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.
