My hairdryer died about a month ago.
I wish I could tell you that it lasted for years, we had fond memories together, and I will miss its presence in my hand dearly. But I can't. This particular hairdryer was only seven months old (and expensive!) and when it died, I was extremely angry. I paid good money for something that should have worked longer than the lifespan of a fish.
When it stopped working, I limped along with a very old, very inexpensive hairdryer that barely got the job done. When it was taking almost a half an hour to dry my hair, I decided enough was enough and started looking for a better one. I came across the Infiniti Pro by Conair on a few websites and almost all the reviews were positive. Pros listed were less frizz, shorter drying time, healthier-looking hair, etc. and I can happily vouch for these claim. I've had it for about a week or so now and I am astonished at how quickly it dries my hair.
Because of the airflow intensity (which can be changed from high to low) and the heat settings (the standard cool, warm, and hot with an additional cool-shot button) my hair-drying time was cut about twenty minutes short. What took me thirty minutes before now only takes me ten minutes -- and my hair is completely dry.
I'm also impressed with how shiny my hair is when I dry it with this hairdryer. I have highlights and curly hair, which means my hair is usually dry and damaged at any given time and blow-drying usually makes it worse. Not the case here. I barely have to go over my hair with the flat-iron because it is so straight after using this hairdryer. If anything, I just have to go over my ends to get rid of the frayed look but even that isn't as bad as it used to be with other hairdryers.
My one complaint with this hairdryer is that I can't use it when I want to wear my hair curly. The dryer does come with a diffuser attachment (there is a concentrator attachment included as well) in case you want a wavy/curly style. However, even set on low, the air pressure is too much for my hair and the curls get all blown out. What I'm left with is a half-straight, half-wavy mess that's frizzy and unmanageable. I love this dryer for when I want to straighten my hair but when I want to wear it curly, nothing beats my old $14 pink Revlon dryer.
I've tried a lot of hairdryers in my day and if one works well for straightening, it's no good when it comes to styling it curly and vice-versa. I'm giving this product 4 stars instead of five only because it made my hair extremely frizzy when I tried to keep it curly. However, the straightening capability, speed, and air pressure is unparalleled in comparison to any other hairdryer I've tried.
And for only $25 at Wal-Mart and $19.99 at Costco, it's a steal that won't break the bank!
