The Best Tool For Straightening The Back Of Your Hair
I have naturally wavy/curly (2B/3A) hair, which I occasionally straighten. However, I find it next to impossible to straighten the back of my hair. This Conair dryer was recommended to me by a friend with super curly, long, middle eastern hair, who has been using it for years and adores it. She uses it to straighten her hair all over (about 20 minutes), followed by a flat iron for touch-ups (about 5 minutes). Unlike other dryers with brush attachments, which tend to be poorly rated due to low wattage and insufficient air flow, I found this one to be as powerful as my regular hair dryer (X5), with hot heat and very strong air flow. When I first tried it all over very wet hair, however, it took a while to dry and did need a flat iron for added polish. But then I discovered a better way to use it. I now use my regular hair dryer on high to rough dry my hair 80% (using just my fingers), and then smooth the top and sides with a round brush (using the nozzle attachment, on low). Then I finish the back section using this Conair dryer with the brush attachment. On high, the dryer gets VERY hot, so I have to spray each section (6 total) with flat iron spray before using the dryer on it, and need to work quickly, to avoid burning my hair. In the end, the back doesn't look quite as polished as the front, but it's still very nice plus super quick (only 5 minutes) and MUCH easier than trying to use two tools in the back at once. The only drawback: it's noisy, and heavier than my X5, but for a cheap dryer that's to be expected.
