BARBAR Ceramic ECO 8000 Hair Dryer Review/Giveaway-CLOSED



It is absolutely no secret that I am an eco-nut. I love to support the environment any way I can. When I first heard about an eco-friendly hair dryer I thought it was a little strange and too good to be true. After visiting BARBAR and reading about the Ceramic ECO 8000, I now know that it is great and true.



What makes this hair dryer eco-friendly you ask?
*The Barbar ECO 8000 Blow Dryer uses the latest in technology by having an eco-friendly ceramic heating element (as opposed to all standard dryers that have a coil heating element)

*The difference is use of electricity & output of radiation. The ECO 8000 has 5.0 mG (milligauss) output radiation. A standard 1,800 WATT dryer has over 200.0 mG! This amount of mG is comparable to the radiation output of a microwave.

*The ceramic heating element lasts 5x longer than a coil heating element.

*The ceramic heating element uses 90% electricity, turning it into heat. No energy is wasted, but saved.

*The coil heating element wastes electricity because it doesn't use it, thus turning it into radiation. Unused electricity turns into radiation!

*The BARBAR ECO 8000 is truly eco-friendly; everything a blow dryer should be and much more.


What did I think of it?
I loved the fact that it had multiple settings to allow me to use it with hot air or colder air. I also really like that there is a button that allows for all cool air (no heat). This would be so nice in the summer to dry your hair or your swimsuit. We all know that putting on a wet suit is awful. I, myself, do not dry my swimsuits in the dryer. With this dryer, you could safely and easily dry your suit without any heat to damage the delicate fabric.

I also LOVE LOVE LOVE that this dryer dried all of my hair in about 3 minutes. I don't have a massive amount of hair but 3 minutes is awesome. I call that eco-time friendly!! The cord is super long, which is great and there are two attachments that come with the ECO 8000 that allow you to blow dry sections of hair easier.

The only draw back to this dryer (but could also be a plus) is it's weight. It is a little heavy. I used it after my workout shower and my arms were like jello. I didn't have a hard time holding it up but it was making my muscles even more sore. Think about it as being eco-friendly AND helping you get ready for tank top season!

This bad boy retails for $150 but since it lasts 5 times longer than conventional blow dryers, I would call this a steal! I have had my crappy old ionic hair dryer for about 7 years now and I am pretty sure I paid about $30 for it. It doesn't do it's job very well and it is hot to the touch (something I didn't experience with the BARBAR ECO 800. Think about it this way.....if you buy this dryer and use it for, say, 10 years then you are really only paying $15/year to use this amazing tool. Thats just over $1 a month!! BONUS!!

How would you like to win this beauty? All I ask that you do is visit BARBAR and pick out another product of theirs that you would like to own. Come back here and leave that item for me in a comment.
