I have a ton of hair, so blow-drying it is an exhausting task. I love the way my locks look after I give them a proper blowout, but that can often take over an hour for me. My mom also has a full head of hair, so when she recommended a blow dryer that totally changed her styling routine, I had to try it. Her hairstylist used the Xtava Double Shine Professional Hair Dryer on her, and she was shocked by the short amount of time it took to get her looking like her best self. I bought one for myself on Amazon and decided to put it to the test.
When it arrived, I was in shock. It came in the most beautiful black and gold box — it felt like I was receiving a gift. The presentation pulled me in enough to give it a try ASAP. Beyond its pretty exterior, using the hair dryer was life-changing. Instead of my usual hour-long routine, it only took me about 20 minutes to get my hair completely dry. I imagine for people with less hair than me, it might take 10 minutes or less. The 1800-watt blow dryer has a powerful salon-grade AC motor that you won't find in other options this affordable. And not only does it have multiple heat levels, but it also has two ion levels — these levels produce negative ions that make H2O molecules get smaller and disappear quickly.
This hair dryer also comes with a diffuser attachment that works well for curly hair. Overall, I was impressed with this device. I have even convinced some friends and coworkers to buy it for themselves. On top of the fast drying time, it also makes my hair insanely shiny and frizz-free. There isn't any undesirable fuzziness that some dryers often leave behind. If you're in the market for a new blow dryer, I am telling you, this is the one you need. It's a great price for how effective it is. Keep reading to see exactly where to buy this pick.
