Hey guys! It’s been a hot minute since I’ve written anything about hair in the beauty world, so I figured it was overdue! I’ve recently come across some amazing hair tools and products, so of course I needed to share them with you!

If you’ve been following along for awhile, then you know that as a busy working career mom, I am ALWAYS on the hunt for ways to save time. And as much as I love to sit in front of my makeup table and play hair and makeup, I simply don’t have a lot of time to devote to it during the weekdays. PYT sent over a hair dryer, a flat iron, and some hair serum to try – I am pretty much mindblown.
You know what’s crazy? I’ll tell you. It’s nuts how a cheap hair dryer can change everything. I’ve had a really crappy one that I bought cheap a few years ago. I looked like a lion every time I used it. I just assumed with my dry, color-treated hair that I was always doomed for a frizz-fest. WRONG. With just my first use of the PYT Ionic Tourmaline Dryer, I knew things would never be the same (in a good way). Wow! I wish I had a lion’s mane pic to show you from my old dryer. This one is amazing.
Before I got started with the blowdryer, I applied a heat protectant that PYT sent over called Selfie Ready Gloss Serum. A little of this goes a long way! It contains argan oil and made my hair even more sleek and shiny!
Next, it’s time to get drying! I should be timing by drying time, because it’s FAST now that I have this dryer. My drying time is easily cut in half, so that alone is proof that quality is better than going the cheap route for a good hair dryer! It probably only takes me about 7 minutes to dry my whole head now and I have a lot of hair, so that’s saying something. It has 3 heat settings and 2 speed settings, so I love the control. I also love the swivel cord and hanger loop for convenience!
Now, here is a pic of my hair fully dry using this dryer BEFORE hair tool styling – It’s already relatively flat and I love it! It’s never been this sleek before simply after drying. This dryer is FAB.
Time to straighten! I’m using the PYT Zero Frizz Digital Straightener, and I must say, it is appropriately named! Watching my frizz disappear was like magic to say the least! It features titanium floating plates, and I love the rounded edges of the plates. You can use it to straighten, curl, add waves, or whatever you want! It also has a handy swivel cord and hanger loop.
I am AMAZED at how fast this thing heats up. It gets super hot, but I usually turn it down to 390 degrees. It was ready in probably less than one minute! It’s every busy momma’s dream come true, ha! Time to get to work straightening now! I like to section my hair off to make it easier.
When I get to the top layer, I go ahead and part it where I want it to hang so that when I straighten it, it lays better.
I love the results right away, every time! But I’ve also been adding a touch of the Selfie Ready Gloss Serum through the ends and flyaways just for that final dose of added shine and sleekness. I am loving the results.
All done now! I’m sleek and usually set for a couple days! If I sleep crazy, then it may require a touch up piece in the morning, but that’s it! Ready to roll for work!
Have you heard of PYT or tried them out yet? If not, I highly recommend them! I threw my old crappy hair dryer in the trash the very first time I used this new one from PYT. And my new straightener doesn’t even compare to my old one from a different (drugstore brand) – my hair is flat in no time with this one, which is definitely a professional grade.
What do you do to save time for your hair? I’d love to hear your thoughts, especially if you’ve tried out any products or hair tools from PYT! I’ve learned one thing for sure, I’ll never cheap out on buying hair tools again – I’m a believer! Let me know your thoughts below, and check out all that PYT has to offer over at www.pythair.com!
