          Comments about Hot Tools NexGen Ionic Dryer:

          I had needed a new dryer.for quite some time, and had been using my mother in laws vintage print Hot Tools dryer. I loved hers and wanted a hot tools as well. She got me the tourmaline 3000 for xmas and I hated it. The heat would change from hot to cold every min or so. I took it back and purchased this dryer for 2x the price. My hair is dry in no time, and it is always so shiny and healthy looking after. Especially when i use the Coconut Joe serum it came with. The only downside is how heavy it is. My wrist tends to ache after drying my hair, maybe its from the weird angled handle. That being said, I am still more than happy to have a dryer that I love.

                Fantastic dryer

                By hapachick77

                from Federal Way, WA

                Pros

                • Dries Fast
                • Handle Not Ergo Friendly
                • Leaves hair smooth

                Comments about Hot Tools NexGen Ionic Dryer:

                I had a Hot Tools dryer before and remember it being the most durable one I have ever had, so I splurged and bought this dryer. I have long semi-wavy hair that I usually blow dry and then flat iron. I hate the amount of time it takes to blow dry and especially when a blow dryer overheats and starts burning my scalp. This dryer dries fast without burning and leaves my hair silky and smooth. I don't even need to flat iron it after.

                The only downside is the handle - it is not super ergo-friendly. It is curved and I'm not sure why. Perhaps this is more comfortable for some people, but I've found that my hand and wrist feel strained after I am done. I don't have arthritis or carpel tunnel, so I would probably not recommend it for someone with conditions like those. They should fix the handle and then it will be the perfect blow dryer.

                  Comments about Hot Tools NexGen Ionic Dryer:

                  I got this as a gift and I couldn't believe what an awesome hair dryer this tool is. Dries my hair fast and leaves my curly hair shiny. I love it, I don't think I can travel without it now, no other dryer will ever make me happy anymore. And the Coconut Jo it comes with it it's the most amazing serum I have ever put on my hair. My hair never feels greasy or heavy and when I wash my hair after using it, I never have trouble with residue after I shampoo.

                      The back cap is removable and that and the lint cover can be cleaned, either by blowing away the lint or using an old toothbrush to brush and blow away.

                      A:

                      The unique coconut and jojoba serum that is in the bottle packed into the dryer box is what you use on your hair. The essence of the coconut and jojoba oil that is in the dryer will gradually wear off.

                      A:

                      It weighs 16 oz. It weighs more than most retail hair dryers because it has an AC motor that is used by styling professionals because it has a longer lifespan.

                      A:

                      This is a full size dryer. The handle does not fold. The fan is the strongest on the market, as this is an AC motor dryer, which means it is more powerful, quieter, and longer lasting than most hair dryers. There are two temperature settings, low and high, with two speed settings for each temperature setting. This dryer, because it’s an AC motor, has a true cool shot which will cool quickly.
