My Hairdryer is Too Heavy for Me and Other Embarrassments
Friday, December 21, 2007
Upon my return to America, I decided to splurge and get a fancy ionic hairdryer, the Conair 213X Infiniti (er, if $34.99 -– which is what I paid, though the price has jumped since then -- can count as a "splurge," but being that I've never spent more than $9.99 at CVS on a hairdryer in the past, it does in my book). In any case, I do love how it defrizzes and smoothes down my superfine, superthin hair – although that could be the effects of finally living in a place without 95 percent humidity – but after about 10 minutes of holding it over my head and moving it around at various angles, my arm starts hurting from the weight. Which is apparently 3.45 pounds. (But um, at least I'm not the only one who has complained about this? If that helps?) I know, I know, I'm a ridiculous weakling.
So, I'm thinking of exchanging it for something less… hefty. (And, in my defense, also with better power and heat options.) Does anyone have a fantastic hairdryer they swear by? Share with the group, please!
