It has to have been more than five years since I’ve replaced my blow dryer. I usually just wait until one dies to buy another. But I couldn’t resist trying the Barbar Eco 8000 Blow Dryer ($150, barbarartist.com) because it uses a ceramic device to create heat—instead of those metal coils found inside old-school dryers. It’s supposed to be more eco-friendly because it uses less energy and doesn’t give off as much radiation as traditional ones do.

Usually when you get a new styling tool for your hair, like a curling iron or hair dryer, you want to crank it up to the highest, hottest setting—because if it’s not set on high, it’s not going to work, right? Wrong! Newer heat tools, like flat irons, offer adjustable settings, making it possible for users to turn up the heat to 450 degrees.

Though we at Latina strive to demonstrate in every issue, in every bit of beauty coverage we do, that all hair textures are beautiful in their natural state, periodically a story will surface to point out that we as a collective American community have a long way to go in terms of understanding and accepting this truth. This week the New York Times ran an article called, “Black Hair, Still Tangled in Politics.” It focused on the first family, specifically First Lady Michelle Obama, and her eldest 11-year-old daughter Malia; more specifically, it focused on their hair.
