Most of the poor folks on the Interweb have probably heard my post cries way too many times over my weak attempts at making my hair look decent. Oh sure, I have the occasional obedient hair days, but far too often do I end up dealing with frizzy, flyaway, flat banged hair - good for you that I don't take a lot of hair close-ups, haha!
Well the nice folks over at Misikko must have seen my virtual white flag waving about my hair because they offered to send me their HANA model hair dryer to try - aka the best blow dryer in their hair care equipment arsenal. And when I got my package, well, those guys are not joking!
Aside from the gorge packaging and tons of styling products and other goodies that the dryer came with, I've been using the HANA all weekend and I am considering putting my white flag away. This thing is heavy duty - definitely professional grade in my books: long sturdy power cord, good heft to the dryer, different settings for heat and wind. Shoot, I could dry my entire head of hair in about three minutes on hot/high if I wanted that really wind swept look.
This is me after using my old dryer and a round brush - no products. Frizz Town, hello!
I'm certainly no dryer expert - my previous model had been an old Vidal Sassoon model I think I bought at Walgreens a few years back that pretty much was either on or off. But this thing certainly performs like a luxury sedan! The different settings really offer me great flexibility in styling my hair and the dryer is hefty without being heavy in my hand. This means I may have a fighting chance at beating the frizz!
This is me after using the HANA dryer - still only with a round brush and no products.
It's not styled, but notice how much smoother my hair is?
My down-side is that where the heat button is located is right around where my thumb rests on the grip, so I've been turning the air down to cold a few times when I am styling and drying my hair. That and I think the cord is too long - but as my outlet is located about two feet from where I am standing, that's probably a "just me" thing!
Misikko also has a wide range of curling and flats irons, free ship for orders over $50, customer reviews for each product, plus they offer tons of specials and deals if you sign up for their newsletter. So please check them out for your hair care needs!
