      I was looking for a powerful hair dryer to dry my hair in less time. I have thick wavy, chin lenght hair. Read most of the reviews here and then decided to go store to try the ones on my list. Finally ended up with this one and glad I did it! Now it only takes 10-15 minutes to style my hair and it looks like $40 worth blowout :)

          I researched a lot of dryers before I made a decision to buy this dryer! I have very thick, curly hair and get the Brazilian Blowout done. I needed a powerful dryer that was not heavy. This certainly met the criteria. I also travel often and this is compact enough to fit in my carry on. Didn't want to spend a fortune so this also met that mark. I would highly recommend!

          Comments about BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Portofino Dryer:

          I have been using the Super Solano for the last 3 years. It does well but I didn't like how heavy and bulky it felt. This Nano is completely opposite of that, it's light weight, not bulky, not as loud, easy to handle, and it dries my hair nicely considering I have VERY THICK AND LONG hair. I love that my hair feels soft and healthy after a blow dry in the hottest setting. I do wish it was capable of getting even hotter though.

            I thought I could do a decent blow out, and then this dryer put me to shame! Very even heat and I love the concentrated nozzles. My hair gets super frizzy with any agitation and these nozzles completely prevent that. I even tried it with a boar brush which is usually a major disaster for my naturally curly hair. Not so with this baby. Worth every penny.

              Comments about BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Portofino Dryer:

              I have very naturally curly hair and like to wear my hair curly. I own a Babyliss Pro Porcelain Ceramic dryer about 5 years old that I love. I wanted to try an upgrade, so I got this, along with the diffuser they recommend. The hair dryer itself is nice. It is VERY powerful, in fact, it was too much for my curls even with a diffuser and on a lower heat/blow setting. It left lots of small knots/tangles even on the lowest setting. I tried to use the dryer 4 times with different hair products and it still turned out the same- super puffy at the root and lots of frizzy/tangled curls. The diffuser prongs are also very short and the cup of the diffuser is small (and I have a lot of hair) so I went back to my old universal Conair diffuser on my Babyliss Pro. I took both of them back for a full refund. I love Babyliss products, but unless you are blowing your thick hair out straight I cannot recommend this for everyday, curly-girl styling.

                I purchased this as my travel dryer and ended up using it all the time because I like it so much! Lightweight, variable air flow and heat settings. Cool setting and cool shot button. This dryer has it all and it dries hair really quickly. I have long, straight, fine hair and use the medium heat/high airflow settings to get body with shine. I tried the Drybar baby buttercup first but it was too hot and not adjustable. Highly recommend!

                    A:

                    The BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Portofino dryer was updated a short time ago, and with that update, the contents of the package were changed. Ulta turns their merchandise extremely quickly, and as a result has the most current versions available, and the product listing on the Ulta site is correct. The difference was a Diffuser used to be included. Diffusers for the Portofino dryer are still available, but listed separately on the site. The Diffuser that will work with the Portofino dryer is the BaBylissPRO Online Only Italy Dryer Diffuser.

                  Why does this blue Portofino Dryer only come with 2 concentrators? Other Portofino dyers online, including the one of the Babyliss website, indicate 3 concentrators and a diffuser. I went to purchase this morning, but wanted all attachments.

                • Q:

                  What is the difference between Nano Titanium technology and Tourmaline Titanium technology? Are they both ION tech? Do they dry equally as quick?
                  Asked on 6/1/2017 by Christy from Va Beach

                  1 answer

                  • Brand Expert

                    A:

                    Yes, both Nano Titanium and Tourmaline Titanium dry hair in the same amount of time but just utilize different technologies. Both Nano Titanium and Tourmaline Titanium have ionic technology.

                    Here are the main differences between Nano Titanium and Tourmaline Titanium

                    Tourmaline Titanium Technology:
                    Tourmaline is a semi-precious mineral which generates only negative ions when heated. The TT has internal parts that are molded with tourmaline. The tourmaline technology maximizes the negative ion output and closes the cuticle layer, creating smooth hair. A Tourmaline blow dryer has been found to blow dry up to 40 percent more quickly than a non-tourmaline.

                    Nano Titanium Technology:
                    Ions refer to any particle with a negative or positive charge. Negative ions interact with wet hair by breaking up the water molecules, allowing the smaller droplets to penetrate the outer layer of the hair shaft. Ionic technology takes a natural occurring phenomenon when hair is wet and breaks up the water molecules, allowing the smaller droplets to penetrate the outer layer of the hair shaft.
