~*~*~ Toni & Guy Daily Conditioning Dryer ~*~*~
When it comes to hair dryers I normally choose one which is a good make, has a long cord, dries hair quickly and isn't too heavy. My dear hair dryer, which lasted for years, sadly passed away recently and went to hair dryer heaven. So on my quest for a new hair dryer I found the options endless, every hair dryer offering better results than the next and in the end I was at my wits end. How to pick a hair dryer when they all sound amazing? In the end I decided to go for this Toni & Guy hair dryer. I know that they are a reputable brand and I have used some of their products in the past, which were very good quality. The thing about this hair dryer which lured me to it was the fact that it claimed to hydrate hair and reduce frizz. My hair is thick and curly, so anything that helps to reduce frizz is a definite plus. Please see below for my thoughts on this product...
~*~*~ Packaging and Product Details ~*~*~
The hair dryer comes in a white, cardboard box. On the front of the box is the Toni & Guy logo, a picture of the hair dryer and the products name (Daily Conditioning Dryer). The packaging looks very sophisticated and expensive.
Inside the box is the hair dryer, attachment concentrator nozzle and an instruction manual/warning booklet. The hair dryer is lightweight (only weighing 0.655kg) which makes it comfortable to hold. The dimensions of the hair dryer are: 27cm H x 22cm W x 8.5xcm D. The hair dryer is a reasonable size, not too big and not too small.
The hair dryer has two rocker switches which control the temperature and the speed. There are two speed settings and two heat settings: Medium/Fast and Medium Heat/Hot Heat. There is also a 'Cool Shot' button situated on the stem of the hair dryer. The motor on this hair dryer packs a punch with 2000W of power.
Overall the design of the hair dryer is plain and simple. The hair dryer and nozzle are made from shiny, black plastic. And the Toni & Guy logo is clearly displayed along the side of the hair dryer in white writing.
This hair dryer comes with a 2 year manufacturers guarantee.
~*~*~ Price and Availability ~*~*~
I purchased this hair dryer around three months ago from Tesco's for £13.00. It is currently out of stock in Tesco's but you can also purchase it from Asda for £18.00 or Argos for £21.99.
~*~*~ In Use ~*~*~
This hair dryer turned out to be idea for what I needed. My hair is long and thick and takes quite a long time to dry with most hair dryers. I found this hair dryer to be very powerful making the drying time take around 8-10minutes, which I was extremely pleased with. I normally use the lowest heat and the fasted speed to dry my hair, however if I am in a rush I will put it on the hottest setting. The only problem I find with the hottest setting is under my very long and heavy hair it can get incredibly hot. This is where I find the 'cool shot' to come in very useful. I know a lot of people think the 'cool shot' feature is pointless, but I find it very handy when I need to cool my neck and face down.
The cord is a fantastic 3m long, which is incredibly useful as my power socket is quite far away from my mirror, so I can actually see what I am doing. The other great thing about this hair dryer is it is lightweight which means I don't end up with a dead arm after I have dried my hair. There is nothing worse than trying to hold a really heavy hair dryer over your head for 10 minutes (or is it just me being a weakling?).
Did it hydrate and reduce frizz? ...Yes it did to a point. I don't think any hair dryer is particularly hydrating but I would say my hair did look a lot less frizzy. I have used other hair dryers in the past which have dried my hair out and this one seems to be kind to hair.
Overall I was extremely impressed with this hair dryer and for £13.00 it was an absolute bargain!
~*~*~ Would I Recommend? ~*~*~
Yes! I would definitely recommend this hair dryer. It is not too chunky or heavy; it dries hair quickly and leaves hair looking less frizzy. I think for £13.00 you can't go wrong. I was quite shocked that a Toni & Guy hair dryer would only cost such a small amount. I am going to give this hair dryer 5 out of 5 Dooyoo stars. It is one of my favourite hair dryers and I am just hoping it can withstand the test of time.
Thank you for taking the time to read my review :o)
This is a very good hairdryer. I have thick hair, and it takes a while to dry. Well not with this powerful dryer! It is fast, powerful and even quite quiet into the bargain. This is easily the best hairdryer I have ever had, and the power coming from that pointy end is immense.
I find that the best way to dry hair is to separate it into sections, then pin up the remaining hair while I'm drying a section. This dryer removes the moisture from each section very quickly, resulting in a quicker blow dry.
It also leaves my hair smooth and straight and easy to manage. Obviously with help from a bit of product, no dryer alone can really condition hair, but the difference between this and a less powerful machine is clear. The quicker speed allows me to brush through each section only once as I go, meaning less chance of flyaways.
Banish frizz with the 2000W Toni & Guy Daily Conditioning Dryer. It features an ionic barrel that soothes hair as you dry. Two heat settings give you plenty of styling flexibility and once you've created your style simply set it with the professional cool shot. The conditioning dryer comes with a slim concentrator nozzle for precision heat and has a soft-touch finish for easy gripping. Comes with a 2 year manufacturer's guarantee.
