After years of buying hairdryers at Costco or Walmart, I popped for an Elchim. So glad I did.
I have the Uragano Ionic, which is about 6 years old. Elchim is a company that gives a lifetime warranty on their products. This means the $120 you pay, will be backed up. I have had it worked on once for the shipping cost of $18. They put in a new motor. Granted this was after four years of about daily use.
Prior to that I would go through one blow dryer a year.
So our family now has three of these guys and I won't buy any other brand.
It dries my shoulder length medium thick fine hair in about 10 minutes and seems to reduce the frying. It has multiple temperature settings which I use.

Yes this is as good as everyone says. I've been using ionic dryers for a few years and no wonder I've battled with limp hair all this time. What a difference this dryer makes for my fine hair! I bought the diffused to go with and I'm a happy camper. BUY IT!

Somebody PLEASE help me! I live in the UK and I have purchased the Elchim 2001 professional hair dryer and I'm aware that I need to buy some sort of stepdown transformer in order for it to work. Has anybody in the UK ever been in my situation, if so, which transformer did you buy and where did you purchase it from? I really want to get it working asap! OR Is there anyone who has purchased the Elchim 2001 hair dryer from inside the UK, if so, pleeease give me the website address and I can return my USA Elchim purchased from Amazon asap. Thank you very much xxxxx

I have had this dryer for about 6 years now and it has been fantastic. The only problem I have with it is a clip where the removeable filter locks on broke off and now I have it taped on. Originally it came with two different filters but I can no longer find the original box and I am sure that is where the other filter is. It is extremely important to keep your filter clean especially with a high velocity dryer like this one.
I have thick medium length curly hair which I straighten. I section my hair with rollers and dry each section with a vented round brush then with a round boar bristle brush and have no need to use an iron. I am still amazed at how fast and efficent this dryer is. After I finish drying I blow my hair all over with the cool setting just to make certain it is completely dried and to just cool it down.
I have often wondered if some of these newer ion, tourmaline etc dryers are a lot better but after reading many of the reviews on here I doubt I could do better. I agree with others it is a little weighty but I figure it's a like a little arm workout while I dry my hair!

I have fine, frizzy, wavy hair, up to my shoulders. I have had this dryer for 2 years. It takes me 5 min to dry my hair, and it dries pretty straight that I spend less time using my straightener, 5-15 min depending on the style. I used to have to spend more time using the straightener to compensate for the dryer leaving my hair wavy. You will not be disappointed with this blow dryer, it'll last you a long time.

I bought the Elchim 2001 dryer from Amazon for about $70. I am absolutely in love with this dryer! I've always used ionic dryers priced around $30, but picked this one up based on the MUA reviews. The quality is great! I can tell it is very well made of high quality materials. The dry time is AMAZING. The third heat setting is very, very hot, but is good if I'm in a rush, am setting with rollers, or if want my hair very straight. The middle heat setting is great for regular drying. It dries my hair in a fraction of the time, with far smoother results. The weight is okay, not as light as the T3, but lighter than many. The cord is very sturdy and thick. I'm very happy. I will update this review if I encounter any reliability or quality problems.

Got my dryer a few weeks ago, so thought I'd put it through its paces before adding my two cents. I. LOVE. IT. My old dryer wasn't very good, the cold setting quit working eons ago, it took forever to get my hair dry. The Elchim is a little bit heavier, but not enough to be a problem. Drying my hair now takes probably half the time it used to. The hottest setting is really hot, so I don't keep it there for very long. The coldest is actually cold, which is nice. I would absolutely buy this dryer again.

LOVE this hair dryer. LOVE. IT. I always used a drug store Revlon dryer and kept asking my hair stylist how to get my hair to look more like it does when she does it. She kept telling me to get an Elchim dryer, but I just didn't want to spend the money (about $90). Finally I decided I was spending enough money to get my hair cut and colored every 2 months that I might as well spend a little extra to make it look better every day. SO glad I did.
The dryer dries my hair faster, which is nice, and the hair is super-straight and shiny. It really separates the hairs so it moves and swings beautifully, not like one big mass of hair. Only negative is that it's pretty heavy. It also gets REALLY HOT so I am conscious about drying my hair evenly so one part doesn't dry first and get fried while I'm drying the rest of it.
I've had the dryer for 3 years or so, and when it eventually breaks I will buy it again!

