Summer can really wreak havoc on our hair. Between environmental stresses like UV rays, chlorine, sea salt and color processing, hair can take a major beating and look dry, dull and brittle. And, if you’re like me and prone to extreme frizz during the summer months, having the right hot tools is of the utmost importance for maintaining sleek, smooth locks.
We know that applying extreme heat to hair can also be damaging, but luckily there are some fabulous hot tools out there with special technology that won’t add additional stress and breakage to hair. In fact, some of them actually work to repair damage and prevent further breakage from happening.
Here are some of the best hot tools that will keep your hair looking fresh, healthy and beautiful all summer long!

The tri-zone technology means you can style faster with less heat for frizz-free hair that is stronger, shinier, and healthier looking.
T3 Featherweight 2 Dryer: There’s a reason why this dryer has remained a classic with a huge celebrity stylist following. Different than regular dryers (which use forceful wind flows that can damage the cuticle and cause split ends, frizz, and flyaways), the Featherweight 2 is powered by T3 Tourmaline and SoftAire Technologies. This advanced airflow technology generates a high volume of ion-enriched air that quickly dries large sections of hair, helping to retain natural moisture for healthy, soft and shiny results.
Cricket Ultra Smooth Professional Dryer: A must have for those with frizz-prone hair! Before hitting your hair, air passes through the Argan Oil and Keratin Protein infused filter. Argan Oil helps hydrate and repair damaged hair, while smoothing the hair cuticle for a healthy, conditioned look. Keratin Protein adds improved strength, manageability and shine, while reducing frizz.
