    Comments about Hot Tools 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.

        Comments about Hot Tools Tempest 2000 Salon Turbo IONIC Dryer:

        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.

            I must say that I am happy with my purchase so far. It definetly dries my hair quicker than my Conair 1875. It does feels like it's not blowing enough heat but somehow does dry my hair quicker. I also did notice my hair feeling a little shiny and soft.

                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

                  A:

                  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!"

                How does this dryer compare to the Hot Tools Tourmaline IONIC Professional Dryer - item #2125789? They seem the same to me, they both use ionic technology but one also has the tourmaline. Is there an added benefit to that?

                  Great question! Internally, they perform identically. The only difference is the exterior design of each (glossy white vs. rubberized black).

                Item #: 2273620?
                I received the Tourmaline Tools 2000 Turbo Ionic® Dryer as a gift. I like the way my hair feels and it dries quickly but it doesn't straighten my hair enough.
                I cannot tell the difference between these products.
