Which hair dryer should I get?

New Elchim or Solano hair dryer again?

My Solano dryer is slowly dying and I need to get a new hair dryer. I had a quick look online to check out the options but there is so much choice that it is just blowing my mind.

I do not want to rush into buying another one, I want to take my time and make a good decision but I’m not sure how much longer I can cope with this dryer. After looking at the new Solano Hair Dryers for so long, part of me thinks I should just get another Super Solano Hair Dryer because it has been good to me and lasted a few years but I am so ready for a change.

I have no idea what the best dryers on the market are? I need some coffee.

When I should have been outside enjoying the sunshine outside topping up my tan I stayed inside and researched blow dryers. This girl knows how to have a good time! So, I think I have whittled it down to two choices. Firstly I have my eye on the Babyliss Pro BABFV1. It is not cheap but this babyliss blow dryer looks amazing and has some great features and a really long cord which is perfect for me because I love to wonder around when drying my hair. Only downside to this is the price which is $100 plus. I could wait for my birthday but that’s just gone and Christmas is aaaagggeessss away.


Next up I came across this brand after reading some elchim hair dryer  reviews. I had not heard much about them before but they seem to make some super great dryers. I love the look of the professional range. Firstly it comes in a variety of colors and secondly has some great features. It has 7 settings which feature different speeds and heat. It is also meant to be really light. I have long hair so have to hold my hand up for ages when drying my hair so the lighter the dryer the better. I also like the fact that it is made in Italy, rather than China. I’m 1/4 Italian on my mom’s side so love anything Italian.

Now I have just found a really good Paul Mitchell Hair Dryer Review to read. 


This is so hard. There are things I love about both these hair dryers but I still can’t decide. Need more coffee!!!

Me and my hair

I love my hair. I could spend hours and hours a day just playing with it and creating lots of different styles. Over the years I have grown it down to my bottom and in a crazy (stupid) emo stage shaved half of it off. During this time I even experimented with different styles and types of wigs but nothing compares to playing with your own hair.

Straighten it


My hair is naturally boring so I like to play around with its texture and style. If my hair is going to be straightened I use ghD straighteners which are simply fabulous. They make my hair beautifully straight and it stays that way all day.

Curl it


I also love to create ringlets in my hair using the babyliss curing wand. I think ringlets are not just cute but they can be really sexy, like Meg Ryan in when Harry met Sally.

Colour it


My hair was every colour of the rainbow by the time I left school. I dyed it pink before everyone else had and auburn before it was cool. I’ve even coloured it white for one Halloween when I dressed as a witch but hated it so vowed I would never do it again. I even had a go at the whole chalking thing but did not like the results.

Give it some tender loving care


After all the playing around I do with my hair I think it is really important for me to look after it. So every few weeks I do absolutely nothing to it other than some deep conditioning. Then I let it rest for a few days knowing that I will probably do something crazy with it soon so I will give it time to recover now.
