I have been eying this beauty for a very long time now. I planned to take the plunge during Sephora’s VIB sale, but found it on Groupon a couple weeks before. I snapped that deal up and now I actually look forward to drying my hair.
The T3 comes with some pretty lofty promises. According to the company, the Featherweight 2 Dries hair 64% faster than other dryers. It definitely dries my hair faster, but I wouldn’t say 64%. My hair is fine and dries pretty quickly to begin with, so this may be true for people with thicker hair.
73% reduction in frizz. Absolutely. Typically after blow drying, I am left with a frizzy mess, and I have to run a flat iron through my hair to smooth everything out. With the Featherweight 2, my hair dries almost frizz free, and I only need a few swipes the flat iron through afterwards. This is where I notice the most time-saving, as I spend less time straightening. Plus, and less straightening means less damage!
– 86% increase in body. Nope. Not even close. Like I said, I have pretty fine hair, so I need to use product in my hair to keep volume throughout the day. For a couple days, I used no product to style my hair, just the blow dryer and flat iron. My hair fell flat pretty quickly. When combined with my usual products, maybe my hair looks a bit fuller. But definitely not 86%.
19% increase in shine. Yes. 19% isn’t a huge amount, but this dryer definitely makes my hair shinier and healthier, overall.
33% increase in comb-ability. I would agree with this. Overall, my hair is softer and more manageable, so it doesn’t tangle as much.
48% increase in style retention. I’ll give the T3 this one. My hair does hold style and volume better. I still need to use all the most of products I did with other dryers in order to maintain my style throughout the day.
Overall, I am really happy with the T3. I’ve had it for about a month now, and my hair is softer and noticeably healthier. Split ends has always been an issue for me, but I am definitely noticing improvement in that department. I know the condition of my hair will keep improving over time, and while the T3 doesn’t necessarily live up to all it’s claims, it is still one fantastic dryer!
The T3 Featherweight 2 can be purchased from Sephora for $200.
