Disappointed in how it dries my hair

      Comments about Hot Tools Online Only Tempest 2000 Salon Turbo IONIC Dryer:

      I bought this to replace a cheaper model in which the motor dies and because it's one of the few blow dryers with a comb attachment. The low heat setting takes forever to dry hair and he medium setting is too hot. I've experienced breakage and my hair feels like a brillo pad after drying. I've changed my hair produces several times to compensate for how much stress this blow dryer puts on my hair with limited success. If there were another model with a comb attachment, I'd throw this one out.

        I have had this dryer for a couple of years and have always used the diffuser because I have naturally curly hair that gets really frizzy, however the diffuser ALWAYS falls off. I feel like that shouldn't be a problem since it came with the dryer.

          Comments about Hot Tools Online Only Tempest 2000 Salon Turbo IONIC Dryer:

          I got this dryer on suggestion from an Ulta employee, and I wanted to like it so bad, but it just didn't work for me. Going from the Babyliss Porcelain Ceramic to this, I could definitely feel a difference in the air flow and heat. This one was just a bit too weak, and not hot enough for my liking. I did love how lightweight it was, and the concentrator attachment fit like a dream (didn't fall off, but was loose enough to twist around as needed), but it just took more time than I wanted to spend to dry my hair. I take my showers late at night, so I wanted something that could thoroughly dry my hair, and quickly. If you're looking for something gentle on your hair, this could be a great option, but for someone impatient like me, I'd say look around for other options.

            I got this dryer because the other hot tools dryer that I wanted is out of stock. This dryer is OK but I plan on exchanging it for the dryer I originally wanted as soon as it becomes available. This one took forever to dry my hair and is not worth the money.

              I purchased a more expensive hairdryer of this same brand previously. That one is very heavy. And the attachments fall off, so I never use them. This one is great. Very light weight. Attachments stay on. The medium heat can get a little warmer than I'd like, but still works great for the price.

                  Is this lighter in Wright than my current 2000 black model. What is weight of black 2000 model? I currently carry it in swim bag to pool daily & it's so heavy but need this quality dryer for my fine, frizzy hair. Hoping white is lighter version as it mentions being light in description but can't find weight on black model to compare. Thanks

                    From Hot Tools: "Yes, it is the same dryer. The Tempest 2000 was our original name for it, but the consumer didn't realize that it was the same product as our best selling Hot Tools Tourmaline Tools 2000 dryer, so we changed the name to more align them. The only difference is one is a glossy white and the other is a rubberized black with purple back cap. The perform identically!"
