      This blow dryer has such high speed that it makes my hair knotty when blow drying. There are only two speeds and the slower speed is too slow.

        I bought this because it was one of the only dryers that fit my Xtava Orchid diffuser. I LOVE this dryer!! It's so quiet and fast. The controls are extremely easy to work, and the temperature control responds quickly. I would happily buy this again.

          Comments about Hot Tools Ionic Turbo Salon Dryer:

          I really like this dryer. It is a step up from my old Revlon dryer, but I really miss having the diffuser on it. I have kind of thick hair that never seems to do what I want it to. It is not straight or curly. Some sections ringlet curl and some refuse to do anything, so I use a blow dryer often to style it before using other tools. While I do not like Hot Tools flat irons, I love their dryers and curlers. This is a fast and lightweight dryer that I am glad I purchased.

              Lightweight but takes forever to dry thick long hair. Was such a shame because it was so light and it didn't heat up after five minutes. Returned item unfortunately.

              Used once and the dryer heated up in less then minutes. What more, after a month, and after constant use. I'm afraid it might explode on me! It's not worth it. Even with the free curling iron. Best to invest a little more on an expensive dryer. Returned the next day.

              Comments about Hot Tools Ionic Turbo Salon Dryer:

              I have been wanting to get a new blow dryer for a while. I did some research, and when my old one broke I bought this. I have never paid attention to what kind of blowdryer to use. I usually buy the cheap ones, and with my thick hair that doesn't help. I have used it twice so far and my hair seems less frizzy and softer, maybe healthier? The only drawback is the diffuser. It falls off pretty often. I guess I don't have it in securely? Anyways, its not as expensive as the other like chi or bioinic, but I think it does the trick for me.

                    The Ionic Turbo Salon Dryer accepts most universal diffuser attachments, so you can certainly use it to diffuse curls! Its ionic technology helps to reduce frizz, so curls are better defined. Enjoy!

                • Q:

                  Aside from the price point, what are the main differences between this dryer and the Hot Tools Tourmaline Turbo Ionic Dryer? Weights/wattages/warranty/real benefits?
                  A little background for my usage needs: I have arthritis in my hands and need something lightweight/small. I have shoulder length fine thin hair. I like to blow out my hair often at home for maximum volume and sometimes then curl it.

                    A:

                    Both of these dryers have a one year manufacturer's warranty. Both of them are ionic, however the Tourmaline Turbo Ionic dryer produces more negative ions to help dry hair quickly. That's because it does it by actively producing ions with an internal ion generator as well as passively when the tourmaline inside the dryer is heated by turning it on. If your hair is thin, then either of these dryers would work just as well. The weight of the Ionic Turbo Salon Dryer will easier for you to work with if you have arthritis.
