I Kissed A Hair Dryer

If you ever wake up before your kids and need to blow dry your hair quietly, you need the Valecta Paramount hair dryer. I love it so much I kissed it.

Hair dryer kiss

It’s fast. It’s efficient. And it’s quiet. No joke y’all. I made a video to show you what I mean.

There are only two things I don’t like about this dryer, and they’re not actually bad things. 

1) The cord is super long.
2) The air it blows gets super hot.

Since this is a professional salon hairdryer, it makes sense that the cord is really long. But I have a really small bathroom and don’t need a super long cord. I will admit, it has come in handy for chasing Levi out of the bathroom without unplugging 🙂

It’s also no surprise the air can get really hot. When I use the attachment that concentrates and directs the hot air, of course it’s going to get hot. I want it to get hot. I have pretty wavy/curly hair, so I need that heat when I straighten it. It just sucks when I’m still half-asleep and accidentally blow dry my fingers instead of my hair.

Otherwise, I’m totally in love. It’s quiet. It dries my hair in half the time as my old blow dryer. It has all the standard features, too – warm/hot setting, high/low setting, and a cool button. It even came with an extra replacement air filter.

You can buy the super-quiet Valecta Paramount hair dryer at Flat Iron Experts. They’ve never steered me wrong (you can check out my flat iron review here), and they offer free shipping and bonus products when you order.

Do You Love Your Hair Dryer?

Disclosure: Flat Iron Experts sent me a complimentary blow dryer for the purpose of this review. All opinions and kisses are 100% my own.

    $220??? Seriously??? WOW! But, I guess if I’m buying a $220 hairdryer, then $$$ is no issue! LOL

  2. What a really nice hair dryer! But it is a little pricey! I thought my $60 dollar hair dryer was expensive! But I like that it is quiet! My hair dryer is not very quiet, but it gets the job done! You have a Nice hair dryer!

  3. What a great hair dryer!! If I could afford it would be perfect!

  4. If that thing lasts like they’re supposed to, that could be a seriously nice addition to my kit in the bathroom. I hate waking the kids up in the morning since I wake up a little after 5am.

  5. Jen, your video of drying your hair didn’t even wake up my baby who is in my arms as I am watching you dry your hair! I don’t use a dryer because it makes my hair super curly. I might sneak over and try your new dryer out someday 🙂

  6. Great video and a great hair dryer! I can’t afford the hefty price tag, but I’m SURE it’s worth it!

  7. You can tell the difference in sound in your video review – amazing! By the way – your first hair dryer looks & sounds exactly like mine.

  8. I don’t really use hair dryers. But this one sounds good.

  9. Sounds like a great hairdryer! It probably come with such a high price tag because its a professional line. I would love a quiet hair dryer!!

  10. I have not blow dried my hair in years but I do have one!

  11. My hair is naturally curly. And there is a lot of it. When I straighten it, it falls down my back. I hate straightening it, so I need a blow dryer that has some heat. I like this review – it makes me wanna blow dry my hair

  12. The hair dryer looks like it would work well on my girls hair to straighten it out without having to dry it and then use a flat iron when they want to have a little straighter look. Great review!

  13. I have a fancy ceramic hair dryer that I love, but it is 10 years old and dying. I wish I could run out and buy this one!

  14. Dude. I SERIOUSLY need that hair dryer. My hair is half way down my back, curly, and THICK. Plus, I rarely get to dry my hair because inevitably the baby is sleeping and I am afraid to blast him out of the house with the obnoxious hair dryer that I currently use.

    Your hair looks FABOO!

  15. I have so much hair that it still takes about a half an hour to dry it with a hair dryer….I don’t have that time, patience, or arm strength (lol), so I usually end up scrunching the hair or putting it up in a clip. Of course, that is not ideal in the wintertime, so perhaps I am in need of a new hair dryer if it can get the job done quickly! And quietly is a definite must!

  16. Jo-Ann Brightman says:

    I like my hair dryer (VidalSassoon) and it didn’t cost so much money.

  17. I have really thin hair so my cheap-o dryer is usually enough to tackle my locks, BUT it’s also really loud! The Valecta would have come in handy when I was at Blogher trying to get ready without waking up my roomie!

  18. Toni Porter says:

    That sounds like a great hair dryer, but typically, I let my hair air dry, even though it falls to my waist.

  19. That is a really nice dryer, and I can really appreciate the quiet-ness with a little one of my own.

  20. Tiffany Kinney says:

    I dont use a hair dryer but i know they are loud and its NEVER good to wake sleeping kids when your getting ready!!!!

  21. What a great hair dryer!!

  22. Sherry Compton says:

    Your title grabbed my attention. I never know what to buy in a hairdryer. Good to know that this one is so good you would kiss it.

  23. Seyma Shabbir says:

    MY Hair dryer is LOUD! It is due to be replaced for sure but I am hesitant to spend $220. For that price it should last at least 10 years. But my hair is the same as yours – curly/frizzy and I need the heat to straighten it. Will have to keep this one in mind!

  24. Jessica P. says:

    Wow that price is crazy!:/ I’m a super cheap-o/smart bargain shopper,however you want to look at it.:P lol I probably spent $30 on my blow dryer! But then again I don’t care about it being quiet, and I don’t *want* it to get very hot..

  25. Lucy Black says:

    I hate when I make this super awful noise just to dry my hair – that sounds great!
