I was introduced to BARBAR recently. BARBAR kindly sent me a complementary Eco 8000 hair dryer.
What is BARBAR? (adapted from their About Us page)

Why is BARBAR green and part of Simply Green? (adapted from their product page)
BARBAR is offering eco-friendly hair care products! Details on the Eco 8000 hair dryer … The Barbar ECO 8000 Blow Dryer uses the latest in technology by having an eco-friendly ceramic heating element, as opposed to all standard dryers that have a coil heating element. The difference is use of electricity & output of radiation. The ECO 8000 has 5.0 mG (milligauss) output radiation. A standard 1,800 WATT dryer has over 200.0 mG! This amount of mG is comparable to the radiation output of a microwave. The ceramic heating element lasts 5x longer than a coil heating element. The ceramic heating element uses 90% electricity, turning it into heat. No energy is wasted, but saved. The coil heating element wastes electricity because it doesn’t use it, thus turning it into radiation. Unused electricity turns into radiation! The BARBAR ECO 8000 is truly eco-friendly; everything a blow dryer should be and much more.
My thoughts about BARBAR …
I have been a drug store hair dryer girl … well forever. A hair dryer is a hair dryer, right? When I first read about the BARBER ECO 8000 hair dryer and the radiation that a “normal” hair dryer delivers, I couldn’t believe it. BARBER sent me facts to back this up though! This YouTube link shows the radiation test results from various hair dryer. Plus this link references the link between EMF output and blow dryers. Who knew? I sure didn’t as I often dry my toddler and preschoolers locks after bath time!
This hair dryer is worth the price. I find it hard to believe I am saying that but I feel like I am walking out the salon when I use it. Plus my hair doesn’t get super hot like it did with my drug store hair dryer. One of the best perks for my little girls is that it doesn’t “burn” their ears. They used to want me to cover their ears when I dried their hair but now I don’t have to juggle covering ears while drying their hair.
I admit that I am now looking forward to drying my hair and am not leaving it as a chore that leaves me flat, dry hair! Who wouldn’t want that?
Oh and check out their other products here. My sister has the BEST curls but loves to straighten her hair and I know she would love this cordless straightener!
BARBAR has offered one of my readers Eco 8000 hair dryer! This hair dryer is priced at $150!!
