I was desperate for a parlux but bought a nicky Clarke Mayfair one because it was cheaper. It's brilliant really brilliant.

ggirl, that is the one I have, its is brilliant. Definitely encourage you to get it if you have a lot of hair, much faster drying time.

I have an ancient Parlux. Must be 8 or 9 years old now and still going strong. Well worth the money.

ggirl Sun 11-Dec-11 20:37:30

thanks girls
don't have thick hair but do have a loads of fine hair

I am desperate for one! <shallow>Are the nozzles very concentrated? I like to be able to direct the flow of air in one place.

ggirl Tue 13-Dec-11 19:09:27

I reallly cannot decide whether to get one or not.

Do they cut out when they get too hot? I really hate hairdryers that do that (yes, I know why they do but I'll decide when it's too hot)

IfYouSeeKaySanta Tue 13-Dec-11 19:39:24

Nozzles are very concentrated. I actually don't like it as I like to blast dry quickly and the nozzle is too directional for me so I just remove it.

And mine has never, ever cut out on me. They're designed for heavy use in professional salons and can stand up to use at high temperature for prolonged periods.

Ah sounds like it'll be good for me then, thanks smile

I have just had my hair cut and was asking about them. Hairdresser said they last for years - she'd had hers for 8! I am getting the one up from the one you want gg but that's because I have REALLY thick hair. Am looking now for the cheapest deal.

ggirl Thu 15-Dec-11 13:16:15

valium-have you found a cheap deal??

valiumredhead Thu 15-Dec-11 13:21:11

Had a quick look but they are all similar prices tbh.

TracyK Thu 15-Dec-11 13:23:32

I don't like a hairdryer that is too hot - would this be too hot for me? I dry my hair everyday and is quite fine and bleached.
Is this one of the ion type ones?

valiumredhead Thu 15-Dec-11 13:24:28

Some of them are ION ones and the heat is very controllable, there's a good selection.

ggirl Thu 15-Dec-11 13:36:58

thanks valium
tracy I don't think they get too hot
they're quite powerful though..I think

IfYouSeeKaySanta Thu 15-Dec-11 13:50:00

There are 2 heat and speed settings on mine. The lower heat setting is much too cool for my liking (I have thick hair and lots of it!) but would probably suit you perfectly, TracyK.

mrsravelstein Thu 15-Dec-11 13:52:15

i've got that one, it's very good, hairdresser rec'd it to me, i have long very very thick hair and that one doesn't overheat on me.

valiumredhead Thu 15-Dec-11 14:03:40

I need one with a cool shot button or cold setting to 'set' my style.

ggirl Thu 15-Dec-11 14:08:01

so do I valium
I thought they all had a cool button

valiumredhead Thu 15-Dec-11 14:38:48

Do they? Good! Which sites have you been looking at? Some are more detailed than others I am finding and so I have only seen the lime green eco one which has a cool shot.

ggirl Thu 15-Dec-11 15:15:00

i don't know for sure assuming grin
have only looked on one site so far

ggirl Mon 19-Dec-11 19:31:26

right have decided on this one
better be good

valiumredhead Fri 23-Dec-11 11:46:36

I have some unexpected Xmas money - I am going to get one for sure! grin

Let me know how you get on with your gg

ggirl Fri 23-Dec-11 12:39:49

hope I'm not disappointed
