nanoe™ Moisturizes and Smoothens Hair

Panasonic’s unique ultra-fine nanoe™ contains around 1,000 times the moisture held by ions. nanoeTM penetrates inside the hair and adjusts water balance, making hair shiny and smooth. It suppresses static electricity to tame flyaway hair, making it manageable. At the same time, nanoe™ moisturizes the scalp to keep it healthy, preventing the dryness that causes damage to hair.

nanoe™ & Double Mineral*

What makes the EH-NA98 special is that it provides Double Mineral ion in addition to nanoe™. With an outstanding synergy, nanoe™ and Double Mineral firmly tighten the cuticle and create beautiful, damage-resistant hair. By increasing the adhesiveness of the cuticle, they reduce friction damage from brushing as well as damage from external stimuli such as ultraviolet rays.

*Double mineral means mineral ions generated by two zinc electrodes.
Test Method
A hair tuft was washed and dried with a dryer (for around 90 seconds), then combed around 1,000 times in acceleration testing. The condition of a hair end when nanoe™ & Double Mineral were not used and for hair end when they were used are shown.


Various Modes for Hair, Scalp and Skin
- Scalp Care Mode
In this mode, the dryer gently dries the scalp with warm air set at about 50°C.* nanoe™ adds moisture, which mitigates the dryness that contributes to skin stress, resulting in healthier scalp.
*When the ambient temperature is 23˚C

- Skin Care Mode

Use this mode at the end of your drying session for around one minute. Skin becomes moisturized as nanoe™ helps it retain its moisture.


- Hot/Cold Alternating Mode

The Hot / Cold Alternating Mode was developed to automatically switch the airflow between hot air and cold air. This temperature gap will mitigate waves, line up the surface of the hair, and reflect light to make hair more lustrous by approximately 40%*.

・Test Method
After hair bundles were dried with a dryer while they were being brushed, their luster levels were measured while they were held in a curved position.
This is a comparison of when the nanoe™ hair dryer was used with and without the Hot/Cold Alternating Mode.
・Effectiveness may vary among individuals.


- Intelligent Temperature Control Mode

A built-in ambient temperature sensor accurately measures the surrounding air temperature and adjusts the airflow to a comfortable temperature for drying in any season.

* Indicates air temperature based on IEC standards

・Air temperature is approx. 90˚C when the room temperature is approx. 20˚C. Air temperature is approx. 70˚C when the room temperature is approx. 30˚C. At room temperatures between the two, air temperature changes gradually.


Quick Dry

Panasonic’s unique Quick-dry Nozzle generates strong and soft airflows to help separate hair strands, increasing the exposed surface area for fast drying.
In addition to the way the air is blown, air volume, air temperature and air pressure are all important. Panasonic’s nanoe™ hair dryers attain a superb balance among these four elements to let you dry your hair quickly, gently and beautifully.
