Frizz and more frizz

I have thick wavy hair and a lot of it. I bought this hair dryer thinking it would give me a sleek blow dry in a quicker time. It was the opposite. My hair was pure frizz despite extra time blowdrying. My $40 Remington would eat this crap parlux for breakfast. Hugely disappointed  Show details

Salon Perfect Hair

This is the brand my hairdresser uses so I asked her to order one in for me - where has it been all my life ! More powerful, but less noisy than my previous hairdryers. None of that horrible high pitched whiny noise. Nice and light, takes probably half the time to dry my hair. Not sure if the magic is in the nozzle, but it doesn't blow my hair all over the place, very directional. I pop a bit of Kerastase L'Incroyable blowdry lotion on prior to protect and give my fine hair a bit of body.
I can't imagine ever buying another hairdryer. If I could give it 6 stars I would. Show details

Great hairdryer

A great lightweight hairdryer and not too noisy like most out there, it's Italian made so it screams quality. Having said that, I don't like how the switches feel but other than that it's been great. Show details

Excellent Hairdryer!

I have a very thick and long mane that drying my hair usually takes me half an hour from your department store brands. I've never heard of Parlux before but I've seen my gym equip it in their change rooms and also my local hairdresser and boy was I surprised when I used it! It is such a powerful hairdryer that it cut down my drying time in half - though my record was 10 minutes on max heat! AMAZING! I couldn't stop gushing about it that I had to get one for myself. I've had it for 4 years now and counting, so it's a really good investment as it's a bit more expensive that your department store brands, but you get the quality that you've paid for! Show details

Saved my life (hair)

I have had fly away, and extremely thick bushy my whole life. It’s a mop and the day I wash it by far the worst. I’ve tried every serum around. Even they didn’t tame it. I purchased this h/d today and tried it out. It came up as a good one. Wow!! It looks like hair now (like the hairdresser does). It’s great!! Show details

Not what I expected

The hair dryer took some getting used to. It was lighter compared to my previous turbo professional which was great. However, 2-3 weeks ago, when I put the hair dryer in an upside down position to get to the back of my head, it started automatically turning off. This was extremely disappointing. My previous hairdryer was more than 20 years old and it only started rattling once I dropped it. I have never dropped the Parlux 385 Power Light and it's only about 2 years old. Show details

Best hairdryer ever!

I love this hairdryer so much. It smooths out my curly hair effortlessly giving me an quick and easy blow wave. It's light to hold and relatively quiet. The choice of colours in fun too. I could never go back to a cheapo hairdryer. Show details

I’m looking for a lightweight hairdryer suitable for fine , curly, coloured hair. Is this suitable for travel, too?

Dianne · 385 Power Light

Do any of the parlux dryers come in travel size?

Lexluvzu · 385 Power Light

Is the PaRlux interior supposed to gradually become bright orange? I’m afraid it’s overheating or about to blow? It’s never gotten as hot as it is currently reaching to where I cannot hold the dryers body because It will burn me.
