Parlux - Emperor's new clothes or the best thing in the whole wide world?
I bought one and I don't like it! It makesmy hair really knotty and I still have to use straighteners. In fact I'm going to try and sell it on eBay as its too long now to send it back, even though I've only used it about 4 times
Had mine 3 years. Use it every day. It cuts 10 minutes of the time I spend getting ready in the morning as it does dry more quickly than any other I have had. I have long straight fine hair (but lots of it). Doesn't need straightening after. I like it, and do recommend it,
I find the lower setting too cool and the higher setting too hot but because I am impatient I use the higher one and have noticed the ends of my hair are drier. Agree it can knot long hair. Do love the retro look and colours though and it does give a nice shine
I bought one about three years ago after reading the rave reviews on here. I haven't been disappointed with it at all. At the end of the day, it is just a hair dryer, but it does appear to do the job faster/more efficiently. Valiumredhead will be along shortly to extol its virtues too! My only issue it that the med strength setting, in terms do waft, is dodgy, so it's gale force or off for me! I shall be passing it to my brother on Boxing Day for him to work his gadget magic.
It's a very powerful hairdryer , but it won't do anything to give you silky hair unless you you use proper drying techniques, no hair dryer will.. I have one and I'm happy with it but I'm too lazy to do what hairdressers do!
I have a professional hairdryer exactly almost like the parlux. Bought it a hundred years ago. I love it, couldn't go back to an ordinary hairdryer now, drying time is so quick (I am rather impatient). Can't say it makes my hair glossy but it is fantastically efficient at its job and still going strong about 15 years later.
I have a Parlux 385 Power Light dryer. Bought 6 months ago. Fantastic for my fine, frizzy hair . So easy to quickly blow dry and style my hair yet the condition has not suffered . Highly recommend it !
