My Experience with Panasonic EH5287 Hair Dryer:
This Panasonic hair dryer is a travel sized one. I wanted to buy something small to use at home and to carry during my vacations. This hair dryer has 2 speed settings, which can be switched with a button. The noise level is quite high, going by the size of the dryer. I normally use it at the lower speed setting. You will find out the reason as you read this review further.
The hair dryer is blue in colour. It has a long cable, which is sufficient enough to work with. One can also fold the handle to make the dryer fit into a small pouch. I have never folded it as I keep the dryer in between my clothes when I travel. The nozzle has a plastic cap which directs warm air in the desired direction in a controlled way. The air blown out is always warm. There is no option for cold air, which is another bummer. I prefer cold air blow as it does not cause much damage to hair and is eco-friendly.
The hairdryer is easy to hold and use. It is pretty lightweight, mainly due to the size. You do not get any diffuser with the dryer; a diffuser is very helpful especially if you have curly hair and also to keep frizz at bay. Now the worst part – whenever I use this product I can smell something burning. It was not the case for the initially few months. Then it started and I do not know what the problem is! I can smell some sort of smoke as soon as I start using the product. As I mentioned earlier, I use it only on the low-speed setting.
I assume the product gets overheated quickly. The product also has an in-built overheat protection system but I am scared to use it because of this smell. I am scared the dryer will emit sparks, which can be pretty dangerous. So, I have totally stopped using this. I have a normal sized dryer which I want to travel with now. I think the normal sized dryers are always better than these travel sized ones.

Cons of Panasonic EH5287 Hair Dryer:
• Only 2-speed selection available

IMBB Rating: 1/5
