I finally got one of those tourmaline hair dryers I've been meaning to try. I'd read about them in a magazine, and again in a blog post (swishy?).
The claims are: faster drying, shiny hair -- I got the one with optional ion technology for less frizz (optional because maybe some days you want a little frizz). I'm a skeptic, but as much as my kids hate getting their hair dried, I was willing to gamble twenty-four bucks for the chance to shave a couple of seconds off of the drying time.
I don't know about faster time, but the shine thing is for real -- I don't get it. My shopping buddy was laughing at me and what a sucker I was for buying a blow dryer when I already have one. Well, I tried it last night and thought my hair did indeed look a bit shinier and perhaps a bit darker? I couldn't tell you if it dried any faster -- maybe, but nothing significant.
I forgot all about my fast dried, shiny, frizz free hair until this morning when I passed a mirror and I was definitely having a good hair day -- straight out of bed and carried over from last night. My husband thought I must have gotten a new shampoo with the millions I just spent at Origins --
but, "no honey, same old Pantene
-- new rock in my blow dryer."
I called my friend at 7:10 this morning to tell her about my shiny hair. She wants me to dry it again, only do each side of my head with the different dryers and send the pictures.
...Maybe I will.
Last comment: Did you know you can buy spray on shine for your hair? You can, and I do (love it!). What's going to happen when I spray the shine on my already shiny hair? I think shepherds will come and bring me gifts, that's what I think is going to happen.
