I consider myself a pretty lazy person when it comes to my hair. I typically just let it air dry and don’t even put product in it….and on the rare occassion that I do actually style my hair, I still look for shortcuts, tools and products that make the process as easy and fast as possible.
I’ve tried out my fair share of hair gizmos and these are the 5 that I’ve used for years and happily recommend to anyone who asks. I have plenty of good things to say about each of them, so I made this super awkward video! Find the products listed out below:
($17): I have a sensitivity to sulphates, and if you feel like your hair is unnaturally dry, your scalp is at all itchy or irritable, you might have one, too. Cutting sulphates out of my hair products helped significantly, and my favorite sulphate-free shampoo and conditioner is this Winter Blend from Maple Holistics. Its not going to win any awards in the pretty packaging department, but it’s what’s inside that counts. This shampoo has a clean and safe ingredient list, but leaves your hair feeling clean, shiny and adds volume. Plus, the peppermint helps sooth your scalp while also stimulating the scalp to help promote hair growth. 4.5/5 stars on Amazon with 1415 reviews. BUY IT HERE
($23): I’ve tried really expensive blow dryers before, and although they are amazing I’ve realized that you can get the same power and speed at a much lower price point. After seeing this one on Amazon with 4 stars and over 2100 reviews I figured it was probably worth tossing the $23 its way and seeing if it performed as well as the reviews claimed it did. So far I have been very happy with this blow dryer! I think it performs just as well as high-end ones and I love the two attachments it comes with. 4/5 starts on Amazon with 2100 review. BUY IT HERE
($42): I had a chin-length bob 6 years ago and it was the most high-maintenance hairstyle I’ve ever had. My hair naturally flips out at the bottom so I spent a lot of time round-brushing my bob so it would flip under (#neveragain). Discovering this rotating round brush saved my arms (so tiring!) and saved me tons of time, too. My hair is long now, but I still find myself reaching for this tool a lot! I use it to get volume, flip layers in or out, or put a little flip into my bangs. 4 out of 5 stars on Amazon with 3300 reviews. BUY IT NOW
($58): Do you have hair that doesn’t seem to hold a curl? Or do you have a morning routine that doesn’t leave a lot of type for curling? Or are you just, like, super lazy (like me)? I’ve ha these things for about 8 years and I find them pretty useful. As I mention in the video, they are great for kids (because they will curl any hair and they’re comfortable to sleep in). I find Curlformers to be really easy to put in and easy to use. For me, it’s easy to get a wavy, natural looking curl and can make the style last 2 days. 4 out of 5 stars on Amazon with 157 reviews.

Voloom Hair Volumizing Iron ($129): This damn thing kept showing up as an ad on my Facebook newsfeed and I just kept finding myself intrigued by it. As I mentioned in the video, it’s a tool that I hang on to but don’t use all that often. It’s probably because I’m not that particular about volume (maybe I should be?), but when I do want some serious “oomph” in my hair I love just lightly using this around the back side of my head to instantly get lift. I’d compare it to teasing your hair, but in a way that is much more permanent. 4 our of 5 stars on Amazon with 389 reviews. BUY IT NOW
