Great hairdryer & power
The hair dryer is on the expensive end but its worth the money as it lasts for decent amount of years. i had to replace my old one, which lasted at least 8-10 years. i like the fact that it is made in italy, its ionic and blow dries my hair straight. I have also taken it for travel overseas with me as it is light, compact and easy to pack in my suitcase. It can be slightly noisy but I can put up with the noise. i haven't had any issues with it.
Purchased in September 2018 for $160.00.

This is amazing
I love this product it is sleek elegant and simply amazing it blows my hair dry in about 10 minutes way better than i expected i also really like the colours of the Parlux 385
Purchased in December 2018.
The electric wind blows well, the design is good, it's light and easy to hold in your hand. It is very convenient to store, the sound when used is very small, very quiet, it is windy enough, even the long hair is easy to blow dry.
Love This Hair Dryer
This was a little present for myself and I love it! It is so nice to use and lives up to my expectations very well. It is compact and absolutely a breeze to maneuver around in the morning. Its compact so I travel with it but I like it more than the one we have at home. Really good quality hair dryer.
Parlux is the brand I am sticking with, until I can buy a Dyson
I switched to Parlux about three years ago and this is my second hairdryer, since my old Parlux 3800 suddenly stopped one day (only used every second day.) I like to use high fan and low heat and Parlux hairdryers do not burn my hair but dry it fast. Also good that I do not have to clean the filter like I used to with other brands. I would have liked to have bought a coloured model, not my usual black though.
Good hair dryer!
This is a good hairdryer, l would recommended it as a hairdresser. Very smooth and perfect heat for drying! I find its not to noisy either and easy to clean.
If you are a daily user of a hairdryer, I would definitely recommend this one. It is light, cools quickly. Looks stylish and runs amazing and i would not recommend another one
Does the job well
This dryer distributes hot air well compared to some cheaper hairdryers and is less likely to damage hair compared to some that burn too hot (on user selection) and to focused. I've had this over 2yrs now, and use on a daily basis, and still working well.
I really do love this hairdryer. Not only does it come in a range of awesome colours, but it heats well and is very comfortable to hold while drying your or someone else's hair. I would have gave it a 5 but on occasion mine does to have a slight burning smell.
I love this hairdryer, very efficient and not very loud, although when i read reviews it claimed to be one of the quietest hairdriers but it isn't any quieter than my previous visal sasson one. It is also quite pricey. Overall still loved it.
This is an expensive hair dryer but a hairdresser recommended to me. She said the GHD wasn't so good and to buy a parlux. So I like it, it looks good and the range of colours available is awesome. However not sure if it is that much better than a cheaper one. At the end of the day they all dry your hair. No complaints though.
A good investment in healthy hair
Would have given 5 stars if it wasn't so expensive (Even on sale!). But it does dry hair really quickly and seems noticeably gentler on my hair than normal hairdryers.
The temperature & speed controls are a little confusing (one blue, one red?) but it's not a big deal.
Also it's light to hold and has a good length cord which are important factors.
- 385 Power Light
I bought this hairdryer purely off my so many online recommendation - my favourite feature is it is so incredibly quick to dry hair.
It's expensive too, which is why I didn't get 5 stars (as I do feel others on the market are comparable for half the cost), but it is a lovely hair dryer to own. They seem to have a lot of raving fans.
Great hair blow dryer plenty of power works well for me and my family. Easy to pack and take away on holidays does everything I need it to do gets the job done.
This item is the best hair dryer i ever had. It works amazingly well and has never disappointed me before. The different colours is also amazing as there are so many.
Questions & Answers
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.
I wish someone at Parlux would address this. I bought mine two years ago and it’s doing this exact thing. It’s bright orange inside now I can only use medium heat on high to get a decent blowout. It also destroyed my YSPark diffuser with how hot it gets!!! I’m afraid it’s goibg to explode on me. My co workers parlux once blew up on him while styling a client. Flames actually came out the front luckily it was a long time client of his I’m afraid mine is going to do the same. I love my parlux but they’re proving they o Ky last two years and I don’t feel that’s what a hairstylist wants to purchase every other year
What is the best setting to dry short fine hair to create a style full of volume but not frizz. I find the 2 switches very confusing. I first like to 'rough dry' my hair, fast flow heat, then to style, medium flow heat, but often the temperature feels too hot and potentially damaging. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
My hair is very thick, I use the highest setting because my hair is so thick and coarse, it does get very hot but it smooths my frizz better. Never use the high setting on fine hair even the medium setting can get very hot. I would definitely use the lowest setting with full power for your hair, you could potentially damage your hair on a higher heat setting. I don't know much about the settings really or hair but there is a customer service phone number you can call
1800 251 215 not sure if they will be much help but it's worth a shot. Good luck :)
