Philips Salon Dry Active Ion Hair Dryer Review

Philips Salon Dry Active Ion Hair Dryer

Philips HP4935 Hair Dryer

Features :

  • Cool Shot
  • Ceramic Coating
  • Swivel Cord
  • Ion Conditioning
  • Hanging Loop
  • Handle Lock System for Easy Storage

Model No : HP4935

Model No Along with the Hair Straightener : HP8299

I bought a straightener + dryer combo and both together cost me Rs 2600 approx from HERE 

My Experience : Until recently I was using some no brand hair dryer. I decided to pick up a new hair dryer a few days back. Since I have had a super experience with Philips Hair Straightener, I decided to go for a dryer from Philips only. Plus it’s the negative ions technology that made the Philips straightener special , the dryer has the same technology. This stuff is amazing.

  • The ceramic black coating with pretty pink polka dots make it look sooo sexy.
  • It comes with a nozzle attachment if you want to use it for concentrated heat while styling your hair .
  • Has cool , warm and hot settings. The days whenI am not in a hurry, I just dry my hair with cool settings.
  • If the appliance overheats, it switches off automatically.
  • You can also adjust the airflow – I for drying short hair and II for drying / styling long hair
  • Has negative ions technology that adds shine to the hair and also reduced frizz.
  • You can even hang it to save space.
  • Comes with a pretty long chord.
  • Comes with a 2 year warranty.
Overall, I am super happy with this hair dryer. I’d review the straightener also in a few days. Totally worth the money. It holds true to its name. Your hair do look salon (blow) dried.  :)

Philips HP4935 Hair Dryer and Philips HP8315 Hair Straightener

This is my today’s blow dired hair (almost after 4 hours of blow drying) . I was in a super hurry so this is just a 10 minute dry on high settings.  I love how it does not make my hair frizzy and adds so much shine.

Rati November 25, 2012 at 11:03 am

hihihi you have the option of cool settings and with the kind of winters you get here in Delhi, you cannot do without a hair dryer. You’d end up catching cold every now and then :P

Your hair look nice Rati…. I so much love straight, frizz free, manageable hair and I so much hate my curly/wavy fizzy and moody hair… I can’t wear them witout styling…. And styling takes long time…. Btw Your review reminded me that i have Philips blow dryer with me which I bought last year and then kept it packed some where so safe that I can’t find it now :)

Hope to take mr husbands help and find it super soon as you tempted me to use it :) as of now my Conair rotating hot air brush is working for me but that takes good 30 minutes to dry my hair!!

Oooh, I LOVE Philips Salon Range of hair products! I had their travel-sized dryer earlier but recently bought this one. I wouldn’t care even if it was an average product (which it really isn’t) because it’s just so pretty! :D

And your hair looks SO gorgeous. Did you get a new haircut? Or has your hair just grown longer in order to look more awesome? :P

Looks like a great hair dryer, thanks for sharing! I own a professional one too, though it’s a Karmin G3, but it’s really fast at drying.

Reply

Monique November 26, 2012 at 10:58 pm

looks nice, although my favorite is the karmin g3 hair dryer, works with ceramic heat and keeps my hair smooth and soft. :)

I’ve got the very same kit. While the straightener is fantastic, I can’t use the blow dryer ’cause the fuse of my plug point went off, the last time I used it. I feel so deprived right now ’cause I have a pretty awesome blow dryer sitting on my closet and I can’t even use it!!!!!!! :’( :’(Any suggestions people?? :)

Hi,
I am looking for a hair dryer within reasonable price and even looking to blow dry my curly hair with it. Could you please suggest some good ones which have cool settings in it. To blow dry the curly hair how much of watts should the hair dryer be so that it straightens and make style with it. I do have a CHI straightener but I think blow dryer will serve the purpose of straightening fast.
I have seen few of philips and panasonic 600watts to 1600watts dryers. Does 600watts serve the purpose of straightening.
