      Comments about BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Portofino Dryer:

      I purchased one last year for our winter home and then again for our summer home and somewhat more than what I wanted to pay but well worth every penny. I love it. I have thick hair that takes a long time to dry and I find it takes me half the time to dry my hair with this dryer. I use it until I think my hair is dry and then wait a few minutes and go back for the finishing touches for the final drying. My other hairdryers it took me several times before my hair would dry. I was blessed with a very thick hair of hair and still have it at 68 years old. Love this dryer and the time it takes me to use it.

            I have extremely thick hair and this hair dryer is awesome!! My drying time is now down to about 5-10 minutes and it use to be closer to 25-30!! So much better then any Chi dryer I've owned. I love all Babyliss hair tools. I also have their flat iron and curling iron and love them all.

                  Did not dry my hair fast at all. Actually I was disappointed with its performance for the price. I have purchased expensive dryers in the past and have been very impressed but this one was a let down. Very heavy to hold as well.

                          I have medium length, naturally curly hair that I blow out on a weekly basis. My hair is dry and can easily go a week without washing, sometimes longer. I had been using my old standby Conair dryer for years and it never gave me problems, but I had the suspicion I could really cut down my 1 hour drying time if I invested in a quality dryer. I bought this one on a whim after seeing it in an email ad, and I am so glad I did. It is incredible. I cut my blow out time IN HALF and my hair is smoother and sleeker than ever. I would not recommend this for those who don't need a really powerful dryer-- unless of course you want to spend $100+ just for the heck of it. But if you do a full blow out on a regular basis, have a longer drying time, or any other reason that a typical drugstore blow dryer won't cut it, give this a shot. I fully expect to use this for years and have many weeks of great hair because of it. It was worth every penny.

                              A:

                              The cord on the BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Portofino dryer is designed for the professional, and features a heavy duty construction with a reinforced rubber housing as the cord exits the dryer housing. If it is the nature of a particular user to continually twist the dryer in the same rotation, it would not be a bad idea to "unwind" the cord by reverse-rotating the dryer a couple of times at the conclusion of the service – the cord does not have a swivel feature that would be found on a hair straightener – but the cord twisting should not be a problem with this professional use dryer.

                              The Nano Titanium Dryer is an extremely lightweight dryer that uses a high-torque motor to generate professional performance. The Portofino Dryer, handcrafted in Italy, provides improved air performance and drying power with an Italian AC motor. It also lasts significantly longer and has a more durable power cord.
