    Motor goes out too fast

    By Sabrina

    from Ca

    About Me Minimalist

    Pros

      Cons

      • Doesn't blow enough air
      • Heavy
      • Loud
      • Not Enough Heat
      • Poor Quality

      Best Uses

        Comments about Hot Tools The Gold Touch Turbo Ionic Dryer:

        I used my dryer maybe once every two weeks, I usually take a shower at night and let my hair air dry. so the fact that the motor went out one morning when I decided to wash my hair that morning then had to go to work with a head full of wet hair, is frustrating, to say the least. I should have trusted my gut and returned it after first use when I could tell it wasn't going to work well due to low air flow, heaviness, and loudness. I had it for about one year.

        Comments about Hot Tools The Gold Touch Turbo Ionic Dryer:

        I really liked how the dryer made my hair feel after drying it, however I couldn't find a comfortable way to hold the dryer. The control switches/buttons are on the side and aren't rounded out. Ended up exchanging for the hot tools model HT7030D.

            Comments about Hot Tools The Gold Touch Turbo Ionic Dryer:

            The reasons why this item is horrible are:
            - It takes forever to dry your hair.
            - If you use the item for too long (more than a few minutes) the buttons start to overheat and your hand gets burned.
            - The buttons are in a horrible spot, it's hard to get a comfortable hold of the hairdryer.
            - After only a month or so of use, it's started to release that "burning" smell.
            - This item was expensive for the quality.

              Best blow-dryer I've owned! Love that it's so lightweight, heats not too fast or too slow, comes with a root lifter attachment, and looks beautiful! It's so easy to hold, I recommend this dryer.

                    I bought this product because of the great price and previous positive experiences with Hot Tools curling irons, flat irons, etc.; although this product does NOT live up to the experience I've had with Hot Tools styling tools. The on-off switch was faulty and the blow dryer would stop working when I would switch it to medium at times. The dryer only delivered luke-warm heat and took much too long to dry my hair.

                    Comments about Hot Tools The Gold Touch Turbo Ionic Dryer:

                    Bought this to replace my 10-year-old Bedhead hairdryer that they no longer make. The placement of the buttons on the side of the handle make it very difficult to hold without your fingers pressing the buttons. The dryer itself is very tapered, and ends up just blowing my hair around rather than effectively drying it. The heat is not especially hot. I have thin, medium length hair, and I still had a very hard time getting my hair dry. It did minimize frizz, but that also came along with a lack of volume entirely. I will be returning this, unfortunately.
