        Replaced a Hot Tools dryer that fried and sparked at the base of the power cord. Bought this one and two weeks later the switch for blower settings would not work. Won't buy this brand again. For the price point, they should be better quality.

                This dryer does not get hot enough. I have short hair, and it took about 5 minutes on high to get it dry. Not acceptable so I exchanged it for Hot Tools Crimson Fade Turbo Ionic Salon Dryer.

                  I like the nozzle attachments and that the dryer has a texture that makes it easy to grip. The power button is a bit awkwardly placed though and I turn it off by accident all the time while I'm drying. It dries quickly but I don't think it prevents frizz.

                        • Q:

                          What is the difference between ceramic and ionic drying . What is better, does it depend on hair type? I'm looking for a dryer with good heat but not so much air flow. It seems I find the opposite. They blow my hair too hard and I can't get it into the brush without tangling but they don't get hot enough to make my wavey hair curl and stay curled or even give it a nice bend it just gets blown stright and flat even on the lower air setting. What wattage should I buy? FYI I love a retractable cord.

                            A:

                            You won't find a retractable cord in a Professional dryer, but there are ones with that at Ulta. Wattage is not an indicator of power. It really will indicate how quickly the dryer heats up, how loud it will be, and lastly how much energy it uses. The best indicator is trying a dryer out in an Ulta Beauty store on the plug and play wall.
                            The Tourmaline Ionic Dryer is Hot Tools' bestselling and one of their best performing dryers because it has two sources of negative ions which help dry the hair faster. One from an ion generator and the other when the tourmaline inside the dryer heats up. Ceramic dryers just mean that the air is passing through a ceramic grill before it gets to the hair, so it's a gentler way of imparting heat.
                            If you want your hair to continue to be wavy after you blow dry, then consider using a dryer with a diffuser. Set on high heat, low speed and you'll get the look you're seeking. Hope this helps! :-)

                            This professional dryer weighs 15 oz., which is less than one pound and qualifies the dryer as lightweight. It does come with the "comb" or "pik" (as the 2.5" spikes are called) that you can use as an attachment for additional styling options. We hope this info helps! :-)
