On hair

I’ve always been a hair person. As far back as I can remember, I really, really cared about my hair. Now, that does not mean it was always styled properly. My girlfriends will tell you I had some unfortunate hair in middle school. It was wavy, but I wanted it pin straight, and this was before the flat-iron revolution. So I’d sleep on it wet, blow dry it while pushing it flat against my head and … well, you can imagine. Now, years later, I have a really simple routine: wash about three times a week, apply Moroccan oil while wet, and blow dry. In November, the last piece of that puzzle got a little more exciting :)

Misikko.com asked me to test and review their¬†HANA Air Premiere Hair Dryer and I’ve been using it since late November.

This blowdryer is by far the sleekest and most powerful I’ve ever used. Like most dryers, it has different levels of both cold & hot settings, but a bonus is its long, durable cord and professional, quality feel. The heat that comes from the dryer is more intense than anything I’ve used in the past, which has resulted in quicker hair drying and less frizz in my experience. I love it!

It’s not in my personal budget to spend more than $100 on a hair dryer, but if you’re looking to invest in one, I fully recommend it. Find out more about it here:¬†http://www.misikko.com/professional-hair-dryers.html

I was given my own HANA Air Premiere Hair Dryer for agreeing to participate in this review. In the top photo, my hair is dried with the HANA dryer and styled with a curling iron. Thanks for reading!

    I wish I had known middle-school-you – I would’ve shared my pre-flatiron secret of wrapping a hardover book in a towel to use with, yes, an actual iron, to straighten hair. Haha, yes, I was that committed to non-wavy locks.

    My hair dryer has sparks coming out of the centre of it. This can’t be good. Can I purchase this one in Saint John?

      Hey Judith! I’ve totally had the spark problem in the past. Another time I smelled burning and looked inside the dryer and the coils were red hot. Not good! As far as I can tell the easiest way to purchase this dryer is online, from the link I listed. There is a good chance, though, that some local shops carry similar salon-quality dryers that will likely be just as nice! Good luck xo

    I’ve always wondered if a blow dryer can make the difference. I always buy the cheapest one at Walmart that comes with a diffuser. Oh and my middle and high school hair was not something I’d like to have again! My hair always refused to behave when I’d blow dry it straight. And in undergrad, my friends and I would use a clothing iron to straighten one another’s hair, haha.
