            I bought this hair dryer after having to return a brand new Conair that shot sparks the very first time I used it. This Hot Tools hair dryer is great....light, good heat levels and quick drying. Very happy with this hair dryer.

                  Exactly as expected. It is nice and lightweight. I don't think it gets as hot as my last dryer but still worked just fine and I doubt most people would need any hotter than it does get.

                    Great blow dryer, and no, they're not all alike. Didn't realize how badly I needed a new one until I bought and used this. Hair much smoother.

                          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.
