    Comments about BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Portofino Dryer:

    My Hot Tools Hairdryer was junk - needed something that wouldn't take 20 min. to dry my thick hair. I had no idea how to pick out a new dryer, but the staff at Ulta steered me in the direction of a titanium dryer because I do travel frequently. (Apparently ceramic dryers break easier.) I love it. My hair dries quicker than ever before and its shiny and healthy. I really like where the switches are on the handle. All of my past hair dryers had switches on the inside of the handle - where I was always changing the setting and strength of the airflow by accident.

          I've used this dryer for a few years. While it's fine, and does it's job fairly well, I feel it's a little over priced. It's not super heavy, but not very balanced. I feel the Rapido or Italo luminoso are better choices. Rapido is quieter and much lighter, while luminoso is much more affordable.

            I've been needing a hair dryer for a while and I've been researching for every hair dryer out there that is good for my thick wavy hair. I finally decided to chose this hair dryer and i definitely made the right choice. The hair dries very quickly while leaving it smooth and shiny. It was a little pricey but worth it.

            Comments about BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Portofino Dryer:

            I purchased this hairdryer when my CHI hairdryer stopped blowing hot air. I was looking for something to dry my long hair more quickly but on "high" the air was too forceful and my hair would tangle. The "low" setting wasn't quite strong enough and took forever to dry. I also didn't care for the switches being on the side of the handle as they dug into the palm of my hand. I can see though that this design might work better for a professional stylist who holds the hairdryer straight on. It was also much louder than my CHI which has a quieter motor. While this hairdryer did minimize frizz, there were more cons than pros for me to make this purchase worth it so I returned it.

              This was my first expensive hair dryer & it really makes a difference in my hair. Faster drying time and less frizz. I used to dread washing my hair because of the long drying time but not anymore.

                        Yes this dryer is perfect for any and all hair types. Adding volume is also in the technique while drying...
                        Take a pie shaped section on the heavy side closest to the part. Place a round brush underneath the section and gently roll as you dry the hair with the concentrator nozzle directed toward the ends. Over-direct and re-gather the hair as your dry to build volume. Once the hair is dry, roll it as if it were on a roller and clip to set.

                        The BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Portofino dryer was updated a short time ago, and with that update, the contents of the package were changed. Ulta turns their merchandise extremely quickly, and as a result has the most current versions available, and the product listing on the Ulta site is correct. The difference was a Diffuser used to be included. Diffusers for the Portofino dryer are still available, but listed separately on the site. The Diffuser that will work with the Portofino dryer is the BaBylissPRO Online Only Italy Dryer Diffuser.

                        A:

                        Yes, both Nano Titanium and Tourmaline Titanium dry hair in the same amount of time but just utilize different technologies. Both Nano Titanium and Tourmaline Titanium have ionic technology.

                        Here are the main differences between Nano Titanium and Tourmaline Titanium

                        Tourmaline Titanium Technology:
                        Tourmaline is a semi-precious mineral which generates only negative ions when heated. The TT has internal parts that are molded with tourmaline. The tourmaline technology maximizes the negative ion output and closes the cuticle layer, creating smooth hair. A Tourmaline blow dryer has been found to blow dry up to 40 percent more quickly than a non-tourmaline.

                        Nano Titanium Technology:
                        Ions refer to any particle with a negative or positive charge. Negative ions interact with wet hair by breaking up the water molecules, allowing the smaller droplets to penetrate the outer layer of the hair shaft. Ionic technology takes a natural occurring phenomenon when hair is wet and breaks up the water molecules, allowing the smaller droplets to penetrate the outer layer of the hair shaft.
