HANAair Professional Hair Dryer Review

I don't do a lot of product reviews on this hair blog (mainly for lack of time.) But, I couldn't pass this one up! I've been using the same hair dryer for years and it's pretty much on it's last leg. A common occurrence (while using my old dryer) is to be about halfway done drying my hair when it overheats and shuts off! I just really don't have time for it most mornings and it's becoming a huge pain. (I won't mention which brand it is, but I think it cost around $15 at Walmart if that tells you anything.) So.... when I was contacted by Misikko to give this Professional Hana Hair Dryer a try, of course I said yes. I have used several Hair Straighteners from this same brand, so I know how great their products are.

This hair dryer is nothing like my old one. It's probably not even a fair comparison. But, so far I love it so much more.

I don't blow dry my daughter's hair very often, but when I do... she really doesn't like the heat. So the lowest heat setting is perfect for her. I (on the other hand) need some heat to help flatten and straighten my frizzy hair. :)

From the Misikko website: "This dryer has been Salon tested and Salon recommended since its inception. Inspired by Italian design, the combination of HANAair's strongest AC motor along with its tourmaline lined ceramic heater will dry your hair up to 60% faster maintaining natural shine while promoting healthy luxurious hair."

I wanted to test this dryer out to see if it really would dry my hair faster than my old store brand. My old blow dryer took just under 15 minutes to completely dry my hair.

I was almost shocked at how powerful this dryer was the first time I tried it. It really blows! :) And yes, it was much quicker- only taking 6 minutes!

The Pros:
  • Quick drying time
  • Long cord
  • Adjustable heat settings
  • Great quality
  • Ionic heat that is supposed to be healthier for your hair
  • The weight and feel of the dryer
The Cons:
  • Price. This hair dryer is on sale right now for $194.99. I'm a frugal person, so I would have a hard time paying that for a hair dryer. I'm thinking you would need to look at this as an investment in something that would outlast and outperform the cheaper products available and eventually pay for itself over time.
So overall, would I recommend this dryer? Definitely yes!
