Battle of the Blow Dryers

I have been using my trusty Conair blow dryer for YEARS. 9 years to be exact. At the time I just wanted something not too expensive and that would get the job done. I think I paid $20 for it at Walmart lol. When I went back to the gym, I had to shower and get ready for work there because my sessions are in early morning before work. I just so happened to complain to my sister that I may have to look for a second hair dryer because my current one is a bit of a pain because of the cord and because I leave the dryer in my gym bag, I’m a bit lazy to keep lugging it out on the weekends and the days I don’t go to the gym.
She was kind enough to loan me hers to use as she had bought a compact dryer with retractable cord for traveling purposes.

The day came when I got a text from sister requesting her hair dryer back because she was going on vacation to Hawaii for a week. And so I began my search for a replacement. I’m partial to Conair, only because I’ve used it for years and it’s always worked well for me.
The compact dryer I borrowed from my sister is also a Conair from their Infiniti line. I tried looking for the same one (cuz my OCD lol) but unfortunately my sister had purchased it a few years back and it was no longer part of their product line. So I did a little research on the internet and started testing some out.

Conair

This green Infiniti-Pro is actually the second dryer I bought and tested. The first one I tried out was this one. When I took it out of the box it looked and felt cheap. I also didn’t think it dried my hair any faster than my old one… and time was of the essence.
The green Infiniti-Pro worked really well. The motor wasn’t very loud and the size was perfect. It also dried my hair very quickly… possibly TOO quickly because it also turned my hair into a tangled mess. I used it a couple times and same result so I ended up picking up another one to try out as well. The other thing that was missing was a tractable cord. I really liked that option on the dryer I had borrowed from my sister and what really drove me to find a new compact dryer for the gym.

This blue one is not part of the Infinti line. It’s slightly bigger and a touch heavier than the green one and the motor is also a bit louder. It doesn’t dry as quick as the green one but still did a better job than my old one. The best part is that my hair didn’t look like a rat’s nest after.

Here’s a pic of the blue one out of box.

And a pic for comparison.

I ended up returning the green one because the con’s outweighed the pro’s. The only thing about the blue dryer that annoys me from time-to-time is that the cord doesn’t retract all the way sometimes so I would have to pull on it and press the retract button a couple times before it goes all the way in.

What kind of hair dryers do you use and how do you like it?

Until next time!
