The time has come for me to upgrade my handheld dryer…. 😉
You may not believe me, but like seriously, I’m queen of cheap. So cheap in fact, my dh (dh = dear husband as commonly used on hair forums) just shakes his head at my ability to repair a broken item over and over for the sake of saving money.
Don’t believe me? Well, proof is in the pudding. Check out my broke down, ghetto fab handheld hair dryer — do take note of the broken teeth and the electrical tape holding it together. 😆
I’ve had this handheld dryer for years and it shows. If I had to guess, I’d say it’s somewhere around 8 years old. I used the heck out of it when I first got it. That was back when I was blow drying my hair with heat for a follow-up flat iron. One of the first things I learned when starting my healthy hair journey is direct heat is bad! It robs the hair of hydration and can be very damaging, thus I stopped using my handheld dryer immediately.
The dryer has pretty much sat untouched for years. Within recent months, however, I’ve had the desire to use it to blow dry my roots on the cool setting. However, the missing teeth and the need to hold down the cool shot button has become quite the nuisance.
That brings me to the title of this post….. I’m on a quest for the perfect handheld dryer.
My requirements are really, really basic. I want a handheld dryer with a comb attachment that resembles an actual comb. I also want an actual cool temperature setting. I’m over the cool shot button as that’s just way too much going when I’m blow drying my hair.
After going store to store and coming up short, I took to the internet to complete my search. I finally came across a good potential – Andis 80345 Styler Hair Dryer.
I read up on the reviews and as with anything, some love it, some hate it. Seeing how I’m only interested in the cool temperature setting, I think it will be a decent investment. I will be hitting pay now on this little gadget (unless I find something better). I’ll be sure to report back on the likes and dislikes once received.
I’d love to hear the deets of which handheld dryer you’re using!
