    I thought "dries hair 40% faster!" was a huge understatement. It is the honest truth!! It DOES dry hair faster. This hair drier was worth every penny!

        Comments about Hot Tools The Gold Touch Turbo Ionic Dryer:

        The hardest dryer I've ever tried to use. The handle buttons are so bulky that when you hold it, the buttons are in the way and change settings at every twist or move of the handle. Terrible!

        Comments about Hot Tools The Gold Touch Turbo Ionic Dryer:

        I have arthritis and thick hair, so drying the back of my hair has always been a challenge. This dryer is light weight so it does not tire my arms and it dries my thick hair quickly.

          I was agonizing over finding the perfect dryer but this proved to be perfect for me. I have arthritis and was worried that it would be heavy or hard too hold. Not this blow dryer. I love it!

          Comments about Hot Tools The Gold Touch Turbo Ionic Dryer:

          Loved it for the whole time I was using it but the motor died after only 6 months. I am super disappointed. Also doesn't work well in humid areas like central/east texas.. my hair would still frizz up real bad. switching to Dry Bar Buttercup.

            Motor goes out too fast

            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.

                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.
