If you can build it, it can be connected to the internet it seems. From internet connected fridges to smart toothbrushes, the range of connected products is consistently growing. The latest? A hairbush that can give you insights on how you run the brush through your hair.
The hairbrush, produced by Withings, Kérastase and L’Oréal, was unveiled at the Consumer Technology Show in Las Vegas. The brush, called the Kérastase Hair Coach, won a CES innovation award for wearable products.
The Coach has been designed to “reinvent what a person’s relationship with their hair can look like”. L’Oréal says that “forceful” brushing increases the likelihood that hair will be damaged. A spokesperson said research has shown there is a need for the brush and it provides the same sort of service a professional hairdresser can provide.
