    dont bother.

    her hair will dry faster standing in a breeze.or running around in circles.

    theres a valid reason for mains powered hairdriers being upwards of 1200watts.....they need power, and a lot of lt.

    i had a 12v kettle once for use during the 1/2hr dinner break sat in the van at work....even with the engine running, break was over a long time before the water was hot enough to make coffee.

    When the weather is inclement LOL the gas boiler thingy combined with the fan throws out so much hot air from the vents I want Pete to get a vacuum cleaner type hose thingy I can fit in one of the vents and use as a hairdrier because I have to recline on the floor to do it at the mo - in summer it ain't a prob because it does eventually dry, but when it's snowing or raining and cold, it stays wet forever.

    Once it's dry-ish I can employ said gas appliance - I have both tongs and a hotbrush, which I've used for years. Yes even though hair is now long and permed - the brush takes the frizz out and establishes which way my fringe is going to go. I'd have to try not to shoot meself if it packed up en route till I could find the nearest Braun stockist!

    The brush I have at the mo (or it's predecessor) has been to India, France, Yugoslavia, Malaysia, Australia, the Dom Repub, France. Spain ....... and all over the UK.
