Back in November of 2017 I was scrolling down the interwebs and found this beautiful blowdryer on sale for just 20 bucks. I didn’t really have my own blowdryer, just one that my sister, mom and I shared, but I wanted one for myself. So, I ended up buying the Babyliss IPRO 2200 Blowdryer. Before I had this blowdryer I never used to use one to dry my hair. I just went to bed with wet hair and hoped for the best in the morning. However, ever since I have it I use it every day I know my hair won’t be in a bun the day after. So, I have been using it a lot and that means that I have enough experience with it now in order for me to write a proper review on it. So, without further ado, let’s get into it!
The Babyliss IPRO 2200 Blowdryer is quite a hefty piece. It’s fully black and does have a bit of a design going on on it, but not all that much. It’s pretty basic. It comes with a little cap on the front with a small opening, which I like to use when I want to blow my hair straight. I believe it also came with another nozzle, but I have lost it so I’m not sure about that anymore. I’m sorry!
Anyway, the blowdryer does look really pretty and professional in my opinion. It definitely feels like it’s a nice high quality product that will last you quite some time. On the other hand it does have a downside to it. The blowdryer is pretty hefty, which means that if you have either very long or thick hair -in other words: hair that takes a lot of time to dry- you will feel it in your arms. I honestly sometimes have to take a little break from blowdrying my hair just because it’s too heavy on my arms. And I don’t even have extremely long or thick hair!
Anyway, when working with a blowdryer a couple of things are important to me. I like it to be powerful, I don’t feel like blowdrying my hair for 6 hours, I like it to be pretty silent and I like it to have different options in terms of heat and how hard it will blow. This particular blowdryer does fulfil most of these things. The only thing it doesn’t live up to is the silent part. You guys, this blowdryer is a noisy one. I know that most of them are and that you have to get a really expensive one in order for it to be rather silent, but that’s why I’m okay with this blowdryer missing that point.

Having said that, let’s talk about the functions. The blowdryer has three different temperatures on it. It can blow cold air, warm and hot air. All three options are functional in some way. I like the cold function during the summer. The hot air will just make me sweat and therefore my hair will never become dry when I’d be using that. They also say that cold hair is better for fixating the hair, so if you do go a day without washing or making your hair wet, this cold hair function is definitely interesting for you. And side note: it’s also a lot better for your hair!
However, when it isn’t a million degrees outside I do prefer using the two hotter options. It depends on how quick I need my hair to be dry which one of the two I will end up using. It terms of the result I do think that the hottest option makes my hair the least frizzy and the cold function makes my hair look the most frizzy. My hair is pretty frizzy in general, so for me this is something to keep in mind while looking for a blowdryer. However, if your hair is really smooth naturally, this isn’t really important.
What I like about this blowdryer is that it actually dries my hair very quickly. I didn’t notice until recently, when I used the blowdryer at my boyfriends’ place, how quick this one is. When my hair is fully wet, like straight out of the shower wet, it will take 10 to 15 minutes to become fully dry. If it’s towel wet it will take only 5 to 10 minutes. I don’t know about you, but that’s pretty dang quick to me.
Overall I do really like this Babyliss IPRO 2200 Blowdryer. I never thought I’d be this excited about a blowdryer and I definitely didn’t think I’d ever review one, because it’s a tool I never used to use before I got this one. However, ever since I have it my hair has looked a lot more well taken care of an it just looks better all together. It’s an essential in my beauty routine right now and definitely a product I’ll take with me when I go on a holiday or whatever. It’s just a very professional looking and feeling blowdryer, with a lot of options that dries my hair very quickly, leaving it looking amazing!
And that concludes today’s post. I hope you enjoyed reading about my lovely blowdryer and be sure to let me know whether or not you like using blowdryers!
