I just bought a hard hat dryer (BaByliss) and used it for the first time this morning. I LOVE IT. MORE THAN ANYONE SHOULD LOVE AN INANIMATE OBJECT. I need to play with variables such as products, duration of drying time and clipping, but it dried quickly with virtually no frizz.
It cuts way down on drying time, of course (I've never liked diffusers so I've always air-dried) but I was held captive in my chair. I read a fashion magazine and pretended to be at the salon. But if you're sitting at your vanity for a long period of time, you could just wheel the dryer up behind your seat and dry as your put on makeup, etc. I don't wear much makeup so I imagine I will be reading or checking my email most mornings.
