Advantages Lightweight, leaves my hair looking wonderfully smooth and affordable
Disadvantages None for me
I had desperately needed a new hairdryer for months, particularly as my last one would no longer operate with the switches and had stuck itself on the highest speed and heat setting. Consequently, I simply had to plug it into the mains and blast my hair with the dryer, which over a period of time had become a little too hot for comfort. It often decided to smoke and the last straw was when I saw orange sparks emitting from the grille, so my old and faithful Boots dryer was sent to hairdryer heaven.I carried out a little research for my new purchase whilst taking into consideration my two requirements; one of which was that the dryer needed to be at least 2000 watts and the other was that it had to offer a choice of both heat and speed settings. A few brands made it to my shortlist with my final decision being the Nicky Clarke Frizz Control 2000w Turbo Hairdryer, Model Number NHD082 and this review discusses my experience of owning it.
I can vividly recall using my mother’s heavy pink coloured Pifco dryer many years ago, which resulted in a very sore arm and wrist as it took absolutely ages to effectively dry my thick locks. However, all modern dryers are extremely lightweight and whilst there is no weight information provided on the box I would guess that it’s less than 500 grams. The dryer is aesthetically pleasing with its’ modern and sleek design of shiny chrome and the touches of purple on the one end and two of the switches whilst offering a good sized handle, which is covered with a black coloured easy grip material. I find this dryer much easier to hold than my previous model, as it comfortably fits into my hand.The dryer offers three heat options and two speeds with the appropriate buttons being in easy reach when holding the dryer. Consequently, I can click on my choice with my finger tips as opposed to turning the dryer around to carry out my selection. I like the fact that it offers a turbo function, which is extremely handy when I’m in a rush and it also offer a cool blast of air that assists when setting a style. Unfortunately, similar to that of all hair dryers, I need to keep my finger on each of these buttons when using and it would be more beneficial if they could operate from one simple press. However, this is not really an issue, but solely a grumble of mine as opposed to a design fault.
According to the box the dryer operates with ionic technology, which prior to my purchase was something I’d heard of, but didn’t really know what it meant.
