This dryer is just okay. I appreciate that it's lightweight and I *like* the super long cord. The truth is that my (heavier) Conair ionic blow dryer left my hair smoother. Don't know that weight has much to do with anything - I guess I'm just a little disappointed.

If my house caught on fire, I would run back in to get this hair dryer. I didn't think a dryer would make that much of a difference in the health, style and look of my hair. When I tearfully confessed that I was thinking of going to my natural hair color (gasp! no!), my hairdresser suggested I upgrade from my $15.00 travel sized dryer.
What an amazing decision. I looked at $80.00 dryers, but there didn't seem to be much difference between a $20.00 dryer and an $80.00 dryer. Then I picked up this dryer, my new best friend, my secret weapon, my happy place...
It cuts drying time. It makes your hair soft, smooth and silky. It sings you a song while you put on your makeup. Well, maybe not the last one. But, in all honesty, this is one of the best beauty purchases I've made. Ever.

I have naturally curly, fine, highlighted hair and I have a LOT of hair. I blow it out 2-3 times per week and I've been doing this for around 20 years so I've been through a lot of dryers. This one's pretty good but I won't repurchase because I prefer the T3. Pros: this dryer lasted longer than any other high-end dryer I've bought. Cons: expensive, heavy, LOUD, air blast is too strong for me and I think it makes my hair frizzy. I prefer a lot of heat and less air, so I've switched to the T3, which is hotter and quieter than the SuperSolano. Unfortunately, the T3 also costs a fortune and breaks after a year of my use (abuse?).

One of the worst beauty purchases I have ever made. I bought the Supersolano dryer on the recommendation of a stylist, and spent around $100. She recommended this dryer because I use a diffuser. Big disappointment. The dryer weighed a ton, was so loud I actually dreaded using it, and the motor blew out in less than six months of 2-3 uses per week. I've had much better luck with Jilbere Paris dryers from Sally Beauty Supply. I've owned three Jilbere dryers. The first lasted about 5 years, which is a lifetime for me, and the second lasted about 3 years before I accidentally shortened its lifespan by getting the cord hung in a door (long story). I'm on the third one now. The best part? I've spent less on all three of these dryers combined than I did the Supersolano, and they are, to a machine, just as fast at drying my hair, lighter, and quieter.

HG! Great hairdryer. I have thick, long hair, and this dries it FAST.

Just another fan--I have 2 and both had the filter pop/break off rather easily almost as soon as I bought them. Other than that I really love it. It dries and styles my fine (but a lot of it) long (mid-back) hair in 20 minutes.

I bought this dryer after my hairdresser recommended it. It gets very hot and works well, but the motor broke within a year of owning it. It was a shame because if I spend that much money on a hair dryer, I feel it should last more than a year. Not happy.

This is the Cadillac of all hair dryers. I love it so much, I purchased two. Yes, its expensive, but worth it.

I'm reviewing the Super Solano 1800 watt professional hair dryer. I'm a hairstylist, and my blowdryer gets tons of use each day. I've purchased 2 of these so far. I love the long cord, and the 3 heat, and 2 speed settings. The cool shot button works quickly, and the dryer comes with three nozzle attachments.
I've had my coworkers tell me that this dryer is a bit on the heavy side, but I havent noticed. This isnt the quietest blow dryer, but it does work quickly and effectively.
The first Supersolano that I used at work lasted for a year, but after dropping it a few too many times, the filter on the back broke. The motor still works fine, and I use it at home for my own personal use, but because it's missing that part, the moving parts of the dryer are exposed, and I wouldnt want to get any clients hair stuck!

This hair dryer is really superb. I recently used my mother's hair dryer and I was so annoyed because it didn't have anywhere near the power behind it that the Solano has. I've had my Solano for about 4 years and never had any problems with it. I wouldn't recommend using it anywhere but the US because the high wattage could destroy the motor if used in another outlet (from another country). I destroyed my $200 flat iron that way, even with the converter. With the Solano hair dryer, it takes me 5 minutes to dry my medium length hair. And when I'm drying my medium-length hair 5lb yorkie/maltese mix, it takes me about 15 minutes. The stream of heat with this hair dryer is more directed and makes drying hair in sections a breeze.

I really liked my supersolano UNTIL it broke on me after only a year! I started noticing that it would go off and on as I was trying to blow dry my hair, and then the next thing I know it started sparking and obviously short circuited. I don't think a blow dryer of this high standard should have this happen. Although I was very disappointed and will not repurchase a new Supersolano, I will say that when it did work, I loved it. It left my hair silky smooth and cut the drying time in half compared to the cheaper dryers on the market. I liked the durability and style of the dryer, however, it was a little heavy. Overall, a good dryer, but should not have died in such a short period of time!!!!

