My DryBar Product Obsession

I desperately wish there was a DryBar around where I live. It is probably a blessing in disguise there isn’t; I strongly dislike how long it takes me to dry my hair and would definitely be visiting the DryBar a few times a week if there were one close to me.

There may not be a DryBar in Nashville {I have my fingers crossed one will open soon}, but luckily there is a Sephora five minutes away from me, and they just happen to carry basically all of the DryBar products! They may just be hair products, but they are hair products that are beyond amazing.

It all started a few years ago when I decided to treat myself to the 3-Day Bender, aka the best curling iron, ever. After my first DryBar hair tool purchase I was officially hooked. Over the past couple years I have slowly incorporated and replaced other hair products with DryBar products, and I am pretty convinced my hair could not survive without the products created by the DryBar. If you think I am exaggerating just try the shampoo… Here are a few a the DryBar Products that I use regularly as part of my hair routine.

Texas TeaShampoo// When I purchased the DryBar hair dryer a sample of the Texas Tea Shampoo and Conditioner were included. I have never been one to invest a lot in shampoo - I am usually a Pantene or at the most a Redken person. The first time I used Texas Tea Shampoo my reaction was WOW! I have never used a shampoo that has made my hair feel so clean and soft. The Sake Bomb shampoo is definitely on my list of products to try but right now I am loving Texas Tea. Side note: the bottle may not be very big but it last me usually around two and a half months, which I think is a decent amount of time.

HotToddy// Hot Toddy is the DryBar hear protector and frizz fighter product. Personally, I hate the feeling when products are weighting down my hair. All the DryBar products I have used thus far have felt light and honestly they serve there purpose, smell wonderful, and does not leave behind the yucky feeling of having a weighted down or over styled hair. I usually only wash and try my hair every other day or so, but when I do a heat protector is vital to my hair health; I have curly somewhat thick hair that takes about 30 – 40 minutes to blow dry. On top of the excessive time it takes to dry my hair I usually run a curling iron over it afterwards. Needless to say I would be up a creek without some sort of heat protector and Hot Toddy is my favorite heat protector I have ever used.

MoneyMaker// I cannot put into words my dislike of using hairspray. I usually never use a hairspray: I hate the way it smells, how it makes my hair feel, plus my hair usually holds its style so I usually hold off on using the hair spray. Money Maker hairspray, however, is a different story. I honestly use Money Maker just for the simple fact that it smells good. As far as functionality goes it is a flexible hold hairspray that does not leave behind a sticky feeling and allows you to easily brush your hair out after using it, plus it does a pretty good job of keeping hair in place.

ButtercupBlow Dryer// Best hair dryer I have ever used. Believe me when I say I put hair dryers to the test – a hair dryer usually last me about 6 months, at the most, and I have had the Buttercup for 8 and it is still going strong! Since I switched to this hair dryer I have noticed my hair seems to be healthier and it does not take as long to dry with a DryBar hair dryer as it would with a hair dryer one might buy at Target or such.

Hold MeHair Clip// I usually dry my hair in sections {unless I am tight on time}, and these hold me clips are perfect to hold hair that has already been dried out of the way. These clips are a little different from other clips due to the fact that they have an “alligator jaw” which better holds the hair and holds large amounts of hair.

The 3-DayBender// The curling iron that started something that over time evolved onto the DryBar Product Obsession. My two favorite aspects about this product is that it takes litterally 5 seconds to heat up before it is ready to use and because of the spinning barrel feature you do not have to have the heat on your hair for very long.

Oh, did I mention that DryBar just happens to have a YouTube Channel {click here to see} that shows you how to give yourself a blowout…

  9. I love Drybar! I restrain myself to special occasions, but there is just something so luxurious about getting your hair done, enjoying a glass of champagne, mini cookies and watching chick flicks!
