Panasonic Nanoe Dryer
The hair dyer. Bane of your life or saviour? For myself, it's always been a love hate relationship. Mainly, I hate them and they love giving me excess drying times and frazzled hair. Having such thick, long hair means an eternity sat on the end of the bed, desperately reasoning with the stream of hot air to dry faster. I just have no patience, so for the past few years have mainly left my hair to fend for itself when it comes to drying. A quick pat with the towel and it's either up in a bun for slightly tousled waves the following day, or it's to sit there, slightly soggy and air drying until I can bear to do anything with it.
Enter the Panasonic Nanoe Dryer*. A thing of beauty and my new favourite toy! Okay, so it's not a toy, but for all the use I'm getting out of it, it might as well be. Already a massive hit in Asia, Panasonic hope to cash in on a very lucrative market with a first for Western consumers. It's easy to see why they chose this particular dry as their hero product. A powerful 2000 watts, and nanoe technology that packs a considerable punch. So what's nanoe? Unlike normal dryers that draw moisture out of the hair and leave it quite limp and also very dehydrated, the nano technology works to put moisture back into the hair and scalp, sorting out any dryness and giving you amazingly smooth and silky hair. I tend to suffer in the summer with an irritable scalp, so I've already seen results from a few uses.
There are three attachments available with the hairdryer, a condenser, a diffuser and a quick dry nozzle. I've kept the quick dry nozzle on since opening it up and the time it takes to go from sopping wet to dry is half the time it takes with my other hairdryer. It manipulates the air flow and alternates strong and soft currents, really getting into the hair instead of blowing it in all directions. This also helps keep any fly aways in place! There are three speed and heat settings plus a cool shot button. The coolest heat setting has been heaven in this heat and worth picking up for that fact alone! It also has a fairly long power cord, which is the first thing I noticed other than the stunning pink on matte black.
At £99.99 from Boots, it's not the cheapest out there but for the money you save on hair products, it all balances out. There were all sorts of oils and serums I'd throw on my hair afterwards, but now I take one quick feel of my tresses and know it doesn't need it. I'm actually proud of my hairdryer, it makes my hair look and, more importantly, feel amazing.
Would you buy the new Panasonic Nanoe Dryer? What do you use?