This hair dryer is excellent - it dries my medium-thick, long hair much faster than a regular hair dryer. The motor is really powerful. When I blow dry my hair straight with this I can really tell the difference. The first time I used it, my friend said my hair looked silky smooth and asked if I had gotten Japanese hair-straightening. I took that as a compliment. I simply cannot get the same kind of blowdry when I use another hair dryer. There are a few drawbacks, however. The lenghth/size of the blowdryer took some getting used to, so for those who don't have the patience this might not be for you. It can feel bulky and your arms might get tired. Also the metal hair attachment nozzle gets REALLY really hot...be careful. (I burned the skin on my hand with it.) Finally, some people can't justify spending that amount of money on a hairdryer. But I've gone through many a hairdryer and this one has lasted the longest. For me, it's totally worth the investment.

HAHAH! just when I was about to give his a horrible review because the heat kept just turning off on its own, right out of the box, I realized that my finger was on the cold shot button the way I was holding it!! I honestly went weeks without noticing this, duh! Ok, great dryer. A little heavy but it does dry it much faster and hair just feels healthier, less like I just went through a wind storm.

OMG! Simply the best hairdryer I have ever bought! Also, the most expensive! haha. But, you know what? It's worth it. Now that I compare this SuperSolano to my old Conair 1875 Ion dryer, there is NO comparison. I think the Conair was frying my hair and I load my hair down w/all kinds of conditioning products and heat protectants. The first time I used my Solano, I knew I struck gold! It's powerful, but the heat is no overpowering or exessive. It's not too loud and I love how fast it dries the hair. My hair comes out so soft and doesn't feel dried out and frizzy. I barely have to use my HAI straightener. I'm going to try and take care of this dryer (cleaning out the filter every month) so that it won't burn out on me. But, I'll buy it again in a heartbeat if it does!

What a fabulous blowdryer! I'd been toying with the idea of purchasing a quality blowdryer for months - either a Solano, a T3, an Elchim, or a Chi. With the advice of my hairdresser, who loves her Supersolano, I went with this one. The T3 has been received by most I know with some reservation; the Elchim gets wickedly hot; and the Chi, for some odd reason, doesn't do its job as well when used while working a brush, although it's so light, I'd love to be able to look past that fact. The Supersolano is best all around, though, I find. It dries much quicker than any Conair I've tried to date (although, even after ordering from goodmans, is still three times the (Canadian) price.) Ah, but what price great hair?

Love this blow dryer. it works great with my curly thick hair. Not to loud and has the power of a high velocity fan. I am a mother of a 20 month old and I need my blowdrying time cut in half. This dryer cuts down the time for me. Love it and recommend it. The best why would all the salons use them!!!

I bought a Supersolano hairdryer because it has been featured in In Style magazine's Best of Beauty for several years in a row. The heating element broke within one year. I sent the item back to the company for repair, but it was never the same. Even after they returned it to me, the heating element did not work as well as it did when it was new. I have had an Elchim dryer for several years now and highly recommend it to anyone else. You can find one on ebay for a fairly reasonable price.

I'm on a quest to replace my old dryer so after trying the T3 Tourmaline (with extremely poor results) I bought a Supersolano. Although it's a big improvement from the T3, it's going back to the store. It's very powerful but it doesn't heat up as much as my Elchim, so straightening with a brush is not too easy. Secondly, I don't like the way the switches are placed on the handle, I would constantly push the on/off or cool shot buttons by mistake. I'm pretty sure I already own my HG, nothing else seems to work for me.

Well, you could blow me over with a feather. I never thought a better blow dryer would make this much difference. Yes I could never achieve the results my hair stylist did but chalked it up to my ineptitude. I kept buying new blow dryers every year until I said enough! And bought a solano. Yes they're expensive but I hope they end up cheaper in the long run than buying a new blow dryer every 8-12 months (and my hair is fine and straight!)After 1 use I did achieve salon results--I'm not inept like I thought! My hair was full, shiny and the blow out lasted all day which is a record for my fine hair. I had read the reviews here first and followed the advise to use a silicone spray and used a medium setting to begin with and got great results. I bought the Super solano and am not disappointed. Bought from Ball Beauty for 78.00 and it came in about 5 days. This dryer is worth every penny!

The best dryer out there! I have very curly thick, curly, coarse and this makes it soft and dries much quicker than my hot tools dryer. I will never be cheap again with hair tools. I had a bad experience wtih ionic dryers. They made my hair so frizzy and harsh. Ionic dryers are a total hype. Stick with Solano. They have the top quality dryers!!
