Kate Hudson and I have a lot in common. Besides our successful careers in Hollywood and our marriage to Black Crowes front-man Chris Robinson, we also have trouble taming our curly locks. But believe it or not, that's not where our similarities end. In a recent interview, Kate revealed that as a teen, she wasn't aware that she had curly hair, and would brush it out when it dried and it'd turn into this weird, poofy, triangular helmet of hair that she described as a "nightmare." Um, hello! Samesies. My hair in high school was horrible because of the very same thing.
But, where Kate's life and mine finally diverge is how we decided to treat the problem, once we discovered we had one. Behold! My secret to taming wild, curly-ish, and frizzy hair:
That, my friends, is a Silver Conair Ion Shine Styler Hairdryer that retails for $24.99, and trust me, it's your new favorite hairstyling tool.
It's a miracle worker. Jump out of the shower with wet hair, let it air dry for 15 minutes or so, then fire up this sassy bitch and let her do the hard work for you.
No more fussing with those round brushes and that horrible two-handed approach. All you have to do is bend over and brush your hair with this dryer from back to front, and boom, straight, dry hair in minutes.
Dry less to leave in larger waves, or polish off your look with a straightening iron if you want pin-straight locks. At the risk of sounding like an infomercial, it really is just that easy.
And if you're somewhat uncoordinated like me and can't imagine trying to use both hands to dry your hair, then this really is a life-saver.
Don't have Kate-Hudson-high-school hair? Use this dryer, like I do, and you won't regret it.
What's your blow-drying routine?
