Beauty Scoop: Blow Dryer Dry Off

CONAIR versus GOODY

In today's blog, I'm going to compare the Infiniti Pro by Conair and the Flash Dry by Goody Heat. Both dryers have three heat settings and two air speeds. They are excellent dryers, but definitely perform in different ways. Keep reading for my experience with each dryer.

Infiniti Pro by Conair

This is absolutely my favorite dryer for styling. It has noticeably different heat settings, so the hot gets really hot and the cold gets really cold. Couple that with the super powerful blast and your hair dries quickly, and styles easily. As a side note, I do prefer the buttons on this dryer.

However, since the warm setting is still pretty hot, I've noticed that my hair feels dryer and more damaged if I use this everyday. Definitely use a moisturizing heat protectant with this dryer. The first time I bought this dryer was four years ago. I have replaced it twice since then, but that has been my experience with most dryers.

Flash Dry by Goody Heat

I bought this dryer about a year ago. I really like to use this dryer for everyday drying. My hair seems much healthier and shinier with this dryer.  Since it does not get as hot or blast as strongly as the Conair, I don't recommend this dryer for serious styling. However, I love the defuser for this dryer and despite a gentler blow, it still dries my hair rather quickly.

The major drawback for this dryer is that the cold setting doesn't get cold enough, so it makes it impossible to style with. 

So who is the winner? 
You may be surprised, but these days, it is the Flash Dry.  Since I'm trying take better care of my hair, I do not style it with a blow dryer. In fact, I air dry until it is mostly dry, because as many of you know, the longer your hair is, the easier it gets damaged. That is why I prefer the more gentle heat from the Flash Dry.

Overall, both are great dryers, but depending on your hair needs, one may be better suited for you. If you blow out your hair on a regular basis, you'll love the Infitini Pro. If you have curly hair, or dry/damaged hair, the Flash Dry would be a better choice.
