Makes my hair feel great, but...
I generally like Panasonic products, and this one is no exception.
A couple of things you should know:
The hair dryer leaves my hair feeling much better than my old conair hair dryer. I'm not sure if this is because the of the ionizer (see the product description), or because the hair dryer doesn't get nearly as hot as my old dryer. Either way, it takes a little bit longer, but my hair is in much better shape.
Also, my old dryer had a cord which would retract into the dryer when I wasn't using it. The Panasonic doesn't have that feature, and I miss it....more infoBEST blow dryer out there!
I had a Braun blowdryer with a volumizer attachment that I was dearly in love with - but the poor thing was 10 years old, and almost on its last legs.
Now why would anyone want a volumizer? Well, it's perfect if you don't like your hair plastered flat on your head like you just got a lube job. A few seconds with a volumizer "lifts" your hair up a bit by the roots and gives it some body and style without using a curling iron or rollers.
Most women just looks better with some height - heroin chic just isn't for everyone. :)
It's really hard to find a blow dryer with a volumizer attachment since the "high hair" look died. This Panasonic one was the only one I could find, so I took a chance for $20.
I was in AWE! The volumizer attachment is 3 times bigger than the Braun one I had. It takes give seconds, putting it on the crown of your head, and your hair has instant lift! Fast and quick!
But the thing I hadn't counted on was this ion gizmo. My hair looked like I had just had a deep conditioning treatment! The texture of my hair is thick, but wavy and a bit coarse when blow dried too much. My hair was like SILK! What incredible shine and texture!
The dryer has several settings that aren't just "low" and "fry your tresses." The syling setting is great for drying, and the finishing setting just dumps ions onto your hair, making it look like you just had it styled in a Fifth Avenue salon!
There's also a cool shot button that helps "set" curls or waves where you want them to be.
If you aren't Kate Moss and like your hair with some body to it and a blinding, silky texture, I highly recommmend this blow dryer! (P.S. I bought mine from Amazon, and it came with a full-sized sample of Pantene conditioner. Just another reason to give this dryer a try - it's one of the few things that actually does MORE than you expect!)...more info
