Comments about Hot Tools The Gold Touch Turbo Ionic Dryer:

Use twice a week to blow dry hair. Everyday to style hair. Handle is bulky. Not easy to hold and style. As I hold it, I am always accidentally turning off the dryer. Contemplating on returning it. Bought it with the recommendation of Stylist at store. She said our stylist uses it. I think I will go back to store and buy my 1st choice dryer, so I can try it out. It's another brand and had good ratings. I'll return one and keep the one I like best.

      Comments about Hot Tools The Gold Touch Turbo Ionic Dryer:

      I've used this dryer maybe a handful of times since my Mom gave to me as a gift. Most of the time my husband uses it to set his hair product (all of a minute of use at a time ). Today I plugged it in and it started running on its own. At first I thought I the button had rocked on, but no! The button is in the off position and it's just sitting there running. Needless to say this is not a very quality product being less than a year old and used very minimally. I would love a replacement but who keeps the box !?

          This Hot Tools hair dryer dries my hair in 10 minutes or less. My hair is thick, long, and colored. My hair is a sleek look to it. I have already gotten alot of compliments and I only changed my hair dryer. It worth the money because this hair dryer last longer. The cheap hair dryers would only last me maybe yeat.

                When using this on high, the speed button seems to get warm to the touch. Kind of bothersome when drying my hair. Anyone else experience this?

                What's the difference between this model and the Silver Lining Turbo Ionic AC Motor Dryer?

                  A:

                  Air flow is not as powerful as AC motor, but still does a great job in drying the hair quickly.
