My current dryer looks like it belongs in a museum.
I purchased it for fifteen dollars from the chemist about twelve years ago. Not only is it noisy and scorching hot, but it also dries my hair slowly. Oh, and I forgot to mention, it makes my hair smell like burnt toast... it was definitely time for it to retire.
It was the moisture infusing part of Panasonic's nanoe Hair Care Series EH-NA67 Hair Dryer that really caught my attention. I have recently undergone a colour change, transitioning from partially grown-out bleach blonde to a vibrant coppery red. It's a real statement colour and I want it to look healthy and glossy, not dull and dry.
Due to the combination of my prehistoric hair dryer and my fine, wavy hair type, I struggle to achieve a sleek look through blow drying alone. I often find myself having to use a straightener afterward to smooth it out. Unfortunately, all this heat is contributing to breakage, especially in the areas where I still have bleach and the ends of my hair.
So, let's talk about the Nanoe technology and how it sets the Panasonic Moisture-Infusing dryer apart from the rest.
At first glance, it may seem counterintuitive to focus on adding moisture back into your hair when the purpose of drying is to remove moisture, right? But that's exactly how this innovative dryer works. Using two zinc electrodes, it generates double mineral negative ions that penetrate the hair shaft, infusing it with ultrafine moisture particles. These particles are incredibly small, about a billion times smaller than steam, and work their magic by hydrating your hair from within.
I have to admit, it's some pretty nerdy stuff, and I don't claim to fully grasp what it all means. However, what I do know is that Nanoe technology holds 1000 times more moisture than traditional ions, making those ionic dryers like my old one seem ancient.
The best part is, this technology not only benefits your hair but also takes care of your scalp. After all, healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp, and that's why it definitely pays to spend a little TLC up top.
Ultimately, my goal for this four-week trial is to achieve smooth hair with just one go. I don't want to spend time blow drying and then straightening to tame the frizz. I'm a busy single mom with twins, dogs, and a long commute to work. Life is hectic, and I don't have the luxury of styling my hair every single day. I simply need a fast blow dryer that delivers a sleek finish with minimal effort. Is that too much to ask for?
