The Hairdryer With Your Name On It

When I was offered the opportunity to test out on of LanaiBlo's hairdryer's I'd love to tell you that I read about all their fantastic features and couldn't wait to try them out for myself but I admit it was the fact that my name would appear on it that peaked my initial interest.

Once the momentary love of personalisation passed and now that I have been using the LanaiBlo hairdryer since the beginning of the year I'm now able to provide more of my thoughs for you on how the hairdryer performs beyond the aesthetics.

To look at the LanaiBlo hairdryer it doesn't appear unlike any other you'd find on a quick search of google and their first claim of being 'powerful 2400 watt' can be found in more affordable versions for a fraction of the price although I can speak to them comparatively beyond what I've seen. I can say that the hairdryer I had been using for nearly 7 years prior was a more expensive 'professional' version purchased through a hairdresser friend so it says something about spending a little more.  The benefits of a more powerful hairdryer are that you will quite simply dry your hair quicker; which if you're someone with hair extensions or a long thick head of hair can be a bonus, especially during these warmer months.

My hair dries very quickly, even with one of those ridiculous hotel hairdryers and because my styling is limited - in short tip head upside down and wave hairdryer around till dry - I don't feel a slave to the hairdryer and like I'm spending too long blasting it. That said I do find that with the LanaiBlo the time spent has been reduced even further and I can gain an extra couple of of minutes in bed before work - always a bonus.

If you are used to spending hours in front of the mirror with a hairdryer the fact that LanaiBlo is lightweight and ergonomically designed will be of interest. I can't say I've ever needed to 'minimise fatigue' due to blowdrying my hair but I imagine those with disabilities struggle with what I consider a simple task and they will look at this with intrigue. Is it really lightweight? Honestly I would say no. Is it lighter than the hairdryer I was using though? Most definitely. As mentioned I hadn't even looked at the LanaiBlo claims until recently as I was putting together my thoughts for this post and it was only after I suddenly realised how different it was. No it isn't light as a feather but it definitely feels more streamlined and not as cumbersome.

If static hairs are a problem for you, and we've all been there with pesky flyaway hairs ruining what we intended to be a smooth and shiny finish to our blow you'll find the LanaiBlo has Ionic Technology and for added assistance a Cold Shot feature which helps for those who doing a little more styling than I do. And you'll have no frizz due to the Ceramic Tourmaline. All these features certainly leave me with a more polished look than it's predecessor which for an amateur I would've just presumed it was my styling technique rather than something I could change so I can see the value in the LanaiBlo Hairdryer.

The LanaiBlo hairdryer does not come cheap at £99 but you are paying a salon standard professional hairdryer which does, in my amateur experience and simple hair needs perform better than others I've used and certainly more affordable options - and its a third compared to the Dyson which despite a desire for I don't think I could ever spend that much money on.

Returning to the aesthetics I like that its available in a choice of colours and as you can see I picked a white or there is a bright pink if you're feeling a bit more colourful. And that personalisation I was so excited about? Well that's an extra £15 and a nice touch but not entirely exciting as I hoped. It almost looks a little out of place, for the added expense I would like to see the font available in a choice of colours or sizes so it became a design feature of substance. That aside I think it would make for an ideal gift for someone living in shared accommodation or perhaps someone off to university who will be unable to fit in costly blow drys at the hairdresser and avoid the hairdryer being misplaced in halls.

A shampoo and conditioner duo I have been using regularly has been from the Lee Stafford Bleach Blondes range. Both the shampoo and conditioner are to 'lightly tone, refresh and restore' - in short to knock out those brassy tones us bleach blondes are familiar with.

I've really noticed a different to my balayaged hair since using this Lee Stafford duo and fit it into my hair washing regime at least once a week. The purple toning shampoo knocks out the brassy tones and then the conditioner smooths and hydrates - a winning combination as my hair, certainly at the bleached roots leans more dry these days.

I haven't yet decided how I feel about the Lee Stafford Bleach Blondes Tone Correcting Conditioning Spray as its the product I've used least preferring the familar routine of shampoo and condition in the shower . That said I've been reaching for it more recently when I use a regular shampoo and find that my hair is continuing to look less brassy when I do so.

Of course if unlike me you do not wash your hair daily this might be an ideal alternative to the aforementioned duo as you simply spray into towel dried hair and continue as normal. I am continuing to use and do find in the Summer I reach more for leave in conditioners as I let hair air dry on my commute to work.

What hair products having you been reaching for recently?
