The problem with products that promise to minimize your blow-drying time is that often they just end up drying out your hair. That's where tools and technique come into play. The Cricket Company's Ionic Balancing round brushes ($10 to $11) are available in three sizes — 33 mm, 44 mm, and 53 mm — and are designed with a ceramic barrel vent system for quicker drying. The bristles are also positioned at different lengths, so tangling becomes less of a problem. Instead, hair is left soft, smooth, and free from static and frizz, due in part thanks to ionic technology. There's even a removable sectioning pick at the bottom of the base, so you can do some serious Jessica Rabbit-style deep parting with ease.
