Braun SensoCare Hairdryer Review

Saturday, December 13, 2014


 A few weeks ago my old hairdryer conked out on me and completely stopped working, and it couldn't have come at a worse time. While I try to let my hair air dry where possible I really came to appreciate how much I still rely on my trusty dryer, especially when it's freezing cold in the morning and you've got ice cold hair dripping down your back! So when this beauty came into my life it was a dream come true; I already own the Sensocare Styler straightners from this range so knew it was going to be good, but I can safely say it's the best hairdryer I've ever used by far. If you're thinking to yourself, 'surely a hairdryer is just a hairdryer' you couldn't be more wrong, all hairdryers are definitely not created the same. My previous model was one by Toni and Guy (which I considered to be pretty decent as far as hairdryers go) but this is a huge upgrade!

Braun's Sensocare styling range uses technology that actively prevents over heating and damaging the hair. This dryer contains a rather fancy built in 'thermo sensor' which measures the temperature six hundred times a minute (!!) and immediately adjusts to the optimal level. This is exactly the kind of thing I've always wanted, as I've often worried about over using hairdryers and damaging my hair. But it's not always practical to to wait around for it to dry naturally- which became all too obvious to me after my last dryer broke down and I was left without one... Appearance wise it definitely looks the part; it's sleek and black and has a red LED strip on the side which lights up when it's switched on. It comes with a narrow concentrator nozzle for sleek and straight hair, and a large diffuser head to stop curly hair from going frizzy. It has three power settings that you'd get with most hairdryers, but you have much more control with the temperature with the + and - buttons on the side as opposed to just three standard heat settings. This is a bit heavier than other hairdryers I've used, but I think is understandable with all that technology packed in. It's not uncomfortable to hold, but something I did notice the first time I used it in comparison with my old one.

At almost £80 this doesn't come cheap, however when it comes to things like hairdryers you'll only ever need to buy them once in a blue moon and so it's worth buying quality. Cheaper hairdryers don't last nearly as long, plus they're usually not very powerful or can damage your hair (had quite a few of those over the years!) While this is more of an investment you know you're buying quality, and the product itself going to be a lot less damaging on your hair than similar products. All in all I love this, if you're looking for a new hairdryer or are looking to buy one for someone else as a gift this Christmas, I highly recommend this one!

Have you tried any of Braun's heat styling tools?

  1. Not going to lie, I still just think a hair dryer is a hair dryer - and I have a GHD one! I'm not really a hair-styling buff though so I'm probably not the best person to judge..

    1. If you're used to a GHD dryer I can see why you'd think that, but give a cheaper/ crappy dryer a go and I bet you'd change your mind! lol xx

    1. I wish I had curls to use a diffuser haha! I don't think my diffuser will be seeing much action at all, but I love the narrow nozzle it makes hair really sleek x
