I've used cheap conair hair dryers and when yet another one broke down I decided to fork over some money for a better quality one. Sally's had a deal where if you buy the dryer you get a curling iron free, and I needed a good curling iron so I decided the $60 was worth it.
The dryer comes with a concentrator nozzle and a small sample of one n' only's argain oil. It's apparently supposed to have argan oil infused into the grill of the dryer, but I'm not quite sure how that would work but I can't say that it's readily apparent whether or not it makes a difference.
But regardless I tried the dryer and was amazed. My dry time was halved- maybe even quartered. The hot setting was hot and the cold shot button served up air that was actually cold (not just lukewarm like most). There are 2 switches, one for temperature (hot, warm cold) and another for airspeed (high low off) as well as the coldshot button.The air speed was remarkable as well, the low speed was like the high on all my previous dryers. The cable is of the swivel type and in my experience was not prone to tangling. I haven't used the concentrator nozzle much but when drying with a round brush it's especially helpful.
The dryer was simply awesome and it's especially apparent when I blow my hair straight. It's smooth, shiny and not frizzy at all.
I'm not sure whether I'd be willing to buy it for full price or without any deals on the side, but all I know is that this hair dryer is what dreams are made of. Now if only they made a diffusor accessory...
