~ ~ THE HAIRDRYER ~ ~
The hairdryer is made by john Frieda who is well known for making a large range of hair care products for all types of hair. His products can be found in stores such as Boots, Superdrug and some local supermarkets. This particular hairdryer helps to leave hair looking soft and shiny, thanks to the iconic technology which helps to control frizz. When using the hairdryer it releases ions to surround and condition each strand of your hair, which smoothes the outer layer of the hair and this controls frizz. The hair-dryer itself has a number of different features which are shown below:

* Slim Concentrator Nozzle

* Long life professional AC motor, which generates powerful airflow for faster drying
* Advanced Ionic technology controls frizz and creates shine
* 3 heat and 2 speed settings
* Cold Shot to set your style
* Extra long 3m cord
* 5 Year guarantee

I purchased this in Boots when it was on special offer for £27.00, this was fantastic value as it had £32.00 off of the normal price.
~ ~ PACKAGING ~ ~
The hair-dryer comes in a dark coloured box, which also includes a concentrator nozzle and a manual. The hair-dryer is packed well in protective cardboard and plastic wrapping. The cord is also coiled and tied with a plastic cable tie to keep the cord looking neat. The box is made quite cheaply as you can see that it's a normal brown cardboard box which is then covered in the John Frieda packaging. How-ever the packaging can both be recycled.
The hair-dryer itself is silver and fairly light-weight at first. The buttons are on the main handle of the dryer. It doesn't state on the buttons what each one is; how-ever this can be easily worked out as there is 3 heat settings and just 2 speed settings. The cool shot button is grey and situated above the other buttons. When turning the hair-dryer on, I was quite surprised at how loud it was. It was certainly a lot louder than my previous dryer; how-ever this did feel a lot more powerful then my previous one. I used the concentrator nozzle to dry my fringe; this was easy to clip onto the end of the dryer and was easy to remove, without it getting too hot to touch. They recommend using the lowest heat setting and the cool shot button, when your hair is almost dry to set the style. I dried my hair using the 2nd heat setting, this felt comfortable. I felt as though the 3rd heat setting was a bit too hot for my liking. I often find that when using the cool shot button on a dryer it takes a while to feel it actually go cold, how-ever with this dryer, as soon as you press the button you can feel the cold air come out of the dryer. After drying my hair, which didn't take long at all due to the power the hair-dryer gives; it felt a lot smoother and softer than it did before. Quite often I get little wispy bits on the top of my hair which seems to stick up a little; how-ever this now wasn't the case. My hair was smooth, soft and look smooth and shiny and in really good condition. Even after straightening my hair, it still felt smooth and soft. I was really impressed with the results the hair-dryer gave.

There is a very large range of different ionic hair-dryer's available to buy in stores such as Boots, Superdrug, Amazon and other retail outlets. These do vary in price, and can start from about £18.40 ranging to about £40.00. Most of the hair-dryers have the same features which often include different speed/heat settings and a cool shot button. Some of these hair-dryers do come with a diffuser, if you use one of these. I wanted one with a concentrator nozzle as I find this better when drying my hair and styling it.
The dryer is quite noisy, sounding more like a small vacuum cleaner than an actual hair-dryer. How-ever this is a power-full hairdryer and dries hair quickly, which is great if you haven't got much time on your hands or if you are in a rush to go out. The heat settings and speed setting are perfect when drying different types and lengths of hair as you can use the setting which suits you the most. The cool shot really helps to set your style in place and to create a shiny, smooth finish. The dryer isn't as light-weight as some other's and I imagine if you have long hair and are using a brush whilst drying your arm may start to ache a little. This dryer certainly lives up to its claims. I think this was a bargain, as it was half price, how-ever you will probably be able to find another similar dryer for a cheaper price. I give this product 4 stars as everything is really good about it apart from that's it's nosier than other dryers.
