              I actually bought this today. I went in the store and noticed on the display it said this is for medium to coarse hair (I'm 4b with 4c mixed in). It works great. I love all the settings on it. And the heat came out fine for me.

              Comments about Hot Tools The Gold Touch Turbo Ionic Dryer:

              I rarely treat myself to anything nicer or new anything. I always by cheaper blow dryers. I bought one of these this summer. Got it home and it blew out .mostly cold air. I thought it was a lemon and took it back and got another one just like it. same thing. hardly gets hot at all and just disappo8. doesn't match all the good reviews about hot tools at all. maybe I'm just bad luck.

                    • Q:

                      I loved this hair dryer until it stopped working properly. The highest setting will not work. It is like it's stuck on low. Since I haven't had it a full year is it possible to get it replaced?

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