Do You Really Need To Spend $200 On A Hairdryer?
I’ll start by saying that this is not the most economical product I'll ever write about, but for those who are ready to step up their hair game, this one is for you!
There are a lot of great products at the supermarket that are pretty much as good as the prestige offerings—sunscreen, mascara, and lipsticks, to name a few...but a blow-dryer simply isn’t one of them. Why? A high quality dryer has multiple benefits that cheaper models can’t compete with, like dry time, weight, power, durability, and, most importantly, how it makes your hair look. None more than my favourite: The Parlux 385 Power Light. (RRP $220, on special at $170)
The Parlux 385 Power Light dries hair in half the time of a bargain or travel dryer, delivers a smoother finish (even if you rough dry), is small and lightweight, and isn’t as loud as many of its competitors. But the best part is the even airflow, powerful long lasting motor, and different heat settings, which means you get less damage, like split ends and breakage. And if you don't believe me, you're going to believe the awards it's gathered since it's launch, including InStyle's 2014 Best Beauty Buy.
My chemically-processed blonde hair is proof that you don’t have to give up the daily ritual of blow-drying your locks to keep your hair healthy, just make sure you choose a model that’s equal parts gentle and effective!
