BLU Turbo Ionic Dryer

Item #: 2305023

The BLU Turbo Ionic Dryer is a breakthrough in hair dryer technology that dries hair up to 2X faster and retains moisture for smooth, healthy, shiny hair. The efficient High-Power DC Motor and Turbine Fan design are uniquely combined to deliver the lightest and most powerful dryer. Unlike conventional dryers with 2 speed settings, the BLU Turbo Ionic Dryer's Infinity Dial allows you to control and customize the airflow to meet your personal drying and styling needs, while the Ionic Generator bathes hair with soothing ions to produce smooth, frizz-free hair.

Extreme Power: The BLU Turbo Ionic Dryer's high power DC Motor, producing more power than a 2000W dryer, and Jet Turbine Fan combine to create an unparalleled efficient design that delivers an ultra lightweight dryer with extremely powerful high speed airflow that helps dry hair faster.

Ultra Lightweight: The BLU Turbo Ionic Dryer's ultra lightweight and ergonomic design makes drying and styling your hair comfortable and easy.

Turbo Ionic: The BLU Turbo Ionic Dryer is the only dryer in existence that allows you to select the level of negative ions for your hair type to maximize frizz reduction for smooth, shiny hair.

Key Features:
  • Ultra Lightweight (13.5 oz.)
  • High Power Motor
  • High Compression Turbine Fan
  • Turbo Ionic Switch
  • Infinity Airflow Dial
  • Tourmaline Ceramic Technology
  • 2 Heat Settings
  • Cool Shot
  • 9' Power Cord
  • Accessories Included: Concentrator and Diffuser
Towel dry your hair to absorb as much moisture as possible. When you're ready to start drying, set the heat to low and begin by rough drying your hair to remove excess water. With the Infinity Airflow Dial turned all the way up, and the Turbo Ionic Switch set to low, run the dryer over your head using your hands to lift the hair at the roots. When your hair is about three-quarters dry, turn the heat setting to high and turn down the airflow for precision control while turning up the negative ions to turbo to seal the cuticle for a frizz-free, long lasting style.

For full volume, bouncy curls and waves, utilize the concentrator and point the dryer at a 45-degree angle from beneath the hair shaft, infusing each section with extra body. To achieve a smooth and sleek straight style, point the dryer downward from above the hair and be sure to maintain tension with your brush. Section your hair and begin at the nape of your neck, working down from the root, to mid-shaft, to the ends. Work around your head in small, manageable sections until your hair is completely dry. When you¿ve achieved your desired style, press the cool shot to lock in your look.

For all natural curls, attach the diffuser and set both the heat setting and Infinity Airflow Dial to low. Begin by tilting your head to the side and placing the diffuser near your roots. Move the dryer around your head in circular motions while scrunching the hair in your hand and allowing the diffuser's prongs to gently massage the curls. Continue until tousled, natural-looking waves are completely dry, then shake out hair and fluff the roots. Lock in the style with the cool shot.

      Comments about InStyler BLU Turbo Ionic Dryer:

      This is the second dryer I have tried and love it. It is light and small. The cord is extra long and the diffuser is not universal which is why it lost a star. Other than that, it works great.

            This is the first higher end hair dryer I have purchased and I love it! The Blu has a great design, light weight, quiet and has a much smoother finish that my old hair dryer. Highly recommend!

            Comments about InStyler BLU Turbo Ionic Dryer:

            I was a little skeptical when I first looked at this dryer, since it was my first time looking at dryers that were over $20, but I still decided to give a go. I think it is kind of a gimmicky dryer, but it does a decent job. It is a very pretty dryer, and more customizable than any other dryer I've ever used (even today). It did a nice job of drying my hair, without drying it out or making it frizzy. Perfomance-wise, it did a good job, but I ended up returning it. The cons I had with this, was even though they give you the option to go turbo with the ions, I honestly didn't notice a difference in the finish of my hair. My hair still looked good, but there wasn't much of a difference between the ion settings. I also didn't like that the vent can't be removed for cleaning. Granted, the dryer does seem pretty open, so I'm not sure if it stays cleaner than other dryers, but for how much money you're dropping on this, I would hope they'd give you the option to maintain it for longevity. Power-wise, even though they say it's a 2,000W dryer, now that I've tried other dryers, this one definitely doesn't feel like it pushes out 2,000W. Lastly, and the issue that pretty much the nail in the coffin, is that the concentrator was too big to fit in the dryer. It was very. very hard to insert, twist, or remove the attachment. Because of how light the dryer is, I felt like I was going to break it trying to remove the concentrator. There was plastic from the dryer rubbing off onto the concentrator from me trying to twist it off.

            Overall, it's a good dryer, but you can find one just as good, if not better, for cheaper. I would say look at other options before dedicating yourself to this one.

              Comments about InStyler BLU Turbo Ionic Dryer:

              I previously used a Chi Nano ceramic hair dryer - it lasted me a good 6-7 years I think, so I was terribly affronted when the cord started to smoke/spark. (It's possible my cat bit it, but that's not important.)

              I bought into the beauty of this dryer, plus the added bonus of the smaller equally beautiful dryer. I got them home and hurriedly showered, eager to use it. To my UTTER DISMAY, it did NOT get very hot, nor did it seem very powerful. In fact, it's probably light because it seems plasticy and not well made. It took me so long to dry my hair that I *ALMOST* gave up and used old sparky. (My husband had to throw it out.)

              Back to the store it goes today, instead I will go with my gut decision and buy the blue BaByliss one. It's not as stylish, but it seems to get many positive reviews in which the reviewer did not receive a free product in order to review. Just saying.

              Comments about InStyler BLU Turbo Ionic Dryer:

              I was swayed into buying this dryer over the one I initially wanted because it came with a free mini dryer. The reviews on this dryer were also high so I figured I couldn't go wrong and would also get something free in the process. This dryer is super lightweight and I liked that there were settings for the ions, but it just doesn't get hot enough. The heat output of the highest heat setting is probably equivalent to the medium heat level of other dryers. Maybe that's intentional so that it's less damaging to your hair? Other than how lightweight it is I didn't find anything special about this dryer, it dried my hair in about the same time as any other. I returned it (and the free mini) and purchased the dryer I originally wanted.
