I bought this product because I have quite thin hair that doesn't tend to hold its body. I had read about this product on the Boots online site. It was quite cheap at £22.99 and came with two attachments. One attachment can be used to blow air directly onto the roots. It is best if you blow the roots with hot hair and then turn it to cool t 'set the hair'.
The second attachment is a sort of scalp massager. I did not find this attachment to be of any use at all. The power settings are very good and on the highest setting, it blows air at quite a high rate. I don't tend to use the two lower settings. It is quite light to hold, which is an advantage.
However, if it is turned on for more that ten minutes, it automatically cuts out for two minutes to allow the hairdryer to cool down. This is a problem when doing my daughters hair because she has very thick hair and it takes about twenty minutes to dry her hair.
For me, I now have wonderfully bouncy hair that is full of body, thanks to this product.
My last Nicky Clarke hair dryer broke after 7 years and I used it regularly as i wash my hair 3-4 times a week. It was such a reliable hairdryer so when it broke my first choice was another Nicky Clarke. I bought this hairdryer from Boots for £29.99 and am pleased to say that it is very much like the first, reliable, easy to use, powerful and fast drying.
The packaging states that 'this 2000W hairdryer is perfect for everyday styling, with variable speed and heat settings.' It is extremely powerful in order to get hair dried fast, however if desired you can turn this setting right down. Also, it has a nozzle on the end of the hairdryer which is ideal for styling and drying the underneath of your hair, which is ideal for me as my hair is very thick and long. You can also change the temperature of the air which i think is imperative as high heat constantly on hair can cause so much damage. This hairdryer also has ceramic technology which means you are left with a glossy finish.
I love this hairdryer. If i dry my hair immediately after showering with a big paddle brush, I don't even need to straighten it. I would definitely recommend. It is a very reasonable price but with very good results.
What could be better, a hairdryer that is designed by and for a professional hairdresser!
I dry my hair just about everytime I wash it, sometimes I let it dry by itself but its so thick that I really need to dry it properly otherwise it will still be wet the next day if I tie it back in a ponytail.
I'm not too fussy about how I dry it as I then straighten it afterwards with my GHD's so I don't really use or need a fancy hairdryer at all that has all different heat settings, diffusers etc. This hairdryer from Nicky Clark is perfect. Its fairly new as my last one blew up, literally and I needed a new one but didn't weant to buy something very expensive. This hairdryer cost me £24.99 from Boots
Nicky Clarke is a famous hairdresser, you might of seen him on shows like This Morning, he has lovely flowing locks and is a celebrity stylist so he probably knows what he is tlaking about in terms of hairdressing products. While I'm sure he didn't make this hairdryer himself I'm sure he had some technical input, telling hte designers what he, a hairdresser would want and need from a hairdryer.
According to the paperwork I got with this hairdryer, "The Nicky Clarke 2000W pro hair dryer is perfect for everyday styling, with variable heat and speed settings so you can style depending on your hair type. Plus, ceramic technology in the dryer as well as the diffuser help you to achieve a luscious looking finish."
This hairdryer is nice and sleek looking, black with Nicky Clarke written in it. The nozzle at the front is flat but wide which I like as you can then get a section of your hair, pull it with your brush and then dry the sections flat against the flat nozzle which I find works really well for my hair. The dryer has two speed settings, fairly fast and quite fast, no they are not actually called this, this is just the way they appear to me! I generally use the quite fast setting as this dries my hair really quickly. There are also three heat settings. I find the highest one is too hot for my hair and my head so I always have it on the middle setting which is fine. I like that this dryer only has a few speeds and settings as it means its quite a simple dryer and not too much going on. Its a 2000W dryer which I gather is quite a strong motor and after a few months of use I would say that it is still working perfectly well.
I get nice results from this hairdryer. Like I've said above I normally use my straighteners afterwards but if I don't even though I haven't styled my hair its still nice and shiny and not too frizzy.
"Say goodbye to dull, lifeless hair when you use this salon professional dryer. Featuring advanced ceramic technology in both the dryer and the diffuser, this dryer will help your hair to be beautifully shiny, softer and more manageable."
So, don't take it from me, take it from Nicky, use this hairdryer for nice shiny hair.
