HANAair Professional Hair Dryer Review

I was born in 1982. Like many children who grew up in the 80s, I suffer from Bowl Haircut Syndrome. (Jean, the pretty petite blogger behind Extra Petite, knows exactly what I'm talking about!  Ha ha!)  Symptoms include: reoccurring nightmares about concave containers, violent outbursts in the dinnerware section of Williams-Sonoma, and panic attacks at the sight of SNL's Target Lady.

Despite my B. H. P. T. S. D. (bowl haircut post traumatic stress disorder), I must confess that I occasionally long for my Dorothy Hamill tresses. In elementary school, my hair was strong, soft, and full of shine.  Years of heat, bleach, and black hair dye have wreaked havoc on my locks.  On a good day, I'd say my hurr is lackluster at best.

I was kindly sent the HANAair Professional Hair Dryer from Misikko.com, an online retailer that specializes in selling blow dryers, the best flat irons, the Chi Hair Straightener, make-up, and cosmetics. 

My package arrived in two days, which was fantastic.  Everything was clearly packed away with care.

There has been quite a buzz about this dryer in the beauty community, and for good reason.

PROS:  Thanks to this amazing product, my hair is incredibly bright, glossy, and sleek.  I have used this dryer for weeks (in conjunction with nothing more than drug store shampoo and conditioner), and am flabbergasted by my results.  My husband has told me multiple times how great my hair looks, even when it's just thrown up in a messy chignon.  (He noticed the extra shine without my having to point it out!)

This dryer has significantly reduced the amount of time I spend blowing out my down-to-my-waist-length hair.  It's a tad on the heavy side, but with my dry time cut down to 1/4 of what it used to be, I'll cope. 

Last, but not least, the cord is extra long, which is nice.

CONS:  This crème de la crème dryer is accompanied by a crème de la crème price.  It retails for $314.00, however, is currently on sale at Missiko.com for $194.99.  That said, I truly believe this fantastic tool is worth every cent. 

I have one more, tiny complaint...  The instruction manual and buttons are a bit confusing.  Fortunately, a new instruction manual is in the works!

Ebru - I saw your review... It was AWESOME! You set the bar high; I had to make sure my post was up to par. LOL! The dryer is insanely good, isn't it? I have to be honest; I didn't expect the dryer to make *this* big of a difference. I'm glad I was proved wrong! :)
