One of my biggest irritations when I’m doing my hair is CORDS. They cause me to knock over the cans of product sitting on the counter, they get tangled up underneath my sink, and they basically drive me crazy. Needless to say, when I spotted this hair dryer that includes a built-in cord keeper, I was immediately intrigued.
The Conair You Reel Styler (not sure why it’s called a styler instead of a hair dryer?) rocks the awesomeness of a retractable cord. You can pull the power cord out as far as you need, then with the press of a button, it zips right back inside. LOVE this feature!
The color is a very pretty electric blue. I wish there were more color options available, but I’m diggin’ the blue. A must for any hair dryer is that it utilized Tourmaline Ceramic technology, which is frizz fighting and less damaging to the hair. It also created a natural shine that you wouldn’t get with a non-tourmaline ceramic dryer. It has the typical hair dryer settings : High/Low as well as Hot/Warm/Cool. It’s a great hair dryer for travel because it’s a big smaller than average, the handle folds up, the cord retracts and it’s dual voltage.
There are a couple things I don’t like about the Conair You Reel. For one, the cool air doesn’t get very cool. Even when the cool air button is pressed, the air remains quite warm. The second thing that bothers me is when I’m switching from Hot to Warm, the dryer emits a very funny ‘electrical’ type smell. It only lasts for a few seconds, but still, it’s unpleasant.
The Conair You Reel 1875 Watt Tourmaline Ceramic 2-in-1 Styler is available nationwide at mass market and drug store retailers, as well as at www.conair.com for an average price of $34.99.
