Ascending Butterfly Holidays Buying Guide 2010, Eighteenth Giveaway sponsored by:

Holiday parties are in full swing right now, and soon we will be preparing for the biggest party night of the year, New Year's Eve! Whether it will be sunny or snowy where you are, if you are anything like me, that is the night of the year you want to create hair 'magic'.
Not so easy to do with the wrong tools! Professional Blow Outs are super pricey, not to mention trying to get a holiday appointment is not so easy. You usually have to book well in advance! Whether it's a last minute invite or plans you made in advance, you want your hair perfect for the big night.

They say how you usher in the New Year is indicative of what the year will be like. So why not go the extra mile to make sure you have every single hair in place?

I know I will! I'm currently growing out layers and my hair is super long now. My drugstore hair dryer was on it's last legs and I was actively starting the process of researching a new one. (I knew that sound of a jet engine starting up and sputtering was a tell tale sign it was time for a new dryer).

Lava Flo - 1875 Ergo Ionic Dryer

I have to admit the packaging and the blower just yell 'high end salon', you know the one with the fancy chairs, lots of mirrors and sleek interior. The one you have to clamor for an appointment to get inside of. In fact I'm sure many of you recognize this dryer because it more than likely is the one your hairdresser uses! My drugstore blower which has now been retired can't compare to this one. It literally runs circles around my old one. First of all, long hair girls know full well just how 'hot' certain dryers get as you go along. So you'd have to turn them off for a bit, let them cool so you could get back to work. I was so happy that this one did not overheat, and while it is no light weight, it's a quality blower, it didn't require me to weight train before using it! And even though my hair is much longer than I normally keep it, it didn't take any longer with this new dryer, it was actually less time to blow it out from wet to dry!


Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Innovative Far-Infrared rays quickly penetrate hair to gently dry from the inside out, reducing heat damage while retaining moisture.
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - 2 speeds/3 Heats including “Synthetic Hair” mode
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Ergonomically contoured handle with cushioned grip
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Continuous Negative Ion generating system
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Far-Infrared heat dries hair 3 times faster
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Ideal temperature setting for styling synthetic hair extensions
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Tourmaline airflow restores shine and controls static

And for the Tech Side, Lava Tech!

I don't know about you, but my inner frugalista loves finding ways to get MORE for LESS. When it comes to our tresses, it's the one place we hate being a spend thrift, even if we are on a budget. But when you get styling power AND versatility, in ONE product, you should definitely jump on it!


Creates a variety of trendy styles. Tourmaline and Lava Ceramics combine for superior conditioning and performance on all hair types.


Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Four 1” rotating Lava Ceramic plates: Curved, Straightening, Waving and Crimping
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Tourmaline conditioning • Quick 60 second heat-up
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Power indicator light • Non slip thumb rest
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Removable styling barrels for easy cleaning
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - 9-ft swivel cord • ETL listed

My Take

I love both the blower and the 4-in-1 styling tool! This blow dryer definitely dries my hair faster, which saves me time, and as we both know time is money! And the longer my hair gets, the earlier I usually have to get up to make sure it is totally dry, especially in winter. I'm very happy to get the same amount of sleep, and still get out the door on time! And the shiny, healthy looking tresses are a major BONUS!

The 4-in-1 styling tool is fantastic, I can create soft waves and get just the right amount of wave or curl on days I want to wear it curly, and when I want to wear my hair sleek and straight it handles it well too. And the pivot cord is genius, HELLO, where have you been all my life?
