Olivia Garden Nanothermic Brushes Review

Olivia Garden Nanothermic Brushes

Check out the photo of two Olivia Garden Nanothermic Brushes that I posted on instagram. I previously purchased the smaller of the two, and Olivia Garden just recently sent me the other one for review.

Olivia Garden Nanothermic Brushes

I actually became quite fascinated with hair brushes after buying several to try to reproduce the new hairstyle my hairdresser created for me in the salon. Nothing super-inventive. I have wavy hair, and I was letting it grow longer. I wanted to get it as straight as possible by using only a little bit of product, and blow drying it. After I still couldn’t do it, my next visit  was spent having a real heart-to-heart about my frustration. I told her that I can’t blame my tools  any more since I bought several new ones, and I still can’t get my hair to look like she does. After her initial response of, “That’s what you’re paying me for,” she gave me some “insider tips.”

She showed me the exact size and type of brushes that she used for my hair, and both of them were Olivia Garden Nanothermic Brushes. She said that it really does make a difference in trying to recreate what your stylist has done, and, although I’m going to paraphrase here since I can’t remember her every single word, but the bottom line is that she chooses the brushes that she uses on my hair based on the style that I want to for my hair, the texture of my hair, and finally, the length of my hair. All the stylists purchase their own tools, and she said that she bought Olivia Garden Nanothermic Brushes because they had the right sizes, and the best design.

When my hair stylist said she purchased the Olivia Garden brushes because they had the best design, I’m assuming she probably said something to me about Olivia Garden having the “latest ceramic technology.” The nanothermic brushes have a ceramic coated barrel, and that helps the brush to heat up faster and stay warm longer. That, in turn, helps to create a great hairstyle!

The Olivia Garden brushes have tourmaline ion technology, which adds shine to the hair, helps to stop hair from being frizzy, and is anti-static.  The brushes also have nano-silver technology that gives anti-bacterial protection, and makes hair healthier and easier for someone to style.  There are large vents in the brushes, which means greater airflow and less time spent drying your hair! The bristles on Olivia Garden brushes are special wavy heat resistant ones that have soft tips–that means it won’t scratch your scalp!

See the handle?  There’s a snag-free ring, and a retractable sectioning pick!


The most important thing to me was the way the handle (grip) feels when I style my hair. It has what’s called an ergonomic handle, and I certainly appreciate that it’s lightweight.

I purchased the smaller of the two brushes at Ulta, and I love using that for my bangs (1  3/4″). I definitely recommend that. The bigger brush (3 1/4″) was sent to try for the rest of my hair. I must admit, it’s a little too big for me to try to handle for my hair at its present length, so I’m going to purchase another Olivia Garden one that has just a little bit smaller barrel (2  3/4″). Definitely recommend that you try the brushes out at an Ulta, or go to the link to find out where there is a location of a salon in your area: http://oliviagarden.com/purchaselocations.php

Disclosure: I purchased one brush, and received one. All links are for your convenience only.

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant Review

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant is one of several products that I purchased from the cruelty free skincare company, Dermalogica. I have reviewed a Dermalogica product before (the Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Booster). The first product I’d like to tell you about is one that I have been using several times a week; it’s the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant. I first started testing this product over nine weeks ago, in the very cold winter that we had on the east coast.
