Super Solano Professional Hair Dryer 1875 Watt Review
The Solano Supersolano hair dryer is well respected by salon professionals for its sturdy construction and superb reliability. This blow dryer will give you excellent performance at a mid-range price.
Original Solano Super Solano Professional Hair Dryer – Model 232
Originally designed and developed for rigorous salon use, the Super Solano Professional hair dryer has proved to be one of the most popular hair dryers ever sold amongst home users as well.
It’s not difficult to see why it’s been so successful either. This is a blow dryer designed with one main purpose in mind – to give you perfect results every time. Let’s start our review of the Super Solano Professional hair dryer by looking at the design.
Design Features Of The Supersolano
This hair dryer is designed to withstand all the knocks and bumps of daily use. The body is solidly constructed, and finished with a special high gloss coating which is scratch resistant. The gloss finish also means that the Super Solano Professional hair dryer is extremely easy to keep clean.
All the controls and switches on the unit are placed exactly where you need them to be. For example, the heat and speed adjustment controls are located on the side of the ergonomically designed handle so you can easily adjust them with your thumb mid-flow.
Another often under-rated benefit of the Super Solano Professional hair dryer is that it comes with an extra long eleven and a half foot (or 3.5 meters) power cord. This is almost double the cord length found on other hair dryers, so you never need to be tied to a power socket again!
This Super Solano Professional hair dryer is available in a choice of two color finishes – Red (model 232K) or Black (model 232B).
At the heart of the unit is a 1875 Watt long life AC motor, which is gyroscopically balanced to reduce vibration and minimize noise. Although lightweight, this motor is capable of producing extremely high airflow and this helps to greatly reduce drying time.
Looking at the heat generation system, the Super Solano Professional hair dryer is built around a ceramic heating coil. This coil emits infra-red heat energy to naturally dry off your hair from the inside outwards. In front of the heater is a thermal ceramic grill which regulates the heat output, ensuring that the temperature you’ve selected always remains constant and doesn’t vary.
Embedded within the heating element are crystals of Tourmaline, which are generally only used in high-end professional dryers. These Tourmaline crystals help to give the air flowing out of the nozzle a strong negative charge, reducing static and helping to keep your hair smooth. Tourmaline is also great at preventing those dreaded “fly away” moments.
Heat & Speed Modes
This model has two settings for speed and three levels of heat, so you have complete control over the output. Another added benefit of the Super Solano Professional hair dryer is the cold shot feature. Just press the cold shot button on the handle, and you’ll get a jet of cooler air which is perfect for finishing your style off or fixing product.
Dimensions Of The Super Solano Professional Hair Dryer
The product dimensions of the Super Solano Professional hair dryer (Model 232) are 9.1 by 8.2 by 3.5 inches, making it quite a compact professional unit. Looking at weight, the Super Solano Model 232 weighs just 21 ounces (595 grams or 1.31 pounds) so it is one of the more lightweight dryers in its class that we’ve reviewed.
Safety & Hygiene Features
With all haircare products, hygiene is really important. Externally, the body and casing of the Super Solano Professional hair dryer has a smooth glossy finish which is easy to wipe clean. Internally, the element and core components are coated with a special nano silver finish which prevents bacterial growth. Another nice touch is the fact that this Super Solano Professional hair dryer has a removable filter which can be taken out and cleaned in under 30 seconds.
All types of blow dryers produce electromagnetic fields (or EMF) when used. For your safety, the Supersolano model 232 has been specially shielded and benefits from having a particularly low EMF emission rating.
Solano prides itself on being an extremely ethical organization, and this Super Solano Professional hair dryer is fully certified as being made under strict ethical standards. In fact, Solano certifies that no child labor is used in the production of this hair dryer.
Within this Supersolano Model 232 package, there are two fiberglass concentrator nozzles included.
One of these concentrator attachments is especially narrow and used for precise straightening and styling. The second nozzle is wider, and designed for those occasions where you need to dry your hair really quickly.
