        This blow dryer is worth every penny it left my hair silky smooth and dried it in half the time I have mid length hair and it only took about 15 minutes to blow dry in sections with a round brush

        Comments about BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Portofino Dryer:

        Did not dry my hair fast at all. Actually I was disappointed with its performance for the price. I have purchased expensive dryers in the past and have been very impressed but this one was a let down. Very heavy to hold as well.

                I have medium length, naturally curly hair that I blow out on a weekly basis. My hair is dry and can easily go a week without washing, sometimes longer. I had been using my old standby Conair dryer for years and it never gave me problems, but I had the suspicion I could really cut down my 1 hour drying time if I invested in a quality dryer. I bought this one on a whim after seeing it in an email ad, and I am so glad I did. It is incredible. I cut my blow out time IN HALF and my hair is smoother and sleeker than ever. I would not recommend this for those who don't need a really powerful dryer-- unless of course you want to spend $100+ just for the heck of it. But if you do a full blow out on a regular basis, have a longer drying time, or any other reason that a typical drugstore blow dryer won't cut it, give this a shot. I fully expect to use this for years and have many weeks of great hair because of it. It was worth every penny.

                    Nice dryer...lightweight & quiet. Except...the on/off, speed, heat buttons are on the handle of the dryer & causes me to change the settings when I don't intend to! As you hold the dryer, it's way too easy to either turn down the speed or change the heat setting. Otherwise, I'm very pleased. Hopefully, the dryer will last with the Italian motor. Cord is long enough without being too long.

                              The cord on the BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Portofino dryer is designed for the professional, and features a heavy duty construction with a reinforced rubber housing as the cord exits the dryer housing. If it is the nature of a particular user to continually twist the dryer in the same rotation, it would not be a bad idea to "unwind" the cord by reverse-rotating the dryer a couple of times at the conclusion of the service – the cord does not have a swivel feature that would be found on a hair straightener – but the cord twisting should not be a problem with this professional use dryer.

                              The Nano Titanium Dryer is an extremely lightweight dryer that uses a high-torque motor to generate professional performance. The Portofino Dryer, handcrafted in Italy, provides improved air performance and drying power with an Italian AC motor. It also lasts significantly longer and has a more durable power cord.
