Phyto 7 & 9

Avoid hot styling tools as much as possible. If you must blow dry, always first coat and protect your hair with a leave-in conditioner like Phyto 7 or Phyto 9. Never focus the air flow on one section of the hair longer than a few seconds. Rotate the dryer back and forth to prevent burning hair.

When possible, use a blow dryer on medium speed, cool heat with the air flow directed from the roots to the ends. This is the least damaging way to use a dryer and still achieve good results.

If your blow dryer doesn’t have a cool setting but does have a cold shot button, use this at the end to seal and protect the hair.

When possible limit your use of the blow-dryer to just your bangs or limited sections of your hair. Look for ways to get maximum coverage with minimal heat exposure.

Mason Pearson Hairbrush

This brush is generally recommended for normal to thick hair of short to medium length, or as a second brush for on-the-go use for any hair length. It has 5 rings of tufts of carefully selected pure boar bristle, each of which contains a nylon strand.

The durable nylon strands, with specially rounded ends, are longer than the boar bristles and penetrate through the hair to massage and stimulate the scalp, bringing out the natural oils. Overall size is 6 3/4 inches by 2 inches. Mason Pearson’s ingenious brush construction achieves the desired type of scalp stimulation by adjusting automatically to the contour of the scalp without irritation.
