What are the Differences Among Parlux Models?

Parlux hairdryers use both ionic and ceramic technology. Ceramic technology helps to balance heat distribution, which helps reduce damage by making sure no section of your hair gets too hot. Ionic technology breaks down water droplets into smaller particles, causing the hair to dry quicker whilst paradoxically locking in moisture. This process reduces static and gives a smoother, less frizzy finish.

Choosing a Hairdryer Size

First off, the size of your hairdryer does matter. If you're looking for something you can pop into your suitcase or duffel bag, you probably want the smallest hairdryer. Here's how the different models compare:

Parlux Supercompact Ionic & Ceramic 3500 Hairdryer: 17 cm

Parlux 3800 Ceramic and Ionic Hairdryer: 18.5 cm

Parlux Power Light 385 Ionic & Ceramic Hairdryer - Aquamarine: 18.5 cm

Parlux Alyon 2250W - Black: 18.5cm

Parlux Advance Light Ionic & Ceramic Dryer 2200W: 18.5 cm (handle 1 cm longer than Parlux 385)

Featuring an ultra powerful motor, the Parlux 3500 Super Compact Ionic and Ceramic Hair Dryer is the most compact of parlux models. Offering 4 temperatures and 2 speeds plus ionic and ceramic technology to ensure your hair is left healthy, smooth and frizz-free.




Prevent Aching Arms with a Lightweight Hairdryer

Like size, weight can make a big difference in whether a hairdryer is suitable for you. If you have quite long or thick hair, you'll want your hairdryer to be as light as possible. You'll feel less strain in your arms and shoulders. Here's how the models weigh up:

Parlux Power Light 385 Ionic & Ceramic Hairdryer - Black : 449g

Parlux Alyon 2250W - Black: 456g

Parlux Advance Light Ionic & Ceramic Dryer 2200W: 456g

Parlux Supercompact Ionic & Ceramic 3500 Hairdryer: 500g

Parlux 3800 Ceramic and Ionic Hairdryer: 500g

Extremely lightweight and equally as powerful, the Parlux Power Light 385 Ionic & Ceramic Hairdryer is perfectly designed for those wanting an easy-to-use model that delivers quality results. Ceramic and ionic technology means smoother, shinier, silkier hair. Need we say more?




Hairdryer Power: How Much Do You Need?

The power of your hairdryer is easier to understand than it seems. The more power your hairdryer puts out, the faster it will dry your hair. If you want to cut your drying time, look for a model with a higher wattage. Here are the differences among the models:

Parlux Supercompact Ionic & Ceramic 3500 Hairdryer: 2000W

Parlux 3800 Ceramic and Ionic Hairdryer: 2100W

Parlux Alyon 2250W - Black:2100W

Parlux Power Light 385 Ionic & Ceramic Hairdryer - Aquamarine: 2150W

Parlux Advance Light Ionic & Ceramic Dryer 2200W: 2200W

Equipped with advanced motor technology, the Parlux Advance Light Ionic & Ceramic Dryer 2200W, is designed to deliver fast-drying results while still being incredibly energy efficient. With an instant cold shot button, the Parlux Advance Light Ionic & Ceramic Dryer 2200W also seals the cuticle for softer, shinier hair.




Additional Hairdryer Considerations

Price can certainly make or break your decision when purchasing a hairdryer. The Parlux Supercompact Ionic & Ceramic 3500 Hairdryer is the most affordable and the most compact. In contrast, the Parlux Alyon 2250W - Black is the most expensive, but is also the most advanced to date and is definitely top of the range in terms of power and weight.

The Parlux 3800 Ceramic and Ionic Hairdryer is a mid-range model, as is the Parlux Power Light 385 Ionic & Ceramic Hairdryer - Black . Another consideration: though the 385 is slightly lighter and more powerful, the 3800 is considered one of the most eco-friendly models in the Parlux range, with recycled packaging and plastic.


Last but not least, you may want to take the colour of your dryer into consideration! The Parlux Supercompact Ionic & Ceramic 3500 Hairdryer is available in eight colours, and the Parlux 3800 Ceramic and Ionic Hairdryer and Parlux Alyon 2250W - Black are available in seven. The Parlux Power Light 385 Ionic & Ceramic Hairdryer - Black is available in 10 fun shades.


No matter which Parlux you end up with, you'll find that it goes the distance. Parlux hairdryers are widely used in the best hair salons. It's not uncommon to hear that people have owned a Parlux for years.

Parlux 3800 Ceramic and Ionic Hairdryer

Best Thing Ever

Shabnam

I can’t believe I wasn’t using this earlier. I had a 6 year old hairdryer that was damaging my hair more than anything. Couldn’t blow dry or style. This Parlux has SAVED my hair. It’s left shiny and sleek instead of frizzy and dry. It has shortened my drying and straightening time and made my hair look and feel healthier.

Salon Quality Results

Michelle

I recently upgraded from buying cheap hairdryers my whole life to this one upon recommendation from my hair salon & it's been one of the best choices I've made yet. The difference in my hair is astonishing. I can either do a quicker blow-dry, or spend the same amount of time as before and get a salon quality blow-dry that lasts for days. My hair looks healthy and it's super light weight; I'm rea...

Can't Live Without

Shannon (Adore Beauty Staff)

Two years ago, I wrote a rave review about my Parlux 385, which is the next model down. It changed my life! Absolutely converted me from a person who had no problem with hotel hairdryers, to someone convincing all her friends to invest in a Parlux. The big question: is it worth it to pay extra for the Parlux 2200W over the Parlux 385? In honesty, yes. The difference in weight is surprising. And t...

Little Hairdryer with a Big Heart

Bonnie

I love this hairdryer as it is as compact as advertised, but works just as well as a regular sized hairdryer. I have been using this hairdryer for my hair design class, loving it so far. Gets the blow dry done in record time, but doesn't burn the hair. The different colours are an added bonus. I love my pink one :)

Parlux Power Light 385 Ionic & Ceramic Hairdryer

Highly Recommend

Nicole

I was recommended this hairdryer by my hairdresser. In fact it is the same as the one they use in the salon. I can honestly say you will never turn back. Hands down the best blowdryer I have ever used. Protects the health and shine of your hair, cuts down on drying time and makes stying so much easier. My hair has honestly never looked better since purchasing this dryer.
