One of my least favorite tasks as a girl with long hair is blow drying it. I have fine hair, but I have a LOT of it, so it takes a pretty long time to dry it and I’m not really one to put much effort into it. I’ve always owned fairly cheap blow dryers (my most recent one was a $20 Conair), and although they haven’t given me any trouble, my hair is always a big afro mess when the blow dryer is done with it. (remember this? That was relatively tame compared to the usual craziness). Yes, it’s totally my fault because I just flip my hair around and point the dryer in whatever direction I please, and haven’t ever even thought about using a round brush to assist me, etc, etc. And I kind of thought all blow dryers would do that with the very small amount of effort I put into it.
Then Jose Eber contacted me and asked me to try out their Infrared Blow Dryer. Infrared — doesn’t that sound fancy?? Although I knew it would be a nicer blow dryer than anything I’d ever used, I honestly had pretty low expectations — I still expected to end up with a tangly mess at the end of my blow out, just like always.
Apparently this thing is MAGIC, because even though I did the exact same thing as I’ve always done, my hair was unbelievably smooth and flat (in a good way), and I was pretty much ready to walk out the door in five minutes, not even having to use a straightener. How? I do not know. But I love it. According to the website, the blow dryer actually cleanses and prepares your hair for a return to shine and manageability. Seriously, after one use, I could totally tell. My hair honestly felt and looked healthier!
The blow-dryer has five different settings — high and low air flow, and then cold, warm, and hot temperature. That cold setting (without having to hold down a “cold” button for 5 minutes straight) is my best friend ever in the summer. No melting into a puddle of sweat while getting ready for me!
My only complaint about the blow-dyer (and it pains me to say this because this thing is so awesome in every other way), is that the temperature and air speed buttons are on the front of the handle, right where my hand wraps around. Since the buttons are easy to push and fairly sensitive, I end up pushing them over and over while blow drying, which is a bit annoying. If they were less sensitive buttons, or in a different place on the blow dryer, it would be the perfect blow dyer.
So if you’re like me and are a totally lazy blow dryer, you need this. It has cut my drying time nearly in half, and my hair looks a bazillion times better post drying than ever before. I can be out of the shower with soaking wet hair to completely ready in almost no time at all. AMAZING.
