Product Review: SuperSolano Hair Dryer

Misikko is an online hair & beauty store that has been featured a lot in the blogging world – especially for their Hana Professional Best Flat Iron – which a lot of bloggers reviewed and did giveaways on. Here are some posts featuring them from Canadian blogs that I follow:

I prefer to keep heat-styling to a minimum – but for special occasions, I like to achieve Gossip Girl/Kardashian inspired hair (with volume at the crown and beachy waves). So I asked Misikko if I could review one of their professional hairdryers – since heat is required to create volume. They sent me the SuperSolano 1875 watt professional dryer (model 232K).

So far, I’ve mainly been using it on the cool setting, when I don’t have time to air-dry my hair. I’ve found that it works quickly – even without the heat(!) – to dry my hair and leave it looking silky. This model features ceramic and tourmaline technology – important options to consider when buying a hairdryer, as they ensure even heat distribution, faster drying time, and shinier hair. It has 3 temperature settings, 2 speeds, a cold shot button and an extra long cord. I’ve found the motor to be very powerful, yet quiet. The dryer is well-balanced and easy to maneuver without making my hands tired – I really enjoy using it!

Since I don’t frequently use a hair dryer on my hair, I wanted to feature a second opinion on this product – from a more experienced user. I asked my sister (who has thick, gorgeous hair and NEEDS to use a hairdryer after EVERY wash) to try this as well. She also found the hairdryer very lightweight and easy to use. However, she personally uses a RUSK hairdryer and prefers it to the Solano, as she found the cool setting on the Solano to be a little too cold (she actually said it felt like air conditioning!). Maybe her scalp is more sensitive than mine, as I found the cool setting very comfortable.

If you’re in the market for new hair tools – it is worth checking out Misikko’s site. They have a wide range of items, including Hot Tools Curling Irons (another must-have for Kardashian-inspired hair) and a Pink T3 Tourmaline Dryer (I wish my Solano was pink!!!) Also, check back soon, as I will be holding a Misikko product giveaway!

    I've heard great things about the Solano, I believe alot of hairdressers use that one. I love my avanti but recently purchased another one G+6002 (an italian brand). I had tried the T3 & wasn't impressed. Also, thanks for the link love:-)

    Hi Monica! It's so hard choosing the right hairdryer – there are so many options out there. I'm glad I was sent this Solano – as it has everything I need!I loved the pink iron they sent you – but I don't straighten my hair – and for curling – I'd rather use an iron. I've tried curling with a straightener – and I end up with fried STRAIGHT hair LOL!
