    This dryer works well for me, both at home and for travel. It is lightweight (great for my arthritic shoulder) and has a folding handle, which makes storage and packing easy. It comes with a detachable diffuser, which was my reason for purchasing this model over other brands.

    Comments about Hot Tools Dryer Travel Purple #HT1044:

    I love my larger Hot Tools dryer but needed a smaller version for travel. I have fine, curly hair so must use a diffuser or the curls just blow away. This dryer comes with a diffuser but the blower is so high that it still blows my curls out. I tried the diffuser from my larger dryer as it has less holes for the air to go through but the blower still manages to blow too hard through it. If there was a low setting for the blower I would give it 5 stars.

              I was at the gym and opened my brand-new Hot Tools travel hair dryer for the first time and plugged it in. Nothing. I tried 3 other outlets. Still nothing. I was caught with wet hair on a winter day when it was 5 degrees. I do not recommend this product if you want a functioning product.

                Have short, thick hair, and wanted something light an easy to use. I also did not want to have to have a bulky dryer to pack when I travel, so wanted something that would do double duty. This works great so far, and folds up nicely. It also came with a diffuser, which is something I needed. It is doing the job perfectly for what I need.

                    Love how light weight this dryer is and still powerful. It smooths my hair with the ionic capability. I dried my hair with this dryer and a round brush and someone at work asked me what kind of straightening iron I use....I didn't! Love how compact it is with dual voltage. It will be coming with me on my business trips to Japan.

                          On the handle of the dryer, the part that comes in contact with your palm, there is a black screw that says 125v or 250v and all one does when using it in Europe is to turn the voltage to 250v. This can be done with a flat head screwdriver, a stiff fingernail or even a paperclip to turn it.

                          One will need a plug adapter depending on the country that one is in. There is a switch that changes the dryer from 125V to 250V on the handle of the dryer that makes it compatible with European standards. That’s how one adjusts the voltage.
