Most Helpful Positive Review Love this blow dryer!
This is a great blow dryer for people who have curly/thick hair and would like a straight sleek look (at least that is my experience with it!). It does an incredible job of straightening my hair - however, if you have trouble with volume, you may not like this blow dryer because it really gets your hair straight. Also, the top button is a little close to your hand when you are drying your hair, but after a week's use, you get used to it and don't turn it off accidentally anymore. It is a very powerful blow dryer, but with that comes a little extra noise--it is a bit loud, so if you are looking for something quiet---you may want to think about that.
Most Helpful Critical Review Decent dryer, but had to return!
Had been a long time since I was in the market for a new dryer. I had heard Hot Tools was decent and I was satisfied with my purchase. Unfortunately, the switches for power and heat setting fall in line with the tips of my fingers when using the dryer. Not the best ergonomic design...kept it for a week, but had to return because I kept switching settings on accident.

This is really good blow dryer. I have extremely thick hair and this got my hair dry in 15 minutes love it.
Good Dryer at Reasonable Price
Jo from Dallas, TX
I use the product for drying and smoothing out the natural waves in my hair which is fine. This is the second time I have purchased this dryer. The first one lasted me 7 years but only until the Low air velocity would no longer work but everything else still works/worked. For the price, I think 7 years of almost daily service was worth it. However, in years past dryers have lasted me 12 years on average! For my needs it gets the job done nicely. It is a bit large and a tad heavy to manipulate with one hand but still manageable. Having the buttons on the handle is not a issue for me as other reviews have mentioned...in fact, it is very functional and easy to turn on and off.
I would recommend this product.

I use it almost every morning, I especially like that it doesn't get too hot.
quiet and light
Divinemsk from San Diego, CA
I like the product except it doesn't add as much softness and shine as other similar dryers I have used. I wonder if the more expensive driers to that?
Very lite however buttons get in the way on the handle
J3amie from Alexandria Louisiana
Very lite, easy to handle dries well
Buttons are ackward , large and don't allow room for your hand
I love it!
LLCOOLB from Tampa, FL
I love how light-weight it is, and that the unit itself doesn't get too hot after using. It dries my hair much quicker than than my former 2,100 watt dryer, and yet it still feels gentle. (My previous one could burn my scalp if I wasn't careful). I would definitely recommend this dryer!
quit after three months

Hard to maneuver when styling/drying back of hair with round brush
Just not hot enough.
777shop from Napa, ca
I purchased this dryer because I have always had amazing experiences with Hot Tools' products. I wish I could say the same for this dryer.
I have very thin hair, so it shouldn't take me too long to do a full blowout. However, it takes me a long time to dry my hair with this dryer, and my hair never feels fully dry after I'm done.
Returned it after only one use
kae from Denver, Colorado
Returned it after one use. The controls are placed on the side of the handle under where you grip it making it uncomfortable to hold. I kept hitting / squeezing the buttons causing the settings to be changed or the dryer to shut off etc.
I would buy this product again. I love it!

One of the most light weight hair dryers I have ever tried.
I absolutely love this hair dryer.
Shy from Coeur d Alene, Idaho
This is an awesome hair dryer. My hair dries in half the time it took my old hair dryer and I have less static.

Seriously, what are the cooking questions for for a review of a hairdryer?
Mam from Georgia
It is a good backup for a better dryer. I went cheap, because I have had awful luck with them.
Everything in a blow dryer I needed
DawnE from Green, Ohio
Like it because it is lighter in weight than some others I comoared too, price seemed comparable as well.
nat from Orange County, CA
Because of the price, I tried this dryer twice. Both stopped working in less than a year. The buttons positioning makes it difficult to use. A very loud dryer.
Thought I bought a quality product...
Randib923 from Mahomet, Il
The buttons we placed on the handle so I often accidentally shut it off. It also stopped working after a year.
awesome for thick hair
maria from pa
I bought this for my teenage daughter, her hair is very think and unmanagble, the comb on this helps her get her hair straight and silky,,,even her CHI brand hair dryer didnt help her. she loves this hair dryer.
Roch from Austin, Tx
The product was at a price point in which I would expect years of reliable use from this product. I have used many Helen of Troy/ Hot Tools curling irons and have had great luck! The dryer was a huge disappointment. After about a month the dryer was not heating up as much and only getting moderately warm. After 6 months it would not turn on at all! I do not use the dryer daily and it is used maybe twice a week for at home styling. I had a much less expensive Conair that lasted much, much longer. Overall disappointed.
PrincessDe from Tulsa, OK
It's a lightwight hairdryer and makes very little noise. However, seemed to take an extra amount of time to dry my hair.
Great power, awkward button location
KP from Gainesville, GA
I do not like where the heat/power settings are located on the handle. My fingers hit the buttons and the heat setting changes while I am using the dryer.
Great lightweight dryer, controls on side are annoying
glitteringrey from seattle, wa
don't love the controls on the handle. they're super easy to accidentally change heat or speed settings and hit the cool button. the heat/speed settings should not be where your hand goes! otherwise, love this dryer.
It works great
Eddie from Mesa Az
It has power and drys hair without to much static!
So light and quick
Alex from Thunder Bay, ON
I love how lightweight this blow dryer is. My only issues with it is the placement of the buttons, I seem to keep pushing the cool set button as I'm drying my hair. I also wish it came with a diffuser.
