Default hairdryer and shampoo/conditioner

Should I bring my own Hairdryer? or is there a decent one in the cabin?
Not having used L'occitane shampoo/conditioner, I would appreciate opinions from people who have used them. Are they okay for color treated hair?

The hair dryer works fine but remember that there is wind and occasional rain every day. There is no such thing as a good hair day. My husband used the shampoos and loved them. I didn't want to risk them on my colored hair, so I brought my own.

The hairdryer was fine, I can't recall how powerful but it worked as well as my dryer at home. I did miss my ionizer, but not enough to lug a bulky ionizing dryer with me.

I used the shampoo and conditioner on my very dry, color treated hair. At the end of two weeks it felt a touch dryer than usual, but I think that was more a result of washing it everyday and sometimes twice in a day more than the shampoo. It would have been equally dry even with my regular shampoo and conditioner. (I normally only wash my hair ~five times a week.)

I brought my own shampoo/conditioner. One day by mistake I used the L occitane shampoo and found it was great. Works nicely on color treated hair. Try it. It will not fade your hair. The shower gel/soap have a nice lemon scent.
