Start each day looking like you just stepped out of the beauty salon when you style your hair with this hand-held Tourmaline hair dryer. Featuring three heat settings and a lightweight design, this hair dryer makes styling your hair easier than ever....more
The patented T3 Tourmaline infusion process delivers the highest concentration of ionic, infrared energy for a healthy, silky smooth finish. Imported Tourmaline gemstones are crushed into fine powder and infused into the elements of the dryer.
There was not a lot of research available on the T3 Protégé in a web search, but T3 products had good reviews and the price was right on this model.
The dryer is lightweight, very quiet, and the long cord is great. I don't know that it dried my hair any faster than the old ionic dryer I had; however, it made my hair as silky as it claimed it would. The buttons are well placed and the cool shot is the best I've had in any dryer.
Here is my one WARNING. Do some research on whether tourmaline is right for your type of hair. I have very fine hair and although this dryer made it feel ultra smooth and silky, it also made it extremely limp and lifeless. It was similar to not getting all the conditioner out of my hair. My hair just never felt clean and looked absolutely horrible within an hour of styling regardless of products. After trying a number of shampoos, conditioners, and styling products, I finally gave up and went back to a cheap dryer and my old hair returned.
I believe tourmaline dryers are fabulous, but not for those of us with fine hair. After research, this seems to be a pretty common complaint. I wish manufacturers would mention appropriateness for certain hair types in their information.
If you have thick or curly hair, this dryer may just be the one for you!
I have enjoyed this Tourmaline dryer , 2200-watt , ionic ceramic and 3 different speed and heat combination settings.
I have bought Tourmaline before and lasted 5 years. I really like this one, light weight and handle design. Drys hair quick and no static.

Worked great for 8 months, then out of the blue without warning, made a terrible rattle (as if something broke inside and lodged in the fan). Would not recommend. Paid about the same for my prior dryer and it lasted 3-4 years with use almost daily.
I bought this dryer a while ago and it lived in it's box under my bed. Fast forward a year or so later and I have a new shorter hair style which requires a blow out every morning. I pulled out the dryer and was very pleased with the results for the first week. And then one day, the dryer wouldn't even turn on. Because I didn't fill out the warranty card, the manufacturer won't do anything. I will never purchase another Protege dryer again.
I LOVE THIS THING . IT IS POWERFUL; AND DRYS QUICKLY WHICH MAKES LESS CONTACT TIME WITHT HDRYER . GREAT SETTINGS AND EASY CARE . JUST REMEBER TO ALWAYS CLEAN YOUJR FILTER FROM ALL THE DUST IN BATHROOLM
This T3 replaced another T3 that completely broke within 3 years. This one broke in less than 10 months. If you'd rather not buy a hair dryer every year, I recommend you NOT buy T3 products. Their website notes it will replace the product but you need to send the hair dryer back, pay THEM XX.XX for postage all to get another hair dryer that will inevitably break in one year. NO THANKS.
By the way, this hair dryer only has a one year warranty vs. other T3 hair dryers, that have 24 mo warranties.
Thank you for shopping with us lolita36. Your vacuum would work. I hope that idea helps.

Is the purple triangle on the side made of rubber, for anti-vibration when you set it down, or is it a hard plastic?1morsecode on Mar 14, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The highest quality hard plastic, imported Tourmaline gemstones are crushed into fine powder and infused deep into the vital elements of the dryer. Unlike a sprayed coating, the T3 Tourmaline infusion process achieves deeper, longer lasting results. Thank you for your question.

The weight is 16.5 ounces. The watts information was not available but this information is what makes this dryer different;Tourmaline produces maximum levels of ions and infrared heat for efficient drying.
