When I received an email inviting me to trial this I was super excited, thank you so much BR for all the incredible trial opportunities and the work you put into this site! I was even more excited when I saw the package on my doorstep, and quickly opened it to find the beautiful box that this hair dryer comes in. It is black and rose gold, and absolutely beautiful! In the box, you get a storage bag, two concentrator attachments and a diffuser. It claims to use '3D Airflow' and 'Smooth Conditioning Technology' to help style, reduce frizz and create a smooth finish - which is definitely something I'm into! This hair dryer retails for $299.99, which is rather steep for a hair dryer, however I think it could be worth it depending on your hair type and needs.
This hairdryer looks like something out of a space movie - it just looks so futuristic! It's triangular, with a hole through the middle, and mesh at the back where I believe air is sucked in to blow dry with. This mesh means that there is no way for your hair to get sucked into the back, which has happened to me multiple times in the past and is always a huge pain. The hairdryer has good weight to it, but it is balanced well so is easy to manoeuvre while in use. The attachments included in the box easily pop onto the hollow head of the hairdryer. It also has a very long cord (3 metres if I remember correctly) with a loop to hang the hairdryer if needed. It has 3 heat settings, a ‘cool shot’ button, and 2 speed settings. I found that there wasn’t much of a difference between the lowest heat setting and the cool shot setting.
When I used this hair dryer I was amazed at the speed it dried my hair, it only took around 10 minutes compared to around 30-45 minutes that my old hairdryer took - keep in mind, I have very thick, frizzy curly hair! Using the diffuser attachment took longer, but gave me even better results - my curls looked smooth, and they weren’t frizzy, plus my hair was nice and soft with lots of volume! I used it by ‘cupping’ my hair in the attachment and holding for a while, repeating every minute. I think the ‘Smooth Conditioning Technology’ actually works, which I was very impressed with. With the other attachments, my hair took a bit less time to dry, but my hair wasn’t as curly, instead it was more wavy-straight, which is good as I am able to get 2 different styles without the use of a hair straightener at all.
Overall, I love the experience I have when I use this hair dryer - it looks good and performs great! It has lots of features that make it just that little bit better, such as the included attachments and storage bag, and many settings to choose from. It gave me amazing results, even though I have thick, curly, frizzy hair. The price tag is steep though (and that is why I have rated it slightly less than 5 kisses), so that is something to consider if you’re thinking about buying this hair dryer - it is sure a good one though!
