From formulas that extend the life and hold of a curl to those that impart an invisible layer of heat protection—where there’s a tool, there’s a haircare product doing the heavy lifting. See how our styling tools and products Join Forces below, all of which you can purchase together as part of a bundle online right now.

Electrical Event Perfect Pairs - Mermade Blow Dry Brush & Styling Primer-min.png

Any kind of heat styling warrants hair protection; what we love about this duo is Mermade has created its Style Primer with the Hair Blow Dry Brush in mind. The primer’s unique formula is packed with antioxidants (hello, argan oil, sunflower extract and soybean) and doesn’t contain sulphates or parabens—it’s even safe for human hair extensions.

Spritz it through your strands, and it’ll help speed up your blow dry while conditioning, hydrating, detangling and preventing breakage. It’s the perfect match for the Mermade Hair Blow Dry Brush—a unique tool with an oval brush that combines drying and styling in one, no matter your hair type or length.

Do you apply something to protect your strands before you pick up the hairdryer in the morning? Maybe it’s time to start.

Take Sexy Hair’s Style Hair Prep Me: a 230-degree heat protection blow dry primer that protects your hair against heat damage with a refreshing citrus scent to boot.

On the topic of things that help protect your strands, we think the Halo by Elchim 8th Sense Run Digital Hair Dryer is a no-brainer. It uses clever ceramic heat tech to gently heat the hair from the inside out which not only cares for your cuticles (the protective layer on every strand) but keeps frizz at bay and encourages shine.
