We are super excited to announce that we have joined forces with the oh-so-chic Tala Samman of My Fash Diary fame for a monthly hair tutorial feature! We have had many requests from our fans asking how to use our tools to achieve salon-worthy results. This feature will enable our audience to get the most out of their EIDEAL hair tools, recreate the hottest hair trends and master the basics such as a blow-dry with a few easy, at-home steps!
Our first tutorial was just in time for the December festive party season and featured two looks that take you from day-to-night!
After the first look was complete, Tala showed just how easy it is to take the look from day to night. The fashion and beauty blogger used her EIDEAL eCURLER to quickly add definition to her curls before gently separating them with her fingers for an ultra-glam nighttime look. The eCURLER is the ideal tool for creating those Hollywood-style curls as the barrel is coated with Nano-Silver and Nano-Titanium to ensure the hair is protected from damage and left with a healthy sheen!

Ionic technology seems to be the current buzzword in the world of hair, but what does that mean for you?
Ions are quite a complex notion, so a simple way to understand them is to imagine holding your hair next to a balloon. Suddenly your hair becomes full of static and sticks up. This is because the balloon, which is full of positively charged ions pulls away the negative ions and leaves your hair with a positive charge, which in turn causes the static and frizz. Positive ions are created as a result of friction so this same ‘balloon effect’ can occur in our day-to-day lives, as a result of air conditioning, contact with man-made fibers, air pollution, brushing or towel drying, which isn’t ideal for those of us who crave frizz-free locks!
This is where ionic technology comes in to its own. Ionic hairdryers emit negatively charged ions to act as a neutralizer for the positively charged ions in the hair. In doing so ionic technology eliminates static and frizz and tightens the cuticle layer to preserve the natural oils in the hair shaft, helping to maintain your hair’s natural strength and shine.
As a bonus, ionic technology also speeds up drying time. The negative ions help to break apart the water molecules in wet hair, lock in moisture and allow for a much faster drying time, without causing the heat damage previously associated with other hairdryers.
Try: EIDEAL’s new eionic hairdryer reduces dry time and infuses vital humidity to dry even the most fragile hair leaving it visibly soft and shiny. It is also one of the few hairdryers that features low EMF technology to ensure the safety of the user!
One of our favorite things to do at EIDEAL is meet our fans, so we were delighted when we got the chance to catch up with the winner of our joint competition with Ahlan! magazine & deliver her prizes in person!
The EIDEAL hamper featured a range of EIDEAL classics including one of our most popular hair tools, TwinFusion. It’s unique design is ideal for curling, straightening and waving the hair and it’s coated with white diamonds so there’s no damage to the hair! Perfect for those girls who can’t decide which hairstyle they like best! We also added one of our SilenForce hairdryers as it’s a favorite among our salons and customers. SilenForce uses ionic technology to eliminate frizz and reduce drying time so it’s great for girls on the go. It is also one of the only hairdryers available that features Low EMF technology, which means that the user is protected from the harmful effects associated with many hairdryers! Phew!
Lauren was chosen from the thousands of entrants to win the EIDEAL hair treats, so we popped into her office in Jebel Ali to congratulate & meet her in person. Look at that smile! We think she’s pleased!
With the weather in Dubai suddenly taking a turn from hot to hotter your hair can often suffer. At EIDEAL we feel that hair doesn’t have to be tired, limp, or frizzy, just because the temperatures are soaring!
Our team of hair experts have come up with their favorite drying tips to keep your hair vibrant and bouncy all day:
It may sound obvious, but tangled hair is a no-no! Tangles encourage the hair to break away and stop growth. Smooth, tangle-free hair is the cornerstone of any good blow-dry! Always brush through thoroughly using a comb or paddle brush before you dry. It is important to use a good quality product for this as cheap versions often break or skim over the hair. Try the EIDEAL Paddle Brush for tangle-free tresses!
This is key – the way you direct your hair dryer can make or break your style. If the nozzle points upwards or comes into contact with the hair it will fry the cuticle and cause damage to your hair – and nobody wants dry and damaged hair! The correct way to blow-dry is to direct the dryer down the hair shaft and to keep a good distance between the nozzle and your mane.
It is a common misconception that simply leaving your hair to dry in the air is the healthiest and most natural way to treat your hair. In actual fact, this is not the case!
A recent study by scientists in Korea, discovered that using the correct blow-drying technique (we discussed above!) is actually better for the health of your hair. Here’s why:
Every strand is made up of a sensitive inner layer and a protective outer layer (the cuticle). The two layers are held together by delicate proteins. “When the cuticle layer is perfectly intact, then hair is very shiny and doesn’t tend to break,” says Jeff Donovan, MD, Certified Hair Restoration Physician.
Hairstyles are ever-changing and with the Spring/Summer season knocking on our door, we find interesting hairstyles that were highlighted in all the runway shows of the London Fashion Week.
The top 3 looks for spring/summer are by far the classic ponytail, which continues to gain popularity, the slicked back hairstyle, which is perfect for glamorous dinners, and of course the 1920s tight waves which are so fabulous and unique! But if you’re not a fan of the tight waves, a bed-head hairstyle is still fashionable.
As for the haircuts, we saw many fringe bangs. They are just so adorable! Another popular haircut is the bob, and the very short one.
So, which hairstyle do you prefer to rock this spring?
