBCF will receive 10% of the proceeds from this fabulous collection, which is not only fun and girly, but incredibly functional. Ever since I heard Ken Paves say that wet hair is particularly vulnerable to breakage, I’ve winced when tugging a brush through my long hair after a shower. That all changed when I discovered HairArt’s H3000 Tourmaline Ceramic Boar Bristle Round Brush which is gentle and forgiving, but still gets the job done. I’ve often heard that boar bristles are the big secret behind luscious, healthy hair, while working well with heat styling. The brush does add lustrous shine, great volume allows for styling minus the static. This well-balanced ionic brush features a ceramic barrel to distribute heat evenly and a lightweight handle for easy styling. I’m forever looking for an outstanding comb that I can use for precise styling and straightening, and HairArt’s comb series fits the bill. They are specially designed to resist heat and add extra shine to hair while resisting that pesky static cling.
With heat styling, it makes a huge difference if conditioning products are designed especially to be activated with heat. Lately I’ve been treating my hair to KMS California Freeshape Deep Conditioner, and it’s been totally spoiling my tresses by taming coarseness and smoothing cuticles. My nourished hair feels so silky after 2 minutes, I barely recognize it! When I comb through with the HairArt brush or comb, there’s barely any resistance, plus it styles easily and actually holds longer. Once a week usually on a Saturday morning when I get to dally in the shower for a bit longer, I use KMS MoistRepair Therapy Treatment. It’s specially formulated for coarse or chemical-treated hair. The treatment restores bounce and health to lackluster hair in just 5 minutes by penetrating deeply to reconstruct damaged strands. I can’t stop touching my hair afterwards, and the light scent is clean and fresh.
