Be Safe: Don't Blow-Dry With Damaged Goods

Be Safe: Don't Blow-Dry With Damaged Goods

Recently, I read an article that featured a tip on making your own hair diffuser at home. All you need is a sock and a rubber band, and you're good to go. Upon mentioning this tidbit to my co-worker, she kindly brought me back down to earth. Fire hazard, much? Then earlier today, I came across this article which, sadly, describes the passing of a Pakistani diplomat, who was electrocuted by a damaged hair dryer after bathing.

This brings me to my point: Seriously, if your blow-dryer has a frayed cord, is puffing out abnormal emissions, and/or makes any kind of rattling noise, don't be cheap. Replace it or live with air-dried hair. It might be common sense, but why put yourself at risk in the name of beauty?

I just replaced my old hair dryer that I had for like 10 years. All the sudden one morning it shot out sparks, no prior warnings of impending fire whatsoever! I immediately unplugged it and replaced it that day! I can only imagine what would have happened had my hair been dry.

I'd take this advice with any electrical product, but it'll be a while before I give up my hair dryer. It looks like it came out of a Scifi movie, the inner geek loves it.
