And i need a new one

It short circuited lots of sparks smoke and drama

Any recommendations?

I used to have a professional one and am now seeing cheap hair dryers as a false economy.

Thanks

My hair is really thick and the 3200 i smote than enough power.

I've quite fine hair so I thought the 3200 would be ample reading the reviews as it would give me time to try and style it

Can't wait to use it

Am sad sad person blush

Handy tip - keep it moving, it is REALLY powerful and will fry your hair if you leave it one place for too long. You need to do the hairdresser's trick of blow drying on hot and then giving it a shot of cool.

Thanks Valium - great advice

Will have to remember that when I use it on ds hair too!

The parlux is a good job

But ds says its too warm!

I bought dd the GHD for Christmas , glad to hear it is good for the mug price I paid.

I had a hairdryer burst into smoke once. Afterwards I used my popcorn-making machine to dry my hair until getting a new hairdryer for Christmas.
