I usually don't write reviews but I feel like as someone that spent a LOT of money on this dryer, it's worth it to give advice to someone thinking of splurging on it... I LOVE this dryer. I've bought many dryers in the past, including cheaper, $50-70 dryers and they don't compare to this one. They are NOT all created equal. Right before I bought this one, I had bought an $80 one and took it back because it made my hair feel like junk. This dryer makes my hair FEEL healthier and LOOK healthier and I have pretty damaged hair from years of highlights and heating tools. It dries my hair fast too (I'm very picky on my wattage of hair dryers.) I love this thing and worth every penny spent. A tip for anyone thinking of it, wait until you have a 20% off coupon and then you can get a good chunk off, like I did!
I had a Hot Tools Black Ceramic Tourmaline quiet hair drier for only 3 moths before it decided to burn up (literally) I LOVED it!! I had perfect blow outs and my hair was always shiny with no product. My hair has never had knots, with any hair drier i have used... except this one. I usually get comments on how healty my hair looks, and this hairdrier took all the shine and volume out of my hair and replaced it with frizz, static and dullness. I do not recommend to anyone who has thicker wavy hair.

I bought this about a year ago. And I am still very satisfied. This hairdryer does everything that it claims to do. And feel that it was a great purchase.

I use a paddle brush and a round brush to blow my hair straight nearly everyday. So far this hairdryer is the bomb!!!!! Cuts time off my styling and leaves my hair feeling extra soft.

Bought this to replace my Instyler Blu dryer, which I thought needed replacing (turns out it was fine and the issue was totally on me) and regret getting it. It's extremely heavy for a hair dryer and takes double the time as my Blu to dry my hair, especially with the technology we have available today. The muscle fatigue in my wrist and forearm by the time I'm done drying my hair is ridiculous. It does eventually dry my hair, so it gets two stars.

I loved this hair dryer, and thought it was worth the money given my hair is hard to blow dry. Only 4 years later, and it shuts off every few seconds, making blowing out my wavy hair a chore again. It began about a year and a half ago, it would shut down at least once during a session. Now it never stops. It even does it on cool air! Considering the price, I would think it should last longer. Now I'm looking for a new one, grudgingly!

Nothing special. I bought a T3 Cura instead.

First, I am not one to write reviews, however I absolutely love this dryer. I just purchased my 3rd one. Have a 2nd home & wanted to stop bringing dryers back & forth. I thought I'd try something different & bought a high end Babyliss. Hated it!! I have difficult hair & It made my hair Super dry & very frizzy. I returned & ordered another Elchim (came with a bonus Elchim mini dryer as well). Just used my new Elchim & I'm loving it!!! Great product.

I was due for a new blowdryer with the goal in mind to reduce drying time for myself, and narrowed the big multitude of options on the market down to this one and the Dyson Supersonic—but ultimately determined it would be impossible to talk myself into spending $400 on a 1600 watt blowdryer made in Malaysia. This one boasts 30% reduce drying time and I found that it probably actually cut my drying time in half. The hottest heat setting on this dryer doesn't scorch my hair or otherwise make me concerned for the health of my hair unlike every other dryer I've owned, so I switch back and forth between the medium and high heat settings depending on what phase of drying I'm in with a particular section. I even felt it was easier to maneuver, more ergonomic, and produced a sleeker look than my old one, which was a $70 Babyliss Pro Ceramic from about five years ago. No more sweating like a pig over my vanity for an hour plus trying to work my obnoxiously dense head of hair into a presentable style. *So* happy I decided on this dryer.

Took this hair dryer out of the box and it had a rattle! I said, well, that sure doesn't sound right. I tried it, and it had a burning smell but I know some products have that at first, so I kept using it. It seemed to die down as soon as I lifted it up to my head. I thought, well maybe I'm blocking air to it somehow??? Well after about 2 mins. whenever I lifted it, it stopped completely. Not a happy camper. It also made my hair look like straw for the little bit it did dry. Of course it could be due to it being defective, but nonetheless, I wasn't impressed. Also I didn't like the instruction book at all. Hard to find the English parts in it. So back it went, and I sure didn't want another. I decided to go with one for a whole lot less money as I don't think now, that more money means better.

