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.
I'm conflicted. I like it, but it didn't last as long as I feel it should have. I had a Salono dryer before this which lasted for six years.
Every year, I wonder if it's going to be the year it stops working as well or craps out on me. It's as good as it was the day I got it and still going strong. By now, I've lost the attachments and the wire on the back does come loose (I truly don't take care of it and throw it in a bin under my sink). It's the best hair dryer. It's so fast and doesn't dry out your hair. Obsessed.
LOVE this blow dryer! My hot tools blow dryer broke, so I spent hours reading reviews on different hair dryers. I have long, thick, wavy hair and this dryer works amazing and quick! It leaves my hair very soft and less frizzy
I originally bought a T3 AirLuxe and it wasn't doing it for me. I have fine, straight hair that is a blonde-highlighted, short bob. I bought this dryer and immediately it was great. The nozzle attachment is thinner and directs more air. The dryer does not fry my hair and adds volume. It's incredible with some leave in volume products. I travel with this full sized dryer - it's that great.
Some of the other reviews had me skeptical but after trying this dryer myself, I absolutely love it. It dries more quickly than other dryers I've tried. It doesn't fry my hair. It's great quality! There ia also a cool setting and not just a cool shot button.
