If you want a high performing hair dryer then this is our top pick. It’s so easy to use and manoeuvre around the head without any change in performance. It has a guaranteed 2000 hour motor life, so you can dry your hair for 30 minutes every day for over 10 years and it’s still guaranteed to last. This biggest drawback we found was the outer casing get very hot after using, we recommend placing it on a heat mat rather than directly onto a surface. If you want the best Parlux then opt for this one, you won’t regret it.
Without a doubt the Parlux 3200 is one of the vest professional grade hairdryers you can buy for home use. At 69 m³/h the airflow is slightly less than its big sister the 3800, but it’s still extremely high performing. The ceramic ionic technology use in this hairdryer keeps you hair healthy and prevents long term drying damage. I’s ideal for frequent use and will enable you to dry your hair in around 5-10minutes as well as spend longer styling with the extra nozzles. Expect to pay around £80 for this model.
- Light and compact
- Very quick drying
- Adjustable heat settings
- Sturdy with quality motor
- Switches in awkward position on handle
If you want all the benefits of the 3800 model but don’t care for the silencer or eco-friendly motor then opt for the parlux 3200. This hairdryer will give you that high maintenance look without the effort. The powerful motor dries your hair in no time at all. It’s easy to underestimate the power of the motor so use on the lower setting first and always use a heat protect spray to avoid long term hair damage.
The biggest fault we could find with this hairdryer was that the buttons were not positioned great. It’s really easy to switch the hairdryer settings when holding the handle, but it may just need a bit of practice to avoid doing that. It’s well worth the money for such great performance.
