I’m very familiar with Vidal Sassoon haircare and have used their styling products for years but I never knew they had a range of electrical hair tools. I have been trying out the Infra Radiance Diffuser Dryer* and this is a serious piece of kit, its changed the way I feel about drying my hair.
I recently had my hair cut quite a bit shorter than I wanted, it was even too short to tie up & I was a little stressed about it because my hair is naturally wavy and the shorter it is the more voluminous & wavy it is. So with it being this short, I had to style it every time I washed otherwise it looked like a mushroom on my head (I used to just sport a topknot 80% of the time). This meant with my thick wavy locks I was spending almost an hour drying & styling it & in that heat wave we had in July I was overheating in a sea of hot hair tools. Not how I wanted to be spending my mornings.
This Vidal Sassoon Dryer had bold claims –
‘Gentle infrared technology enhances your blow dry by delivering heat more evenly to the hair, helping maintain the natural moisture balance to help prevent over-drying for faster styling*, reduced frizz and soft, conditioned, radiant hair.’
This dryer was a little heavier than my old one but it didn’t take long to get used to that. It has 2-speed settings & 2 heat settings. I liked the control that gave me. It comes with two attachments a concentrator nozzle for sleek smooth precision drying or the diffuser to create curls/volume or texture. I have been using the concentrator nozzle as I want to tame my frizzy wavy hair. The idea of this infrared technology is to deliver heat to your hair more evenly so it is faster drying, kinder on your hair and reduces frizz.
I tend to wear my hair quite natural and leave the waves in but I do like to reduce the frizz and make it look somewhat tidy but still natural and relaxed. I like that this dryer didn’t take away too much volume but tamed the frizz at my roots and made my waves sleeker and I think this has helped me to go up to 3 days without washing my hair (that’s almost unheard of for me).
I like the fact that it delivers heat to your hair depending on how wet each section is, this means you won’t over dry your hair and cause damage and frizz which gives you dull hair. I normally have to dry my hair for so long & I know how damaging that was but since using this dryer I have found it a lot quicker. I section off my hair & use the concentrator nozzle to get right into the roots & blow dry down my hair away from the roots to the tips and my hair feels softer looks smoother and I give my hair a blast of cool air at the end to prolong my style & increase shine. Who knew that worked!?
So I’m over the moon with this dryer and although its quite heavy for my feeble arms I’m getting used to that and it is so much faster to dry my hair now and I’m even growing to love my new shorter hair although I’m still excited for it to grow just that little bit longer so I can tie it up some days.
Let me know if you have used any of the Vidal Sassoon Hair Tools or how you typically style your hair.
