Optic

Optically the hairdryer is kept white and the head, as well as the dust filter is pink gold.

Handling

The hairdryer is easy to use and due to the long cable one is not directly connected to a socket, but with a length of approx. 2.5 metres it is a bit too long.

The Philips hairdryer is gentle in use

Two rubber studs are attached to the sides to give the hairdryer support when it is put down. This means that the hairdryer can also be placed on narrower trays.

Between the handle and the cable there is an eyelet for hanging the hairdryer.

The DryCare Prestige hairdryer has the special function of using a sensor to determine the hair temperature and to reduce the heat as soon as the hair becomes drier.

With this function the hairdryer dries the hair the fastest and most gently.

The button makes sure that a sensor measures the hair moisture and gently dries the hair

This function is activated by means of a slide button on the back of the handle and a violet control lamp lights up on the side.

If you use the protection function, a violet lamp on the side of the hairdryer will start to glow

If necessary, you can also adjust the air flow manually in two stages and the temperature in three stages, as well as blow-dry cold if you keep the cold air button permanently pressed. However, the air is cooler than at the other temperature levels, but lukewarm rather than cold.

While the unit is switched on, a ceramic component inside the hairdryer emits ions that prevent the hair from electrifying and ensure a good hold.

Questions

2019-09-18
Is it normal that the hairdryer with the Moisture Protect and in the gently dry mode constantly slows down the speed and then starts up again?
AskGeorge.com
The fact that the sensor constantly measures and adjusts the temperature and air turbulence means that the heat emitted and the air speed can change noticeably.
2019-09-18
Is the cold level really cold?
AskGeorge.com
The cold stage is colder than the other temperature stages, but not quite cold, but rather lukewarm.
2019-09-18
Amazon only mentions the weight including packaging, what is the weight of the device?
AskGeorge.com
Without attachments the hairdryer weighs 760g.
