Safety Instructions
ALCI Safety Device
If you must use your hair dryer in the bathroom, install a GFCI* now!
This hair dryer is provided with an appliance leakage circuit interrupter (ALCI) safety
device built into the plug. This device is designed to make the unit inoperable under
some abnormal conditions, such as accidental immersion in water. The ALCI safety
device is equipped with a test button so that its operation can be checked. This unit
should be tested before each use to confirm that the safety device is operational.
To test:
After plugging in your hair dryer:
1. Press the reset button on the ALCI device.
2. Press the test button. The reset button will pop out. This verifies that the safety
device is operating properly.
3. Press the reset button to reactivate your ALCI safety device.
4. Your hair dryer is now ready for use.
Note: This unit may automatically trip when unplugged. If so, the unit must be
reset after it is plugged in. If the dryer doesn’t reset after following the above
testing procedure, call 800-736-4648.
1. Should the ALCI safety device trip (i.e., reset button pops out) during use, press
the reset button. Should the hair dryer fail to reset, call 800-736-4648. Never
operate this appliance if it has been dropped in water.
2. The dryer is designed to work on ordinary household current only, 125 volts
A.C., 60 Hz. It is not intended for commercial use.
3. This appliance is equipped with an automatic thermal limiter, which will cycle
off when overheated and come back on when cooled down. If the unit cycles
off, unplug the cord for several minutes before restarting.
4. This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). As a
safety feature, this plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug
does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a
qualified electrician. Do not attempt to defeat this safety feature.
Your local electrician can help you decide which type is best for you – a portable unit that plugs into the electrical outlet or a permanent unit installed by
your electrician. The National Electrical Code now requires GFCI’s in bathrooms,
garages, and outdoor outlets of all new homes.
Why do you need a GFCI?
Electricity and water don’t mix. If your hair dryer falls in water while it’s plugged
in, the electric shock can kill you– even if the switch is “off.”
A regular fuse or circuit breaker won’t protect you under these circumstances.
A GFCI offers you greater protection.
A GFCI can save your life!
Compared to that, the price is small!
Don’t wait… install one now!
*GFCI is a sensitive device that reacts immediately to a small electric current
leak by stopping the electricity flow.

Hair Care Tips
Cleaning and Maintenance
Basic Drying Techniques
■ K eep the dryer about 8 inches away from your head to avoid burning scalp or
damaging hair.
■ Always keep the dryer pointed down the hair shaft to smooth the cuticle and
create a silky, shiny style.
■ To help prevent heat damage and add shine, spritz damp hair with a heat
protection spray before blow drying.
■ To create a style with lots of body, apply volumizing mousse to towel dried hair.
Distribute it evenly from roots to ends, then blow dry as usual. Hair will be soft,
shiny, and full of volume.
■ For a super smooth, salon-like blow dry, finish by running a straightening iron
over dried hair.
■ F or a quick touch-up between shampoos, mist hair to dampen it, then style with dryer.
Maintenance Instructions
1. Gently towel dry hair to remove excess water. Avoid rubbing hair with towel
– this creates split ends and frizziness. Detangle hair with a wide-toothed comb.
2. Be sure dryer is turned off. Plug dryer into an electrical outlet.
3. Turn the dryer on and set it to a high heat and speed. Remove some of the
additional moisture from your hair by briskly blow drying it all over, using your
fingers to "comb" through hair.
4. When hair is almost dry, lower the heat and speed to the desired settings and
begin to style.
5. Divide hair into manageable sections. Begin at the nape of your neck and brush
hair, following the movement of the brush with the dryer. Continue working
your way up to your scalp, then to the sides and the front, drying small sections
at a time.
For straight, smooth hair:
Brush hair from underneath using a large, round brush or paddle brush. Pull hair
down until the hair is fully extended and taut. Run the dryer slowly down the
length of the hair several times until dry. Repeat with all sections of hair until it is
completely dried.

The dryer needs minimum maintenance to ensure the best performance and long life.
■ Do not attempt to repair the appliance yourself.
■ Keep all intake openings clear of dust accumulation. See “Cleaning Instructions”
below. No other maintenance or lubrication is required.
■ If the cord becomes twisted due to use, periodically straighten it. Store appliance
and cord where they will not be damaged. Do not wrap cord around dryer.
■ No user serviceable parts.
Cleaning Instructions
The air filter should be cleaned regularly, since a dirty or clogged filter will impair
the efficiency of the dryer.
1. To clean air filter, make sure dryer is turned off and unplugged.
2. Pinch the air filter on the sides and pull outwards to remove.
3. U
se a soft bristle brush to gently remove any particles that are lodged in filter.
4. If the unit is dirty, wipe it with a damp cloth.
5. T o replace the air filter after cleaning, align correctly and push back into place.
For curly hair:
With the dryer turned off, attach the diffuser to the end of the nozzle. Use the
dryer on a low heat and speed setting and move it quickly about your head. As
you dry your hair, scrunch it with your favorite styling product or twirl strands of
hair around your fingers to add definition. When finished drying, lock in the style
with the Cool Shot.
When not in use, unplug the unit. Allow it to cool, and store out of reach of children in a safe, dry location. Never wrap the cord around the appliance, as this
will cause the cord to wear prematurely and break. Handle cord carefully, and
avoid jerking, twisting, or straining it, especially at plug connections.
Cool Shot:
The Cool Shot sets the style by blowing a cool stream of air. Press and hold the
cool shot button to set style. Release the button to return to warm air flow.
