Hair heating tools analysis

My first graphic what what. I wanted to collate the different kind of heating tools that are available to us on this healthy hair journey. These are the more popular ones, I believe there are others, feel free to let me know in the comments. Also let me know which ones your own and are your favourites.

Heating tools

In terms of availability in South Africa – the bonnet dryer is available in some outlets. Hooded dryers can be bought from Game, I’ve seen some at wholesalers that sell salon equipment, they usually go for ~R900. I don’t know of any place that sells heating caps off the shelf or for delivery within SA. Believe it or not, I saw steamers for sale at my favourite wholesaler for ~R1000, they only had about 2 stock. You can also go to salons to get your hair steamed as part of their service. I recently bought a clothes steamer to steam my hair, it has been working wonderfully – I might just be slightly.
