How I Cut My Styling Time in Half, with T3 Micro
I’m going to get something out of the way that many people aren’t able to say – I love my hair. It is the one ‘body part’ (yes I know it’s technically not a body part) that you’ll never hear me complaining about. It’s thick, voluminous, uber-cooperative, and everything I’ve always wanted it to be.
My hair is naturally pin straight, so when it comes to styling, I love a good beachy wave or a loose curl – two styles that I like to think I’ve finally mastered after all of these years!
Many people are often surprised when I tell them that my hair routine isn’t all that complicated. I don’t use any product, aside from the occasional spritz of sea salt spray and have a few key styling tools from a brand I’ve been loyal to for many years – which I’m so excited to tell you all about today!
I first discovered T3 Micro when I was staying at a friends house and was in need of a hairdryer. She lent me her T3 dryer and said, “prepare for a major life change.” I laughed it off and started the dreaded 25-35 minute process of blowdrying my oh-so thick hair.
15 minutes later, I had, in fact, undergone a major life change. That miracle of a hairdryer dried my hair in 15 minutes flat; it literally cut my dying time in HALF! I was kind of shocked, kind of excited and 100% convinced that I’d found my new favorite brand.
Fast forward to about 7 years later, and I was still using that same amazing hair dryer. When T3 got in touch about working together and trying out a few of their new products, it was a no-brainer. This is a brand that I have supported for years and to this day, stand behind because of its incredible quality – so I was more than excited to try their new Singlepass Luxe flat iron and Featherweight Luxe 2i blowdryer.
The Singlepass Luxe is a 1″ flat iron with T3 Micro’s classic tourmaline + ceramic plates. It’s technology delivers consistent heat without overexposure and gets the job done in one pass. Really though, who has ever heard of a flat iron that did it’s job in one pass?!
While straight hair is not typically my go-to, I always have my flat iron handy for straightening my ends for a more beachy, undone look, and for curling (yes, flat irons can curl, and they can curl GOOD!) and was so impressed with how quick and easy it was to style.
Like my whirl trio, the Singlepass Luxe has 5 different heat settings, maxing out at 410°F. Somehow, that high-heat leaves my hair feeling softer than it did before I used it. It also has a one-hour automatic shut off, which has saved me quite a few heart attacks on my way to work.
The next day, I gave the T3 Micro Featherweight Luxe 2i a go. Admittedly, I did so reluctantly, because I loved my old T3 hairdryer so much! What I loved about the featherweight 2i though was that it was much quieter than my previous hairdryer, and that it came with an extra heat setting (3 in total). But my favorite part? It cut my impressive 15-minute dry time by 3 additional minutes. For all of you out there with thinner hair, you’re probably looking at a 5-8 minute dry time, which is unheard of.
This dryer combines tourmaline + SoftAire technology that results in a quick, healthy dry with reduced frizz and a glossy finish.
Um, hello dream blowdry.
I am more than excited that I’ve introduced two amazing new styling tools into my routine, but I also have a few other T3 favorites to share! Check out all of my must-have tools below:
