    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.

    good heat, no power

    This dryer gets very hot, but has no power behind it. Even at the highest setting, it seemed like a hotel dryer. I will be returning it shortly.

          Nice basic dryer--nabbed it on sale (definitely not worth full price, IMO). Feels a bit flimsy but gets the job done.

            I really love how lightweight this dryer is. Not much difference between medium and high heat, though it does a good job.

                    I love this dryer. It is quiet and light weight and just the right amount of "blow power". I just wish the control buttons were not on the handle where my thumb goes. It's not the biggest deal but that's what I would change.

                              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.
