If you’ve spent much time online recently, then you’ll know that slugging has become a popular trend to lock in moisture and get a “glass skin” look. In case you’re unfamiliar with the technique, it’s an intensely moisturizing K-Beauty skincare process that originated in South Korea and involves lathering your face in Vaseline or a petrolatum-based product to help hydrate your skin overnight.

It has been a game-changing technique for my skin, so when hair slugging went hair-slugging%2F&referer_video_id=7066117462411988271&refer=embed&referer_url=https://www.intheknow.com/post/what-is-hair-slugging/” data-ylk=”slk:viral on TikTok” class=”link “viral on TikTok, I knew I had to try the trend too.

What is hair slugging?

The idea is simple: before bed, put a hair serum or oil on your hair, cover with a fuzzy sock to protect ends from friction and damage while you sleep, and you’ll hopefully wake up to the shiny hair of your dreams.

Because oiling and hydrating hair has been a part of my South Asian heritage for centuries, the concept didn’t feel foreign to me. However, I had never tried wrapping my hair in a fuzzy sock before, so that was a unique twist.

Instead of a hair oil, I used Dove’s Hair Therapy 7-in-1 Miracle Mist, which not only works as a serum to treat hair, but has also acts as a heat protectant and styling spray.

Review: Conair x Dafni Muse

Article content

What it is: A heat styling tool from a collaboration between two brands, Conair and Dafni.

Article content

The hair-styling brush is billed as being able to style “straight or naturally curly hair” that is short-to-medium length. The heated tool can be used to straighten strands, add curls or add waves. The heat styling tool features ceramic-coated bristles featuring Dafni’s patented technology.

With a fixed heat setting of 365 degrees F, the “optimal hairstyling temperature for effective styling while protecting your hair from unnecessary damage,” according the brand, the antistatic-bristle brush works to eliminate frizz while leaving hair “silky and smooth.”

What we say: After watching a few online tutorials, our tester set to work trying the Conair x Dafni Muse on her wavy, medium-length hair. Selecting small sections and completely dry hair were key aspects for best results.

A slow pass through the hair yielded a straightened, sleek look while a twist of the wrist added a nice soft curl. Curious about how the tool would perform on other hair types, she tried it on someone with short, very curly hair and was impressed with how it smoothed her strands and added a nice curl.

The Conair x Dafni Muse was also tested on someone with fine, super-straight hair and was found to produce sleek, soft waves without making strands feel “crispy” or overheated.

Overall, she found the tool provided good styling performance without too much heat. The lightweight brush was easy to use and it didn’t take long to figure out how best to use it on different hair types and lengths.
