Disappointing

Pros

  • Even Heat

Comments about Hot Tools Black Gold Ionic Dryer:

This hair dryer has a very sleek design and the colors compliment each other well. The only issue I had with this hair dryer is that it did not have the speed I was looking for. Other people left reviews about the buttons not being in a good spot but I will say I did not have an issue with this. Overall just disappointed with speed.

The lightweight design is very helpful when you have long thick hair. Dries quickly and leaves your hair nice and shiny... Frizz free too. The diffuser included works great for those curly hair days.

I bought this hair dryer less than a year ago and it has already stopped producing high heat. The dryer is a bit awkward as well. I would not recommend.

    Comments about Hot Tools Black Gold Ionic Dryer:

    Bought my daughter this blow dryer last Christmas. We went on vacation last month and I used it every day for a week. I loved how light-weight it is (will be taking it on trips now), and how smooth and healthy-looking my hair was. I was using a $150 Solaray blow dryer, but it never transformed my hair the way this one does. Highly recommended.

      Comments about Hot Tools Black Gold Ionic Dryer:

      This is my second Hot Tools dryer and I was skeptical at first because it wasn't a brand I was that familiar with. I have thick straight hair to my chest and it takes about 5 minutes to dry. It dries my hair fast without damaging it and it's a beautiful product. The ONLY complaint I can think of is that the cord is very long.

            I was sold by the color of the dryer. Hot tools has great products that I've purchased before, so there wasn't any hesitation. The dryer is very light weight and it didn't take long to dry my thick, curly hair!

              When using this dryer I would inadvertently change the setting during use because the buttons are in the palm of your hand area. Changing directions or hands i would flip the setting. Otherwise it worked fine it seemed but will be returning.

                      A:

                      Hello,
                      1. Remove the filter.
                      2. Remove any dust etc. adhered to the filter or air inlet. Remove the dust etc. adhered to the outside of the filter using a vacuum cleaner. If this does not remove the dust, use the thick part of your fingers to push the dust etc. through the fine mesh on the internal side towards the metal mesh on the external side, and scrub away carefully with a toothbrush.
                      3. Using the toothbrush, carefully scrub away any dust etc. from the internal side of the filter.
                      Using a vacuum cleaner or toothbrush, carefully remove any dust etc. adhered to the air inlet.
                      Rubbing forcefully with your nails may tear the filter, so please use a toothbrush.
                      4. Attach the filter securely.

                  • Q:

                    Do you have to use a brush while blow drying to reduce frizz? I seriously can't get both hands to cooperate and reproduce that fresh from the stylist look.

                      Try sectioning your hair and work with smaller areas that will help you have control. Also, hold the dryer with your nondominating hand that allows you to have control over your brush.

                      The hair does not fall through the diffuser. It blows gentle air to dry curly hair without disturbing the curl pattern. The hair stays soft and natural looking without frizz.

                      The nozzle diameter is 48.4mm / 1.9". This dryer comes with a diffuser. If the DevaFuser is a universal diffuser it should fit. You might want to take it in with you to Ulta when you make your purchase to see if it fits.
