Fail!

Comments about Hot Tools Tourmaline IONIC Professional Dryer:

I only dry 2x each month on slightly damp hair ( I sit under a hooded dryer first). I don't use the comb attachment or high heat. I only use a brush or tension method to stretch my type 4 hair, so the dryer did not get a lot of use. After about 6 months the motor started humming and grinding! I've read other reviews that this dryer is a bust and I must concur! Don't waste your money!

        I have four other blow dryers in my house trying to find the right one. That doesn't account for the ones I returned. With this dryer, I have finally found one that I am totally satisfied with. I was having problems with my shoulders, but not with this dryer. I love it!!!

                    I only use maybe once a week, I don't like to dry my hair, but find it necessary on occasion. It is quite, quick, and seems to keep the frizz under control.

                    • Q:

                      What is the difference between ceramic and ionic drying . What is better, does it depend on hair type? I'm looking for a dryer with good heat but not so much air flow. It seems I find the opposite. They blow my hair too hard and I can't get it into the brush without tangling but they don't get hot enough to make my wavey hair curl and stay curled or even give it a nice bend it just gets blown stright and flat even on the lower air setting. What wattage should I buy? FYI I love a retractable cord.

                        A:

                        You won't find a retractable cord in a Professional dryer, but there are ones with that at Ulta. Wattage is not an indicator of power. It really will indicate how quickly the dryer heats up, how loud it will be, and lastly how much energy it uses. The best indicator is trying a dryer out in an Ulta Beauty store on the plug and play wall.
                        The Tourmaline Ionic Dryer is Hot Tools' bestselling and one of their best performing dryers because it has two sources of negative ions which help dry the hair faster. One from an ion generator and the other when the tourmaline inside the dryer heats up. Ceramic dryers just mean that the air is passing through a ceramic grill before it gets to the hair, so it's a gentler way of imparting heat.
                        If you want your hair to continue to be wavy after you blow dry, then consider using a dryer with a diffuser. Set on high heat, low speed and you'll get the look you're seeking. Hope this helps! :-)

                        This professional dryer weighs 15 oz., which is less than one pound and qualifies the dryer as lightweight. It does come with the "comb" or "pik" (as the 2.5" spikes are called) that you can use as an attachment for additional styling options. We hope this info helps! :-)
