The Best Blowdryer

I have always had a love/hate relationship with my hair. I won’t lie, I do love the color – it seems to get naturally highlighted in the summer, and I’m glad I don’t have to spend time/money getting it colored. However, it is incredibly thick, and I have a lot of individual strands of hair. It may not look like it, but I have never gotten my hair done without a stylist commenting on how much of my hair there is. It’s also oily, like my face, to the point where I try to wash every day, but can stretch it to two days with ample dry shampoo.

With daily washing comes daily blowdrying. I leave blow drying my hair as the very final step in my morning routine in the hopes that it will air dry just a little bit more. Air drying it completely isn’t an option for me – it gets puffy and frizzy and it is not good. So with all this heat styling, I rely on a heavy duty blow dryer to get maximum drying with minimum hair damage.
I truly believe that having a good blow dryer makes a huge difference in the appearance and health of your hair – and I’m reminded of this when my blow dryer finally breaks and I have to use a backup one for a few days. 
The blow dryer I rely on is the T3 Featherweight. Mine have each lasted about 5 years, which is amazing for something that I use almost every day. Because I have limited arm strength and mobility, I can’t really style my hair while I dry it – I just point the blowdryer at my hair and go (aka “rough drying”). The Featherweight is 1), light enough for me to hold, 2), doesn’t create too many knots in my hair after drying, and 3) leaves my hair feeling smooth even though I hold the dryer an inch away from my hair (don’t judge). I sing the praises of the T3 to anyone who asks about my hair. It is not a cheap blow dryer, but I completely think it’s worth it.

It’s also currently on sale as part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale for a few more days. This is an amazing deal and if you are at all thinking about buying it, you should do it now – I can honestly say I don’t ever think I’ve seen this blow dryer on sale before!
