BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Portofino 2000-watt Italian motor Dryer is enhanced with Nano Titanium technology to distribute heat evenly for optimal results.
I am happy I chose this dryer! I had a different brand but high end dryer from a major beauty supply shop that lasted me 7 years. I was overwhelmed when that one broke and I needed to find a replacement. There are so many on the market now! Since I know the difference in quality of hair appliances DOES make the hair healthier and save time, I decided to go a step higher in the hairdryer options this time. I initially bought a T3. Not a bad dryer but I didn't see the $200 difference. I read that brand's reviews to find it had durability and warranty issues so I returned it. On to the next option...
The 'salon' I go to is a high end beauty school. They not only sell Babyliss appliances but all the students are taught with their entry level model dryer. I saw this one on special with much better reviews so I gave it a try. I picked this one over their other model with a Ferrari motor, no joke! A new Ulta store has a tester section for hair appliances in their store and compared to even more expensive dryers, it seems the most powerful and easy to use of Ulta's dryer choices.
All I can say is I am pleased! Money well spent and my hair looks great in top drytime speed, even a couple days after initially styling. And I can forgo the 'secondary' appliance styling--that is the real test! I hope this one lives up to its durability because it is a great dryer worth every single penny.
One note is that the diffusers could fit a bit more snug. Not an issue to affect the quality but I am rough on my equipment and like to store mine in the drawer ready for use and it might come off or loosen more than I'd like.
I have very naturally curly hair and like to wear my hair curly. I own a Babyliss Pro Porcelain Ceramic dryer about 5 years old that I love. I wanted to try an upgrade, so I got this, along with the diffuser they recommend. The hair dryer itself is nice. It is VERY powerful, in fact, it was too much for my curls even with a diffuser and on a lower heat/blow setting. It left lots of small knots/tangles even on the lowest setting. I tried to use the dryer 4 times with different hair products and it still turned out the same- super puffy at the root and lots of frizzy/tangled curls. The diffuser prongs are also very short and the cup of the diffuser is small (and I have a lot of hair) so I went back to my old universal Conair diffuser on my Babyliss Pro. I took both of them back for a full refund. I love Babyliss products, but unless you are blowing your thick hair out straight I cannot recommend this for everyday, curly-girl styling.
What a difference a hairdryer makes. I explained to my stylist that I had awful frizz every day, no matter the weather. She recommended this dryer, as she has the same one. Not only, does it eliminate frizz, but it cut my drying time to a third of what it was. I'm so pleased with this dryer.
I just bought this and have used it for a week now. I feel as though it dries my hair out a bit, making it more coarse. It does dry the hair quickly though!
This thing is great!! Half the dry time, less frizz and lots of power. Highly recommend!!
I like my new hair dryer powerful motor helps to dry my hair very quick.
I was looking for a decent dryer that wouldn't break the bank and deliver salon-quality results with a good nozzle that stayed in place, and this one did not disappoint. I tried two other cheaper dryers to see if I could get away with spending a little less, but unsurprisingly, you get what you pay for when it comes to hair products. They left my hair feeling frizzy and coarse, and felt cheaply made, so I finally switched to this one after some research and seeing my hairstylist use BaByliss dryers in the past.
From the first time I used it, I noticed a big difference in how my hair felt- smooth, silky, soft, and shiny! I have fine, super long hair and a lot of it- so having a good dryer that works quickly while giving good results is important to me. This one has my hair dry in about 10 mins. The nozzle attachments work great and stay put. I like that there is a switch for hot, warm, and cool, so I don't have to hold down the cool button like on most dryers if I don't want to (there is still a cool button as well though!) I've had this for a couple of weeks now and so far, so good. Worth the extra money for the quality.
The only thing maybe some people will find, is that this dryer is. a little heavier and a bit louder than some others I have tried, although overall I don't find it that bothersome personally. Overall, this is a well-made hair dryer for the price and I am enjoying it so far!