Ok, this is my first and only professional hair dryer. I used conair and Vidal sasoon in the past. lol. I've been wanting to get a pro one that will makes my hair super shiny and closed the cuticles well. I know some salon who used the T3 will give me this result. But, I got mixed reviews about T3 hair dryers, so I didn't buy it. Anyway, this Elchim is like a turbo engine hair dryer. It blows really strong. It's also made in Italy, which I'm very picky about when it comes to manufacturing products. So, I assumed it must be a good product and great reviews from folica.com Obviously my hair dries quicker and the air is very strong. But, I don't really see and feel that "shine" like typical T3 hairdryers give you. Minus 1 lippy for that. It's a bit heavy, but it's okay, doesn't bother me. I'm still searching......Overall, it's a pretty good hair dryer. I've had it for almost a year now.

My T3 travel hairdryer broke down after three years of use and I decided that I would look into another brand. I just purchased the Elchim Haridryer off of Amazon and have been using it for about a week and I love it!! It is so much better than the T3. My hair is MUCH smoother and managable and it think that it does dry it faster. The only down side is that it is a little heavier than my T3 travel haridryer which is to be expected.
I got a great price on Amazon...

I switched to this dryer from the T3 Evolution. I had used the Evolution for a few years and decided maybe it wasn't worth the $300 price tag. So, I returned it and ordered the Elchim 2001 based on the reviews here. The Elchim was okay...better than a $20 or $30 dryer, not so great compared with the Evolution. I gave the Elchim a fair chance for about a month.
I have very fine straight hair that only takes a few minutes to dry, with any dryer. So my hair situation doesn't compare to people who spend 30 minutes every day using their hair dryer, and I refuse to spend more than 5 minutes/day with mine. I also don't use a brush when I dry my hair. The Elchim pushed my 5-min limit, blew the air so strongly that my hair got tangled every morning and my hair was blown around so much that the volumizing product was rendered useless, and my hair was limp all day.
In comparison, the Evolution dried my hair in about 3 min, my hair never got tangled, and the volumizer didn't get moved around so much that it disappeared in my hair. Howeveróthe Evolution was way too expensive, and I refused to repurchase. So I got the T3 Featherweight, which only differs from the Evolution in that it doesn't have the temperature adjustment (though it does have a cool shot button). I'm much happier with the Featherweight than with even the Evolution (see my review for the Featherweight dryer). The Elchim 2001 dryer was returned to fhorhair.com (which, by the way, I highly recommend; their customer service and prices are both top notch).

I read numerous reviews before finally settling on which dryer to buy. It's the first time I was about to spend more than $20 or $30 for one, but I got a great deal on my last dryer 2 years ago so I didn't feel guilty buying a new one. So I am going to be comparing this one to my previous Vidal Sassoon Ionizer one (which still works by the way and I loved at first).
First off my hair is almost straight naturally, with frizzies and flyaways. Itís fairly fine and uncolored. I donít use a lot of products and keep a pretty low-maintenance style. When I blow dry my hair I typically flip my head over and blow dry the bottom of my hair while brushing it, flip it back over once itís mostly dry and dry it some more. After itís dry and still warm I brush it.
Comparing the two: First off the Elchim is much better made. It has a heavy duty plastic loop on one side you can use to hang it on the wall or something. Believe it or not the air force is probably equal, both being very powerful (most powerful ones Iíve used). The Elchim has 3 heat settings and 3 speeds and the coolest setting is actually pretty cold (watch out because the highest heat setting gets the air really hot). So there definitely seems like there is a lot of diversity in what you would be able to do with one dryer. The airflow concentrator gets really hot when the temperature is highest, but the dryer itself really doesn't (unlike the Vidal Sassoon). The filter is removable, and the dryer is lightweight in my opinion (especially after trying my momís Infiniti dryer). When I blew my hair dry today I used the medium heat setting and highest speed along with the air flow concentrator that came with it. The time it took to blow dry was probably a touch longer than when using the Vidal Sassoon one (I think if I had used the highest heat setting this may have been different). My hair wasnít quite as full as with the Vidal Sassoon one but it wasnít flat or sticking to my head either. I think the reason my hair had a lot of volume with the Vidal Sassoon one was because it was drying out my hair and damaging it. My hair felt a lot healthier after using the Elchim, it was a lot smoother and shinier, no frizzies to speak of, even the crown/where I part my hair flyaways seemed more tamed by this. This blow dryer would work well for those with thick cury/wavey hair that they want to blow out straight to smooth and shinny due to the power. And the high temperature would work well to set curlers, and whatnot.
Iím going to continue experimenting with it to see which method works the best. I am glad I bought this because I think it will keep my hair much healthier.
Didn't use the airflow concentrator today and blew my hair dry on the highest heat setting (which isn't that hot when you aren't using the airflow concentrator attachment), and it was quicker and more full while still looking healthy.... actually timing it, it took 2Ĺ minutes to FULLY dry my mid-back length hair!!! Quickest dryer yet!

