Several months ago, the beauty experts at Misikko, sent over a Hanaair Professional Hair Dryer, one of the top selling products from their Hana Salon. The people at Misikko sell all things beauty, from hair dryers to curling irons, and I've been lucky to test (and love) several of their products. I've had my eye on a fancypants hair dryer for a while, but couldn't quite fit the cost into my "why in the world did I ever decide to get a Ph.D" budget. So I considered it quite serendipitous when they contacted me to review their premiere hair dryer.
I filmed an upboxing video several months ago when I first received the product (see that video here), but rather than review it right away, I decided to use it for a while before I gave it a full review. Three months have passed, and my final verdict is in. It is simply amazing. No joke. Amazing. And rather than write a rambling review about it, (cause yall know I can ramble), I decided to list what I love most.
1. It signicantly reduces drying time. You probably expected this one, and in reality, it's one of the things I love most about the dryer. I have insanely thick hair, and if I want to go from shower to completely dry hair, I usually spend about 45 minutes with a hair dryer. But not now. My drying time has been cut in half, which gives me more time for morning snoozing. A win win for me.
2. The hair dryer doesn't get that hot. I've tried several fancypants hair dryers before, and everytime, I felt the need to keep a fire extinguisher neaby. The air and the hair dryer itself would get so hot, I could literally feel my hair burning. But not the Hanaair. The hot setting in totally manageable, which makes for more pleasant primp sessions and much healthier hair!
3. The settings are simple. Easy to read switches give me options without feeling overwhelmed. 2 fan speeds, 3 heat settings, and a cold shot. Sweet and simple, just how I like it.
4. My hair stays straighter for longer between washes. It's no secret, I've shared before that I only wash my hair twice a week (with the help of dry shampoo.) It used to be that after I slept on my "day 1 hair," I would wake up with a frizzy mess. But not anymore. It's as if the hair dryer completely dries my hair, rather than just drying the outer layers. It's amazing.
Those things said, I think Matt reviewed the hair dryer best when he said, "You don't know how awesome it is until you use it and then go back to your old dryer." You see, Matt didn't really see the point in a fancy hair dryer, so he kind of thought I will silly for getting all excited. So when I packed the hair dryer with me to take on internship, he quickly noted the difference. And I have to agree; the difference is impressive.
So if you're in the market for a new hair dryer, wanting something to help cut down your morning dry time, or looking for a way to boost the health of your hair, I'd definitely look into the Hanaair Hair Dryer. The difference is definitely noticable! PS: the dryer is super on sale right now, so if you're thinking about buying it, now is an awesome time to scoop it up!
