Hair Prep 

Organika Coconut Oil, $25
To control locks, tame any frizz and create shine, coconut oil is the best weapon.  Place a pea-size amount of coconut oil on your ends before blow drying and comb through the hair. This works as a natural detangler as well as adding lots of amazing moisture into the hair. Bonus: if you add 2 tbsp. of coconut oil to a spray bottle filled with warm water you can spritz the oil on to your hair as the final treatment to get rid of flyaways.   
Revlon Uniqone All in One Hair Treatment, $19.95
Another great weapon is a leave-in-conditioner which gives a host of benefits to all hair types. A good hair treatment provides 10 benefits to all hair types, from shine and frizz control to colour fade protection and UVA/UVB protection. This is one solution that adds shine to the hair and controls frizz whilst adding silky smoothness and enviable body and volume.

Hair Brushes

The Body Shop Detangling Comb, $7
A wide tooth comb has a few teeth with wide gaps between them, which works wonders on detangling wet curly hair or even brushing out your dry, curly locks with minimal frizzing. 
Conair Tourmaline Smoothers Detangle & Style, $12.99
A vent brush is also a fabulous detangler but it allows the hair to flow easily through the brush which allows more heat from the blow dryer to get directly to the hair. This can help improve drying time, and allow you to hold the hair in certain positions to achieve quick setting of the hair. Another plus is it is great on all hair lengths. 
Conair Tourmaline-Ionic Condition & Anti-Frizz, $12.99
A round brush has the ability to create smooth styles with movement as it has a ceramic centre which holds the heat from your dryer creating curls, waves and lots of volume. We always recommend having more than one and wrap your hair around the brush, leaving it in to set to create a fabulous bouncy curl. Always make sure you choose the right brush for your hair length, small for short, medium for shoulder length hair and large for hair below the shoulder.

Styling Tools

Sephora Collection Mini Blast Blow Dryer, $33
Appliances that use materials like ceramic and tourmaline heat up faster and get hotter than traditional appliances and because ionic ones help water evaporate faster, they all result in a shorter dry time, which does less damage to the hair. Who doesn’t want that? It fights frizz and produces shinier, healthy hair.
Hot Tools 24k Gold 1” Curling Iron, $89.95
Bad hair days can not be avoided but having a curling iron can act as a weapon to combat those pesky hairs. If your hair is a mess, you can fine tune some pieces using the curler and turn your hair from messy to fabulously touseled in no time. With a curler you can create loose, beachy waves for those casual days and then create glamous curls for night outs. It’s a tool you always want to have in your arsenal.
