HAIR DRYER –
The dryer comes in a magenta pink plastic body which is extremely light weight to carry during travelling without any fuss at all. In fact, it looks very chic and nice in terms of the looks. The dryer is quite a basic one, to begin with and when I bought this one back in the day I had literally had no knowledge about dryers whatsoever. It comes with 1.8m power cord which is pretty good for styling and doesn’t snag or pull at all while using. The wattage is 1000W and therefore the heat generation is also very basic in that sense.
There are only two option for air flow – medium heat and high heat. The medium one is pretty useless as I had never use it and there was no cool shot button as well. Previously I had medium length straight hair which took about 9-10mins to get completely dry from a damp state. For completely wet hair, it took about 15minutes to get completely dry. I also dried doing some curls with the hair but I wasn’t effective enough for the hair. Moreover, it doesn’t add any shine or smoothness at all and instead makes my hair a tad bit dry and therefore serum was a must have if you’re using this dryer.
Overall, I wasn’t not impressed with the dryer a lot. Firstly because the features or quality wasn’t very impressing and effective and most importantly, the dryer started having technical issues within 1 year which is was shocking from brand like Philips. Therefore, the dryer can only be good for simple hair drying purpose for short to medium hair.
HAIR STRAIGHTENER –
the straightener also comes in a magenta pink outer covering with ceramic plates. It also has a handle lock system which is pretty convenient when you are travelling with the straightener. It fits literally anywhere and light weight and hence, you would love to travel with this compact pretty little thing. The straightener is also a basic one like the dryer but much more convenient and can also be used in various ways. It has the medium heating temperature of 210 degree in which it appropriately straighten the hair as well as prevent the damage from excessive heat. The straightener heats up really fast – something around 30seconds and therefore you won’t have to wait forever to straighten the hair.
The straightener doesn’t come with a negative ion technology therefore it is strongly advisable to use proper heat protecting serum before application. It makes the hair smooth and straight pretty easily without much added effort. You can either poker straight the hair or natural straight with this product. To make the hair poker straight to you have invest a good amount of time. It adds a nice shine to the hair which looks pretty gorgeous.
The plate of the straightener is neither too narrow not too broad – it just has the right size. However, people with thick hair might desire a broader version. It works perfectly for the bangs as well as to the length of the hair when you section them properly. You can also use the straightener to add bouncy curls by twirling them properly.
Overall, I am very impressed with the straightener for the price I paid. It is a really good experience to use it and works very well for my hair. It reduces frizz and smoothens it for a longer duration during distributing the heat evenly while straightening.
