If you’re rubbish at blow drying your hair, you’re rubbish. That’s my conclusion. How anyone manages to use a round brush and a hairdryer on their back of their own head I will never understand.
If you are also pants at blow drying your hair – or you just don’t have time – you SO need a blow dry styler. My mum has been a convert of these kind of hair tools for years (she uses a ‘National’ branded one, my Chinese sisters will know what I’m talking about – which smells of burning when she uses it. But I digress).
My most recent hot air styler, after I realised my John Frieda one was a touch weak, is this nifty Nicky Clarke Frizz Control Ionic Blow Dry Styler.
This hair tool comes with 4 heads, 2 speed settings and a cool setting, and a frizz control ‘ionic’ button (I don’t know what this does but I always push it).
You have the hot brush type attachment (my most used), the black brush (which I never use), a straightener type attachment, and a blow dry head, which means if you take this away, you don’t have to take an additional hair dyer.
I like this hair tool very much for a few reasons;
– The hot brush attachment is nicely grippy which you need if you want to smooth out your hair.
– It’s powerful, especially on setting 2 and it also gets quite hot, actually a bit too hot for me on this setting BUT the option is there if you need to dry quickly.
– 4 attachements is useful and at least you have the choice.
– The cool shot function is good too, I use this quite a lot not just to set my hair
Most importantly, it’s just EASY, so much easier than trying to use a hair dryer and a hot brush.
If I have time I use a hairdryer beforehand, and a curling wand after this step (more about this later) but if I don’t have time, this is the only hair tool I will bother to use – it’s essential for smoothing out my hair.
This is on sale for £22.99 at Argos.
