Fewer split ends and Super Silky Hair! :-D
on May 26, 2012
My mom got me a Conair hair dryer when I was in junior high. That dryer lasted over 15 years until it started to fall apart. I decided to get a nice hair dryer that will hopefully last another 15 plus years. So I did some research and decided to buy the NuMe.
This hair dryer is well built and relatively quiet. The pink zebra pattern is fun. I was concerned when I first used it because the highest temperature setting was no where near as hot as my ancient Conair dryer, but even with a lower "high heat" setting, the NuMe dryer dries my hair twice as fast as my ancient Conair. Must be the infared heat technology it uses! The cool setting is great to lock in shine & set my hair style.
I heard that hair dryers with the negative ion technology made hair look great--and boy does it! My hair is shiner, healthier, and fewer frizziness/fly-aways. I'm in Texas, surrounded by dry heat, so my hair used to be so dry and I had a ton of split ends. I can chalk all that dryness & split ends to the ancient Conair--I've had fewer split ends since I've started using the NuMe and my hair is so silky and shiny--no dry frizziness. I used the Conair about 3 times a week, on the medium setting, and would have split ends within two weeks. I've been using the NuMe for over a month now, 4 to 5 times a week, on the high heat setting, and NO new split ends! I also find that since the NuMe dryer makes my hair less frizzy and gives me fewer split ends, I am putting less product in my hair! Yay!
I've read some complaints regarding the heavy weight of the hair dryer. It dries hair really quickly--so I have not noticed a "heavy weight" problem with this dryer. I have really long, thick hair--my old dryer took over 10 minutes to get my hair about 80% dry. NuMe dryer can get my hair 100% dry within 6 minutes. So since I'm not holding the dryer for a super long time, I don't think the dryer weight is too heavy--feels light to me! Honestly, the weight seemed comparable to most hair dryers that I've seen/tried so I don't know what people are complaining about there.
I also saw some complaints about the attachments that come with the hair dryer stating that the dryer comes with two identical attachments. Actually, the attachments are two different sizes--a larger one and a smaller one to help concentrate airflow to dry hair faster. Since I have longer, thicker hair, and use a big ceramic brush to dry/straighten my hair, I use the larger attachment to concentrate the air flow for a faster dry time. If I was using a smaller brush, or taking smaller sections of hair, I would probably use the smaller one.
This dryer is a bit pricey, but well worth the money in my opinion. It's a pretty solid dryer that should last me a long, long time. I have been getting so many compliments on my hair. Fewer split ends, less frizziness, more shine, more silk, and more beautiful healthy hair! Best purchase I've made in a while by far!
