The first time I saw a $200 hair dryer in Sephora, I scoffed. “Who in the world would ever spend so much money on that? Just stick your head out the car window!” I used to say that about flat irons too, until I sizzled my hair with a cheap flat iron, now it’s CHI for me always. I used to color my hair at home until last year when it fried my hair and had to get a much-more-expensive Brazilian Blowout to fix the texture.
Now my delicate hair is in it’s natural state, it’s still a bit frizzy. I hadn’t taken the plunge into expensive hair dryers because, well, because my hair is fine and dries in 40min left to it’s own devices. Misikko.com sent me the HANA air professional hair dryer at $194 I wondered what the difference would be on my locks. Well, I have to say, that with my old $26 ConAir travel dryer, I absolutely have to use a flat iron, as my hair still frizzes, the HANA air, my hair is still fluffy, but it’s not as frizzy.
The HANA Hair dryer is really powerful. I have a queen size bedroom and was able to move my husband’s hair across the room. It says that it dries 60% faster, I wouldn’t be able to put a percentage on it Maybe if I wet my hair to the exact wetness and timed the drying. You’re going to have to take my word for it. Anyway, I thought the two heat settings were the right temperature, but the thing I like the most was the cool setting to finish off the blowout. It’s equally as powerful as the heat settings and with a press of the button, easy to maneuver.
All in all I’d say that this hairdryer converted me. The frizz is tamed down a bit even during the high humidity summer and it makes my mornings a bit more manageable. By manageable, it means hitting the snooze button a few more times. Woops.
