    Comments about Hot Tools The Gold Touch Turbo Ionic 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.

        Loved this for a while but sadly it broke. The dryer will not go to the high setting and will only blow at low. Also does not get hot. Very inconvenient and poor quality product.

            I have very very thin hair and ut usually takes me less than 10min to blow dry my hair after coming out of the shower, this. Low dryer barely heats up and it took me forever to get it done. Ended up switchibg to my 10hr old blow dryer cause this one wasn't doing the job. Tried it again a few more times. It it wasn't just a one time thing.

                I have thick long hair and it takes me forever to dry my hair with this blow dryer. The design is nice but the heat is not that hot and the air flow is weak as well.

                        There is actually no difference in performance between the two models, as both share the same dryer housing and motor components. We hope this extra info helps! :-)
