I love love the design and the performance of these products. I did wish it had a handle so it can be easier to carry. Makes traveling and getting along with your hair much more easier. The little iron is also just perfect for my bangs!!!
I received the mini version of this dryer and couldn't love it more. I t dries my long hair in record time and makes my hair silky soft. In fact, I'm tempted to use it as my full time hair dryer!
Mini tools that work like full-size
These are fantastic tools that work as well as full-size. The hair drier is actually hotter than my full-size revlon. I have to straighten my hair and it looked better after I styled it with this travel one than with my usual.
Compact, Cute, and Effective
Unlike some other reviewers, I had no problem with the attachments to the dryer: they fit and worked fine. The straightener is tiny tiny, but I only use it for my (very thick) bangs and it works great. In fact, it works even better with wet/damp hair. The bag itself looks small but holds a ton of stuff. I've started using it for all my toiletries for the gym, plus the dryer and straightener.
The colorful print is not my taste, otherwise I'd be tempted to use the bag as a cute clutch!
Great for travel or the gym
I really like the size of this set. This travel hair dryer is powerful, the oil is great like any hair oil, and the mini flat iron is mini.... Good for touch ups, not my whole head - I have shoulder length hair. The price was high but I used some birchbox points and do love the hair dryer, so I am satisfied.
Worst. Thing. Ever.
I was super thrilled about finally getting a travel sized hair dryer + diffuser. Normally when it comes down to packing, I have to decide on running shoes or being able to diffuse my hair. The latter always wins.
I decided to take this for a test run this morning and brought it to my gym.
- The diffuser is weird. I don't know how to explain it, but it won't naturally lift up my hair and diffuse underneath it, though that may just be a tradeoff with size.
- The diffuser will not stay on. At all. Both me and my friend were extremely puzzled, and I was going to check the manual incase there is a magical way to put it on that I'm unaware of but...
- It broke. I'll try turning it on when I get home, but the smell it produced was not at all promising.
Glad this held up for 10 minutes. If it hadn't died, I would list the obvious pros of size and convenience, but all I can say is I'm glad I didn't take this on a trip because I would have had to purchase a new hair dryer in order to avoid looking like a wet rat for a weekend.
While this mini dryer is powerful and cute, my diffuser won't stay attached. I only use dryers with a diffuser because of my curly hair. This one seemed perfect for travel. But now I am extremely disappointed. I will update this if/when this gets resolved. But right now 'thumbs down'
Great little product
Perfectly sized for travel, whether it is the gym, the office or the trip to paradise. Love this little set!
Super Cute and Professional tools!
I have the full sized Amika tools and this go go set. I love it! The blow dryer is so nice, better than the junk in hotels, I don't want to fry my hair on vacay. The styler is perfect to make curls! LOVE the bag and the oil is amaze-balls!
I'm in LOVE!!
Traveling for work and having long (down to my waist), thick, naturally wavy hair makes it tricky to pack light. Hotel hair dryers, if you want to call them 'dryers', never seemed to work well for me, it would take me at least 30 to 45 minutes to even get my hair dry; then tack on another 20 minutes to get the flat iron through it and you have me rushing like a mad woman to get out of the hotel & find my way to a client site.
After 4 business trips & having to wear my hair wavy & mostly wet in 30 degree weather, and you had me searching for any travel dryer that was small enough to pack but could stand up against my hair. I searched for another few weeks, and purchased a CHI travel dryer, paying $120.00 for it. It worked okay, but not much better than any of the hotel dryers, but I kept on with it. Finally I got fed up with taking so much time to get my hair dry & started getting Birchbox. After being happy with the other Amika products that came in my boxes, I decided to suck it up & purchase this combo. Needless to say I LOVE LOVE LOVE this kit!
I've used the concentrater and the diffuser, both are amazing! It works better than my full size CHI dryer & it's so light! The flat iron is great too, but with the length of my hair I typically bring my full size iron, I still bring the mini iron to touch up my bangs, when I wear my hair curly or pull it back.
It is totally worth the money & I have thought about buying another one just to have a spare!
