I need a new hairdryer. Doesn't need to have any fancy attachments - would like one that is fairly strong and quick to dry thick hair. Maybe not too bulky/loud? Anyone got one they love?

I just got this one after my trusty old hairdrier broke after 10 years.

It's amazing, I have long thick hair which used to take an hour to dry, this has cut the time in half. Also makes my hair really soft and shiney with no frizz.

It is expensive but it's worth it to me just on the time it saves.

I bought this recently

I like it - very thick naturally very curly hair which I dry to waviness/fairly straight with a big round brush.

Good value imo.

Shall I start the worshipping of the Parlux ?
Not cheap and don't know about longevity as only had it 5 months.

I have masses of hair and its reduced my drying time vastly.
My hairdresser commented on how less dry and out of condition my hair is. My hair rarely has a bad day whereas before everyday I looked like a scarecrow.

The hairdryers. I have had one for about 5 years and it is amazing.

Thanks everyone! I had seen the ghd air, but the Parlux ones look good and more eco friendly.... Might try one!

Get a professional hair dryer from your hairdressers, they normally cost about £100 but worth every penny if you have a lot of hair.

Thank you! Have gone for the Parlux Eco one, can't wait for it to arrive. Thanks to everyone for taking the time to make suggestions.

Looking forward to hearing your verdict!

Love it! The packaging was all retro too which I loved. It is very slightly heavier than I thought it might be, but very powerful and dries nicely. I would definitely recommend it so far...! Thanks again.
