I love a good gadget, especially if improves the process of life in some way. For someone who barely has time to brush her hair, I have a lot of hair tools (I love them) but unless I have the time (or even better, a live in hairdresser), I will never be someone who can wake up and do my hair from scratch every day.
Then there is this extremely luxurious top of the range hair dryer from T3. I have this thing for hairdryers – when I was a kid my mum and aunties used to share a travel hairdryer that smelt like burnt wood every time you used it. When I grew up and realised you could actually buy a normal hairdryer and go from wet to swish in less than 25 minutes, well, that was a revelation.
Here it is:
So now I have a few hair dryers, courtesy of beauty blogging, all mid range, all quite chunky heavy things but work pretty well. For me, unless one breaks I am not really on the market for a new one…it’s like a microwave. If it works, it’ll do until it breaks…don’t tell me people out there randomly go microwave shopping (or do they?!).
But then for the T3, you make an exception.
This hairdryer is high tech. There’s a lot of description which quite frankly, I don’t really understand myself, a few benefits are:
– 2 speeds and 3 heat settings
– Cool shot
– Tourmaline Concentrator (faster healthier drying
– Cord with wrap
– Ion Generator
– SoftAire feature (delivers a large even gone of heat)
– Ionic (breaks down water molecules for faster drying and smooths the cuticle)
The photos I took of this hair dryer I took are lost (waaaahh) but it basically comes in a big box along with a round brush, plug, attachement
The key thing about this hairdryer I noticed was that it is light for what it can do…compared to my Lee Stafford and Nicky Clarke tools it is about 30% lighter (very scientific I know, what I am saying is, it does not hurt my wrist which there others would if they were to take longer drying my hair).
Also – it does dry fast. Bearing in mind I blast and go (i don’t smooth it out with a brush because I haven’t the skills) it took me next to no time to get my hair dry (about 5 minutes if that) AND despite my skill-less blow drying, my hair looked smooth and less frizzy. A lot less frizzy. One of my complaints is how my hair blows up after drying with a lot of heat, and because this hairdryer works well at a cooler temperature too, my hair looks much much less poof-y.
Here’s the thing. This Hairdryer costs £195. It is very expensive for a hairdryer, but if you have the means, you are looking for something that dries extremely quickly and you want to look after the condition of your hair, then this is great.
