T3 SinglePass Flat Iron
Damp hair is an open target for frizz. When your hair isn't properly sealed with heat, the cuticle stays open. Water molecules in the air then wedge themselves in between, expanding their size. This amazing hair tool, although pricey, has three heat settings, depending on hair type, which takes the guesswork out of which temperature is right for you. Plus, the plates stay hot as you glide from root to tip, eliminating the need to go over each section of hair multiple times, which causes damage.
