    i have one of these but i'm not sure how good it works, i tried to use it a couple of times but it takes a long time for the hair to dry and my problem is that i live in a very small apt with my boyfriend and i don't have enough privacy to really use it :(
    2b (a fine 'n porous wavy)...and finally growing out :-)

    Wash: Deva Low-poo
    Condish and leave in: OneC or Suave Coconut

    Styler: Angell or the Deva foam, sometimes KKKC

    Etc: Set It Free as a refresher

    Protien: Looking for one

    I love hairspray...don't judge

    Dryers like this were common when I was a teenager back in the 1960s, before blow dryers had been invented. When you told someone you couldn't go out because you had to wash your hair, it was a true excuse!

    I have something similar but I only use it for heat when doing DTs. Believe me my husband gets a kick out of it every single time!!

    I bought one of these a few years ago from Ouidad. Tried it a few times and it took forever to dry; I agree it might be good for a deep treatment for some heat, but it would take hours to dry my shoulder length hair. If I tried to put it on a higher heat setting it would shut off my hairdryer due to overheating.

    I used to have one of those, years ago. It looked completely rediculous on. I would not work with say I style my hair now, but I used to just wear my hair in a wavy-ish style, so I would put mousse or gel in it, then put it in a loose bun, and then put the dryer thing on my head while I did my makeup. It worked okay to get my hair partially dry. But now I play up my ringlets as much as possible, so I like a regular diffuser. But thats a good idea about a deep treatment...maybe I will pull it out for my next one.
