The right hair dryer can mean the difference between smooth, sleek locks and dried, damaged tresses. The more often you use a hair dryer, the more the quality of your styling tool matters. The logic follows – the better the dryer, the healthier your hair. A quality hair dryer such as those made by T3 reduces the amount of heat your hair is exposed to and saves you from constantly buying expensive conditioning treatments.
Here are some essential features to look for in a quality hair dryer from T3 or any other high-end brand:
Ionic technology. Your hair carries a natural positive charge; ions have a negative charge. When you use a hair dryer with ionic technology, the charge in your hair becomes neutral. The result is smooth hair that has less frizz.Read More »

News and health reports constantly tell us to stay out of the sun while also emphasizing that catching a few rays is healthy for you because it gives you a boost of Vitamin D. What if there were a way to harness the positive qualities of sunlight and do away with the rest? NASA scientists did just that when they developed a light therapy system to help promote the healing of astronauts’ skin in zero-gravity conditions. However, you don’t need to be in outer space to take advantage of this newer technology, thanks to products such as the Baby Quasar.
Light therapy involves exposing the skin a specific spectrum of light. Some common light spectrums include UVA and UVB. Nail tech at salons use UV lights to cure acrylic and gel manicures, while horticulturalists use special lighting in greenhouses to help plants grow. Those who suffer from SAD (seasonal affective disorder) often use special lighting in their homes to help stave off feelings of depression. With repeated use, specific spectrums of light can also help heal your skin and improve its condition without the need to use harsh chemicals, injections or abrasives.Read More »

The word "oil" when it comes to our skin used to be something that was dreaded and despised. Now, we can't get enough of the stuff with facial and body oils having a huge resurgence amongst the beauty industry tastemakers. We used to think that putting oil on top of an already oily complexion or any complexion in fact, was the worst possible thing you could do, but now studies are finding that oil based products are just as effective as traditional cream based moisturizers and serums. With chic brands such as Rodin Olio Lusso's Luxury Facial Oil being featured in the New York Times and numerous fashion publications, we're realizing that skin needs some healthy plant based oils to remain balanced. NBC Today recently featured it's favorite nourishing oils for hair, face and body and two of our products were amongst the ones chosen. If you don't already have a facial oil in your skincare reptoire you might be foregoing the missing link to maintaining beautiful and healthy skin.

This luxury dry oil is infused with tiny mother of pearl particles and six essentail oils that leave your skin with a luminous non-greasy glow and feel.
Kai Body Glow was selected for fragrance because it smells like a tropical vacation in Hawaii. This body mist was also selected as one of Oprah's "Favorite Things" and leaves skin supple and soft along with a subtle glow.
