Electrical appliances

I never see the use in lugging a Hairdryer to a hot climate. 

You’ve just freshened up from the shower and then you blast your scalp and neck with hot air, your head is automatically going to sweat again causing frizz, it’s pretty much a losing battle!
My tip would be to let your hair air dry and then use a heated appliance like:

•Ghd wanderlust that is designed for holidays, it’s lightweight for travel and has beautiful tropical designs and a heat bag for storage… €200 €25 off at the moment

•DAFNI go this wonderous straightening hair brush is the perfect portable hair-styling brush for travel. Featuring the same high quality materials and advanced technologies of the DAFNI™ you love, the go makes it even easier to take it with you anywhere. The added thermal cover and thermal bag simplify packing your brush immediately after use. €115

•Babyliss Diamond Dual Big Hair Hot Air Styler Rotating hot air styler with interchangeable brush heads. Soft bristles combined with super ionic system and Diamond infused ceramic barrel give instant frizz-control for visibly smoother hair with healthy shine. Available from independent retailers nationwide

•Remington Airplates hair straightener has a unique suspended plate system that moves freely with your hair, providing maximum contact from root to tip. Each plate is coated in black titanium ceramic to ensure a smoother glide and smoother results, up to 75 per cent smoother than a standard straightener. Available from independent retailers nationwide €99

Here’s some pics from the mornings fun:


  1. Hi Tori,
    Do any of these electrical products abroad given the voltage difference? I’ve blown fuses in my adapter a few times when trying to use my hair dryer abroad.

    • Hi Amanda, they all have universal voltage so are perfect for travel. Maybe your dryer doesn’t. Some appliances are weaker when used abroad but all these should be fine on the continent. You will have to check if you’re going to the states though.
      Hope this helps


  2. The hair care is important and the electrical devices for hairs now days growing it means they offering a healthy hair in time savvy manner. Also love to watch the information shared here because I always love to find some new things to keep my hair healthy.
