            Comments about Hot Tools Tourmaline IONIC Professional Dryer:

            I purchased this hairdryer for a second time recently. The first one I owned was great, so I did not hesitate to buy it again when the motor died on my first one after a few years of use. HOWEVER, Hot Tools must have changed something, because the design is slightly different now and even on the highest, hottest setting, this new dryer barely even gets warm. It takes forever to dry my hair with this because of the low heat, and my hair ends up frizzy and disgusting. I am going to try to return it and try to find a new brand that actually works.

                        I have very thick curly hair, and this dryer does not even come close to getting it dry in a timely fashion. The power is lacking and the nozzle is narrow, so practically no air comes out whatsoever. I returned it, and I am still looking for a new blow dryer to replace my old one. The search continues!

                        This dryer does a good job for a few months, until it
                        starts to buzz, louder each day, until I have to get
                        a new one. It hasn't been dropped, and it is set down
                        on a towel on the counter. This has happened more than
                        once with Hot Tools dryers. I would only recommend it
                        if they can eliminate the eventual loud buzzing sound.

                          I have very fine hair which tends to frizz after drying with blow dryer. Would this product be good for me. I've noticed that most of the comments are favorable regarding the frizz issue. Let me know your thoughts, please.

                            Yes, this dryer is ideal for frizz-prone hair because it features ionic technology that infuses hair with moisture and shine, reduces frizz, and makes hair smoother and more manageable. It's a great choice for you! :-)

                            A:

                            This dryer does not have any ceramic material in it.

                            What having ceramic does in a dryer is generate far infrared heat that can be gentler on one's hair. However, the most important feature is that the dryer be ionic and generate negative ions that aid in the drying of the hair. A short time to dry one's hair means that there is less time that one's hair is having hot air blowing on it and essentially drying it out.

                            All Hot Tools Professional hair dryers contain an Ionic generator that will create this effect and keep the hair retaining its own natural moisture. The introduction of ion was a huge technological improvement in hair drying!
