ADVICE WANTED

Post by ZAVIEMOM on 16th February 2011, 8:59 pm

My CHI hair dryer of years just went out and I'm looking for a new one. It doesn't have to be a CHI because I'm sure there are newer additions out. I want A dryer that is ceramic, ionic, and tourmaline. The price is of no concern because it is an investment. PLEASE HELP

While the heutiful will infuse your hair with moisture (steam), it will not dry it. It is great for deep conditioning and adding moisture.

Thank you! I'm looking for more of a hand held dryer for when I want to wear my hair straight. It's poofy and I can't be in the military with people hating on hair they don't understand. They're quick to say it's to bulky and can you put your cover (hat) on over that?

I would suggest an ION dryer. However, BEWARE: they do not come with comb attachments. Only a diffuser and concentrator. I had to buy a universal attachment (conair had one and someone else.) The comb popping off is a big disadvantage BUT I could dry my hair in about 10 minutes (this is before I cut my hair).

I was so about to hi-jack this post and ask where i can find a comb attachment because i have a CHI and while i was relaxed...that thing was the bomb! i have not been able to use it because i havent been able to find a comb attachment Sad

So, thanks ladies for briging this up...

I would definitely stick with the CHI though...

I purchased an electric blue conair that meets all your requirements and comes with a diffuser, nozzle and comb attachment. It also folds in half and has a retracktable cord.

Thank you ladies. I recently bought the CHI hand shot dryer, which looks identical to a flashlight... weird right? but it has like a camcorder strap too. it is small but it does the job. It has a comb attachment (does get hot and does fall off at times), concentrator nozzle, and diffuser. I bought it at Ulta for $170 (although it's not on their website), which to me is worth the investment.

I want a dryer with a cool setting as well, Im not sure if those work well on natural hair, but I really dont like using a lot of heat at all. Any suggestions?

My Ion has a cool setting. It's actually a button that you have to push continuously instead of flipping the little switch to cool (like how you have hi med and low). I used it after flat ironing my hair to cool it down (thinking it was helping to close the cuticle lol). But like I said the ION doesn't come with a comb attachment Sad

The Best blow dryer is the Conair Pro YellowBird. Man does that thing get your hair dry. The dryer is sold in different watts. It's been a while, so I can't remember if it has a cool setting.
