      Comments about BaByliss Nano Titanium Portofino Dryer:

      Very easy to use, extremely efficient in getting my hair dry and straightened. Had a CHI before and this blows the CHI out of the water. I normally would not have spent this much money on a hair dryer but this was definitely worth every cent.

          Comments about BaByliss Nano Titanium Portofino Dryer:

          After 5 years my black Babyliss Portofino finally gave out. After tons of research and reading reviews of every dryer out there, I decided to get this one again. This dries my super thick, long hair in under 10 minutes. It doesn't feel nearly as hot as the old one, but dries my hair even faster. It's lighter than the old one but still feels a tad heavy. Overall, the older model of this dryer was amazing for 5 years, and this new one looks to be even more awesome.

            Worth every penny. I have course curly frizzy hair that has blonde highlights. This dryer gave my hair shine, dried it in half the time completely! and is easy to manage lightweight. I use it daily. Very happy I purchased it

                            This hairdryer is wonderful! Dries my hair in half the time, but leaves it shiny and soft instead of frizzy and dry like my other ones in the past. Well worth the money because it will last forever. Very lightweight as well.

                                          There are no functional or performance differences between the black Portofino Dryer and the blue Portofino Dryer. The only difference is color. Many people prefer the blue dryer as it matches other components of the BaByliss Nano Titanium family.

                                        How does this product compare to the BaByliss Carrera? I bought the Carrera about 10 years ago (when they were much more expensive). I have loved it but I literally wore it out. I can buy another Carrera ceramic, but I'm wondering if it is worth the upgrade for this and how it is different (better). Thanks!

                                          The Carrera is a great dryer, but the Portofino is a step up for a number of reasons. The Nano Titanium family of products is the premier series from BaByliss. The Portofino is made in Italy, and its high quality AC motor has a longer life than standard hair dryers. It is 2000 watts versus Carrera's 1900, and uses Nano Titanium technology to conduct heat evenly and protect from damaging hot spots. The Portofino also comes with 3 concentrator nozzles and a diffuser. BaByliss' confidence in the workmanship of the Portofino dryer is demonstrated with a limited 4-year warranty, versus Carrera's 3-year. If you liked the Carrera, you'll love the Portofino.

                                          The Portofino dryer is powered by a high-end Italian AC motor that was specifically designed for use in this hairdryer, which generates less disruption of air. This creates great air pressure and airflow, while running smoother and quieter than others.

                                          Yes! This dryer features a 2000-watt Italian AC motor for maximum airflow to speed drying times, plus Nano Titanium™ technology that generates negative ions to remove any static electricity in the hair and close the cuticle for smooth, shiny results.

                                          No, Nano Titanium Portofino Dryer does not include a comb attachment. It includes diffuser and concentrator nozzle attachments.

                                        Does it use a Babyliss straightening pick or can you buy any kind?

                                          BaByliss does not offer a straightening pick attachment for the Portofino dryer. Generally, a universal grip straightening pick will not work on this dryer design due to the sharp angle at the end of barrel.

                                          The Portofino Dryer incorporates titanium and ionic technologies. Titanium conducts and distributes high heat more evenly to protect hair's luster and protect from damaging hot spots. The true ionic generator emits millions of negative ions to reduce frizz and static electricity for smooth, shiny and manageable hair, while helping to break down water molecules to speed up drying time.
