In our quest for somewhere-near-perfect hair we’ve been know to shell out three days’ wages on a cut and blow dry and have even purchased shampoo that cost more than our shoes. Yet somehow when it came to our hair dryer, anything over $9.99 somehow seemed obscene. Then we met the Ted Gibson Professional Tourmaline Hair Dryer. The lovely brown pro tool is pretty much the best dryer that's touched our hair, using nano fuzeion technology to dry strands while protecting them from damage. And it does it all around a quarter of the time, cutting the standard eight minutes a day we spend with our head overturned to just over two—which on any given morning is more than enough to blow us away.
