    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.

        Holy smokes! I was really iffy about spending so much money on a blowdryer. I was honestly just tired of buying ones that give up on you so quickly. I was recommended to buy this one by one of the girls that works there. I honestly am hooked! It usually took my hair about 30 mins to rough dry and an hour or more to completely dry. This blowdryer sped that up to 20 mins! 100% dry in 20 mins! Totally worth every cent!

            My hair looks and feels wonderful with the Rapido. With previous dryers, I typically I would dry then curl my hair - my hair was never smooth enough, no matter how much product I used. I was convinced it was my hair being damaged. Now, with this Rapido dryer, I can dry and it leaves my hair super smooth and shiny! I am enjoying many more straight hair days than I ever did before! From root to ends, my hair is lush!

                Comments about BaBylissPRO Rapido Dryer:

                I cannot say enough positive things about this hair dryer! I did a lot of research and was looking for a powerful but lightweight hair dryer that would cut down on drying time and reduce frizz. This dryer went above and beyond my expectations. My recent dryer was a Hot Tools but before that I had a Chi Pro and this blows both of those out of the water. It's super lightweight and well designed. I love that it comes with multiple nozzles. I have thick wavy hair and it cut my drying time by 10 minutes. It also produced a style superior to that of a professional blow out. My hair is more shiny and frizz resistant. On top of that my hair holds the style longer than it does with other dryers. Also, the cool shot is much more cold than I thought possible so it does a great job setting the style.

                The only downfall is that it doesn't come with a diffuser. Overall it is a wonderful choice!

                    I had a cheap hairdryer and my hair was breaking and fizzing very badly. Since using the babyliss Rapido my hair has improved 100%. It is so shiny, soft and full of body. Loving the overall healthy look of my hair.
                    The heat for styling is just right, it dries my hair in half the time (I have fine hair but a lot of it).

                        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.

                        A:

                        The ion generator in the Rapido Dryer cannot be turned off. Ions smooth the cuticle making the hair shiny and protected. They also make the hair dry faster. The texture you are feeling from your hair being "non-ionized" is likely a slightly abraded cuticle, which is not necessarily a terrible thing – but that texture could also be achieved through the use of appropriate styling products – resulting in the benefits of ionization, along with the texture you desire.
