One of my major Pigeons of Discontent is how long it takes me to blowdry my hair. Seriously. I hate blowdrying my hair. It takes forever and I have to stop and start while I chase Kate around, prying the TV remote from her hands, answer her 3,975 demands for water/snack/diaper change.
I’ve gone through numerous drug store blowdryers than last a couple months before they died slow deaths. They’re loud, take over 20 minutes to get my hair dry, fall apart, and frizz out my ends. Tired of hearing me swear up a storm each morning, Dan suggested maybe I need to ask Santa for a new blowdryer for Christmas. Maybe even something high end that would actually dry my hair.
He didn’t need to ask me twice. I got to researching right away and soon learned more about the mechanics of blowdryers than I know about algebra. After reading upteen reviews, I settled on the Elchim 5000 Da Vinci Ionic Hair Dryer.
Holy moly. This blowdryer is crazy wonderful. Three words: HURRICANE FORCE WINDS. Yes, hurricane force winds. This thing generates an unreal about of…blowing power.
Exhibit A: With my old blowdryers, it took between 20 and 30 minutes to get my dripping wet hair dry. With the Elchim Da Vinci (isn’t it’s name awesome?!), it takes between 7 to 10 minutes. Yes. You read that right. A mere 7 to 10 minutes to go from soaking wet, straight out of the shower to 100% dry. It’s a miracle.
Exhibit B: No frizz. All my drug store variety hair dryers burnt my hair to a nice crispness. The Da Vinci leaves my hair feeling silky smooth. Whoa, I am sounding just like a comercial.
I would classify my hair as thick, medium length, with a tendency towards an ugly, poufy wave look when left alone. The Da Vinci solves all my hair gripes, and now I actually look forward to blowdrying my hair. In my opinion, it’s worth every penny (it retails for about $100) given its effectiveness.
You’re probably wondering what you should do with all your extra time not spent blowdrying your hair. Well maybe you’d have time to style your hair with the Caruso steam rollers…more on those later.
