Comments about Hot Tools Tourmaline IONIC Professional Dryer:

After my first use this morning, I'm impressed enough to write a review for this hair dryer! It is so lightweight I was amazed at how well it dried my hair-- and how quickly too. The different settings are really good since I like to dry my hair on medium or low heat and blast it with cool air. I also love that it comes with 3 different attachments. I only used the concentrated nozzle so far, but I can't wait to use the styling pick and diffuser. This tool makes my hair feel SO soft and it looks so healthy now. This hair dryer really is the best bang for your buck!!

      Comments about Hot Tools Tourmaline IONIC Professional Dryer:

      I love this blow dryer!! Its so light weight. It now takes me only 40 minutes to straighten my medium/long wavy hair. Used to take me way longer with my old revlon dryer. So far I have only used the concentrator but I'm sure the diffuser and pic work just great. The buttons are in perfect place for me as I jump around on different heat setting and then the cool shot for my hair, so they are very convenient. I wouldnt change a thing about it.

          The dryer was not as hot as it should be. After 4 uses, it malfunctioned Could not turn it on again. I should have paid attention to the other low reviews. It's no wonder it is now on sale. Feels like it was made of plastic.

            Comments about Hot Tools Tourmaline IONIC Professional Dryer:

            I've wanted a second one of this model (1043) for years, since my first one still works perfectly and has always produced the best results of any dryer I've had -- and I worry it will give out sometime after the model is discontinued. I finally picked one up in-store last week and it looks, feels and sounds the same as my old one, but with a few minor changes in the writing on the dryer body.

            The heat and speed setting buttons are all the same, too, but the new one did not heat the same at all. Actually, it had NO heat in "low" (so the same as the cool shot button), barely any heat in "medium" (only feels a little warm w/in 1 inch of barrel) and only had any significant heat (but not hot) on "high". I even test ran the new and old together and confirmed that only my old one delivered 4 evenly calibrated settings, including the non-heat cool shot.

            I've seen some other reviews that make the same complaint. So, maybe they've changed the way this model heats, or maybe there are just some bad ones out there. I'm returning this one, but will try out a few more of the same model and see what I find.

              I use this product every single day, I have traveled with my best friend she always uses my dryer cause likes how it leaves her very thick hair and the short time it takes to dry it, I recently purchased another dryer and I am giving it to my friend for Christmas. It's light weight and great for your suit case.

                I loved this blow drier until I got ready for work this morning and the blower was dead. Had to go to work with wet hair and no styling. No warning it was going out. Just simply stopped after less than 3 years. My old, cheap blow dryer lasted at least 15 years. Very disappointed in the quality of life.

                I would love this hair dryer, but when I have it on the hot setting, it starts out hot, then suddenly there is cool air blowing. I have to keep hitting the switch to make it get hot again. Very annoying!!!

                      A:

                      This dryer does not have any ceramic material in it.

                      What having ceramic does in a dryer is generate far infrared heat that can be gentler on one's hair. However, the most important feature is that the dryer be ionic and generate negative ions that aid in the drying of the hair. A short time to dry one's hair means that there is less time that one's hair is having hot air blowing on it and essentially drying it out.

                      All Hot Tools Professional hair dryers contain an Ionic generator that will create this effect and keep the hair retaining its own natural moisture. The introduction of ion was a huge technological improvement in hair drying!
