Panasonic nanoe ™ Hairdryer EH-NA65-K895 Review

I was sent this hairdryer to product test a few weeks ago and to be honest, I was originally of the opinion that a hairdryer was a hairdryer and that was that. It was there to dry your hair, so what was the point in spending much on one – they all do the same job, right? Well, no actually. Your hairdryer is quite possibly one of your most used beauty gadgets, with some of us using them every day and others using it a couple of times a week. It’s the beginnings of hair styling, so you want a hairdryer that will leave you with beautiful, healthy hair.

I received the box in the post and was instantly impressed with the sleek, girly packaging in black and pink.

The actual hairdryer is black in colour, with a pink nozzle. The first great thing I noticed was how long the lead was. I hate having to be attached to the wall when drying my hair because the lead won’t stretch far enough. You wont have that trouble with this hairdryer – the lead is 2.7m, so plenty of opportunities for dancing round your room while you dry!

It comes with three different nozzles. First is the diffuser, which I’m still getting to grips with as my first use left me with rather frizzy hair! More practice needed with this one….

The next nozzle is a condenser, which concentrates the airflow, allowing you to style your hair more precisely.

Lastly, there is the quick-dry nozzle, which really impressed me. I’ll be honest, I don’t quite understand how it works – something to do with different airflows, but it works! It cut down my hair drying time by at least 5 minutes, which can make all the difference when you’re rushing to get out.

The dryer has three speed settings and three heat settings, as well as a Cool-shot button for leaving you with that extra bit of shine.

So, what makes this hairdryer so special? The nanoe ™ technology. What on earth is that I hear you ask! Well, according to Panasonic, a nanoe ™ ion retains approximately 1000 times more moisture than a negative ion, therefore supplementing the hair and scalp with additional moisture. This is meant to leave you with smooth, shiny hair and a healthier scalp. These nanoe ™ ions are released through the small opening above the nozzle.

The blurb about it is all very well, but does it actually work? I’ve been using this hairdryer for about two weeks now, and in my opinion my hair feels smoother and looks shinier and healthier than it did when using my old hairdryer. I can’t decide if my scalp feels healthier, but perhaps that’s something I will notice over time.

As with most things, there are a couple of downsides. Firstly, the £100 price tag. I’m not sure I would have the budget at the moment to set aside £100 for a hairdryer, but then saying that, it’s something I use regularly and I have spent similar amounts on tools like straightening irons. So, although it’s quite a hefty outlay, the benefits may outweigh that. The only other thing that I felt it was missing was a nice carry case. At the moment I’m keeping mine in its box, but I think it would have been a nice finishing touch to include a professional looking case to keep it in.

Overall I’m pretty impressed with this and I’m sure it will turn into one of my hair-care staple products.

This is available from Boots and Panasonic and prices range from £99 - £109.99


  1. I would to suggest that Panasonic hair dryer is one of the best hair dryer. My wife is using it and she is having very good experience with it.
