Fine, thinning, frizz – our hair can cause us issues especially post Menopause.
Our hair is supposed to be our crowning glory but for me, if I had one wish it would be to have a daily hair stylist visit and do my hair!!!
If my hair looks good, then I feel good!
During and post menopause as Estrogen levels fell I found that my hair has become drier, thinner and difficult to style without a lot of product and time. I also found it was starting to fall out and it just didn’t feel or look healthy despite taking supplements for skin, nail and hair. Estrogen promotes hair growth, density and fullness so the days I have to style my hair have become even more of a chore and is usually a hit and miss as to what it looks like when styled.
I’ve not intentionally gone grey but I stopped having foils about 18 months ago and I’m back to my natural colour but Grey hair can be coarse and difficult to maintain. I had also had foils for a number of years which dry out the hair and keeping it in good condition, healthy and shiny became a mission. Life is too short to be taking hours to style hair.
A few months ago I was asked to try the Zuvi Halo Dryer. At first, I declined as I was having health issues at the time, but I’m so pleased they approached me again. I had seen some other reviews and was eager to try the new way of drying and styling my hair.
The Zuvi Halo Dryer has won several awards, including the Allure’s Best of Beauty 2023: Breakthrough Awards so I was eager to test it out and see if the hype was true.
I workout and run daily so in Summer, especially, I will wash my hair almost daily. I need a dryer that will do the job without the heat damaging my hair.
So why is the Zuvi Halo Dryer different to other hair dryers?
When I opened the pack I was impressed with the sleek, light-weight design. I was also intrigued by the concept of Zuvi Halo’s LightCare™ technology. How could light dry and style my hair? Well it does! The Zuvi Halo uses light to dry only the water droplets on the surface of your hair, protecting your hair’s internal moisture for healthier hair.
Because it dries at a lower temperature it is perfect for those of us with sensitive scalps, compared to traditional hair dryers which use extreme heat to dry your hair. You are basically “baking” and overdrying your hair and scalp, leading to dryness and damage.
Their website suggests that Zuvi Halo is engineered for hair health, to help you maintain the internal moisture of your hair cortex, resulting in stronger, healthier hair with added shine and smoothness.
How do I use the Zuvi Halo Hair Dryer?
The Zuvi Halo Hair Dryer has four modes CARE FAST SOFT STYLE and SMOOTH each with a different heat setting. There are three attachments – a styling concentrator, a diffuser to reduce frizz and a gentle hair attachment for those of us with sensitive scalps. You pick a setting that is right for you. I usually use FAST to dry my hair and then STYLE or GENTLE with the concentrate attachment to style my hair. I did try the diffuser with some product for a beach curls look which will be perfect for the Summer months ahead.
Even without using any styling products, the Zuvi Halo Hair Dryer produced a sleek salon result with lots of body! It feels so soft and I feel a million dollars. (I’ve also tried it using product for a more formal style).
Final thoughts on the Zuvi Halo Hairdryer
I have to admit I was sceptical at first but after using the Zuvi Halo a few times I love it. My hair is soft and shiny and I think I achieved a salon look.
One thing I need to point out is that this dryer, although it has 4 different modes, has a very powerful air flow with only one speed option, so it took me a couple of times to get used to the speed. The Zuvi Halo is designed not to rely on extreme temperatures, but to combine wind and low heat in order to avoid heat damage. If you a looking for a gentler airflow, use the SOFT mode paired with the Gentle Air attachment. This will further diffuse air and result in a smoother experience.
The Zuvi Halo Hair Dryer is not cheap but I look at it as investment which is helps my hair stay healthy and look good and aren’t you worth the investment? I would definitely treat myself or perhaps as a birthday gift from the family. I’d love to get one for my daughter.
A huge positive for me is that the style holds much longer between washes. I’ve tested the hair dryer’s ability to maintain the style by exercising and leaving my hair without washing (unless it really needs it after a run) and I find each morning the style just needs a comb through. As someone who has always had trouble maintaining the style because of my thin hair this is a huge bonus for me.
