Default Hard vs. Soft Bonnet Hair Dryers

Hey ladies...for those who rollerset or wet wrap and sit under a dryer, which do you prefer, and why? I like my current soft bonnet dryer, but I'm not sure if it dries my hair as quickly as a hard bonnet. All opinions are welcome

Default Re: Hard vs. Soft Bonnet Hair Dryers

Since I was 10 years old I have always had a soft bonnet dryer. Back then it was because I did not have to sit still for so long, now, well, I guess it's for the same reason. However, when feel like spending some extra money, I will buy a hard dryer for conditioning and for styles that the soft bonnet may not be good for.

I prefer the hard bonnet simply because I've never tried a soft bonnet and don't plan to.

I chose soft bonnet because that's what I have at home. However, it takes me longer under a soft bonnet then a hard one.

I've got a soft bonnet dryer because I enjoy the portability. It's also much easier to store. Maybe one day I'll get a hard bonnet if the soft bonnet doesn't continue to work out for me.

Since I can't sit still for long periods of time, I looove my Ionic Soft Bonnet Dryer! It dries my hair in 45 minutes ( I also use the largest rollers I can - currently 3" Light Green ones). The only thing is I can't do my conditioning treatments with it. So I use a conditioning heat cap for that.

I had a soft bonnet, but it's with my inlaws. It takes a long time for my hair to dry under one. So for now, I'm using my hard hat.

That's what it looks like but it's by Ion. I bought it at Sally's for around $30.

If you do a search under "Ion Soft Bonnet Dryer" JetCityGirl (I think that's who it was) posted a photograph of it.

I use the soft bonnet if I am in the bed reading or relaxing because I can recline quite comfortably. I like the heat settings, bells & whistles, and timer on my hard bonnet (bought it from a salon/has a seat attached) and this is what I use most often.

Default Re: Hard vs. Soft Bonnet Hair Dryers

I have had several soft bonnet dryers over the years, all made by LadyCarel, and one every single one the plastic ring on the bonnet where you attach the airtube tore away. I ended up using tape, bobby pins and anything else keep the tube connected. Also, the drawstring that tightens the bonnet loses its elastic very quickly, and I had to jerry rig that too to get it to stay on my head. So a few months ago I said "forget it" and purchased a $100 hard bonnet dryer on a stand with casters, and I love it.

But now this Ion soft bonnet dryer looks like it would work much better than what I had. Hmmmm.....

Sorry about that... LOL! I had just made a New Year's Hair Resolution not to buy any new products, when I say the post. After someone said they put an extension cord on their's and walked around the house - I grabbed my checkbook and ran out the door...
