Rated 4.43 out of 5 stars
I didn't want to believe that a hair dryer could make a difference in how my hair actually dried. Heated blown air is all the same, right? Well, that was my long-held theory for many years...until I purchased this dryer. I tried to give myself the same blow-out as my skilled stylist: I used the exact same products and even the same round brush! Alas, my long, thick coarse hair ALWAYS frizzed, no matter what. It dawned on me that the only difference was the hair dryer. I began an in-depth investigation of hair dryers and quickly learned that most of the top-rated dryers exceeded my monthly car loan payment. Uh, no, I don't think so. But was I willing to spend just a little more than normal on the chance that I could eliminate dryer frizz? Absolutely! Based on positive reviews, the reasonable price, and a coupon, I took a chance on the BaByliss Nano Titanium dryer. Much to my surprise, it actually made a difference! My hair dries much faster with less frizz at the highest settings (not completely frizz-free, mind you, but any reduction is greatly appreciated). The dryer weighs substantially less than my old Revlon, and I am able to completely dry my hair without working up a sweat (a boon to any gal approaching or experiencing menopause!). It has a variety of settings, so I think it's possible to decrease the frizz even more by using the low heat/low speed setting if one has the time. Overall, I'm impressed with what this dryer has done for my hair so far and would recommend it to anyone looking to reduce the frizzies without draining their bank account.
I bought this after my hairdresser recommended it and I really wanted to love it. But I just didn't. The pluses are it's pretty light weight and it dries my hair fast. The problem is my hair looks awful after it's dried. The heat is so low and the air is so forceful that my hair is blown all over the place, and it blows right off the round brush. And the buttons are placed right where you hold the handle. They are flip on and off (not slide up and down). So every time I move my hand (which is a lot because I'm trying to control the ridiculous wind tunnel this thing creates), I accidentally change the airflow, heat setting or shut the thing off altogether. For the price, I was expecting to be wowed. I've had $15 blow dryers that were designed better than this.

I actually returns this item for a refund. Very disappointed. Expected this to be hauled fast drying. The hole is so small takes so long to dry hair and is loud.
Evelyn from Pittsburgh PA
Love the ionic feature as it helps dry your hair faster. My only complaint is the narrow air vent is only 1.25" wide vs my last hair dryer was 2" wide. My choice. The buttons are on the handle and at times you can easily bump them.

Dries hair quickly. Quiet motor. Lightweight

This is the second Nano Titanium Dryer I have bought - I used my first one until it wore out after seven years! It is pretty lightweight, puts out a strong stream of air, and the cool shot feature is super helpful to keep my hair from getting damaged. Highly recommend this product!

I loved this hair dryer at first because of how well it tamed frizz, but the diffuser attachment does not stay attached. At first, it only disconnected from the hair dryer a few times while drying, but after only a couple months it happens more and more. I cannot dry my hair for more than 5 minutes without it falling off. Even re-enforcing it every few minutes does not help. Disappointed as this dryer is not cheap. Does help with frizz, but if you are planning to use it for diffusing I recommend another product.
Tee from Tx
I've had this dryer for about 3 years and i thank myself every time i use it. Its powerful and gets super hot on medium heat. I have 4b coily hair, and with a round brush, i can get my hair pretty straight before using a flat iron. Its lightweight with a super long cord. A little loud to use when others are sleeping, but its fine lol
Overall, i highly recommend this dryer. My blowout routine is a breeze with this thing. Great price for the quality!

I've owned this Baby Bliss hairdryer for 5+ years & have hated using it for a myriad of reasons. The buttons are poorly placed and you end up flicking them on/off while trying to handle the dryer. In addition, the hot button is too hot and the medium is not hot enough so it doesn't efficiently dry my hair. The nozzle falls off constantly and I have taken to jamming the darn thing on while muttering unmentionable things. Finally, although the cord is long, it's extremely stiff which results in it becoming twisted and it takes 2-3 minutes every morning to straighten it out.

My first blow dryer like this lasted me over 6 years.
Ashley from New York, NY
I loved this dryer at first because it made my hair look super smooth and look like I had straightened it. But after a while my scalp was getting so greasy and it would not go away. I tried everything from using less products, different products, etc and nothing work. As soon as I stopped using this dryer and went back to my revlon, my hair wasn't greasy anymore. I couldn't believe a hair dryer could actually make your hair greasy. Going to exchange for a different Babyliss hair dryer and hope for the best.

