Most Helpful Positive Review Quality
It's great. So much better than my Chi dryer. Waste of money on my Chi. This dryer dries my hair so much faster. Sound and performance is salon quality. First use my husband said it must be a good dryer. That was just based on the sound of the dryer. My naturally wavy/curly hair is so smooth, soft and straight when using Carrera2. Did not even need to use a curling iron after blow out. Incredible. Only applied mouse and leave in conditioner to ends. Hair looks so healthy. I only use the medium setting. High setting is really hot.
Con is that it smooths and straightens my hair so much I don't get as much body to top. I do have wavy hair but medium fine. I've tried Drybar and this dryer performs even better than Drybar in my opinion.
Most Helpful Critical Review I liked it at first..
I have had this hair dryer for less than a year and I was really impressed with it for the first couple months. However, seemingly for no reason, the extremely narrow slide-on concentrator started flying off when I would first turn the hair dryer on and start drying my hair. I could get it to go back on and stay on while I finished drying my hair the first few times this occurred, but then it started coming off every single time. I have now stopped even trying to use the extremely narrow slide-on concentrator, but without it, my hair is basically just frizz.

I highly recommend the Babyliss Pro Carrera2 hair dryer! I have used it for about 5-6 days a week for over 2yrs now. It's Porcelain Ceramic which evenly distributes the heat to lessen hot spots, "Far-Infrared" heat which is supposed to help protect our hairs natural luster and its Ionic to cut frizz-causing static. Its a slight step up price-wise but it's The Best dryer without spending multiple hundreds on the one we all dream about owning one day!

I've owned this dryer for about 6 months and I would say I'm happy with it but not over the moon estatic about it. I can't say it's the best hair dryer I've ever used but it's up there. Probably the best hair dryer I've ever owned. I did my best to compare ratings and price and I think for the price your getting a great product. I like the feel of it in my hand and it dries my hair fairly quick. I have thin hair and I don't feel like it's damaging at all. Not sure if it could dry thick hair very fast if that's what your wanting though.

Great hairdryer! Love the results. Definite improvement over old dryer.
BEST HAIRDRYER EVER
The green-eyed girl next door from Leawood, KS
Seriously, take it from a skeptic on looking for the best products in an industry that so many people say "oh this is the besssst product ever!!" and it definitely is not--that this product is! I am a changed woman! I have super thick and wavy in the back hair that takes at least a whole day to air dry! I would highly recommend this product to anyone, and I mean anyone who needs a powerful, great using, and beautifully designed hair dryer!!!
Too hot for fine hair
EnnGee from Orlando, FL
Bought this blow dryer bc of the good reviews, and I thought ceramic would be good for my hair. It gets the job done pretty fast, which is great. But I've found that for my fine, color-treated hair, it gets too hot even on warm, and causes visible damage. It nearly gave me a heart attack one time because it started smoking while I was using it, but I realized it was burning the attachment and nothing was wrong mechanically. If you need that extra heat, then this is a great dryer. But if you have damaged hair to begin with, you may want to look elsewhere.
Love this dryer
Lilly from New York
I love how it leaves my hair after I use it. It dries my hair fast and my hair look so healthy.
My new favorite!
Sarahno86 from New England
This is my new favorite hairdryer! It is on the expensive side, but totally worth every penny so far. My last was a cheap Conair model from Wmart, which broke within weeks of purchase & took me over 30min to dry my 32" hair. The BabylissPRO Carrera2 does the job much better, while doing less damage to my hair & while only taking about 10-15min to completely dry all my hair! It leaves my hair silky smooth & all the frizz/flyaways I usually deal with are not an issue anymore. I will buy this again.
Bad for your hair
Rg from Dallas
My hair has gotten drier and thinner and just unhealthy looking and feeling after using this for a couple of months. I bought it after being impressed with how hot it got at my hair salon's dry bar, but, over time, this seems to be a detriment. Lately, I've started using it on warm, but still feels super straw-like after drying. Also, the dryer nozzle will fly off anymore like the heat melted the fit and it just won't stay on now. I went back to my Solano dryer and already it looks healthier after 2 days.
I recommended this hair dryer!
B from Rochester NH
I personally like how the dryer runs. It's not super loud or heavy. I like how long the cord is. I also feel like this helps with frizz compared to my old hair dryer. I would highly recommended.
Bought a year ago and it just stopped working
Kate from Seattle
I'm not sure what happen but after a year of having this I went to use it and it just wouldn't turn on. I really liked this dryer I'm bummed. I will get something else maybe not ceramic.
I would not buy this product again
EAM from Williamsburg, VA
I have had this blowdryer for a couple of months now. This was a great product at first. However, the attachment no longer stays on the blowdry and is essentially a projectile. It is worse when you are using "high," but still comes off on the "low" setting as well. Don't waste your money!
Happy so far
Amanda from Fayetteville, Arkansas
I have been using this blow dryer for a week and so far I am pleased. I was looking for a dryer that would dry my hair quicker and not cause damage. I also wanted a dryer that felt comfortable in my hand and was easy to use. I feel like so far this dryer meets all those needs. I have fine, thin, oily hair and I use this dryer on the cool high setting and it dries my hair in half the time with smooth and healthy looking results than my last dyer (it was a conair). Although the price was much higher than I wanted to spend, I went for it because I had reward points and a gift card, so far I feel it was worth the price paid.

