Freezing Hair

I've gone through three years of college without owning a hair dryer.  My roommates have always had them but I hated drying my hair because it was so time consuming and it gets just so hot - not to mention hair dryers consume a ton of energy.

I was at Target a few months ago looking for a lamp, and ended up with a hair dryer.  I hadn't planned on buying it, but I saw the "Eco" mode setting on this hair dryer, which promised to use less energy than a regular dryer and I was intrigued.  It has three add ons - a diffuser, a concentrator, and a beachwaver (shown in the above picture).

I have to say that I think all the different attachments will work better for someone who doesn't have naturally stick-straight hair.  I'm Asian, and my hair air dries straight - I can't even curl my hair without it becoming straight within a few hours, so most of the attachments left me with hair that virtually looked the same as if I had just dried it by hand.  I was, however, pleasantly surprised by the beachwaver, which left my hair tousled for the whole night.


  1. Cool I didnt know hair dryers had an eco mode!

  2. Wow, I love the waves made by this blowdryer. And the fact that it's more eco-friendly? Just the cherry on the sundae.

    I am definitely going to follow your blog! xx


  3. I usually shower at night and let my hair air dry, as I like to go to bed clean. I love how my hair looks when it air dries, and actually get frustrated when I'm getting ready for an outing and need to use a hairdrier, because I don't like how my hair turns out... kinda backwards!

  4. @jet-setting divas - most of them don't, and the eco-modes on this dryer work JUST as well as the regular modes

    @simone - the waves were awesome! i was SO SO SO surprised that my hair stayed wavy but it did! (and half the time - drying and waving!)

    @meri - so do i actually... but when i go out when it's cold it's definitely a must do
