Ol' Reliable Has Died....

....and I'm sad.

The other day I was doing something completely unrelated to hair. I was getting ready to go into lab and I needed to dry my make-up brushes. So, I pulled out my blow dryer and plugged it in. I hit the button to turn it on and.....nothing happened. I reset the darn thing and nothing happened. MY FREAKIN' BLOW DRYER IS DEAD!

Granted, it was a $40 something blow dryer that I got from Sally's at the start of my hair journey (back in '08) and maybe it is time to get a new one but there is just so much to think about now. Now that I'm knee deep in this hair care game I can't just roll up into Wal-Mart and just grab one.

This is also a time sensitive issue. I plan to take these twist out sometime next month (mid-month maybe?) and there is no way, absolutely NO WAY that I will let my 19/20 weeks post hair air dry (I learned the hard way that at that point my hair says a big 'eff you' to air drying). I also want to be able to wash, DC, and dry my hair before I get cornrows put in. So between now and June I have to find a quality blow dryer.

So far, I'm looking at the Sedu blow dryer because I absolutely adore the flat iron and I know it will have what I'm looking for in a dryer (is is ionic? is it tourmaline? is it both?) but price is a major issue.

:sigh: This may take more work than I thought. Any suggestions ladies?


  1. I wish I could recommend something based on personal experience, but I no longer use hand held blow dryers. I can recommend hair dryers that I have heard a lot about: The T3, FHI, and the Chi. They are on overstock for a decent price. Good luck and please let us know what you decide.

  2. Hey, I really like your blog so I linked you to my blog.

  3. @AgeinATL Thanks for the suggestions! I will definitely let you guys know what I decide!

    @Prissy Mum Thanks! :)

  4. I have a Sedu blow dryer I bought about 2 years ago. It was pretty expensive to me because I was used to buying the cheapies from Target. However, the purchase was soo worth it... I love it. Great blog btw.

  5. @Sherae Thanks for the recommendation for the Sedu blow dryer and thank you for reading my blog! :)
