I am sad to report that after ten years of faithful service, my Carmen hair dryer has given up. I have replaced it with the Remington D8700 PROtect. It was recommended by Which Magazine as their best buy. As my Carmen is the only other dryer I can remember using, I will be spending most of this post comparing the two.
It is bulky. Here is a picture of it, comparing it to my old one, and with a compact hair dryer thrown in for scale.
Not only is it bulkier, it also noticeably heavier. The Carmen was really light. In comparison, this feels weightier when you pick it up. Then there are the buttons. The Carmen had sliders, whereas the Remington has rocker switches.
These are easy to knock when passing it from hand to hand, and making holding it more difficult.
Once you get past these issues, it dries well. It dried my hair as fast as the Carmen and comes with the same heat and speed options.
