I personally have not used a hair dryer in years due to the fact that I color treat my hair and tend to get split ends easily. Using a hair dryer just tends to make it worse and full of frizz. But with the recent cold snap we have been experiencing on the East coast, I felt that using a hair dryer would be best. Going outside with damp hair only makes for easier breakage as well as a higher chance at getting sick. So when I got the opportunity to try the Xtava hair dryer, I took full advantage of it! The pros were definitely outweighing the cons! 

The hair dryer came in a very nice sturdy box and wasn't overly decorated. I really liked the package because it didn't seem to busy with pictures of what I would be able to look at when I opened the box. Very basic and sleek! 

The hair dryer it'self was a normal size I would expect for one and had an attachment for easier air control included. The cord wasn't all twisted and looked very nice!

I actually read the direction on how to use the hair dryer because it had been so long. I pretty much knew what to do but wanted to make doubly sure I didn't mess it up in some way! I'm weird like that!! 

So I took my shower and towel dried my hair just enough that it wasn't dripping all over the place, plugged in the hair dryer added the control attachment and turned it on! I was impressed that it wasn't as loud as I thought it would be. It was actually pretty quiet! With the air control I was able to dry my hair in about 3 minutes! 

The hair dryer has different settings on it and are very easy to read. One button controls the speed and the other for heat. Very simple. 

However, because of the treatment of my hair it did leave it frizzy. So I went out and purchased a hair product that was compatible with the heat of a blow dryer and I haven't had an issue with it since then.

I love the hair dryer and would recommend it for anyone! I think the company has it's customers needs in mind and would make a great replacement for your current hair dryer! Although, if you tend to have frizzy hair like me, I recommend you get a heat treat for your hair and add it into your routine. And i'm sure this would be the case with any type of blow dryer on the market.
