I despise blow drying my hair. To subject myself to heat blowing directly at my head until my drippy strands are somehow dry—especially post-workout when I’m still sweating or on a hot summer day when the bathroom feels like a sauna—is less than appealing.
So, even though, you can classify me as an air-dry enthusiast through-and-through, I agreed to test one out only because this particular model, the Hai Stylset Ionic Hair Dryer, has aromatherapeutic benefits. Besides being powered by 1875 watts, the hairdryer emits a jasmine scent as you dry.
“We incorporated the jasmine scent because we wanted to elevate the user-experience on multiple levels,” says Kristen Collins, marketing manager of Hai Beauty Concepts. As I turn the dryer on—which, by the way, has a very intuitive, easy-to-flick switch—I start buzzing the product around my head, anticipating a luxurious multi-sensory experience.
It takes me a few seconds to realize I smell the jasmine, which is very subtle but a refreshing floral scent nonetheless. The slight sweet scent (which is often tapped in fragrances for its science-backed, mood-boosting benefits) adds just a touch of a spa-like feeling, which is a welcome respite to the mundane act of drying your hair. Oh, and it makes me feel like I’m going to go out into the world with not only nice, smooth (not frizzy!) strands but smellin’ fresh as a flower. Consider me a blow-drying convert—when jasmine is involved, that is.
