questionsdo they still make blow dryers with attachments?


I should add that it was certainly a name brand. I don't generally buy things if I don't recognize the maker. I had it in the early eighties, which means that some of you were not yet born.


Conair still makes several versions with attachments but I haven't seen one with all the attachments that you have described. Several I have seen are more stylers -

While others are more dryer -

I try not to use my dryer as I don't pay attention and I am always getting my hair sucked into the dang thing (I have hair down to my waist).


Haven't scoured the net to find anything yet...but I know the exact dryer you mentioned! My Husband had one years ago and he loved it, because the air came out of the side it was like using a rather bulky hair-brush and it straightened his curly hair like no other.


@colonelpuffpuff: Oh. My. You have my gratitude, and thank you. The item I wanted was your first link. Apparently I needed to search for styler instead of dryer, all this time.

Thank you, and it's already on the way.

Did I remember to say thank you? Thank you!


Vidal Sassoon also still makes this type - for reasons I don't quite understand, they tend to be marketed more towards men. Here's the VS one:

I don't have this exact thing but I do have other Vidal Sassoon hair care appliances and the ones I have have proved to be great quality (read: they work well and they last many years).


@kalaharinight: I've found that one before. It's marketed towards men (and people with short hair) because it tangles in long hair. Ow!


@shrdlu: You're welcome. I really had no idea the there were ones that blow out the side. I have had mine for eons and haven't gone looking at new ones for a long while. So, thank you, as I learned something new today.


@Shrdlu: I can't find your "vote me down" question! I respectfully bowed out on the idea, since you made the declaration first :)

I'm guessing you must have just not been on since the Downvote has come in to effect or you changed your mind for fear of rep recourse (which as I type this, I realize may actually be a wise decision).

Either way, if you DO create it, invoke my name so I can come contribute.


@drchops: Oh, no, we had you-know-who that did it for us. I had no idea someone was so universally loathed, that he'd continually get voted down on everything he did. He seems to be enjoying it, actually, since he's going out of his way to invite more of it.

Take a look over on Fresh; there's a couple of opportunities right there. In addition, I understand some folks have been searching out older things he'd posted (and commented upon) in order to downvote those, too.

I was late to this game this morning (strangely enough, I have a life), and it was already well under way before I started playing.

I should remind you that it's only luck I saw this, since I have notify if mentioned turned off.