I've had this hair dryer for over 6 years and it still performs perfect. It dries my hair very fast. I have never had a problem with the dryer. I highly recommend this brand. Compared to other high end dryers on the market, this is a bargain.

BEST HAIRDRYER EVER!
I have thickkkk longggg hair that reaches halfway down my back and it would take aaaaaaages to dry! We're talking like 30-40 mins!
I used Remington for a while but it blew a fuse (left it switched on too long!) so I started a hunt for the best hair dryer
Elchim dries my hair SUPER fast, in 10 mins, and since it's used by professional salons (I got it from a salon supply store) I can leave it on for aaaages and it makes no difference, works just as well as when I got it (a year ago) and seems to reduce frizz too!
Did I mention it dries my hair reallyyy reallyyyy fast?
Remington, Revlon, Conair, Babyliss
(sorry I can't be more specific than the brand names, I've forgotten the specific models)

I had mine for 10 years. It just fell off of my hotel hallway countertop onto marble floors. It cracked open - but was still working!....I have finally conceded it had seen its last day, and have put it to rest. I am now off to buy me another - money well spent. Italian made. Need I say more?

I struggled forever trying to decide which dryer to buy. I finally settled on this one after reading the reviews here, and I am definitely pleased! I needed a new dryer because my old one felt like it was melting my hair it was so hot. (It didn't used to be that way, so I think it was fixing to die!) So, the three heat setting work great for me! Also, this dryer is sooo powerful! I would definitely repurchase.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Normal Hair: Brown Eyes: Blue
Very good dryer. 3 speeds and 3 temps. Very nice to be able to leave it on a cold setting. This is preferrable to having to hold down the cool shot button for long periods.
This coupled with some Umberto round boar bristle brushes and Redkens Heat glide cave me the smoothest blow out I've ever managed at home. I lack skill. I've only blow dried my hair on a handfull of occasions before and yet it came out soft and smooth. I credit this to the elchim.
Very professional product for a relatively low price. Love it.

This hair dryer is the absolute best one I've tried. I have been using it for 2 years with no problems. It's powerful--drys my long (middle of back), wavy, medium-textured hair in about 15 minutes. The diffuser (BiDiffusore Duo Diffuser) works great when I want to go curly/wavy--in the same amount of time. I suppose it could be considered a bit noisy, but it's not intolerable. I find it to be fairly lightweight when compared to the Babyliss Pro or the Elchim Uragano. You can't go wrong with this one!

I absolutely love this hairdryer!!!!
Before I had my Elchim I used the conair ion 1875 and the Elchim is much stronger and dries my hair faster!My hair also seems to be less frizzy and more shiny!Would always buy again!Best hairdryer I've ever used!!

Mine is still going strong after almost 6 years. My hairdresser turned me onto this dryer. His entire salon ONLY uses Elchim. I absolutley love my Elchim & have no reason to ever switch. It's powerful, reliable & simply amazing. Worth every penny ..Check around, I am sure there are fair deals online.
