‘Tis the season to shop! Holiday gifting doesn’t have to break the bank, but there are some splurges that I think are absolutely worth every penny! Case in point: VOLO Go Cordless Hair Dryer.
VOLO Go is the world’s first cordless, infrared hair dryer and the healthiest heat styling tool in your arsenal.
VOLO Go Cordless Hair Dryer
Cordless and infrared: think of these like your haircare PB & J. They’re meant to be.
The VOLO Go is a salon quality hair dryer that’s three times as energy-efficient as a traditional blow dryer thanks to the industry’s most innovative infrared heat technology. VOLO Go’s infrared heat is incredibly gentle on hair, drying each strand quickly and efficiently with radiant heat.
Traditional hair dryers use nichrome wire to deliver the heat. This kind of heat is called convection— the same type that you might find in your toaster. The VOLO Go infrared bulb delivers radiant heat which efficiently penetrates into the thickest of hair while using lower temperature and leaves hair smooth and shiny. It’s what the brand says is their ‘secret sauce’ for healthier heat styling!
How does the VOLO Go hair dryer reduce heat damage?
By using infrared heat, the VOLO Go dries at a lower temperature, and dries your hair evenly from the inside out. Traditional dryers heat the air around the hair rather than the hair itself, so the outside of your strand is exposed to excess heat before the entire strand is dry all the way through. Because of the infrared heat used in the VOLO Go, it avoids this excess damage (thereby leaving your hair strands with a smoother texture overall and less frizz!)
But that’s not all! VOLO Go also features a Smart Mode which modulates the heat output as your hair dries to use less heat overall and thus eliminate excess heat exposure. This essentially switches through the hot and warm settings on your dryer for you, significantly minimizing unnecessary heat exposure for your hair. Smart Mode is automatically activated when you turn your dryer on. The brand is all about helping us take care of our hair when it’s wet and most fragile!
After you are done drying, there’s a cool shot feature for blasting the hair with cold air to seal the cuticles and cut down on frizz.
Each VOLO Go cordless hair dryer comes with a concentrator, charging station and neoprene carrying case. The dryer charging station has an in-laid dish for jewelry or hair accessories, and also features a USB port on its charging base so that you can charge other devices (like your phone) at the same time.
My experience with VOLO Go Dryer
It usually takes me about 7-10 minutes to completely dry my hair with a regular blowdryer, and Volo Go dryer takes the same amount of time to get the job done for me.
But the BIG difference here is that it truly minimizes the heat damage and my hair isn’t a puffy, frizzy mess after blow drying….and that’s a huge plus for me! While drying my hair with VOLO Go, I could tell that the heat was very gentle as compared to my traditional blow dryer and it never felt excessively hot on my hair (or skin!) And yet, it dried my hair completely in the same amount of time which makes it a clear winner in my book!
Not to mention, the dryer is cordless which makes it so convenient to use anywhere!
Undoubtedly, VOLO Go dryer is a fantastic heat styling tool but it is quite expensive at $450. Is it worth it though?
Well, if you style your hair with hot tools regularly AND are tired of blow dryers causing dry, frizzy hair, this one is worth the investment to keep your hair healthier. Considering that this blow dryer uses infrared heat that causes minimal damage, and its Smart Mode helps optimize the temperature during drying process, this dryer will save your hair from unnecessary heat damage.
Not only is it much gentle on your hair, but is also energy efficient and lets you cut the cord on blow-drying. So, if you are looking to splurge this holiday season, this is a gift with years of satisfaction built in (and one that you or your loved ones will actually put to use!)
VOLO Beauty also has a plush Hero Hair Towel ($39) made of extra plush Nanoweave™ material that’s super-soft and absorbent.
The towel has won Allure’s Best of Beauty Award two years in a row! You’ll love how it gently absorbs water from wet hair (decreasing dry time by 50%) and features a unique snug strap that keeps the towel secure and it’s so light you’ll forget you’re even wearing it.
The brand is all about helping us take care of our hair when it’s wet and most fragile! Peace out, frizz.
