Cedel Blow Dry Faster Heat Protector Review and How-to

Cedel Blow Dry Faster Heat Protector
Claims: two-in-one formula that reduces blow drying time while protecting your hair from the heat of your hair dryer.  
RRP: AUD7.99 
Packaging: 5 out of 5 
Review: I was very skeptical about this product when I first received it. It claims to reduce the blow drying time and I was dubious.  Normally, I take at least 15 minutes to dry my hair. The first time I tested the product, I shook the bottle, sprayed and proceeded to blow drying my hair. I did not feel any significant reduction in the drying time. The second time round, I still took 15 minutes to dry my hair. I started to think that this product was a total gimmick.

Despite my frustration and doubt, I decided to give the product another try. After all, as the saying goes, "third time's a charm". I picked up the bottle and took another look at the instructions at the back. Eureka! It finally hit me why this product wasn't working. I was skipping a vital step! I will get to that in a minute... 

Now, I am very impressed with this product. I used it again yesterday, following all the steps and it works. I took only 5 minutes to blow dry my hair. The best part is, it still leaves my hair smooth and soft (I was afraid that applying product to my hair would caked and crunch my strands up). Whoever invented it is a genius! I have a really heavy hair dryer. With this product, my arm no longer has to suffer every time I blow dry my hair. To me, this is the main feature of the product; the heat-protecting function is an added bonus.

I think the bottle is a very good size: easy to grip, hold up and spray at different angles. The price is reasonable and affordable. I recommend getting this product, especially if you're someone who leads a very busy/hectic lifestyle and need something that saves you time!

Here's how I blow dry my hair with Cedel Blow Dry Faster Heat Protector

Step 1 Shake the bottle. Then spray it all over your hair

 Step 2. The step I missed! The instruction says to take a comb and run it through your strands to evenly distribute the product. I don't own a comb, so I used a brush and ever-so-gently ran it through my hair. Remember, hair is weakest when it's wet, so please be gentle! 

Step 3 Proceed to blow drying! Note, this photo is only for show. That's not how I normally blow dry my hair. And you're done in 5 minutes! Well, for me anyway.


Do you know if any other products or tricks that reduce blow drying time? Please do share!


  1. I use this product every time I blow dry my hair. I love it. Great review and yes the important step is to comb it through all of your hair.

  2. I love this product too - for me it only works if I don't use any other serums or sprays with it. It is so good for summer, when you don't want to spend ages blasting yourself with hot air.

    PS - we use the same hairdryer!!

    1. I agree with you! I hate it when it gets really hot in the summer and I have to blow dryer my hair and I end up sweating! It's so cool that we have the same hair dryer. I hate that it's heavy but I like how powerful it is. :)

  3. Never used this before, but I definitely need something to reduce my hair blow drying time. Thanks for the review.

    1. Do give it a try. And you're welcome! :)
