4. Panasonic NanoCare EH-CNA 98 | Ideal for those who with dry skin

The following figure shows the comparison between the texture of hair with and without using NanoCare for two weeks.
The dryness of the scalp causes dandruff, which can be improved by the use of NanoCare hair dryers. It is good for people with dry skin.

In addition, nanoe ions are also effective for the tightness of the hair cuticle. The surface of the hair cuticle is scaly; it opens with alkalinity, and closes with weakly acidity. After shampooing, the scales of the hair stratum corneum open, making it difficult to comb the hair. The nanoe ion has a weak acidity, so it can be tightly joined with the hair stratum corneum and smoothen the horny scales of the hair, making the hair smoother.

The reviews from the Japanese:

Female / 30’s ★★★★★
I use it every day while bathing and it feels completely different than the hair dryer I used to use. After drying the hair, the hair will become full and shiny; I cannot live without this hair dryer.

Female / 20’s ★★★★☆
I used to think that it was not worth spending money to buy a high-priced hair dryer, but later I couldn’t help buying because of so many good reviews. After using, I found: What is this? How can it be so smooth!
I have used a variety of shampoos so far, but they haven’t improved my hair quality at all! It isn’t shampoo. It is a NanoCare hair dryer! Thank you Panasonic!

Female / 20’s ★★★★☆
The hair is always smooth and glossy. Especially recommended for dry hair people.

Female / 50’s ★★★★☆
It is quick to dry!
Also, it’s light!
I feel the hair becomes nourishing by the NanoCare effect.
Although the price is worth considering, it will be worthwhile after it is actually used.

Male / 40’s ★★★★★
It is a replacement from the same series. The previous one broke down in 3 and half years, I think the hair dryer’s lifespan is 3 to 4 years, it is reasonable. For a while, I was using a cheap hair dryer which downgraded 2 or 3 ranked from Panasonic, but when I got accustomed to NanoCare, the wind blown by cheap hair dryer really feels cheap. Whether it is the texture of the wind, or the amount of wind, wind power, or even the wind temperature are completely different!
