I reviewed the Haito 4000 Series Hairdryer from the Hair Tools Professional Dryer Collection.
The Haito hairdryer came in a sleek black and pink robust cardboard box and my first impressions were it seemed very modern and professional.
The hairdryer itself is a beautiful modern white design with quirky purple handbag detail. The shape of the dryer is quite elegant and the placement of the rocker switches is quite intuitive when using it. I found I didn’t have to look to know which switch I was pressing.
The hairdryer has a 2000 watt motor and is extremely powerful. It is so powerful it actually tangled my hair at first on the highest speed setting as I wasn’t holding it in the right position. It has 2 speeds and 3 heat settings so you are sure to find the right combination for your hair type. The highest speed was a little too powerful for my long hair and did tend to blow it about all over the place but using the slim line nozzle helped to direct the air in a much more controlled way. The lowest speed is more than satisfactory too.
The lowest heat setting is actually quite cool and would be lovely in summer when it’s just too hot to have a load of heat on your head but you do still need to blow dry your hair. The medium heat setting is just right, and the highest heat setting is very, very hot but made short work of drying my thick long hair. On the hottest heat and the fastest speed my hair was dried in half my usual time.
The hairdryer also has a cool shot button that unlike previous dryers I’ve had, is actually cool. At the best they usually seem to generate lukewarm air but this cool shot is perfect to set my style.
As for practicality, the cable is a very generous length at 3m long and the dryer has an easy clean removable air filter to keep it in tip top condition. I wouldn’t say the dryer is very light, but it’s not too heavy either.
The Haito hairdryer is a good all rounder for its very reasonable price tag and I would give it top marks.
