So there I am, getting ready to celebrate July 4th with the girls in Newport, minding my own business blow drying my hair when I hear laughing. I spin around to see Remi and Sami laughing over something, but I can’t figure out what. I immediately check to make sure my skirt isn't tucked inside my bathing suit bottoms. Nope. Is there something coming out of my nose? No. Do I have toilet paper stuck to my foot? Ketchup on my white shirt? All negative. What on earth could it be?!
That's when Remi chuckles about how it's funny that the self-proclaimed "beauty obsessed" girl in the group is the one with the most beat up, worn out looking blow dryer she's ever seen. I'm appalled. This is my Sedu Revolution 4000i! You cannot make fun of her! She's amazing!
The sad thing is, Remi's right. I've known for awhile that this baby was getting old, I just wasn't ready to face the truth. I've had this blow dryer for years, and it's the best one I've ever tried. I refuse to use any other one. But through the traveling and normal wear and tear, she's gotten old. I've dropped her a couple times (typically when I'm in the middle of drying my hair and a cute boy texts me) and airport security has not been too kind. The vent in the back of the dryer, which is supposed to catch dust and unwanted particles that you don't want flying into your hair, broke off some time ago. This results in me having to be very careful that my own hair on my head doesn't get sucked in. This is difficult, and has happened more times than I'm willing to admit. (Okay, it's 3... maybe 4.) Every time I'm forced to cut the knot out of my hair, which totally messes up my layers, especially when the knot is high up towards my scalp.
I decided to sit down and have a talk with poor, broken Sedu. This is how it went down, "There comes a time in every beauty appliances life when it’s time to say goodbye. Unfortunately for you, little blow dryer, your time is now." Okay, maybe I really didn’t say it, but I thought it. I'm going to donate this blow dryer and treat myself to a fresh, new one. I'll try to keep her in better condition, but no promises.
There are many reasons this blow dryer has been my favorite for the past few years. Here are a few of them:
1. My hair dries in literally half the time of any other blow dryer I’ve ever tried. The power behind this tool is incredible. Anytime a friend tries it out they always comment about how quickly their hair was dry and ask me where they can get one too. (Except Remi... she just makes fun of me.)
2. It’s compact and lightweight. For someone who travels as much as I do that’s a huge deal. It takes up less space in my suitcase and doesn’t weigh it down so I can fit more makeup. Or shoes :)
3. My hair never frizzes up when I use this blow dryer. Any other blowdryer, and it takes a ton of products to make sure my hair doesn’t turn into poodle syndrome. With the technology behind this product, my hair is silky, smooth, and frizz-free every time!
The model I have is the 4000i which is outdated. The upgraded version is the same price but is technically called the 6000i. You can get your own here, here or here.
**wait....... that doesn't sound right....... oh well!**