I use this dryer sometimes 2x daily to style my fine hair. It's my second one and I'm really happy I purchased the same dryer again. I can maintain frizz free volume. My hair, while fine, doesn't break off .
Michele from Littleton, Colorado
This won't burn or fry your hair, the hot/high setting isn't as hot as other hairdryers, but I like that about this one.

I used to have an Elchim hairdryer, and loved it until it burned out, although that's normal for most hair dryers these days (lasted 2 years). I've been using a GHD brand the last couple of years because I like trying new products, and it has worked well, but decided to try another Elchim again. I'm not sure what it is about this newer model, but the air pressure is so weak. When it's on the high speed, it sounds like the low speed of other dryers. I thought it was a defective one, and took it to the store to exchange for another of the same. Well, it's pretty much the same low airflow. It usually took 10 minutes to dry my fine textured long hair, but with this, it was taking 20+! Even on the highest heat setting, which I usually didn't have to use. I'm back to using the GHD I had, otherwise I felt like my shower/get ready time was getting ridiculous with this Elchim.

I've been using this dryer for one month and I'm extremely happy with it. It's very hot and dries my hair quickly. It's also surprisingly lightweight and quiet. I was happy to get a great price during Ulta's hair event but even at full price I think this dryer is worth every penny.
NG from Orlando
Before this dryer, I had a mid-level dryer that was frying my hair. I couldn't believe that a blow dryer could actually be worth this price. But for me, this one is. I have thin hair but lots of it with a coarse outer layer, so it's usually impossible for me to blow dry my hair smooth. Not anymore. This dryer is faster and more efficient than anything I've used before. My hair is smooth and soft even with minimal effort.

It is definitely quieter and dries hair noticeably faster than my old Revlon dryer -- both qualities I was looking for in a blow dryer; however, it is way heavier than expected, and it quite possibly makes me hair frizzier than the Revlon dryer I used before. However, part of this could just be my poor hair-drying technique. It gets VERY hot (I can only hold it near my scalp for approx. 0.5 seconds before it starts to hurt/burn like crazy) on the hottest setting but has multiple heat settings to choose from. Beautiful/elegant/sexy design. Comfortable handle. The black and gold finishes are both mirrored...gold rim looks a little cheap, but overall the dryer still looks really nice. I especially like the shiny metal/mesh grill on the back. Concentrators hard to attach, but once you get them on, they do not fall/fly off!! Overall, it feels like a very powerful, quality, professional dryer.
I highly recommend it, excellent for curly hair I got the diffuser too and both let my hair amazing.

I got this blow dryer during the 21 days of hair specials. I would have never spent this much on a blow dryer, but I had racked up a lot of points so I got it at a great price. A few of the reviews I read said that it had a weird smell when in use. I did notice a strange smell when I first turned it on but it went away quickly. At first I was a little disappointed that it didn't get hotter but I then realized how fast my hair was drying and it looked friz-free and styled. I'm sure if I used a blowout brush my hair would have looked even better. I'm very happy with this blow dryer. I hope it lasts a long time.

JJ from Warren, MI
I've only had the hair dryer for about a week, so I can't speak to longevity...however, it's a nice weight and ergonomically comfortable. Does a good job drying my hair
Thick hair girl from NC
My hair is thick and usually takes forever to dry. Once dry it frizzes and looks awful. This new dryer leaves my hair silky smooth and takes a fraction of the time to dry. Love this dryer!!
Gina from Gardendale, AL
I got this dryer because my hair dresser uses this brand. This isn't the same model but it works as good. I like that it doesn't blow my hair into tangles. I have lots of long hair and this is the first dryer to dry my hair in less than 10 minutes. Use to take 30 minutes and I would still have to use a straight iron. Not anymore. I just use alittle hair oil after it's dry. Worth the price!
J from Miami, FL
Works great does not leave hair frizzy and blowing time is quicker than my current blow dryer.
