Best blowdryer I have ever used, bought my mom one as well.
Expensive but it last a really long time - I have been using mine for the past 4 years.
This is the most expensive blow dryer I ever used. It actually belong to my friend and she introduced me to this. It dried my long hair in about 10 minutes. I could not believe it and my hair came out very shiny and no flyaways. I rarely blow dry my hair. Normally I air dry. It is also light too. Now I am on the hunt for this at a lower cost or even a dupe. If you know of one, message me. Thanks.
LOVE THIS!!! I have really long thick hair that used to take forever to dry. Ever since I got this hair dryer, it has cut my drying time in half. I'd had mine for four years now and it still works like a charm. I use it with Fekkai Glossing system and all I have to do it dry my hair and it looks fabulous!!!
AMAZING. I have had mine for about 4.5 years. After tax, shipping and duty, I paid a ridiculous price, almost $275 CAD, but it was worth every penny. I know the prices have come down now, thank goodness. But it works the same as when I first got it, my hair is so much less frizzy than it used to be and it dries my hair quickly. If I ever had to replace, I would buy this brand again in a heartbeat.
I returned the Sedu 6000 and exhanged it for this. What a waste of time! No different! I am utterly disappointed with quality and don't quite understand how anyone can rate this highly. I am returning the blowdryer!
Worth every penny! I wish I had known about this years ago. I've never been able to duplicate a salon blowout at home, even though I've used all the same products. Now I know it's not the products, it's the tools! Here's my review of my drugstore dryer vs. Sedu Revolution, styled with no product just to see what the dryers alone could do. (I have long, fine, thick wavy hair that is color treated.)
Drugstore Dryer: Conair Ion (this is better than most other drugstore dryers I've owned)
Lightweight, but long and unwieldy. Awkward to maneuver. Concentrator nozzle too big -- allows lots of air to blow around on sections I'm not working on. Cool shot takes a long time to actually turn cool. I could get hair fairly straight, but had some frizz. Hair got stringy really fast -- had to brush often but went right back to stringy. No shine, rough texture. By day 2, waves were back plus frizzy & puffy.
Sedu Revolution 4000i: Comes with 2 concentrator nozzles -- one wider than the other. Both much smaller than drugstore version, so air stays where you want it. I use the smaller one. Nozzles fit tight -- won't fall off. It's heavier than the Conair, but honestly I haven't noticed any issues with weight. It's 1.4 pounds. Either I'm strong or it dries my hair so fast I don't have time to feel the weight. This dryer is short and compact. I love that! I can point it in any direction all around my head and it never feels awkward -- even in the back. Air flow is tremendous! I use low fan and low heat settings and it dries my hair fast. Usually two passes on a section will dry it.
Placement of buttons is fine for me. Haven't accidentally turned anything off or on, and I like the cool shot button placement because it's easy to reach. You have to press hard, so I haven't accidentally turned it on. Cool shot turns cool much faster than drugstore and it's colder air. Without product, hair was straight. Not 100% frizz-free, but maybe 90%. Hair was shiny, and so soft I could hardly keep my hands off it. Never got stringy -- hardly had to brush at all. By day 2, still straight and shiny, no frizz, no stringiness. Later blowouts w/ a leave-in conditioner eliminated frizz. I don't need any other heat tools -- this alone works great on my hair. Also recommend 100% boar bristle brush for my hair type.
I love, love, love this dryer and have no regrets about the cost. My hair looks so different -- it really looks like I just came from the salon all the time. I got it from Folica.com and they have a special now -- buy 2 items and get an additional 20% off. I bought a hairbrush and got both the dryer and brush for $138.
I bought this dryer during a Folica sale after reading some board reviews of it (in particular by MiaMoore), and I love it! I think the ion generator really calms down the frizz and poofiness of my wavy hair. It's much smoother & shinier than usual.
The dryers I've used in the past include the T3 (have only borrowed not owned), Babyliss (owned), and SuperSolano (owned). They were all incredibly 'meh' in comparison to the Sedu Revolution.
The only downside is that it doesn't dry any faster than with any of my old dryers, but it also doesn't dry any slower. It might speed up if I use the hotter setting, but I'd rather not because I don't want to totally fry my hair.
I really like the compact style of the dryer too. It's pretty much perfect!
Bought this from Folica where they rated it number 1 (naturally, it is the most expensive). Over-researched hair dryers, and, fatigued, finally just caved for the Sedu.
Previously had been using the Hot Tools hair dryers supplied by my health club -- holding one in each hand, using both at the same time (!) -- quite a spectacle --in an effort to reduce the time to dry my chin length fine but thick hair. The new Sedu (just one) dries more hair more quickly than the two simultaneous Hot Tools. The Sedu does not blow as hot-- may-be even as hot -- but emits a much stronger rush of air. And the ions or the tourmaline must really do something -- my hair seems smoother and straighter.
This thing is expensive-- about $120 with a $40 coupon. That's why I am giving it 4 rather than 5 lip pies. I cannot tell whether it is "real" better than its nearest competitors, not having tried them and so rather suspect it is not good "value for money". But it is good. I really do like it. It makes it so much less of an effort to wash and dry my hair every day. It really is so much better than the cheap dryers. Defies belief, really.
I am not comparing this to a drugstore dryer. I am comparing it to my experience with other, comparable high end models. I have owned the CHI Turbo (B) $119, CHI Rocket $125, T3 Evolution (A-) $200. What I look for is something that gives me a quick, 15 MIN salon blowout without damaging my hair over the long run. I bought my CHI Turbo, and sold it when I went away from blow drying. Then regretted it. I purchased a T3 which is amazing for shiny beautiful healthy blow dried hair, but it broke (within warranty). TWICE. So then I purchased the CHI Rocket - which works great - but over time I think its more damaging to hair (I didn't realize it didn't have tourmaline - only ceramic).
I purchased the Sedu 4000i from Folica.com due to the strong ratings and the fact that this dryer was the best comparison I could find to the T3 (6 speed/heat settings, tourmaline, ceramic, and ionic. The list price was $156 but after a coupon I paid about $135.
Results: Shiny, straight, happy hair. I blew my medium length hair out in 15 minutes with a Denman brush. Doesn't frizz up immediately after. Doesn't leave little broken hairs around the sink or in the brush. And after a few blowouts over the past month, I think that the results will remain consistent. Only time will tell if it isn't too damaging. This dryer dries at a good temperature on the first setting, and goes Dominican blowout hot on the second. I don't see myself using the 2nd too often - but its a nice option.
I am pleased so far, and think I have found my replacement dryer. I still love T3 - but got so tired of the replacement costs in the long run it wasn't really worth it. Plus I love that this dryer is very compact, fits easily in my bathroom drawer.
The only negatives are that this blow dryer really needs to come with a comb attachment, and it is heavy. It does well in reducing overall frizz in the hair, and it does dry my hair in half the time it would take my conair dryer. On average I only need to go over each section four-five times vs. 30 times to get a section of my hair dry.
