Lots of air movement, but not very hot

        Comments about Hot Tools Tempest 2000 Salon Turbo IONIC Dryer:

        I love how much air movement I get with this blow dryer. For that reason, the price was worth it. However, it doesn't heat up my hair as much as other blow dryers I have used. My hair definitely still drys fast, but I keep wishing it heated up a little more. I suppose that the lack of heat means less damage on my hair, so I am trying to convince myself that I can do without the heat. Still, I wish I had the option to have it at truly what I consider a "high" heat so I could flip between high/medium/low when I felt like it. I keep it on the high setting all the time and use the cool shot button. So, even those it has all these settings, I don't make use of medium or low at all. Overall, I like this product but don't feel like I get to make use of all the settings.

            I was looking for a dryer that reduced the static electricity in my hair and this one did the trick. The sales person was so helpful in my choosing a new dryer. I would recommend this one. It was in the medium price range.

              I have thick, wavy, long hair so I need a good hair dryer. The diffuser came with it and when I work the curls, it is an ordinary hair dryer. I thought for the wattage, price and that it is the ionic dryer my hair would have dried faster without the diffuser. I think my old $40.00 hair dryer did better.

                Was working great but all of a sudden quit working. Would not even blow dry my bangs. It smelled like it was trying to start smoking on the inside. Unplugged the blow dryer and let my hair go natural. Had to buy a different one. The warranty is not worth it. Ulta gives you 60 days and you have to retain the receipt and original box. They did not offer help to contact the company for warranty help. Cost way too much for not enough life. Didn't last a year.

                  After being a sole drugstore blow dryer buyer I decided it was time to upgrade. My hair is thick, straight, and takes FOREVER to dry. After being overwhelmed at the choices and price range I stopped by Ulta to get advice. After discussing my hair type the lady recommended this or the Speedpro. As this was 1/2 the price and I've had good luck in the past with Hot Tools, I figured I'd try it. My hair dried quicker than it had previously (not sure on the 50% quicker claim, I've never timed it) and was about the same noise level as my previous Conair. The huge difference is how my hair feels. I've changed nothing in products but my hair feels so silky and healthy, it's unbelievable. It was also lightweight and easy to use. I'm thrilled with my purchase.

                    I bought this after knowing I didn't want just a 'drugstore brand' blowdryer. Not knowing where to start and seeing too many options, my ULTA consultant helped me narrow it down by explaining features and letting me know what I did NOT need and what I should DEFINITELY look for. I've been very happy with it and feel like it's much easier on my hair than the 'drugstore brand' I'd been using before.

                          I bought this hair dryer less than two weeks ago after my previous dryer broke (same model as my new dryer, just two years old). I had no problems with the previous dryer and I have healthy long hair. I changed nothing about my hair routine except replacing the dryer. I immediately noticed that it actually added drying time, made my hair a weird texture, and almost gave it greasy look even when just washed and dried. After only 6 uses I went to get my hair cut (10 days before my wedding, mind you) and my hair dresser was horrified! She kept pulling up sections of hair that were significantly shorter than other sections as 3-4 inches had broken off the bottom in certain areas. I returned it immediately, and definitely do not recommend purchasing!!

                            I was pleasantly surprised by this dryer. It dries my hair quickly without getting too hot. It's not that loud and is not heavy. I really like this brand as it is my second Hot Tools dryer.

                              What is the difference between this dryer and the Tourmaline Tools 3000 Ionic Salon Dryer
                              Item #: 2273620?
                              I received the Tourmaline Tools 2000 Turbo Ionic® Dryer as a gift. I like the way my hair feels and it dries quickly but it doesn't straighten my hair enough.
                              I cannot tell the difference between these products.
                              Thanks!

                                The dryers are the same internally; the only difference is that they have different finishes on the outside.

                                This dryer is 1600 watts, making it quieter and more energy efficient while having powerful airflow and heat.
