        I was torn between this one and the touch screen chi which let's face it is just appealing to the techie in most people, I asked for input from one of the sales associates in the store and they really were knowledgeable and helpful in reiterating the fact that the more parts something has the more likely it is to break, and that these dryers have a very long estimated life span of 10,000 hours which is refreshing. I hate buying something cheap and it breaking...hopefully this wont let me down. It wasn't cheap!!

            Best investment ever. I was doubting to buy this but it was a great choice. I have thin hair so I put it on the medium setting not to do too much damage and it works fine. You can even keep it on the cold setting without holding a button. If you have arthritis this is good for you, not too heavy.

                  After choosing an expensive hairdryer and not realizing that high wattage did not equal high heat I waited way too long to buy the hair dryer of my dreams. My stylist recommended the brand because of the motor. I liked the heat and speed of dry. Decided to purchase with my 20% off and now see myself enjoying my long thick hair and swimming much more this summer! I love it!

                      I bought this blow dryer and loved it from the first use. Light and way more quiet than my prior dryer. The cold setting actually gives a good cold shot for finishing.

                          I am trying to decide between the Nano Titanium Portofino Dryer and the Rapido. I have pretty curly hair.... not quite 3C curls as they are fairly easy to manage. My hair actually isn't thick, but takes quite a bit of time to dry. I am trying to find what Babyliss is best for curly hair, cutting frizz, and cutting dry time, and also would work if I wanted to straighten, although not often. Would the Rapido be best or Nano Titanium Portofino Dryer? I was alos condiering the volare but decided that based of research it was between the Rapido and Nano Titanium Portofino Dryer

                            All 3 dryers - the BaBylissPRO Volare, Rapido, and Brava have identical Ion levels. The high heat setting on all 3 dryers is also the same, but the Volare and the Brava offer a Turbo Speed Setting for a slight increase in air pressure, which helps the hair dry faster. The Rapido dryer is one of the more quieter dryers out of the Volare and Brava.

                            The main differences between the BaBylissPRO Italia Brava dryer and the Rapido dryer is as follows:

                            Rapido
                            • Over 5,000 hour life
                            • Lower vibration
                            • Significantly lighter weight – 14.5 oz

                            ItaliaBrava
                            • 10,000 hour life
                            • Lock-in turbo button for added air pressure
                            • 19.1 oz

                            Both are Italian made dryers with 4 year warranties.

                            The BaBylissPRO Rapido Dryer is our fastest drying and lightest weight dryer. Unfortunately we do not calculate heat temperatures with our dryers, but we can assure you that it produces enough heat to dry any hair type quickly - resulting in less damage to the hair.

                        • Q:

                          Is there a diffuser you would recommend to attach to the Rapido? Not the concentrator so that come w it, but a large diffuser.

                            There is a BaBylissPRO Rapido Dryer diffuser available, but unfortunately it is not carried by Ulta at this time.
