      Comments about Hot Tools The Gold Touch Turbo Ionic Dryer:

      This a great hair dryer. It dries my hair very fast, which is a good thing b/c it is very thick, curly, and wavy. The pic is a little longer than I'm used to but still works good. The dryer is also lighter than my last one, which I just through away since having it for wayyyy tooo long. A great investment.

        Comments about Hot Tools The Gold Touch Turbo Ionic Dryer:

        This hair dryer is great for people with thinner hair like myself, and drys hair very quickly w/ little damage. My girlfriend has thick hair and said it was not enough power/speed to get her hair dry.

        Keeps hair healthy by not over-drying.

        poor design

        By ES1021

        from NJ

        Comments about Hot Tools The Gold Touch Turbo Ionic Dryer:

        Like others have noted, the controls are in a bad location, resulting in changing the temp or speed by accident. Also, I just find it uncomfortable to hold, perhaps because of the curved handle.
        I'll be returning it.

            Comments about Hot Tools The Gold Touch Turbo Ionic Dryer:

            I have very long, thick course hair. Not super curly and very layered. I wanted to do my own blowouts, but could definitely not afford the T3 so I got thisblowdryer and I'm very happy with my purchase. It gets really hot and comes with the nozzle to help control air flow. I was able to blow-dry my own hair in 40 minutes

            Comments about Hot Tools The Gold Touch Turbo Ionic Dryer:

            I bought this dryer as an upgrade to a 2 year old cheap I got at the drug store. I typically love Hot Tools products, but I'm afraid this one was a huge disappointment.

            It takes LONGER to dry my very fine/thin hair and the buttons are right on the side, which means you are constantly flipping them when you grip the hair dryer. Also, I'm not sure if it's because there isn't a guard screen on the back or what, but it sucks your hair into the motor. At least twice each time I dry my hair it will get pulled in and then broken off.

            If I had the receipt I would be returning it.

              The heat on this hair dryer was not hot enough and then it would not stay consistent with the heat. Felt like I was pressing the cool air button when I wasn't.

                    This hair dryer is an upgrade from my drugstore brand. It dries much, much quicker. I have thick, wavy hair and it dried it in half the time, plus left it straighter than normal after. I barely had to use my flat iron on it! I would mos definately recommend! The only con is the location of the 'cool shot button'-I kept accidentally pushing it. The concentrator also stayed on (my other one would constantly fall off) & was durable.

                        A:

                        A universal diffuser should fit this dryer and any other with a round European-style nozzle.
