    Mrs C's just invested in a Babyliss Ionic Airstyler 34mm

    It's like a hair brush with a hair dryer built in.

    Only uses 800w of electricity

    looking online the Remington is a heated brush rather than a blow dryer - is that right ?

    I usually wait for my hair to dry naturally then tame it with the straighteners

    Actually it uses less than 300w as I don't use it now since I had most of my hair cut off!

    I have this and it certainly does well with my hair. We run it from our 1500w inverter, but I wait until my hair is nearly dry and then use it to add a bit of style.

    Thanks Sandra
    I just thought it might be a solution for people with smaller inverters.
    And as @Viennese says, there may be an even power power option too.

    Wife uses a travel hairdryer on a low setting, less heat but does the job..
    We only have a 600w Inverter (1000 peak)...
    She also has a Braun gas powered "thingy"...

    Glad I'm bald..

    Aye. The weird thing is that the missus says it is about as good as her 1200 watt "Nicky Clark" effort

    Anything is better than the dangerous 120 watt/12v/10A "camping one" I stupidly bought, whose cigarette lighter type plug heated up so much it became a fire risk

    Far too late for me. I had my long locks cropped quite some years ago.

    I tried that, ended up being cautioned for being in possession of an offensive wife after she tried to jump out into the passenger seat of a passing convertible Bentley

    She gave me a couple of very nasty bites in the process of trying to restrain her. Those rabies shots were very painful.

    And she still refuses to wear the muzzle I bought her for her birthday

    Never use a hairdryer, at home or in the van. Just leave my hair to dry naturally.

    looking at your picture in your avatar, with ears like that, putting your head out of the window would act like an air brake
