Hair dryers! Which one to buy? There are the luxury dryers like the FHI’s, CHI’s, T3’s pro and & featherweight dryers which I would love to own. Why? Because of the follow features that of course are so much healthier for our hair like:
(example: T3 PRO. Dryerfor $119)
T3 PRO. Dryer will deliver shiny, smooth, frizz-free locks with a twice as fast drying time. Don’t let the pretty pink package fool you—this dryer is powered by T3’s patented tourmaline technology. Tourmaline is a semi-precious gem that gives off ionic energy—naturally—when heated. No other brand has T3’s pioneering process for incorporating tourmaline into their products. T3 doesn’t just spray or coat the dryer with tourmaline—it is infused so it doesn’t wear off, so you can enjoy its long-lasting, powerful benefits.
What else you need to know:
The tourmaline-infused concentrator and diffuser attachment works dynamically with the dryer for maximum ionic benefits that create soft, tousled waves and gorgeously curly styles, without the frizz! Weight of the dryer is 22 oz. Two year warranty included.
This is great and wonderful, but who has the money to shell out from $119 to $200 & up for a hair dryer in these economic times? If I did I would totally get it! But you all know me I would rather splurge on makeup!! Anyway, I am sure that there are other healthy alternatives for our hair that has the similar technology for less right? That is why I did some research and found a few dryers that has similar technologies, but for a lot less! After my research I ended up at Sally’s. Another great source for styling tools for hair and other great beauty finds. What I found and decided to purchase was the Belson Ionic Tourmaline Turbo Dryer for $34.99. Okay now what intrigued me the most was the similarity in technology.
What they say about this hair dryer:
The Belson Ionic Tourmaline Turbo Hairdyer emits millions of negative ions, allowing the hair to be silky smooth and frizz free while reducing drying time.
* 1875 Watts of power
* Powerful yet lightweight
* Leaves hair soft, shiny and smooth
* Doesn’t damage hair like other hair dryers
* Eliminates the frizzy “blow-dried” look
* Negative ions add moisture and sheen
* Two speed settings
* Six heat settings
* Cool shot button
* Ionized concentrator
* Non-slip rubberized inserts
* Hinged air-intake grille
* Air concentrator
* Styling pik
* 9-ft. cord with hanging ring
Create healthy, shiny, beautiful hair with new advanced technology! An amazing professional Tourmaline + Ionic Ceramic 1875 watt hair dryer that revitalizes your hair’s natural moisture balance. Tourmaline crystals are crushed into the dryer’s components and emit an overload of negative ions and far-infrared heat. While the negative ions close the cuticle layer and seal in moisture, infrared heat penetrates deep into the hair shaft to heat gently and dry your hair from within. Hair is left silky, frizz free, and healthy while drying is reduced.
So after reading that and then seeing the price for this one. I decided to purchase it and I am glad I did. My reasons are:
- The hair dryer did cut the drying time down in half.
- My hair did not smell like it was burning while drying. Which in the long run will mean less or no breakage on my relaxed hair.
- The frizziness was at minimum compared to my Conair Dryer from target.
- The dryer itself was very light weight like the expensive t3 pro.
So, overall I am loving my new dryer that I have now had for over a month and would totaly reccommend it if you are on a budget and want a dryer that is healthier for your hair, but not too pricey! The only down side is that it does not hae the warranty like the T3, but for the price? I am okay with that.
