        It is nice and light. It would be better if the designers didn't put the control buttons right where you hold the device though.

          I will only buy this brand dryer. Originally I had the purple n pink ombré edition... Even a few years old and use every day (my 2 sisters included) still worked wonderfully until a really bad drop. In a pinch I made a quick purchase of a less expensive brand and that was a waste of money. So I ended up getting this dryer, much nicer quality. And it's not too bulky for a full sized dryer and fits nicely into my sink vanity drawer.

            Comments about Hot Tools Ionic Turbo Salon Dryer:

            I've had this dryer for about two months. I went to Ulta in search of a different Hot Tools dryer, but my location was out of the one I wanted, so after much debating I purchased this one. I went home and looked online to see the reviews (backwards, I know, but this isn't the one I originally went in for) and was a little scared to open the box. The reviews seemed hot and cold (no pun intended). Well, I needed a dryer that night and didn't have a choice other than to open it. I love this hair dryer! Not too loud, definitely not heavy, and the buttons are placed on the handle just fine. Every once in a while, my thumb grazes the cool shot button and I get a blast, but it isn't the end of the world!! My only thing is that the concentrator doesn't fit as tightly as I would prefer, but the air comes out of the dryer pretty precisely, so it isn't a huge deal. I have a shorter bob cut, and I have no problem using this dryer with a round brush; it doesn't blow my hair all over place, or off of the brush. All in all, don't be afraid of any negative comments you may read, this dryer is great!!

            I bought it because it was so light weight, which when you have long hair is a huge bonus. I would have given it 5 stars for the fact the attachment does not seat tight enough on the end. It moves too easily, so I have to constantly stop and reposition to finish drying my hair.

              Has anyone used this hair dryer to diffuse curly hair and how did it treat curly?

                A:

                The Ionic Turbo Salon Dryer accepts most universal diffuser attachments, so you can certainly use it to diffuse curls! Its ionic technology helps to reduce frizz, so curls are better defined. Enjoy!

            • Q:

              Aside from the price point, what are the main differences between this dryer and the Hot Tools Tourmaline Turbo Ionic Dryer? Weights/wattages/warranty/real benefits?
              A little background for my usage needs: I have arthritis in my hands and need something lightweight/small. I have shoulder length fine thin hair. I like to blow out my hair often at home for maximum volume and sometimes then curl it.

                A:

                Both of these dryers have a one year manufacturer's warranty. Both of them are ionic, however the Tourmaline Turbo Ionic dryer produces more negative ions to help dry hair quickly. That's because it does it by actively producing ions with an internal ion generator as well as passively when the tourmaline inside the dryer is heated by turning it on. If your hair is thin, then either of these dryers would work just as well. The weight of the Ionic Turbo Salon Dryer will easier for you to work with if you have arthritis.
