A while back I posted about my Lovebox festival experience with Panasonic styling, which involved a trip to a gorgeous hair salon in Shoreditch to have our hair styled. All of this was in aid of the launch of the new Panasonic Nanoe EH-NA65-K895* hairdryer which I have been trying out since and which I am finally bringing you my thoughts on.
Now first of all it has to be said, I was a little bit confused when I got the initial email. Panasonic releasing a hairdryer? It wasn't a product I would have associated with them. When I did a bit more research though, it turned out that there were a whole range of Panasonic hairdryers already, just not in the UK, and they're pretty damn popular.
So what is Panasonic Nanoe technology? According to the Asian Panasonic website nanoes are nano-sized ion particles coated with water particles that supplement the hair and scalp with additional moisture. That's the science-y bit behind it anyway, but all I was really interested in was how it made my hair feel.
In general it has to be said, I'm not one for hairdryers. I usually find it much easier to sit around and let my hair dry or even *gasp* sleep with it still damp. This hairdryer though? Its a good'un. Now I find myself towel drying my hair to get rid of excess water before using the quick-dry nozzle on full blast which alternates strong and soft currents and takes about ten minutes in total to get my hair dry. The end result is super shiny and soft hair that is far smoother looking than my usual air dried do.
There are three heat and speed settings on the hairdryer and added features include a cold blast button which is great for setting your hair (or for blasting your face when its a super hot day) and two extra nozzles: a diffuser and a condenser which are great for people with curly hair or hair that's prone to frizziness.
Now that I've finished gushing about this product whilst stroking my soft and shiny hair I have to point out, this is not a cheap hairdryer. Its £99.99 on the Boots website which makes it one of the most expensive ones available. However having used it for the last month or so, if I lost this one tomorrow I would definitely repurchase it because its just that good. Its so noticeably superior to my old cheap as chips hairdryer that I could only be bothered to drag out of my drawer on special occasions. If you're looking for something that improves the condition of your hair in general, this really is a good investment for you.
