This morning my old beaten up hair dryer died. It didn’t truly die even -it just started making a funny noise and blew some smoke. It was still running but I was afraid it would catch fire. I had that hair dryer for at least 7 years -maybe as many as 10 -it just wouldn’t die. I dropped it a thousand times -calling it everything but a hairdryer. I broke off the button that retraced the cord and it was still going strong….goodbye conair 750 – I won’t forget you.
