I've been meaning to get a really powerful hairdryer for ages, but hadn't really come across one that had everything I was looking for until I heard about this beauty. First things first, it's not a cheap hairdryer at £99, so it's a considered purchase, but it's exactly what I wanted and I'm expecting it to last me a long time as it's a top quality brand.
The main attraction for me is how powerful the hairdryer is. I can't stand hairdryers that don't seem to have enough puff! My old one was a cheapie £20 job, and it took a long time to dry my hair, so the difference when I first used this blew me away - literally! If you've got a naff hairdryer at the moment you'll really notice the difference in power when you first use this. It's 2,100 watts, so really powerful, but it's not overly loud and it doesn't feel really hot if that makes any sense. Even when I have it on the highest heat setting, it doesn't scorch my ears like my old one. I can't really explain why that is, but I'm sure it's not my imagination!
I'm lazy, and rubbish at blowdrying, so I don't usually use the attachments, but it comes with two concentrator nozzles - one wider than the other - for more precision styling if you know what you're doing with a round brush and all that complicated business. I'm rubbish when it comes to styling my hair, but have been getting lovely smooth results using no nozzles, my paddle brush and the high heat and speed settings.
The dryer comes with "ionic technology" built in which I understand to mean it helps your hair dry to a sleeker and shinier finish. I had an "ionic" product a few years ago, but you had to constantly push a button for when you wanted the effects to come on, so naturally I got fed up of doing that and didn't bother - with the ghd air this effect is automatic and constant, so it's always on.
Other nifty features include a cool shot, which gives a blast of proper cold air to set your finished style, and it's got a really long swivelly cord, so no annoying tangled wires. It's also quite lightweight, so I don't get arm ache drying my hair.
Together with my ghd straighteners I feel like I've now got the dream team kit, and I can get pretty good results despite being pretty clumsy when it comes to styling my hair!
