4 Top Recommended Hair Dryers in Japan | Choose the one that suits you best!

The function of hair dryer is simple, to literally dry wet hair. Nowadays, there is a wide variety of hair dryers with value-added functions sold on the market. However, most people do not know what benchmark should be considered when choosing their own hair dryer.

Since it is used every day, it is important to choose a hair dryer that suits your hair and lifestyle. From international brands Panasonic “NanoCare” series to Dyson, Sharp, Tescom, Koizumi, Nobb, etc., they have recently launched hair dryers providing functions such as air volume, temperature, overseas correspondence, as well as negative ions and, the price is also incredible.
We believe that many people will wonder: How should we choose? Therefore, the Discovery Japan editorial department would like to introduce 4 top recommended hair dryers in Japan and the points you want to check when choosing a hair dryer that suits you best.

Now, we will introduce 4 popular hair dryers in ranking format for your reference.

1. Panasonic NanoCare EH-NA 99 | Ideal for those who with long hair and lots of hair

Panasonic’s “NanoCare” series hair dryer is the most satisfactory in terms of price and function in Japan. Panasonic’s “NanoCare” series hair dryer can release a large amount of nanoe ions in an instant. When nanoe ions are blown onto the hair together with the warm air, it can eliminate static electricity, quickly smooth out the damaged hair cuticle, reduce hair blemishes, and your fingers can pass through the hair smoothly. As a result, the hair will become silky smooth and easy to comb, it’s perfect for people with long hair and lots of hair!

Nanoe ions have a moisturizing effect and can penetrate into the stratum corneum of the hair with the small water droplet attached to the surface of the hair after shampooing. It functions to lock in moisture and keep the hair moist and supple, as well as easy to comb. In addition, nanoe ions can eliminate static electricity, quickly smooth hair cuticle, make hair become silky smooth and shiny.

It is worth mentioning that this hair dryer has a “Scalp” mode function, which blows the scalp with just warm air instead of overheated wind that may hurt the scalp.
In addition, there is a “Smart Temperature Control” function that automatically adjusts the supply air temperature based on the surrounding room temperature. In the upcoming hot summer days, you probably do not have to be sweaty during blowing hair! What has to be highlighted is the newly added “Hair Tip Care” mode function, in which warm air and cold air are automatically blown out alternately to give comfort to the scalp while reducing the dryness of the tip of hair. This mode is set in the “Care” position, so you can easily keep your hair tip moist by simply pressing it.

The followings are the reviews from the Japanese. On the whole, this hair dryer has won great praise!

3. SHARP Plasma Cluster Scalp Esthetic IB-HX 9K | Ideal for those who with thinning hair

After drying the hair, attach “Scalp Claw Attachment” to the body of the hair dryer, just by sliding the scalp and massaging it can not only loosen the tight and stiff scalp, the high concentration plasma cluster ions are also beneficial to the scalp and can keep the scalp environment comfortable. The plasma cluster ions retain the moisture of the scalp, suppress dandruff and itching, and increase the sense of volume of the hair by making the root plump.

The reviews from the Japanese:

Male / 30’s ★★★★★
It feels good to dry the hair with the scalp claw attachment, and the scalp seems to be better than natural drying.

Male / 70’s ★★★☆☆
The grip part was hard to use. If you hold it, you will push a button somewhere.

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!

Yoshino Cherry

  • The most common cherry blossom in Japan, which is a species developed by a gardener in Edo (Tokyo) in the 19th century.

【最新】2018年 ・ 桜開花日預測

 

Source:https://sakura.weathermap.jp/#sakura_about_box

~~~*~~~*~~~*~~~*~~~*~~~*~~~*~~~*~~~*~~~*~~~*~~~

Sakura blossom is coming!!

According to weathermap updated on 3/13, Japan’s cherry blossoms will bloom earlier this year!!

On the “First Bloom”, buds start to open and it takes about a week to reach “full bloom”. “Full bloom” means when more than 80% of buds of sakura trees become open. At that time, the cherry blossoms are the most beautiful!

“Sakura Blowing Snow” is about 5 days after the “Full Bloom”. You can see the pink cherry petals falling in the wind. A flurry of cherry blossoms blown in the wind is really romantic.

Really can’t wait to see it ^^

~~~*~~~*~~~*~~~*~~~*~~~*~~~*~~~*~~~*~~~*~~~*~~~

春暖花開,根據weathermap 3/13更新,日本今年的櫻花將比往年提早開花呢~ 好期待喔^^

  • 提提您:
  • 「開花日」只是櫻花花苞開始綻放,大概在「開花日」後的5~7天左右就是櫻花的「滿開日」,那時候櫻花八分開是最美的!!
  • 「櫻吹雪」則在「滿開日」後5天左右,那時就可以看到漫天粉紅櫻花花瓣隨風飄落呢~
    光是想想就已經覺得很浪漫了^^

在漫天粉紅浪漫櫻花季來臨之前,現在正是日本梅花盛開之時。
但你又懂得分辨出同樣都是粉粉的梅花、桃花、櫻花之間的差異嗎? 以下一圖簡單為你辨析唷~

Do you know what are the differences between plum blossom, peach blossom and cherry blossom?

 

Source: @TECHNOuchi Twitter

 

梅花:花瓣前端為圓型,一截枝幹上只有一朵,沒有花梗,顏色最深,也有白色。

桃花:花瓣前端較尖,一截枝幹上有對稱的的兩朵,花梗非常短,只有粉紅色。

櫻花:花瓣前端有分裂,一截枝幹上有多朵,花梗較長,除了粉紅色,也有白色。

下次來日本賞花時不妨試試看喔~~

 

Plum blossom: The front of the petals is round. There is only one branch on a branch and there is no pedicel,the color is the deepest, it also has white color.

Peach blossom: The front of the petals is more pointed. There are two symmetrical flowers on a branch, and the pedicel is very short, only has pink color.

Cherry blossom: The front part of the petals is divided, there are many flowers on one branch and the peduncle is longer, besides pink, it also has white color.

Let’s go to Japan and make use of this skill〜〜
