7 Innovative Tools For Healthier Hair

Hair tools take a heaping amount of criticism when it comes to causing damage to your ’do. The high heats and the wear and tear tresses almost always take make hair-protecting products a prerequisite before using one—and split ends and breakage almost a guaranteed end result. But there is a better way to get your strands into a perfectly coiffed—and healthy—style with these seven innovative tools.

Agave Healing Oil Vapor Iron

This at-home vapor iron is just as good as any in-salon treatment that boasts of silkier strands. It has a tiny cartridge where you add in the botanical-powered oil; the vapor from the heat then works with the product and your hair to deliver a ton of conditioning, hydrating and strengthening ingredients so hair feels soft to the touch and looks oh-so-shiny and sleek. $149, sephora.com

CHI Touch 2 Dryer

Its futuristic touch-screen control and color-coded dials make this the ultimate technological-tailored blowout machine. It not only provides really unique customization options, as you control the temperature, speed and even the ionic output (more ions for thicker hair, while normal and fine hair needs less), but it also has a really easy-to-use built-in stand for hands-free drying—so you can successfully mimic salon-worthy bounce and shine at home. $190, ulta.com

Tangle Teezer

If you have the habit of ripping through wet hair with a brush, this tiny handheld tool is for you. It literally glides through hair, doesn’t rip or tangle and gets through even the most stubborn of knots. The result is less breakage, less split ends and smoother, shinier strands. $20, tangleteezer.com

Thairapy 365 Wet/Dry Styling Iron

Designed to be used on damp (and dry) strands, this moisture-infusing iron is perfect for really thick and coarse hair. It has wider plates, so you don’t have to do as many passes—plus, since you don’t have to add the blow-dry prep step into the mix (doing it on towel-dried, air-dried hair totally works), you significantly cut back on styling time. $250, bloomingdales.com

7/7

Drybar 3-Day Bender

Quicker styling is always a plus, but less time for heat on your hair also means you can walk away from a curling iron without doing a world of damage.
