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.)
