Default Remington Emi-intrigues and scares me at the same time

At one time there was a thread about a similar dryer but it was only available in England. Has anyone dared to try this??

You tube video review!

Good lord there are a ton of really crappy reviewers on you tube. Took me like 10 mins to actually find a good one.

I honestly don't see how it wouldn't cause major damage over time. And the results from it that I've seen from other people's pictures really aren't all that impressive. You can do the same thing without the heat and the whipping around of your hair by just twisting your hair around your finger with a little hair gel and get the same if not better results IMO.

Wow. Is this a joke? The should call it The Cyclonic Tangler

It remiinds me of the good old days when my hair used to get sucked into the intake vent of my Old School Conair YellowBird

Well, yeah, its the same as blow dryer damage.

I can't speak for xcptnl, but I don't tangle ever. seriously. I don't need "detangling". The only time I've ever had to worry about tangling was when I was riding a motorcycle. I'd get tiny micro-knots, and only at the ends.

anyway, I'm guessing that this would be great for straighties as an alternative way to style hair And being a wavy with straight parts, I would LOVE this to get some of those weird parts curled! LOL, wouldn't take as long as the curlformers do to fix a straight part!

And yes, for those of us who have a "no volume" problem, this is very tempting lol!!!

I am not a big tangler either. And volume-yes I need volume. The reviews on Target were all good. So who knows. I wonder if it would be like twisting your hair as that just makes my hair straight-not sure-but it does! Like I said-I am intrigued and scared.

I am thinking they should make the tube head sized so I could just stick my whole head in it.

If I bought this and SO saw this and the Deva hand - he would have me committed. Yep. No questions asked.

I found this video and I got all distracted by the products she was showing. Of course i looked them up and they are a European company.

I bought this blow dryer about 3 months or so ago and was not happy with the results. (i'm not one that normally gets compliments on my hair but when i used this, I got insults)
If you have absolutely straight hair, you'll get better results If you have wavy to curly hair, it seems to flatten the curl pattern
DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY

That is what I was wondering because twisting my hair takes out the curl and leaves a flat mess! Thanks for posting!
