      Retractable cord

      I bought this hair dryer last month after my last one died on me. It cost me £25 on Amazon and the main reason I chose it was because it has a retractable cord. I also like the fact it was a shocking pink colour.

      When the dryer arrived I was supposed at how light it was. When I opened the box I was thrilled with the colour, it is a bright fuchsia pink and very glossy looking, I love pink so it's right up my street. Inside the box you also get a nozzle for precision drying unfortunately that is a boring black colour.

      The drier is described by Babyliss as having an advanced fan technology and a 2000w motor which delivers a powerful airflow to dry even the thickest of hair quickly. The drier also has an ionic release system which coats the hair with ions this enhances hairs condition and helps to prevent frizz.

      The hair dyer has a full length cord which is described by Babyliss as being of 'salon length' for me this just means I can sit on my bed and dry my hair as the cord is long enough to allow this.

      The dryer has 3 heat settings cool, medium and hot, hot, hot for me the third heat setting is just unbareable my head felt like it was on fire so I tend to stick with the medium setting. There are two speed settings and also a cool shot button to set your style. To use this function you simply need to depress the button and hold for the desired length of time.

      The dryer is nice to use, it has a nice lightweight feel and the handle is ergonomically designed so it fits nicely in your hand. The motor is a powerful and it gives a good blast of hair, it takes about 20 minutes to dry my long, thick hair and it leaves a it looking quite straight and frizz free minimising straightening time. I always use the fastest heat setting for me but when I dry my daughters hair we use the slower one which is ample for her.

      The best feature of this hair dryer is the retractable cord. You simply press a button at the back of the drier and the cord winds into the housing at the back if the dryer. This can be potentially a hazard as it winds very fast, I would advise you to hold the plug the first time I didn't and I ended up with the plug hitting my leg and bruising it.

      Overall this is a good hair dryer, it doesn't take up a lot of space and the cord is neatly stored away when not in use. You can even open the cord housing to keep it clean. I would recommend this dyer for the price it is good value and gives a good finish to your hair.
