I was in desperate need of a hair dryer because my old cheapy was beginning to fry sections of my hair each time I blow dried it. My sister had this same exact hair dryer, so I was lucky enough to try it out first. The quality of this hair dryer is so much better than the one I used to own. It dried my hair very quickly and created volume! I had to have my own, and surprisingly enough I found the same exact one on Overstock at a better price than other beauty supply stores. I know its expensive, but it is well worth the investment!
