How to look ridiculous whilst drying ones locks...



Ready for a good chuckle? This little device makes The Beard chortle every time I attach it to my bonce. And I have to say -  it does look comical.

 

But. Oh! It does the job!! I snaffled this on eBay from this seller - but you can also search "hair dryer hood". 

 Although it is flimsy and I was worried about it melting, I have to say that it has not let me down. It is easy to use, store and it dries my hair nice and evenly. Without blowing it all over the place. And I can flick through a magazine with my free hand.

I have been relying on this for a few months now. A word to the wise. It does get VERY hot on the top of your head. And it will become dislodged if you use a high setting. So the low settting is in order with frequent blasts with the cooling button.

The elastic will is pretty standard and will fit most hair dryers.

Just be prepared to look a little daft. The things I do for curls!

  1. It does make you chuckle but I had considered getting one of these for traveling as I can not easily pack up my hooded dryer.

  4. I have argued with my curly/frizzy hair for many years, until I discovered setting lotion and finger waves that is! Now I wash it at night, apply lotion and wave with kirby grips...then sleep all night to wake up to lovely waved hair! (I can see why he laughs but it's worth it!!!)X

  5. My nana Jean used to have one of those! (Probably still does.) Far better than spending hours with damp, sticky hair.

  6. Teehee! Space age! This might be amazing for these cold winter nights when I do not want the slightest damp in my hair, let alone rag curls! Thanks for the tip! Zoë x

  7. It looks like you're about to perform oral sex on that little hoover thing from the Teletubbies. What's his name? Noo-noo.

  16. haha... how funny, I brought a hooded dryer last week! It's great for curly hair as I can't use a normal dryer. The only problem is you can't hear anything & it's toasty warm so I normally nod off!!! I'm like an old lady! x

  17. This picture made me snort! What a glamorous sight, tee hee!
    I was intending to get one of these for ages, but then my parents picked me up an 80's thing similar to this, in a case, which I am yet to try. might whip it out this arvo, and snap a pic too. Ha ha! xx

  18. Oh I need one of them. I always find it hard to dry my hair evenly all over and end up with on frizzy bit. Plus I want to use one (possibly with a face mask on) and scare the crap out of his Lordship mwhahahaha!

  20. Haha fantastico! I have an early '60s hood hair dryer thingy somewhere, I really should use it more often – even if just for the smile it gives me from mushroom head!
    It's interesting that yours dries your hair more evenly, quickly etc. I hadn't really thought of that before.

  21. Ahahahahaha, you have an elephant on your head! xx

  22. I have one of these, and I was pondering whether to post a picture of me using it. Hilarious aren't they, but they do the job so well! They get very hot though don't they?!

  23. Heh, great pic, I love it. I loathe blow drying, so what I could really do with is one of those no hands granny hoods. Or just a 24 hour stylist at my beck and call. I'd settle for that.

  24. he he, it does look a little funny but a small sacrifice to make for amazing hair. My hair gets very frizzy with the hairdryer, perhaps this is just what i need.

  25. Hahaha very funny but innovative! =)
