2 Introduction

The MoistureProtect dryer has an innovative new sensor technology called the Moisture Protect sensor. This technology has been specifically designed to preserve the natural hydration of your hair. The infrared sensor measures the temperature of your hair while drying it, diagnoses your hair and adapts the temperature to preserve its natural hydration. This gives advanced protection to your hair and scalp from overheating and therefore keeps your hair healthier and shinier. We’ve already turned the sensor on so you can enjoy maximum protection right from the start. When the appliance is powered on, ions are automatically and continuously dispensed, reducing frizz and providing additional shine.

4 Dry your hair

  1. Connect the plug to a power supply socket.
  2. Attach the nozzle( 6 ) or volume diffuser ( 7 ) for your styling needs.
    • For precise drying, attach the nozzle on the hair dryer. The nozzle enables you to direct the airflow straight at the brush or comb with which you are styling your hair.
    • To enhance volume for curls and bouncy style, attach the diffuser on the hair dryer. Hold the hairdryer vertically and place the hair in a circular motion in between pins and move towards scalp slowly. To add volume at the roots, insert the pins into your hair by making rotating movements. It helps to dry your hair roots and scalp without hot spot.
  3. Adjust the airflow switch ( 3 ) and temperature switch ( 2 ) to suitable positions.
  4. Switch on MoistureProtect ( 5 ) for more protection. The moisture protect is on when using for the first time.
    The purple LED light on the product indicates the moisture protect sensor is on.
  5. Press the cool shot button ( 1 ) for cool airflow to fix your style.

After use:

  1. Switch off the appliance and unplug it.
  2. Place it on a heat-resistant surface until it cools down.
  3. To disconnect the nozzle or volume diffuser, pull it off the hairdryer.
  4. Press the latch to detach the air inlet grille ( 8 ) to remove hair and dust.
  5. Clean the appliance by a damp cloth.
  6. Keep it in a safe and dry place, free of dust. You can also hang it with the hanging loop ( 4 ).
