    Overall I think the blow dryer is a quality product. It does the job of adequately blow drying my hair and its easy to use. I wish it did a better job at reducing frizz.

      Comments about Hot Tools Tourmaline IONIC Professional Dryer:

      I was extremely dissapointed by the lack of heat from this dryer. It took me a Long time to dry my hair compared to the Conair dryer I currently owned. Needless to say, it did not meet my requirements and I am still in search of a better dryer.

          Comments about Hot Tools Tourmaline IONIC Professional Dryer:

          I had to get a new hairdryer when my Chi decided to only let off cold air. I was in a hurry trying to find one since my hair is a hot mess when I don't blow dry it. I found this and decided to go with it since I have never had anything wrong with any of my Hot Tools. I am VERY glad I bought this dryer. It dries my hair so much faster than my Chi did. There are three heat settings: low, medium, and high. The high can get a little too hot so I go with the medium and it works just fine for me. Hot Tools will now be my go to for hair styling tools.

                    Comments about Hot Tools Tourmaline IONIC Professional Dryer:

                    I purchased this hairdryer for a second time recently. The first one I owned was great, so I did not hesitate to buy it again when the motor died on my first one after a few years of use. HOWEVER, Hot Tools must have changed something, because the design is slightly different now and even on the highest, hottest setting, this new dryer barely even gets warm. It takes forever to dry my hair with this because of the low heat, and my hair ends up frizzy and disgusting. I am going to try to return it and try to find a new brand that actually works.

                            I have very fine hair which tends to frizz after drying with blow dryer. Would this product be good for me. I've noticed that most of the comments are favorable regarding the frizz issue. Let me know your thoughts, please.

                              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!
