The Key Features on the Elchim 3900 Healthy Ionic Ceramic Hair Dryer
You certainly can’t complain much about a hair dryer that is powered by a somewhat quiet Italian made AC motor. That means you get an efficient motor that will last a very long time with this hair dryer.
It also offers those that use it very versatile speed and temperature choices. The Elchim 3900 has three different temperature settings and 2 airflow speeds to choose from. That means each person that owns it can tailor their hair drying experience top meet their own needs.
This product rounds out nicely when you factor in its cools hot button, stylish design and the fact you get a full lifetime warranty with it.
Why This Dryer Model Works Well on Fine Hair
There are three reasons that we really feel this hair dryer is perfect for fine hair despite its high power.
Here they are:
- Ceramic inner coating
Hair dryers that have ceramic coatings on their inner working parts including the heater tend to be very gentle on hair. This is because the heat they produce is spread evenly throughout the stream of air that a hair dryer emits.
- Negative ion technology
Negative ion technology has a host of benefits including getting rid of static electricity (makes your hair harder to style) and breaking down the size of water molecules so it takes much less heat to dry your damp hair.
- Far infrared heat
Heat that is generated by far infrared means tends to be among the gentlest types of heat you can apply to your hair. That is because it safely heats hair from the inside out. It’s the type of heat that thin hair loves to have applied to it.
Areas That Could Use Improvement with Elchim 3900 Healthy Hair Dryer
This hair dryer tends to be a bit bulky as far as its weight distribution goes. It’s not that it is big because it is more of a medium to small style hair dryer at 7.1 x 8.5 x 3.5 inches. The thing is all the power that has gone into it puts its weight around 1 ½ pounds. What makes it feel bulky is all that weight is concentrated in the motor area so it’s not evenly balanced.
Another negative with the Elchim 3900 is the fact that it has a very good diffuser attachment that is made for it. The reason it’s a negative is it does not come included in the package (although a concentrator does. This is a higher priced hair dryer so it would not have been asking too much to simply include the diffuser in the package.
I would be very hard for hard for anyone to argue that this is not a really good hair dryer. Especially if you have fine hair with all the protection it can offer you. It is a little bulky but most people will willingly trade that for all of the power and other features this professional hair dryer has built into it. When you look at things such as its far-infrared heat, ceramic inner coatings and negative ion technology you just have to say wow. If you have thin hair it should definitely be on your short list of new hair dryers you are seriously considering buying.
