How to get salon worthy hair at home

AD | For the past ten years or so, I’ve been using the hairdryer and straighteners from the Babyliss diamond range. I love the design, how they perform and how long they have lasted.

I wanted a new set as my old ones were old, slightly damaged and not working as well as I wanted. I did a lot of comparisons with newer Babyliss ones, but they came out quite pricey.

I came across the Remington shine therapy hair dryer & straighteners. With amazing reviews across the internet and the great prices I had to give them a go.

Remington Shine Therapy Hair Dryer (£21.98)

With Power Dry and Cool Shot for a Frizz Free Shine

  • Powerful 2300 W dryer
  • Three heat settings and two speed settings
  • Cool shot to set styles
  • Concentrator and diffuser
  • 1.8 m cord and hang up loop


The Remington Shine Therapy Dryer delivers an elegantly glossy, frizz free shine with every blow dry. Thanks to Remington’s ionic technology which emits 90 percent more ions for long lasting frizz free results and a healthy looking luxurious blow dry, worthy of any salon. This dryer features two speed settings so you can speed it up or slow it down a pace, depending on your hair type or preference. An additional three heat settings allow you to create a bespoke drying experience for complete drying control, suited to you and your hair.

Complete with two attachments, this dryer covers all your hair drying needs. Attach the concentrator nozzle to focus the powerful airflow down the hair shaft to deliver accurate styling, ideal for straightening. For those with natural curls or waves, the diffuser helps reduce frizz even further and create big impact volume. The Remington Shine Therapy Dryer features a handy cool shot, applying a blast of cooling air helps to set that all style in place. A useful loop to hang the dryer, allows neat storage at your dressing table with no unsightly wires. Plus a removable, easy clean rear grille means your dryer can be kept looking as good as new in impeccable condition.

Remington Shine Therapy Hair Straighteners (£25.14)

with Moroccan Argan Oil for Improved Shine

  • Advanced Ceramic coated plates infused with Moroccan Argan Oil with Vitamin E
  • Digital temperature display with 9 settings 150 – 230 degrees
  • Fast heat up in 15 seconds. Auto shut off after 60 minutes
  • Floating plates for even pressure on the hair


Treat your hair to some therapy with the Remington Therapy straighteners to help you create styles whilst caring for your hair. If you want a more intense shine, to tackle frizz or to have healthier looking hair in an instant, then look no further. This clever range of tools incorporate the next generation of Advanced Ceramic plates, infused with special Micro Conditioners, so not only will your hair be styled to perfection, it will be shiny and healthy looking too.

The Advanced Ceramic coated plates on these super smart straighteners are infused with Moroccan Argan Oil, a natural ingredient renowned for its shine enhancing properties, as well as Vitamin E, conditioners and moisturisers. When heated, these wonder Micro Conditioners evenly emit through the plates and on to your hair. With its nine different temperate settings you can tailor the heat to suit your hair type. The floating plates ensure even pressure on the hair for professional results and its fast 15 second heat up time is great for getting ready in a hurry. A heat resistant pouch is included.



The ionic technology drew me to this hairdryer, I have frizzy hair and needed a dryer that helped to reduce the frizz. My old dryer was quite heavy and noisy, not easy to manage and loud. I wanted something lightweight, easy to handle and quieter. This dryer had everything I needed.

After using the dryer I felt as though I’d stepped out of the salon. The cool air feature is one I enjoyed previously so was good to have on this model. It is a dream to use, great for if you are in a rush and brilliant for all hair types.

The dryer doesn’t come with a protective bag for travelling, you can buy one here.

I bought these because as I was reading reviews, one review in particular caught my attention. ‘Better than GHD’. I’d been looking at GHD’s for a while but the mixed reviews and price tag had put me off. My old set had started to pull on my hair and as this set features floating plates, it was just what I was looking for.

They glide through my hair so easy, I feel like I’ve been to a salon. The Argan oil makes your hair feel so soft and conditioned, its a treat, I also add extra hair oil or spray. The straighteners feel so comfy to hold compared to my last ones. I recommend these for all hair types. They go up to 230 degrees though I would recommend a lower temperature as not to damage your hair, especially if used daily.

They come with a handy heat resistant pouch to store them in and I kept my old heat resistant mat to use whilst styling and travelling. You can buy one here.

Both products have shortened my styling time and produced great results, I absolutely love these and they look great on my dressing table. If you are looking for a great product with fast easy results, this set is for you.

How to get Salon Worthy Hair:

Dry your hair without a nozzle first to remove excess moisture, then apply hair oil or spray to protect the hair. (Read my other blog for VO5 hair product reviews). Use the concentrator nozzle for blow dry results.

Apply heat protection spray or oil and divide your hair into sections and strands. Get your straighteners to the correct heat for your hair type. Take each strand, hold the hair taut, clamp the straighteners around it and smooth through the hair. Repeat until all strands and sections are finished.

Apply a finishing product such as hairspray.

What set do you currently use? What do you look for when buying styling products for your hair? Would you try these? What do you think to Remington products?
