Meet Your New Favorite Blow-Dryer

I have a confession: I’ve been cutting corners when it comes to my blow-dryer. After all, it’s just hot air—it doesn’t really matter whether my blow-dryer costs $15 or $300, right? Well, no sooner did I find out that the quality of the blow-dryer you use does matter than when one was placed on my desk.

The long-time go-to brand for those who are in the market for flat and curling irons, ghd is adding its first ever blow-dryer to its roster of luxurious hair styling tools.

The ghd air ($225) is a salon-strength blow-dryer that has a powerful professional motor and advanced ionic technology. These features lock in moisture to help your hair look shinier and feel softer. It also has three different heat settings as well as a cool shot and works at two speeds. Plus, it comes with two concentrator nozzles and is compatible with other diffusers.

Despite my research, I have to admit that I was still skeptical that a fancy blow-dryer would make a difference in my hair. Boy, was I wrong. I immediately noticed that the ghd air dries my hair faster than my other dryer. It also makes my hair look less frizzy when I use it with my round brush, so I don’t need to go over it with a flat iron as much after. That means less styling time, which is a huge selling point for me.

All-in-all, I can now dry my hair faster and smoother. And I am 100 percent convinced that the blow-dryer you use does matter. In my opinion, this product is a must-buy—I can’t imagine my life without it. Now, I just need to figure out what to do with my old one…
