BLOW


I don’t know about you, but when I think of healthy hair, I always think using the right shampoos and conditioners or making sure you have a ceramic flat iron and spray protectant. When I think of healthy hair, blow dryers are not really what come to mind.

I mean, it’s just air right? How can air affect the texture and health of your hair?

I definitely got shown the error of my thoughts when Missiko reached out and asked me to review their HANA blow dryer.

I was BLOWN.AWAY (pun intended).

Two things initially struck me when I started using the dryer…..First, the force and Second, the aerodynamics.

My old dryer was a little nasally and the air flow was not that strong…the HANA has a strong stream of steady hair and options for cold, warm or hot. 

The second thing I loved was that the snout of the dryer is thinner and much more maneuverable to get the brush up and under your hair to lift away and add volume. And what girl doesn’t like volume?!

I guess because I have wild-child wavy hair, I never believed that a blow dryer could have as much difference as my arsenal of taming products. But I was definitely wrong! My hair was not stick-straight after blow drying but I noticed definite less frizz and fluff in general. And over the past week since I’ve been using it, it looks healthier and shinier!

I would definitely recommend this dryer (or any of the HANA line really - they also sell chi straigtners holla!) – I’m now a believer that a hair dryer is one of those things you should “invest in.”

If you want to treat your hairs to a little 2012 kindness, HANA is offering a 10% discount to Run With Me readers off your purchase. Just enter Hana10 at checkout!

Oops and I almost forgot the packaging….this dryer doesn’t just come in a box….it comes packaged with a mountain full of goodies! It’s seriously like a celeb swag bag!

If I ever buy a blow dryer, I will give this a shot. I just can't bring myself to get up extra early to blow dry my hair before work (we're talking like 4:40), not to mention I'm sure it would wake up my hubby. and we DON'T need a crabby hubby. :)

I've seen a lot of bloggies doing reviews of HANA products and since I have longgggg hair, I've been thinking about possibly purchasing this blow drier because it takes forever to dry my hair!! You may have just convinced me to buy one!

I got one too and I LOVE it! It has been a lifesaver with my new short hair. I had a really nice dryer before this one, but as long as I can afford it, I'll have one just like this!

Kate said...

So I was contacted by Brian also -- I posted my review on the HANA flat iron yesterday. Love it and love blogging! Looks like we follow all the same blogs and have the same "friends" yet just found your blog - weird. I was just working for a company in Atlata and spent so much time there! Happy to learn more about you newest friend!!

Lindsey said...

If I didn't just get a Chi Blowdryer for Christmas (which I love) then I'd totally say gimme this. Hana is sending me a flat iron, though. I'm pumped to try it out!
