Thanks ggirl, are you having bad hair days too? grin

Boots ionic hairdryer.

Which is not an ironic hairdryer, not that I misread the box in the shop, you understand. blush

The science is probably hooey, but it left my hair slightly less mad and frizzy than its Babyliss predecessor.

Toni & Guy one is fab if you have thick long hair

lulalullabye Tue 15-Apr-08 10:29:52

Phillips/ Treseme hairdryer is fab, about 25 quid and worth every penny. i have curly and very thick hair and it dries in no time.

I'm using this one [[ nal&qid=1208251489&sr=1-14]
which has very slim concentrator nozzle and long cable (my top 2 requirements for a hairdryer.) Bouggt mine from Boots, but can't find a link to it there. I use mine almost every day and usually get through one a year and I'm quite happy with this one and would even buy it again. I can spend hours shopping for a new one, mostly becuase the nozzles' aren't usually slim enough.

revlon or remington big shot
2000W and a long cord

Boots one makes me look like Jo Brands mum.

Old one made me look like Jo Brand.

Subtle I know. But important. grin

Still no new purchase?
What kind of hair have you got Frumpy? If shoulder length or above I promise you the Babyliss is brilliant, it gives you the shiny salon finish, I've even used it on the children!

frumpygrumpyhasnofaceon Sat 19-Apr-08 20:29:21

I'm still with travel hairdryer grin

I still have no friends grin

I went shopping today but went late and Boots was shut so I may do an internet purchase. Is it really that good? I have shoulder length, untidy and unloved as hell, mother of 3 hair grin

Hi Frumpy smile
I had resisted buying it before as it looked like a sales gimmick but it really has made a difference. Iv'e got quite thick hair and it's starting to go a bit wiry and fuzzy in parts (yes like pubic hair!) and I was starting to look slightly feral, so desperate measures were needed. I think it must be the ceramic thing doing something as it leaves it very smooth, you don't have to have it poker straight, I can sort of style it with a slight cheeky flick! It lasts for about 3 days so I'm very happy with the results.
I'm feeding dc3 so hopes this makes sense.

barking Sat 19-Apr-08 20:54:28

dc3 just fallen asleep so I can type unencumbered! also worth saying that it looks quite small in the box and I worried it wasn't going to be powerful enough to dry and style hair but it dries very quick (has 3 heat settings I think and a nob at the top which I haven't worked out what it does yet as the instructions have disappeared as most things do when they come to our house!

barking Sat 19-Apr-08 20:56:48

Oh shock horror no full stops. But having 3 children one has to type and talk really fast these days grin

frumpygrumpyhasnofaceon Sun 20-Apr-08 14:24:04

yes, never a full stop with 3 grin I will let you know..........atm I'm contemplating the Britney shave pmsl!

Nicky Clarke one from TKMaxx. Excellent. Was £14.

barabra16 Thu 09-Feb-17 17:20:02

Get a Karmin hair dryer, I have been using it and works really well for my hair =)

CateGory8 Thu 09-Feb-17 18:00:52

Parlux 385 is the best hairdryer I've ever had. I have really course hair and this dryer makes my hair lovely and smooth.

tickingthebox Thu 09-Feb-17 18:04:41

I'm with the Parlux, anyone else hasn't tried one - unbelievable difference to my hair - No frizz whatsoever.

I was dubious at the £100 price tag, but will never go back! It is incredible

THIS IS A 2008 ZOMBIE hmm, I suspect the OP has a dryer now
