What is important when buying a good hair dryer? The presence of several nozzles, necessarily — cold and hot modes, the weight, preferably, is lighter, and so that the price is as low as possible! All this in one hair dryer, of course, is unrealistic to collect, but I found something similar. Meet the Philips ProCare HP8260 Hair Dryer. That’s what we’ll talk about.
Myself hair dryer big I would have thought professional. It’s definitely not good for travel. Quite heavy, but it seemed to me a guarantee of power: the heavier, the more powerful. But I was so wrong.
A huge plus is that the hair dryer has an ionization functionmultiple temperature settings
Of the minuses, I can note that hair dryer is heavy especially for a woman’s hand. At the first attempts to dry the hair, the hand was very tired and numb, but due to the fact that the weight is evenly distributed, the upper part does not pull the hand with the hair dryer to the floor.
Perhaps the heaviness is felt due to the almost straight handle, holding the hair dryer in your hand is, in principle, real (due to the rubberized handle) but not very convenient.
Another plus is that the hair dryer has a very long cord — 2.5 meters. It was the length that I lacked in my old hair dryers. Now you can dry your hair in more than one place, and go to the mirror without any problems, but go quietly into another room.
The hair dryer is very good power ‑2300 W And because of this, apparently, he is so heavy. The power of professional hair dryers starts from just 2300 watts, so you can safely consider a professional hair dryer.
When using a hair dryer, I did not see the benefit of the ionization function, although it is aimed at “pacifying” unruly hair and additional smoothness. I didn’t see much of a difference with her or without her.
A very important factor for me is that in a hair dryer there is a cold air function. This means that the hair can be dried without exposure to temperature, while this does not affect the drying time, and moreover, it protects the hair from dryness and split ends.
Played a very important role in choosing a hair dryer for me protective grille at the back. Old hair dryers kept getting hair in the grates, and the hair drying procedure had to be stopped. It even got to the point that the hair was simply cut off. This hair dryer has a rather small grate, the hair never got into it during use. Also, to clean the hair dryer from debris and dust that enters through the grate, just open it and clean the hair dryer.
The hair dryer contains not an ordinary heating element, but a ceramic one. ThermoProtect technology is used, which means that drying will cause minimal damage to the hair, and they will be smooth and not frizzy.
Comes with hairdryer 2 nozzles: nozzle concentrator, and diffuser. I usually, always use the first one, because I don’t see any benefit from the second, though it dries the roots well.
How long does it take to dry hair? The hair dryer is very powerful, which means that the procedure for drying hair lasts much less than with a conventional home hair dryer. I dry my hair first with hot air for 3 minutes, and then with cold air for about 3–5. As a result,the whole procedure takes no more than 10 minutes. Very handy when you need to get somewhere quickly)
The important thing is that no matter how much I dry my hair, neither the hair dryer nor my hair do not overheat.
You can also face the problem of storing a hair dryer. Indeed, under such a large hair dryer you need a lot of space. I hang it on the wall, since there is a loop for this.
Finally, I would like to talk about design. To design Philips always approach with responsibility, and it always turns out with a bang. And this hair dryer is no exception. The hair dryer itself is very beautiful, matte, with purple accents, it looks simple and beautiful. There are no superfluous inscriptions on the hair dryer itself, only the name of the hair dryer and the brand. Very concise.
In conclusion, I would like to say that the dryer is excellent. Beautiful, powerful, with the ability to change nozzles and temperature modes. But you need to adapt to the fact that the hair dryer is quite bulky and heavy.
