I’ll admit I’m not one of those people to spend a long time in the bathroom each morning fixing my hair. This is partly because I don’t have a long time in the morning and partly because I’m not a primper by nature. But, my hair is currently growing out from a shorter easy-to-fix style to a little bit of a longer style (it’s more of a weird in between stage right now, but we’re getting there!) and it definitely requires a little more time and care. Having quality hair appliances has made a world of difference in being able to quickly get my hair done each day and still have it look good. Flat Iron Experts is my go-to place for the very best hair products and appliances at the best prices.
I’ve had a little hair dryer forever and it’s been what I’d call good enough to get me by. Hey, it works and that’s really all I thought I needed. When Flat Iron Experts gave me the opportunity to check out the Velecta Paramount Professional Ceramic Ionic Hair Dryer I realized the difference a really high quality hair dryer can make. I totally love this thing!
First of all, it’s pretty small and compact. I don’t have a ton of space for hair stuff so I like not having to dedicate a shelf to my dryer. Some dryers can be huge! This one the perfect size so that it doesn’t seem like a tiny travel-size yet it’s not a great big thing that you need to make room to store. The dryer comes with three attachments: one barrel-shaped extension to make the nozzle a bit longer, and two narrower attachments that will concentrate the airflow which works well if you’re trying to dry just a section of hair at a time, maybe with a round brush, instead of blowing your whole head of hair dry at once.
One thing I really like about this is how fast it works. The Velecta dryer can blow air up to 80 miles per hour! Whoa! Don’t worry. You won’t blow away. But your hair will dry quickly. It does get pretty hot when you’re using it so be aware of that. This dryer has Tourmaline Ceramic Technology that emits far-infrared heat and negative ions that will preserve the natural moisture in your hair and decrease your drying time by 50%. That’s kinda techy hair talk to me, but what I’m hearing is that even with the power and heat of this dryer your hair won’t be damaged. So that’s great news since I often thing that drying my hair is going to cause it to split and fray and eventually look like straw. Good to know that this dryer works quickly without wrecking the health of your hair. In the time I’ve been using it I haven’t noticed my hair dry out at all. The dryer has three buttons on it: on and off, a low and high speed, and low and high heat. On the back there’s one more button for a cold shot of air.
Another feature I really like is the long, thick cord. You can see what I mean in the picture above. Now I don’t really walk all over the place while I’m drying my hair but this would be perfect for salon use. It is a professional dryer ya know! What I like for me, though, is that the cord doesn’t get all tangled up. Honestly I have no clue how this happens because I’m basically stationary while I’m drying my hair but somehow the cord on my old dryer is a knotted up mess. And I admit, I never take the time to un-knot it. Ain’t nobody got time for that! I just need to dry and go. So the more heavy duty cord on this Velecta dryer is working wonderfully for me. No kinks, no knots, no terrible mess. Perfect!
I also got this QT Performance Temptress Ceramic Ionic Thermal Brush to use with the hair dryer and the two together are a perfect pair. The bristles are static-free and grab the hair really well without pulling. I like the grippy handle too. If you attach one of those narrower nozzles to the dryer it will focus the hot hair just on the hair you’re rolling through the brush. That gives great volume! I’m admittedly not skilled in the doing-my-hair department but with the right tools it’s actually easy to do a nice job!
