          My 15 year old and I need a dryer that has some good heat to straighten out as we dry our hair…hers is very thick, mine is medium thick but resistant.
          This one feels way hotter than last ones for some reason and seems to do the trick and also seems to lessen the time it takes in doing so.
          At first I thought I needed to spring for a salon product, but realized that it isn't the wattage that matters, its the brand and style.
          This one is still not more than 1875 but works well!

              I loved this dryer, but it died after only using it for about a year and a half. :(

                  Love this dryer! Powerful, lightweight, grippy, and plenty of temperature/power selections. The cord is a bit long and cumbersome but other than that it's great!

                    This is a fantastic blow dryer! My hair is smooth and without tangles when I am finished drying it.
                    Unfortunately, the blow dryer fan did fall off. I purchased another brand and I just hate it. No comparison to this one. So I called the manufacturer and they said the blow dryer was out of warranty (of course), BUT I could send it back to them and for $15 get another one.
                    Seriously, if you have any problems with this product call Helen of Troy
                    1-800-487-8769 and they will take care of you!

                      I read a review that sounded just like my experience. I bought this hairdryer and approximately 6 months later, the dryer made a popping noise and the low fan speed quit working. The store warranty was out, but I really liked the hair dryer, so foolishly I bought another one. I've had this one approximately 9 months and the low fan speed burned out again. I won't buy another one.

                        After almost a year of owning this hair dryer, I still love it. 1. It was still at the lower end of my price range, 2. It was ATTRACTIVE and LIGHT-WEIGHT, but that's not everything, 3. The CONTROL OPTIONS WERE ABUNDANT, 4. I turned it on to test the sound, which is pretty MELLOW considering it could be as loud as a vacuum, 5. It DOESN'T SMELL like it's burning (sounds weird, but hair dryers can smell, which may just be a pet peeve, but it should be something people test when shopping for this item), and 6. It does a great job maintaining heat, QUICKLY CHANGES HEAT when controls are changed. Definitely a good buy, but just a WARNING: the coating is like a soft kind of velvet-suede (like EOS lip balms) so any dings or scratches will show, so treat it like fine china.

                          I never thought one dryer was any different from another... but my frizzy/curly hair looks smooth when I use this dryer. AND my hair drys 'fast'! I love it.

                          This hair dryer is wonderful! I had been using my daughters high priced hair dryer and it was heavy and my hair was always frizzy. My new HOT hair dryer is lightweight and it doesn't take anytime for my hair to dry!

                            I first bought one of these in September 2013 and loved it - lightweight and had the perfect combination of the lower speed but higher heat that I need to style my short, fine hair. By February 2014 the low setting switch literally burned out after a scary popping noise. Brought it back to the Ulta store I bought it from and they very generously exchanged it for a new one. It is barely three months later and the new one did the same burn out!! I will never buy a Hot Tools product again.

                                A:

                                The real difference is that the Diamond Harlequin Dryer has two additional features. One to dial up or down the amount of ions that are generated by the dryer (more is better for long, thick hair, less is better for short, fine hair). Also, the Diamond Harlequin Dryer has a turbo boost feature that adds additional air velocity when pushed. Other than those two points of difference, they are both Ionic Salon Professional dryers.
