Hair Dryer recs?

Recommended Posts

ok here is what my mom had to say:

 

You don't need the long cords or the same motors because ours stay cool after long use and they can be heavy because of the long nose shape. So some things I would recommend would be to look for a short barrel because your hands have to reach up over your head- hair dressers use long nose barrels but we stand up behind and over hair. Also high watts (about 1800 w) can be important for good pressure. It should be light cause arms get tired holding them up- under 2lbs if possible. And last, ionic produces less frizz. Ceramic is good too but may not always be worth the cost.

 

My recommendation for a good home dryer would be Sedu Revolution Tourmaline Ionic TGR 4000i Hair Dryer or an Elchim. Elchim is a little longer but still light. The Chi is popular but I think it is too long for home use and now even Conair Babyliss Tourmaline has a professional one that is good for home use.

Hey Lala, I posted a short review on the T3 Evolution this summer shortly after I purchased it. It is DEFINITELY worth it! At first I thought the cost of the dryer was crazy, but after reading good reviews I bit the bullet and bought it from Ulta using a 20% off coupon. The ceramic and tourmaline really makes a difference because my hair is shinier and much healthier than before. Now I don't dread blow drying as much haha. Anyway, hope this helps!

oh my word even $100 range sounds crazy to me BUT i sure can understand needing a good blowdryer. my hair takes FOREVER because its long and dense, lots of hair but each strand is fine and silky. it takes me about 15 minutes of drying in sections. i should probably save up and get a good one.

I have a CHI and I *really* like it. I am not sure I ever would've spent that much on a dryer otherwise- it was a gift- but it really is so much better than my old drugstore one (which is only maybe 1 year old, I believe it's a Conair Ionic. It's not terrible, just not great). The CHI leaves my hair way softer.

Thanks for the tips. Good idea to look for one with a short barrel - I never thought of that.

Lucky for my wallet I've been too lazy to get a replacement. I've just been praying my hair air dries in time for court every morning.
