One thing I’ve always intended to invest in but never got around to is a professional hairdryer. For years I’ve used hairdryers that are basic, no-frills and cost less than a tenner and this is mainly because, whenever I’ve set out with the intention of buying a decent hairdryer, I reach the Clinique counter first and the budget gets used there instead.
Nicky Clarke’s Desired Professional AC Hairdryer is quite a bit of kit. It’s just weighty enough so that you can control it without it either flying all over the place or causing your arm to ache. It’s got a 2000W motor that dries hair quickly and effectively so you don’t end up with that horrid, dry, frizzy feeling you get from spending too long drying your hair. It also has a seriously long lead which means you can comfortable move around and cover all areas of your hair without having to adjust your position.
The nozzle without attachment is very slender which allows airflow to move around (great for creating messy hair which is a look I usually go for; intentionally or otherwise…) but when you slot on the attachment, you’re left with a seriously concentrated airflow which makes smoothing hair a breeze. There are 2 speed settings, 3 heat settings and a cool shot, and one thing I really like about the speed settings is that the volume of the motor isn’t too different between the two. I know it’s a weird thing to focus on, but whenever I’m drying my hair at stupid o’clock in the morning, I’m always aware of the changes in the sound of the dryer when I change the speed so I’m happier to have a hairdryer that sounds the same no matter what speed it’s on. Look, I worry about these things, OK?
It’s all very well having a hairdryer with a sleek and sexy case and various bells and whistles, but the most important factor is whether it does its job properly. I can confidently report that it’s made hair drying a breeze; the ionic technology along with the various settings cuts out the frizz (ever since I’ve been wearing my hair straight I’ve become aware of how prone to frizz it actually is) and the various settings, concentrated airflow and pretty casing make this a great choice if you’re looking for a new hairdryer, especially as it’s reasonably priced at £34.99.
It can be purchased from the Nicky Clarke store here. There’s also currently a 10% deal on new order placements, so if you’re thinking of purchasing then now’s the time!
