I never really thought about my hair dryer making my hair feel like straw. That is, until I decided to buy a new one. I always figured that it was the blonde making my hair dry. (It helps..) My hair guru suggested that I buy a higher end hair dryer since I've tried some really good deep conditioners. She suggested I try the CHI.
I went to Bed Bath & Beyond to check out their supply (hello 20% off coupons that never expire). Luckily they had some CHIs! This is the one I bought.
CHI Air Pro Expert Ceramic Hair Dryer
This sounds crazy, but I went out and bought it at lunch. It was misty outside so I ran home to test out my new dryer. YES, I am that girl. Since my hair was mostly dry, I didn't really notice a difference. What I did notice was the noise it was making. It was SO much quieter than my other dryer! It literally sounded like it wasn't going to screw my hair up. I would compare it to driving a 2001 car and then test driving a 2012 car. Seriously. I was so excited I called S and turned both dryers on so he could hear them.
Here is a pic of my hair after only blowing it dry with the CHI.

I think the pictures speak for themselves. RUN get a better hair dryer!!! Yes it is more money, but it will actually save you money in the long run. Especially if you have damaged hair!
Unfortunately this is not a product endorsement, just my opinion. If CHI wants to SEND ME A FREE one, I'd be more than happy to accept! ;)
