    I use this every day.
    Disappointed that my ladybone only lasted 8 months.
    If I only get 8 months out if this one. It will be the ladybone I purchase from Ulta.

        This is my second tourmaline IONIC dryer. The first one lasted 3 years being used almost daily. I love that this dryer has a low heat and low airflow that is truly low. Most are too forceful which causes my curls and waves to straighten. This one is just low enough to encourage my curls but still dries my hair nicely.

          Comments about Hot Tools Tourmaline IONIC Professional Dryer:

          I was very impressed with this dryer! I have very thick, wavy hair that used to take way too long to dry. This lightweight dryer definitely cut down drying time, and it made my hair feel much softer than other hair dryers. I love the diffuser attachment for when I scrunch my hair! It gives plenty of volume and keeps my curls intact. My hair was a bit frizzy/poofy after using the dryer with the pick attachment and with the smoothing attachment to prepare for straightening/curling, but I am able to straighten or curl my hair much more effectively after using this hair dryer compared to my previous dryer. Overall, I think this hair dryer is well worth the investment, and I would definitely recommend it for thick, unmanageable hair!

            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!

                • 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! :-)