Im not one to leave reciews. I researched hair dryers for a long time. Im not going to shuck out the $$$ for Dyson or Shark etc because I think it's absolutely ridiculous.
I spent $80 for Hot tools dryer and it left my hair so dull and was over 2 lbs and the handle area would heat up even on lower heat.
Babybliss pro is very powerful and cut my drying time to 75% less. It also did not dull my hair or make it feel dry and lanky. I wish the attachments were smaller slits for more refined blow out. It is 1.88 lb which may seem not that light but for the power and speed of drying- its a win for sure. Get this asap.
I also used a coupon and received $10 off which was nice because Ulta loves sending coupons they know good and well nobody really wants because we cant use them on anything. Coupon should just say instead "can only use on affordable $10 makeup which means you really wont save much."

I was really surprised by how quickly this dried my hair. I have short hair so it's not like it takes a long time anyway, but this dryer was incredibly fast. I also love that it didn't feel like it was burning my hair or scalp even on the hi setting. But with their technology it dried faster than any other dryer I've ever used before. Another bonus is that it is very lightweight. I'm in my 50's and my arms get tired holding a heavy dryer while fixing my hair. This was much more lightweight than my previous dryer. And I like how long the cord is too. All in all this is the best blow dryer I have ever had.

Ive had this blow dryer for 1 year and love the way it make my frizzy hair tame and shiny. Now however, I cant get the button to work on high. Disappointed!!
Laura from Southern California
I got one of these hairdryers in December and less than three months later, in the beginning of March, it was completely unusable. This was the 3rd one of these hairdryers I've bought in the past 10 years and something must have changed with the current model because the other ones lasted much longer. The power shut off on the plug malfunctioned, so it turned oft the dryer immediately every time I tried to turn it on. I submitted a warranty claim and 2 weeks later, they told me I would be getting a new dryer in 10-14 days. It's now been over 6 weeks and I still don't have the replacement. Every time I email them to ask for it, they say there's "delays" in shipping out replacements. I assume they have no such delays in shipping new orders though. Very, very disappointed in this company and this product.
Maria from Waterbury, CT
This is not an inexpensive hair dryer and for that reason I only gave it one star because the more you use it, the more frequently the nozzle falls off. In the beginning it didn't seem to do that, so I don't know if it expands after daily use, or what the cause is, but it is so frustrating because now it falls off EVERYTIME I use it. Would not purchase again for that reason.
Colleen from Fort Worth Texas
Much lighter weight than my old hairdryer. Cut my drying time in half.
Heather from Arkansas
I bought another when my original dryer went out. After years of use, I had no complaints and choose to replace with the same dryer. I love it.
Heather from Connecticut
I wanted a hairdryer that would cause less damge to my hair, but still get the job done. This one was recommended by my hairdresser. It took a little getting used to because it has more wind, but less heat than my last dryer. Great purchase!
Noel from Lancaster, PA
My former hair dryer quit unexpecteldy. I decided to upgrade, and get a better quality one. While this dryer has a nice long cord and dried my hair (fine and stright) quickly, nothing I do prevents my hair from getting into a tangles mess.
Ash from NC
I absolutely love this dryer. I had no idea that all hair dryers are not alike until I bought this. In my opinion, it is worth the price. Blow drying time is less with this dryer and frizz is more controlled. I feel that my hair looks healthier since I started using this dryer.
Jess from Manhattan, Illinois
My hairdresser uses the Dyson dryer, I thought that was the one I was going to get when looking for a new dryer. But, after reading reviews I decided to go with this one. Dries my hair just as fast and frizz free and smooth as the Dyson. And Cheaper!
Crystal from Alexandria, LA
Lightweight and fast drying time even on medium heat setting.
Teresa from Murrieta
For the price- it performs great! My daughter's and my hair looks amazing- love the medium and cool heat settings
Tianna from Dearborn Michigan
All hairstylists were using this at the salon I got to so I bought one I think almost 3 years ago. This is the best hair dryer if u want straight hair with no frizz. Best to use a roller brush and roll up while drying them back down while drying. It's fantastic
Susan from La Quinta, Ca
This dryer does everything it says it does. I have coarse curly hair and it is usually frizzy after blow drying with my previous blow dryer. I used the BabyBliss dryer today and my hair wasn't frizzy when I was done. The dryer is also light weight, easy to handle, and dried my hair quickly.
Sandra from snellville GA
Had same blow dryer for five years, bought it again. Doesn't work like it used to work. Doesn't stay hot for thick curly hair.
