Moms and dads of daughters know all too well how hard managing little girl’s hair can be. Combing out long hair is a chore. End the struggling and tears with the Knot Genie. The Knot Genie magically gets rid of knots in even the curliest of hair. The unique bristle configuration gently removes tangles. The different lengths of bristles and the flexibility of the brush makes sure the hair’s cuticle stays unharmed, preventing breakage and split ends. The cloud-shaped top fits comfortably in your palm making it feel more like an extension of your hand than a grooming tool for ease of use. Say goodbye to the hair combing drama. Gently and quickly reveal smooth, shiny, tangle-free hair with a Knot Genie. The Knot Genie comes in a variety of colors and retails for $14.99.
I may not be the most eco-conscious gal around, but I try to do my part. I recycle. I take public transportation (or walk!) as much as possible. I’ve even planted a tree or two in my day. But if we’re being honest, my beauty routine isn’t doing the best job at minimizing my carbon footprint. You know, tons of hairspray, more than one occasion of leaving my flat iron on for hours at a time. But despite my missteps, I am open to revamping my beautifying to fit a more green regime (a little early 2011 resolution-making perhaps?), and the first step is to upgrade my arsenal of beauty tools with more eco-conscious options! For example, switch out your usual brush set for a sustainable Eco Tools set — you’ll be surprised how soft they are! And instead of a wooden hairbrush, opt for a more eco-friendly brush made from bamboo, like this one from Sephora Brand. And if you can’t live without your hair styling tools, blow-dry and flat iron with energy-conserving heated tools like this Sedu Revolution Pro Green Dryer and this Pure Heat Earthstik Flat Iron!
