My Mermade Hair Dryer Review.
OK cool, but is this pink hair dryer more than just a pretty face?
I put away my ghd Helios hairdryer Black and Parlux Supercompact Ionic & Ceramic 3500 Hairdryer for the Mermade Hair Dryer. I've been using it twice a week for the past two weeks and I've got to say... it's pretty good.
You can check out the hair dryer in use in my quick video tutorial below!
Now, let's talk about the pros and cons of this hair dryer.
The Mermade Hair Dryer is really light (much lighter than my ghd and Parlux) and easy to use.
On the highest temperature and speed settings, the hair dryer dried my long hair fairly quickly (no longer than it takes with my ghd or Parlux).
The nozzle attachments are great for blow drying sections straight - I use this to iron out cowlicks around my hair line.
My blow dry was smooth and frizz-free.
It's perfect for short hair, fine hair and long, straight hair types.
The compact size makes it an excellent travel hair dryer.
It's cheap as chips.
It's pink. Enough said.
The wattage is slightly lower than your standard professional hair dryer (1800 compared to upwards of 2000).
It has less speed and heat settings than other professional hair dryers.
The highest heat and speed settings are lower than other professional hair dryers.
If you have thick, coarse or textured hair, your blow dry will take longer.
The hair dryer doesn't come with a diffuser attachment.
Does the Mermade Hair Dryer have the variety of power, speed and heat settings of more expensive hair dryers? No.
But did it dry my long hair straight out of the shower in under five minutes? Heck yes.
You can see my frizz-free, smooth hair after using the Mermade Hair Dryer below. Pretty good, right?
Mermade Hair Dryer vs. Dyson Hair Dryer.
Finally, let's acknowledge the question everyone's asking me in my Instagram DMs:
Is the Mermade Hair Dryer as good as the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer?
Short answer: no.
Anyone who tells you an $89 hair tool can give you the same or better results than a $549 tool is telling porkies. Dyson spent years and millions of dollars coming up with their revolutionary airflow technology, after all.
What I can tell you is the Mermade Hair Dryer is a surprisingly good hair dryer that delivers a sleek, smooth blow dry at a sixth of the cost. This is brilliant news for anyone who can't afford, nor justify, investing in a more expensive hair dryer.
Whether you use it every day, every now and again, or while travelling, the Mermade Hair Dryer gets the job done.
And did we mention it's cute AF? We did? Wonderful.
