T3 Bespoke Labs 83808-SE Featherweight Professional Ionic Ceramic Tourmaline Hair Dryer Review | Light Weight & Fast Drying

Friday, August 13th, 2010

T3 Bespoke Labs Hair DryerBespoke Labs Featherweight Professional Ionic Ceramic Hair Dryer is a powerful 1800 watts, but it only weighs 13 ounces. It also comes with a removable filter and screen, 2 speed settings and cool shot, as well as an ionized concentrator.

It promises to:

  • Dry hair 60% faster
  • Eliminate the "frizzy look"
  • Add moisture & sheen

This certainly sounds like a good hair dryer especially if it eliminates frizz. I hate blow drying my hair cause it looks so fluffy and feels dry after wards.

There are mixed reviews on this product. One person from says how the hair dryer made her hair look healthier, shinier and cut down her drying time.

While another user said it was a waste of money because it isn't very powerful and didn't cut down her drying time. That was the main reason she brought it.

To Sum Up

I think this hair dryer would be best suited for when traveling as it is lightweight and for someone with short or fine hair, as some ladies found it wasn't powerful enough to dry their thick long hair.

T3 Bespoke Labs 83808-SE Featherweight Professional Ionic Ceramic Tourmaline Hair Dryer can be bought for $91.95 as it is on sale. It normally costs $200. Which I think is a lot to spend on a hair dryer, but if it stops hair from frizzing it may be worth it.

    Original Moroccan Oil By Moroccan Oil Review | Helps Repair, Thicken & Smooth Damaged Hair

    Friday, July 23rd, 2010

    Moroccan OilTo be honest I had never heard of this Moroccan oil until today. Now I have done my research and read a lot of reviews, I want to try it!

    It is a oil that is designed to restore the natural shine and softness to damaged over styled hair.

    Moroccan oil comes from the fruits of a Argan tree, which is found in the south west of Morocco. It thrives in dessert like conditions. Moroccan women use this oil to condition their hair and skin. To help protect it from the harsh heat conditions.

    Most of the reviews from Amazon and are very enthusiastic about this oil. Moroccan oil lovers say how their hair looks so much shinier, smoother and in some cases, it has even helped to thicken the hair.

    There are some users that don't care for it. They said it leaves their hair a bit greasy and didn't spread evenly throughout their hair. So some parts were smooth and frizz free while other sections were left greasy.

    To get the best results from the Moroccan oil, apply a dime sized amount to your palm, rub palms together and apply to just washed towel dried hair. Starting from the tips then working it in all over.


    Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Cyclomethicone, Butylphenyl Methyl Propional, Argania Spinoza Kernel Oil (Argan Oil), Linseed (Linum Usitatissimum) Extract, Fragrance Supplement, D&C Yellow-11, D&C Red-17, Coumarin, Benzyl Benzoate, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone.

    This Moroccan Oil is expensive at around $20-$40 a bottle but most users think it's worth the price. Apparently it lasts a long time because not much is needed, say some reviews.

    Wednesday, July 21st, 2010

    Paul Mitchell Flat IronThe Paul Mitchell Smoothing Flat Iron has a express ion complex which is designed to protect hair against heat damage.

    There are different opinions about the Paul Mitchell Iron. Some reviews on say it's brilliant, better than the Chi Iron. It makes hair "silky smooth" with very little effort, say a few Paul Mitchell fans.

    While other ladies say they have had a lot of problems with the wiring (the irons cut out all the time) and some have said their PM irons have set on fire. One unfortunate lady said the straighteners burnt her hair and made it look in terrible condition.

    • 1 ¼-inch cushion plates.
    • Beveled edges ensure you don't get that horrid line.
    • Slim plate design.
    • Variable temperature settings designed so hair doesn't get burnt.

    • Energy efficient, using 75 watts of electricity.

    If you still want to purchase the Paul Mitchell Smoothing Flat Iron it varies in price from $60-$160.

    Just a warning to anyone who is thinking of buying these straighteners, they have been discontinued by some manufacturers. I think this might be because of the wiring problems some people have had.

    GHD PinkWell I think most girls know the name GHD (good hair day) by now. These irons are effortlessly on-trend in gloss 80s-vibe fuchsia pink, you can straighten, curl, wave or flip your hair. Same as most irons now days.

    Users say it is great because their hair has never looked better. One user says she likes the sleep mode as it's really safe, she has left other irons on before only to find they have burnt furniture. "They keep your hair looking fab for longer than other irons", says another GHD fanatic.

    The only negative thing I can say about the GHD Pink IV Styler is that its expensive. The price hasn't put many people off though, most of the users still think it is great value for money.

    Features include:

    • ROUNDER BARREL:= to easily create curls and waves.
    • SLEEP MODE= turns off after 30 mins of not being used.
    • UNIVERSAL VOLTAGE= automatically work with any voltage in the world.
    • SHIVER MODE= Internal condensation can damage stylers. So when the room temperature is below 8 C your GHD IV Styler will shut down to protect itself until temperature rises again
    • UNIQUE DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY= Improved temperature control.
    • ADVANCED CERAMIC HEATERS AND ALUMINIUM PLATES= The ultimate styling surface for smoothest static-free sheen

    Talking of expensive the GHD Pink IV is can range in price from anywhere from $40-$100, so it's definitely worth shopping around for the deals. Personally I love GHD they're the only irons that make my hair look near perfect.

    Some unlucky ladies have said that it doesn't work on their curly/wavy hair and the Chi Has has actually fried the ends coursing it to turn white. A few unhappy Chi customers from the Folica site have also said not to buy the Chi as it's a waste of money.

    Product Features

    • 1" Flat iron
    • Beveled plate edges.
    • Chi ceramic technology
    • Digital technology - heats up to 200 C (392 F)
