Review: HANA Air Premiere Hair Dryer

I'm having a really good hair day today.

My hair is soft, bouncy, and glistens in the sun. I'm not gonna lie. I should be in a shampoo commercial right now. I look hot.

I have a confession to make though: the reason my hair looks so good right now is because of a product I was sent to review.

When Misikko sent me a blow dryer to review this week, I was ecstatic. I already own one of the company's gorgeous pink flat irons. It has made me quite popular among my best friend and my mom, who borrow it all the time.

I was thrilled to discover the HANA Air Premiere Hair Dryer has the exact same magic.



That's a lot coming from me. My mother was a hair stylist for several years, so I have used my fair share of expensive salon blow dryers.

This one is definitely different.

My thick Indian hair usually takes about twenty minutes or more to blow dry. With the HANA Air Premiere Hair Dryer, it took TEN MINUTES. I wanted to cry with joy. Do you know how frustrating it is to hold a blow dryer to your head for half an hour, when you're running late to a job interview?! This dryer is the ultimate time-saver.

Plus, it was quiet! Every single fancy schmancy blow dryer my mom lends me sounds like I'm drying my hair in an airport. With the HANA Air dryer, I don't have to worry about waking up my boyfriend in the early hours of the morning anymore.

Plus, the dryer comes with a nifty little concentrator device which allows you to dry sections of your hair, one at a time. This will be very useful when styling, trust me.

Oh, and I accidentally discovered the blow dryer is very durable. Good news for me, since I'm not the most graceful girl in the world. Haha.

When researching the HANA Air Premiere Hair Dryer afterwards, I was surprised to discover some bonuses I didn't even know existed when I used it.

For instance, the Italian-inspired design includes ion technology, which conditions hair and reduces static electricity. (Lord knows I need that).

It also has low EMF, meaning it is environmentally friendly for a blow dryer. Not bad, huh?

Keep in mind, the blow dryer is not cheap. But for a salon hair tool, it is actually moderately priced. As a hair stylist, my mom used blow dryers ranging from $400 to $100. This product fits nicely in the middle.

For me, a good hair dryer is worth the money. I'm very serious.

I take pride in my long, shiny locks. I am obsessed with keeping my hair healthy, because I want it to remain beautiful when I'm a little old grandmother.

Cheap drugstore hair dryers do not cut it for me. They are not powerful enough and they make my hair feel like straw afterwards. I don't even want to think about the heat damage they have caused my precious locks. It makes me shudder.

The HANA Air Premiere Hair Dryer is worth it. Plus, it's on sale right now!

Check out the Misikko site if you're on the market for a fabulous flat iron as well. You won't be disappointed!

Isn't it great when you finally find the perfect product? Sounds like you did here.

If I'm ever at the point where I'm not just toweling off my hair in the morning, I'll definitely check this out. In the meantime, I can think of a few people who probably need this as a gift...

I have been looking for a really good dryer for a while now. I had a decent one, but it died. Now I have a $30 Conair Blackbird dryer because I am tired of paying a shit ton for dryers that I always kill with my thick hair.
I might need to give this one a shot.

"Romeo and Juliet"

A love-struck Romeo sings the streets a serenade
Laying everybody low with a love song that he made.
Finds a streetlight, steps out of the shade
Says something like, "You and me babe, how about it?"

Juliet says, "Hey, it's Romeo, you nearly gave me a heart attack!"
He's underneath the window, she's singing, "Hey la, my boyfriend's back.
You shouldn't come around here singing up to people like that...
Anyway, what you gonna do about it?"
Juliet, the dice was loaded from the start
And I bet when you exploded into my heart
And I forget I forget the movie song.
When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong, Juliet?

...thanks.

I bought this dryer recently and found it to be okay but not amazing. Many reviews I read were from girls with pretty straight or wavy hair and as a curly haired girl I didn't find that it gave me results that were much better than my generic hair dryer. Also, the buttons are a pain and all the goodies I've seen in all the reviews were misleading as I received mostly junk. Still got frizz that I had to flatiron away. Overall, not worth shelling out the money. As a side note, it's not for lack of skill as I'm very good with a blowdryer. FYI I'm putting this comment on as many reviews as I can for all the other curly haired ladies who need to hear how it works on actual curly hair (waves don't count as curls!)

This is definitely one of the better hair dryers. Hana's hair products are usually top notch. However, I wouldn't use it everyday to prevent damage to my hair.