Perfect temperature, gets the job done pretty quick.
Died 4 days after warranty expired
Little Miss No Name from Los Angeles
I liked the way it worked. I have short hair which only takes a few minutes to dry. I picked it because it has 3 speeds which is nice for when I wash the dog.
It stopped working 3 days after warranty expired. Started spitting out small hot things & then smoking. To be fair I have dropped it a few times but I expected longer life.
I love love LOVE MY new BaBylissPro blow dryer!!
Mix from Brentwood, Ca.
No more frizzy hair. My hair is super smooth & soft. My hair even seems style better, like it knows it has a great product being used on it. 😉
Gets way too hot!
C from Utah
I have had babyliss blow dryers before, and have loved them! i have super thick hair and have always used them on the hottest and highest settings. this one got so hot it melted the plastic on the concentrator and the bristles on my brush. so disappointed!
Worst blow dryer I've ever used.
Bonni from Dayton Ohio
I reallllly truly wanted to love this blow dryer. I have loved all of my other Babyliss products. However, this dryer was one of the worst I have ever used. It leaves my hair feeling coarse and dry. It looks like straw afterwords. (It straightens horribly with my Babyliss straightener after I have dried it with this dryer) While drying my hair it makes it so tangly even with a good product and brushing it while doing it. I have never had this issue with the dozens of dryers I have used in the past. My hair is usually very soft and shiny after it's dried that is not the case with this dryer. The speed settings are also very terrible. The low is too low and the high is way way too high. It also makes my hair stink after I use it. Again, have never had that issue with any other blow dryer.
It is also very top heavy. So if you have a lot of hair and it takes you a while your arm will get tired of holding it above your head. I would NOT recommend buying this unless you somehow are able to test it out before you purchase. I will be donating it. Do not waste your money.

This is the best hair dryer I have ever purchased. It's lightweight & fast.
BEST HAIRDRYER EVER!!!
Katie from Virginia
i have super frizzy & naturally curly hair and this hairdryer leaves my hair with NO frizz!! my previous hairdryer was terrible for frizz control.... hands down the best dryer out there for controlling frizzy hair!!
Best blow dryer ever
Bee from New York, NY
This is hands down the best blow dryer I've ever owned. I had been using a conair which was OK but it took a while to fully dry my hair. I took the plunge and bought the babyliss and its definitely worth the price! I have long, fine, wavy hair and it was dry in about 5 minutes. Silky smooth and straight results. If you're considering buying this product, do it!!
Best blow dryer I've ever had
Nat from Brick, NJ
I have naturally wavy and frizzy/poofy hair. I hate letting my hair air dry but my old blow dryer that was conair made my hair even more poofy and frizzy and made it feel so dry. This blow dryer is absolutely life changing. My hair blow dried completely straight, frizz free and so so soft. I bought it with the Luxor citrus ceramic round brush. Highly recommend!
Solidly built but still easy to handle
Jewelz from San Francisco, CA
This Carrera2 though heavier than all other hair-dryers I've used, it's a breeze to use. I was a little wary that the rubberised body will be sticky and mucky, but it is smooth, soft and pleasurable to handle. The buttons are well positioned too. Highly recommend.
I love it!
Keely from Bothell, WA
I bought this dryer after reading an online article about the best dryers on the market, this was their winner for fine hair. I have fine wavy/curly hair and it works incredibly quick at drying compared to my old dryer. I love the long cord and how light it is. I would buy it again.
my first hair dryer
Betsy from chicago, IL
This is my very first hair dryer and I didn't want to get something cheap. I had hair that was half down my back and I could round brush my whole head in 15 minutes. It works great! and dries your hair fast! it's a good weight. and I like how the nozzle is short because I had gotten a huge diffuser and it works great. I also love the way it looks, with the soft touch. very nice! I'd highly recommend spending the little extra and getting this!
Quit on the first use.
ShyanneV from Kansas
Babyliss should be ashamed of themselves. This piece of junk just quit working 5 minutes into blow drying my first client. No indicator of anything wrong whatsoever. Tried on several different outlets to no avail. Huge fail in my book.
