An amazing hair dryer - while it works, anyway3200 Compact
Bought it in June 2022. Have stored it correctly, used it every couple of days since purchase.
It was an amazing hair dryer, best I've ever owned - I have raved to a lot of people about it.
About a week ago, it started emitting a burning smell and the power on the hottest temperature setting suddenly diminished. It was still very useable, however.
Yesterday I was blow drying my hair and it started making a crackling sound and then I received a nasty jolt from it. I dropped it like a hot potato, pulled the cord from the socket and now I'm too afraid to use it again in case I get properly electrocuted by it.
I paid around $250 for this hair dryer. I expect better. Now I have to find a new hair dryer and burn more cash.
Good, not amazing3200 Compact
It's a great compact hairdryer and does the job, but not as good as I thought it would be. It does take a while to dry my curly hair with a diffuser. I bought the Parlux diffuser which was useless for curly hair!! I bought a different one (Lotus) and it works heaps better but still takes a while.
Disapppointed with Parlux 32003200 Compact
I bought this item new 3.5 years ago for domestic use. On average I would use it for no more than1.25 hours per week. Two days ago, whilst drying my hair, sparks appeared out of front of the nozzle. I turned it off, let it cool and then tried it again and there was no heat, just air.
I would have expected a much greater life than I have. I also have a Wahl which is 15 years old and still going and reliable. Usual planned obsolescence?
Amazing hair dryer3200 Compact
Works really well and quickly. Don't need to use a straightener anymore. I have medium thick curly hair that goes frizzy. Dries straight with this in 10 minutes. Saves me so much time and my hair is much healthier.
No other hairdryer compares Best on the market3200 Compact
Love this hairdryer, I bought this to replace my similar Parlux model I had had for 15 years, drying everyone in the household's hair as well as my several dogs could not fault it this one I've had for 6 months or so and I'm sure will be the same it's a solid build, the body of the hairdryer does not get hot although the attachments do and it dries like no other hairdryer i've tried, probably why they use them in hairdressers. Very reliable and wouldn't buy anything else always been a good brand.
Durable product3200 Compact
Get hands are very weight, looks also very texture, a quick blow dry long hair, the key is the hair dryer power cord quality is very good, than I used the electric wind blowing well, certainly durable, very practical a product.
Good product!3200 Compact
Great value, high heat, lasts for years, on the louder end for dryers.This is an awesome blow dryer I am a professional stylist and this works great, it never lets me down!
Amazing product with amazing results. Easy storage and light to hold. Works quickly and isn't too noisy. Good investment if you use a blow dryer daily. Great price for usage.
smooth and nice3200 Compact
I absolutely love this product its so good it makes my long hair very smooth and nice it also has great heating settings it definitely the best in the market.
Bought this hair dryer because it's the same one my hair dresser uses.
I was really impressed with what people were saying in their reviews about the condition of their hair after using this dryer! They were right, I've had this dryer a couple of months now and my hair is always so smooth and shiny after using this dryer! I really have seen a noticable difference.
Dries my hair faster than anything else I've ever tried.
Worth the money. If you're on the fence, DO IT!
Makes hair silky smooth!3200 Compact
If your a hairdresser then this is what you need, all your clients will be happy with the end result. I absolutely love it as it makes your hair silky smooth!!
The best3200 Compact
The patlux hairdryer is the best in the market. It has a stronger motor hence being lighter or of a good weight compared to cheaper models that are usually heavier but sound drained when in use. The parlux is kinder to your hair and a well manufactured product. I only purchase this brand
Overrated parlux crud3200 Compact
Used this for about 2 years and was given as a gift . Bought from an ebay seller and it was pretty genuine. After few months. I would heat my hair on full setting and wondered why there was an internal burning smell. I checked and I the smell was coming from the hair dry... I thought it was gone. But then I tried it again but on second hottest temperature and full blast wind. Tada it works! It's a bother I can't use the hottest setting though.
Love it. My "go to" for great hair.3200 Compact
I have had my hairdryer now for well over 5 years. It does a nice job and doesn't dry out my hair. My hair is long and has a shine. It is a heavy duty professional dryer and it gets used alot. I find with this dryer I can get loads of volume if I want to or can style easily for a flatter look. It is well weighted so my arm does not get tired. I like the cool button to set and lock in the shape of the hair especially when I use round brushes. I find it has enough power if I want to get a dead straight look without having to use a hair st... Read moreraightener. I really love this dryer. My sister has the same hair as me and she uses a GHD dryer. I've often been at her house to get ready to go out and have used her dryer. It as not as good as the Parlux. She uses my dryer when at my house and has commented that it is better than her hair dryer. Because I have had this dryer for so long, I have not got the receipt, however, I purchased it at the Hairhouse Warehouse. These hair dryers cost more than your usual chain store ones, but it is of professional heavy duty quality and well worth the money.
I absolutely LOVE this dryer.
I have never had a Parlux before, my brother works at Hairhouse Warehouse and bought me one for my birthday last year.
It drys so quickly. Very powerful and I like the cooling button as I actually dry my lash extensions with it after I wash them. :)

Where can I buy this with an Australian plug? Everywhere I've found comes with a UK plug!
I bought mine at Hairhouse Warehouse, in our local Westfield Shopping Centre. Mind you, it was the only one they had, but I'm sure you could order it in if your local store is out of stock.
