I’ve watched my wife go through countless hair dryers over the past 12+ years. I got her this Dyson for Christmas she is still raving about it. Nothing has ever dried her hair the way this thing does apparently. Also, as a man who occasionally steals his wife’s hair dryer to act as a low temp heat gun, not a single one of her older ones has ever been built as premium as the Dyson.
Top it off with them being made in the USA and the price, IMO, doesn’t seem so bad.
@jestermx6 Thanks for the review! I’ve heard it’s really good at the drying part, but I’m maybe even more excited about the fact that the weight is in the handle and it doesn’t have an evil hair-sucking fan in the back.
@arielleslie No problem. Also she has said many times that it dries her hair much faster than all the other ones she’s had. I never thought a man could get away with buying his wife a hair dryer for Christmas in 2018, but here we are. What a time to be alive!
@shiranissosexy Yeah, I’ve been considering it for months, so $100 off made me finally go for it. Considering that many people will use this for something like 200 hours a year, the price starts sounding a little less insane if it’s genuinely better than a cheap hairdryer.
@Alazilla What’s better about them? I know Dyson has a desk fan and floor fan that kind of look similar, but I’ve never bothered to understand why they would be better. From what I understand, they just move the blades into the body of the device and it still functions identically. Is it the same for these, or is there a functional difference that makes them preferable?
Oh, you know what. LOL. When you said, “my salon” I assumed you were the owner of said salon. Now that I’m thinking about it, you’re saying that like I’d say “my barber uses straight razors.” I’m an idiot.
I’m gonna leave my question to you anyway, because you still made the comment.
No evil fan on back that sucks in long hair and rips it out of your head.
Weight of the motor is in the handle, reducing wrist discomfort (also makes the hairdryer generally more manuverable).
Most hairdryers basically use the same heating element as a toaster with up to three options: off, creepy guy breathing on your neck, burn your hair. The Dyson has a thermometer in the head and adjusts the heat controls based on the actual temperature that air is coming out.
It’s quieter, which is pretty nice with something that you put a couple inches from your ears.
@whoneeds8 Yeah. What kind of a moron would spend money on improving the experience of something that they do every single day when they could be smart and spend that same money on a remote control drone?
@arielleslie This was nearly my response to just about everyone that was shocked when I told them how much I spent on an automatic litter box. “Who’d spend $160 on a litter box?” Yeah, I would, because now I touch it once every 3 weeks and my house doesn’t smell like shit. What else would I spend it on, something that doesn’t make my life easier and more enjoyable?
