The semester may be drawing to a close, but it’s never too early to start planning your living arrangements for next year. Finding personal space in a crowded dorm can prove to be quite a challenge, especially when it comes to space for your favorite beauty tools. Yes, we swear by our special mega-sized hairdryers and flatirons, but space is something we 20-somethings can’t seem to get enough of.
Merging high quality salon products with our constant desire for more room, Cricket Tools has created a travel-sized products matching all of our needs. They sent me some exclusive items for review, so get the full scoop on my thoughts below.
Tired of being at war with your hair comb? You know the one that’s seen better days and seems to be tangling your hair instead of detangling it? Cricket’s Ultra Smooth Comb Collection was a god-send to extremely damaged, easy tangled hair. Fusing together a healthy blend of Keratin Proteins, Argan and Olive Oils, this special brush helps fight frizz while gliding through hair, easily avoiding painful tangles. Normally, I’m a bristle brush kind of girl but this comb eased my hair woes as it helped smooth out even the worst of my tangles. Available for $6.49, this travel-friendly product is long enough as a ruler, making it totally dorm room approved.
Friction Free Travel Dryer
Hauling a blow-dryer across the dorm hall to blow dry your hair can be annoying — especially when you have that huge bottle of hairspray tucked under your arm. Luckily for us, Cricket has a solution for this beauty hauling problem. Introducing the Friction Free Travel Dryer, promising just as much shine as it’s easy to store appeal. Equipped with a folding handle making it great for compact storage, this two heat setting blow dryer manages to be a salon quality product with its ionic tourmaline technology. With ionic technology, the friction-free dryer dries my hair faster compared to my big clunky dryer at home. I also love the versatility of this product, as it suits my beauty needs as well as being small enough to fit inside my purse. For just $36.99, it’s easy to say that small is the new big.
The quest for the perfect straightener seems costly and endless. Within each purchase, we feel we get an inch closer to finding the “right one,” but you speak too soon and suddenly your favorite straightener breaks right before you even got it. If too big, too breakable straighteners got you seeing red, go friction-free with Cricket’s Friction Free Mini Flat Iron. Heating up to approximately 392 degrees, this palm-sized straightener is less than six inches long. One of my favorite features of the product has to be the rubber grip, as it helps even the most burn-prone users (like myself) avoid irritating burns. Always creating a smooth finish, the straightener retails for $39.99.
Good mini-tools are hard to come by, especially since smaller size usually comes with easier damage. With Cricket Tools, however, size never sacrifices quality. With easy-to-use salon quality products, your beauty-loving, space-craving woes are solved for at least another semester.
