If you were to ask me what I’m bad at, the first thing on the list would be blow-drying my hair. I do not know my way around a hair dryer. I have really thick hair that feels like it takes hours to blow-dry—my arms get tired, I get sweaty, and my hair never ends up looking good at all. For a long time, I would let my hair air-dry and add curls in or straighten from there, because it just felt easier to me.
For obvious reasons, I’ve been intrigued by the Dyson Airwrap ever since it was released, but I’d never tried it myself until last fall when I forgot all of my hair products on a trip, and my boyfriend’s mom loaned me hers. After trying it out, everyone kept asking me if I’d gotten my hair blown out. The Airwrap is pricey, but for the effect it gives, it’s 100% worth it. At a salon, an average blowout is around $50, so if you use your Airwrap 12 times, it will already make up for it.
