Comments about Hot Tools Ionic Turbo Salon Dryer:

I bought it because it was so light weight, which when you have long hair is a huge bonus. I would have given it 5 stars for the fact the attachment does not seat tight enough on the end. It moves too easily, so I have to constantly stop and reposition to finish drying my hair.

    I bought this to leave at my Mom's house when I visit. It will not get a lot of use so I didn't want to spend a lot. I was disappointed that it doesn't genrate more heat. If I were using it daily I would return it.

    Comments about Hot Tools Ionic Turbo Salon Dryer:

    I wanted a low cost hair dryer to leave at my mom's house for when I visit. I tested it in the store and is seemed it would be hot enough. It's not great. I'm disappointed in the level of heat when using the styling nozzle. If I were going to use it daily I definitely would have returned it.

          Would not recommend

          By Lindsay

          from San Diego

          Comments about Hot Tools Ionic Turbo Salon Dryer:

          Sorry to say but went back today... I used a cheap hairdryer for years that worked better than this one. First of all I have fine thin hair and for some reason this hairdryer took forever to dry and always left my hair really staticky. Also the nozzle constantly moved so if you lightly hit it with your brush or head while using a round brush it would swivel around and I would constantly have to adjust it back and it was hot to touch... Also the cool shot was extremely easy to push in which where your hand holds the dryer so I found myself holding down on it by accident. Never had a hairdryer that irritated me ...lol

            Comments about Hot Tools Ionic Turbo Salon Dryer:

            I really wanted to like this dryer. My Rusk Speed Freak Dryer stopped working and I was looking to replace it with something less expensive. I tried this one in the store and thought it might work well. After using the Speed Freak for two years, I thought this dryer took WAY TOO LONG to dry my hair. I admit that I am spoiled from the Speed Freak. It just gets the job done in literally half the time. I do love the weight of this dryer. It was like holding nothing compared to the Speed Freak, which is very heavy. But that is basically the only thing I liked about it. I returned it and purchased the Rusk Super Freak, which is slightly different than the Speed Freak but still a much better dryer, in my opinion.

              Has anyone used this hair dryer to diffuse curly hair and how did it treat curly?

                A:

                The Ionic Turbo Salon Dryer accepts most universal diffuser attachments, so you can certainly use it to diffuse curls! Its ionic technology helps to reduce frizz, so curls are better defined. Enjoy!

            • Q:

              Aside from the price point, what are the main differences between this dryer and the Hot Tools Tourmaline Turbo Ionic Dryer? Weights/wattages/warranty/real benefits?
              A little background for my usage needs: I have arthritis in my hands and need something lightweight/small. I have shoulder length fine thin hair. I like to blow out my hair often at home for maximum volume and sometimes then curl it.

                A:

                Both of these dryers have a one year manufacturer's warranty. Both of them are ionic, however the Tourmaline Turbo Ionic dryer produces more negative ions to help dry hair quickly. That's because it does it by actively producing ions with an internal ion generator as well as passively when the tourmaline inside the dryer is heated by turning it on. If your hair is thin, then either of these dryers would work just as well. The weight of the Ionic Turbo Salon Dryer will easier for you to work with if you have arthritis.
