I’ve had the same hairdryer forever without feeling any need for a few one. I mean, it dries my hair – that’s all I need, right? So I was curious to see if the highly-hyped ghd AIR would change my mind.
(Side note: I discovered that ghd stands for “Good Hair Day” while writing this review. Point and laugh at the slow one.)
* Separate temperature and fan speed settings – I never knew I needed these til now, but it makes perfect sense. Sometimes the temperature is perfect but the air is getting a bit too painfully scalpy, sometimes you want to dry your hair but you don’t want it blowing all over the shop, and sometimes you just want it to dry ASAP, scalp be damned.
These are on the back of the handle and are pretty firm, so it’s hard to accidentally switch settings, but it also means they take a bit of effort to switch one-handed (though it’s not really something you’d need to play around with often unless you’re a hairdrying expert).
