This is an excellent hair dryer. I could not believe the difference between my old one and a "professional" hair dryer. I have purchased CHI products before and knew they were good products but did not realize what a difference it would make in drying and styling my hair.
This is a quiet and powerful dryer. The wattage is not all that high compared to the 2000 watt dryers out there, but the ceramic ionic heating element more than makes up for it. My friend bought the same dryer on Overstock for **** cheaper (for some reason, there were two listings) and it broke after 11 months. Overstock still took it back under the one year warranty. Mine is still going strong 18 months later so I dont regret paying more. Highly recommended for those who want a quality dryer.
Although this hair dryer works well, it only works for about a year. After a year, the heat completely stops working. I read reviews about this prior to purchasing, and purchased the warranty so I got my money back, but it is still a pain to send the hair dryer back and wait for a new one. Plus I am out the money for the warranty. Bottom line, its not worth it to buy this product.
Not as light weight as advertised. Extremely long and bulky in shape which makes for awkward handling. This blow dryer does pack a mean punch but sacrifices the health of your hair in doing so. After less than a month of usage I now have dry, brittle hair with excessive split ends which I never did before with my previous blow dryer.
This hair dryer works great. It came with the ionizer attachment and another large attachment (I think it's for curly hair). It doesn't necessarily dry my hair any faster than my old cheapo but it's much more quiet and and not as hot creating a more pleasant experience.
Wow! What a dryer. I wish I had tried this one sooner. I bought it because of the low wattage. I was very surprised at how fast it dries my hair. On the low setting it takes 5 minutes from start to finish. I like the low speed because it isn't blowing the hair Ihave already styled all over your head and messing up what I have already done. It is very quiet. Personally, I think this is a wonderful dryer and it is going to become my favorite hair dryer. My hair is short, curly and of medium thickness.
I purchased this hair dryer because my hair dresser uses it and also a co-worker recently purchased it and raved about it performance. I have very curly/wavy hair and it holds mositure and takes a long time to dry. It takes half the time to dry my hair and the frizzy that I would get with other blow dryers is gone. I have found I have to use less product to help control the natural wavy and friz in my hair. The only thing I don't like about the hair dryer is where the on/off switch is located. I have tendency to turn it off because of how I hold the hair dryer when drying my hair. Other than that it is an awesome blow dryer.
I have been a hair stylist for almost 2 years and I have used a lot of different hair dryers whether at home or in the salon or hair school. I was hesitant to pay so much more than I've normally paid for a hair dyer, but the investment is worth it. I love this dryer. It is quiet and it absolutely cut drying time compared to other dryers! I also love the attachments. I would recomment this hair dryer to anyone, professional or not. You get what you pay for and if you are spending the money on chemical services for your hair, spend the money on the best products to ensure long lasting color and healthy hair!
