Disadvantages: gets dirty quickly
I actually can't remember when I bought this hairdryer I've had it that long! I'm guessing at least six or seven years though and it's not as if I've treated it particularly well. When I bought it, it was a fairly new model and cost £15.99 from Argos which I managed to get free as I had a voucher. I chose this hairdryer as the BaByliss brand is trustworthy and the 2000W as I like to dry my hair superfast as I wash and blow dry my hair pretty much every day. (I surprisingly have quite soft and well conditioned hair!)
The hairdryer came with two nozzles, I didn't know which either was for and ended up losing them so I can't comment on them. The hairdryer is a very nice shape, not too angular which I personally don't like in hairdryers and it is black with silver buttons and detailing on the sides. It is very comfortable to hold, the handle is a good size and it extremely light for a hairdryer, my hair doesn't take long to dry at all but I have never had any wrist ache from using it. I have taken this on holiday with me and travelled back and forth between home and uni with it in my bag not being heavy or taking up a ridiculous amount of space in my bag too.
The hairdryer has two heat/speed settings and I nearly always use the hottest as it is quicker and another setting which you keep your thumb pressed down on to work, which is a cooling setting. I find on some of my friends hairdryers the cool setting is weak and not actually that cool whereas this hairdryer you can feel a difference. Although the hottest setting isn't uncomfortably hot I still like to use the cooling setting as it does feel nice on my head.
The only problem I have with this hairdryer is the part that sucks in the air gets very dirty and clogged with dust and fluff, I don't think this effects how well the hairdryer performs but it doesn't look very nice and can be a pain to try and clear as it gets stuck in the wiry mesh here. I tend to just use a tissue and a few cotton buds and then it's fine.
Considering that I have used this dryer almost everyday for atleast 6+ years and it's still in perfect working condition I would really recommend this hairdryer. It dries my hair so fast, I do have fairly fine hair which dries quick with most dryers but I haven't used many other hairdryers that do the job as quick as this one. I'm not sure about the 'Turbo Shine' effect it promises but I do have very soft, shiny hair which I get a lot of compliments for so I can say it definitely doesn't ruin hair. It is very lightweight and easy to transport around. I have just bought a second one of these so I can keep one at home and one at uni just so I don't have to worry about forgetting it (for someone who washes their hair everyday I can't be without my hairdryer!). This time is cost only £10 from amazon brand new which I was more than happy to pay as it really is a great hairdryer that I fully recommend to everyone!
Do make sure you use heat protecting spray as they really do help keep your hair in better condition from the heat of the dryer!
Summary: Amazing hairdryer 10stars!
