    I am not sure of my daughters hair type but her hair has not reverted. We are 3 days in and it still looks good. Now since it is cold here she keeps it in a bun.

    My dryer will be here today. It's my Christmas present. So I'm not supposed to open until Christmas. We'll see if I can hold out :look:

    They came by yesterday, but I was at the movies, so they left it at my leasing office rather than leaving it outside. I picked it up today and unboxed a few minutes ago. I am DCing now. I'm so excited.

    Sorry ladies, I've had this tab open and kept getting distracted.

    I
    am
    in
    love.

    I took it apart to see how much, if any hair was inside the filter and saw a small SSK ball ...so not bad especially considering I was half-hearted in my detangling. I never post pictures of myself anywhere and haven't in many years, but someone asked for a 2-3 day follow up, so I will give myself time to think and post then if I decide. Maybe do a better job of just getting my hair. Lol. It was very straight, but drier than I like my hair to be, so I will experiment with sticking to the low setting, 6, then maybe got back over it for 20-30secs on high in larger sections.

    As for my technique, I put my hair in 4 big sections, then broke up each of those sections in 2-3 sections. I sprayed my hair aloe/water, leave-in and then heat protectant., 30-45 seconds of the entire section on low inside the suction, then 45 sec - min on high, working it a bit for the last 10-15 seconds. My hair is fine 4a/b and I don't think I needed to do that, hence the dryness.

    All in all, it's true love and now I can't say if my favorite thing of 2018 is this or my air fryer. :lachen:

    Mine also arrived yesterday. My original plan was to straighten 12/21 (first day of winter)for Christmas....but now lol...I could pretend it's the 30 day pressure but I eagerly await using this new gadget.


    The real mental debate is if I will only do a test section, revair my whole head without straightening follow up, or full out straighten with flat iron after. Either way my photo contribution will occur this weekend.

    Got mine. Only had to attach one thing. The other part was already assembled. I was reading the directions and it said to not use oils or protectants on the hair as it will shorten the life of the dryer. I watched all the reviews on YouTube and only one dried her hair without it.

    That was nice only having to put the filter on and attach the house. I also like the big black bag/box.

    Yeah I'm not willing to blow dry without something on my hair. My hair will be super dry without a leave in and something on my ends.

    So, I have an appt tomorrow to get my hair blown out and styled. With someone new I’ve never gone to and he wasn’t recommended either, he’s just located in a convenient location for me. I’m really having to stop myself from doing my own hair tonight! If he jacks my hair up, at least I can come home and test out my new baby :)

    Wow I didn’t read the instructions. I watched a ton of Youtube videos and no one mentioned that. However, I did it without protectant on some sections of my hair. It didn’t feel dry at all probably because of the deep conditioner I used. However, I plan to regularly use some sort of heat protectant each time but it won’t be anything with heavy oils.

    That point concerned me also. On #9 of the faq it mentioned oils and silicone products may affect the long term performance of the device then in the quick start manual and other sections of multiple insert it said use your favorite heat protectant/leave in conditioner(I'm a nerd I always read the directions) before using. So I directly asked one of the chat consultants which was it since most heat protectants will contain silicones or oil(all mine do). She was really helpful. She assured me that silicones and oils are both fine as long as you steer clear from products that that dry hard or are tacky when applied. She said when using oil or silicone they er on the side of caution so that's why they mentioned it in the manual because of the impact of what happens when that is allowed to build up instead of more frequent cleaning of the filter to offset it. The company recommends if you use products that can cause buildup then you should clean the filter every 2-3 uses instead of every 5 uses and that will keep the performance optimal over time. She emphasized making sure product debris is completely removed from filter and screen and to clean more frequently if using heavier products so that debris isn't built up in the device while using.
