New Hair Toy To Try: Panasonic Nanoe Hair Dryer

Panasonic and beauty might not be two words you often associate together, but the Japanese company has expanded their empire to the beauty world. And they've brought some really fancy technology, which includes a hair dryer that dries your hair and feeds it with (get this) moisture.
Normal hair dryers simply blow hot air over hair to dry it, but the Panasonic Nanoe dryer, on the other hand, captures moisture from damp hair and surrounding air and infuses it back into the hair with nanoe ions.
What are nanoe ions, you may ask? They're tiny (nano-sized, duh) electrostatic atomized water particles invented by the smarties over at Panasonic. What do they do? Retain 1,000 times more moisture than a regular negative ion. OK, enough with the science lesson. Basically, the nanoes allow moisture to get deep into the hair shaft to hydrate and promote shine and smoothness.
With two speeds (high and low) and three temperatures (hot, warm, cool), the risk of burning yourself while styling is virtually eliminated. (Don't laugh, we've all done it.) Plus, for all you curly-haired gals out there, there's a detachable diffuser, concentrator, and quick-dry nozzle, so you're not stuck drying your hair all night.
We got to test out the Panasonic Nanoe Hair Dryer, and can we just say, "wow." Record hair-drying time and fancy flouncy hair. (OK, we had some professional help, but still.) Looked and felt great. Gotta hand it to those little nanoes.
