    Comments about Hot Tools Tempest 2000 Salon Turbo IONIC Dryer:

    I have thick, wavy, long hair so I need a good hair dryer. The diffuser came with it and when I work the curls, it is an ordinary hair dryer. I thought for the wattage, price and that it is the ionic dryer my hair would have dried faster without the diffuser. I think my old $40.00 hair dryer did better.

      Comments about Hot Tools Tempest 2000 Salon Turbo IONIC Dryer:

      Was working great but all of a sudden quit working. Would not even blow dry my bangs. It smelled like it was trying to start smoking on the inside. Unplugged the blow dryer and let my hair go natural. Had to buy a different one. The warranty is not worth it. Ulta gives you 60 days and you have to retain the receipt and original box. They did not offer help to contact the company for warranty help. Cost way too much for not enough life. Didn't last a year.

        Comments about Hot Tools Tempest 2000 Salon Turbo IONIC Dryer:

        After being a sole drugstore blow dryer buyer I decided it was time to upgrade. My hair is thick, straight, and takes FOREVER to dry. After being overwhelmed at the choices and price range I stopped by Ulta to get advice. After discussing my hair type the lady recommended this or the Speedpro. As this was 1/2 the price and I've had good luck in the past with Hot Tools, I figured I'd try it. My hair dried quicker than it had previously (not sure on the 50% quicker claim, I've never timed it) and was about the same noise level as my previous Conair. The huge difference is how my hair feels. I've changed nothing in products but my hair feels so silky and healthy, it's unbelievable. It was also lightweight and easy to use. I'm thrilled with my purchase.

          Comments about Hot Tools Tempest 2000 Salon Turbo IONIC Dryer:

          I bought this after knowing I didn't want just a 'drugstore brand' blowdryer. Not knowing where to start and seeing too many options, my ULTA consultant helped me narrow it down by explaining features and letting me know what I did NOT need and what I should DEFINITELY look for. I've been very happy with it and feel like it's much easier on my hair than the 'drugstore brand' I'd been using before.

                Comments about Hot Tools Tempest 2000 Salon Turbo IONIC Dryer:

                I bought this hair dryer less than two weeks ago after my previous dryer broke (same model as my new dryer, just two years old). I had no problems with the previous dryer and I have healthy long hair. I changed nothing about my hair routine except replacing the dryer. I immediately noticed that it actually added drying time, made my hair a weird texture, and almost gave it greasy look even when just washed and dried. After only 6 uses I went to get my hair cut (10 days before my wedding, mind you) and my hair dresser was horrified! She kept pulling up sections of hair that were significantly shorter than other sections as 3-4 inches had broken off the bottom in certain areas. I returned it immediately, and definitely do not recommend purchasing!!

                  I was pleasantly surprised by this dryer. It dries my hair quickly without getting too hot. It's not that loud and is not heavy. I really like this brand as it is my second Hot Tools dryer.

                    After 11 years my previous hot tools hair dryer died. I decided to stick to the brand I knew. I almost wish my hair dryer died sooner. This one is very light, dried my hair in half the time, and I almost don't need to use my flat iron after. So far I love this hair dryer.

                          What is the difference between this dryer and the Tourmaline Tools 3000 Ionic Salon Dryer
                          Item #: 2273620?
                          I received the Tourmaline Tools 2000 Turbo Ionic® Dryer as a gift. I like the way my hair feels and it dries quickly but it doesn't straighten my hair enough.
                          I cannot tell the difference between these products.
                          Thanks!

                            The dryers are the same internally; the only difference is that they have different finishes on the outside.

                            This dryer is 1600 watts, making it quieter and more energy efficient while having powerful airflow and heat.
