Customer Reviews:
  • Works great, I love it.
    I'd spent a few hours online looking for a good hot air brush, and the reviews were best for this one (I was specifically looking for one with interchangeable barrels). My only wish is that it worked better as a dryer with the directional barrel, but c'est la vie. It works great if you blow-dry your hair damp and then use the round barrels. My hair is bone straight, and this is the only way I can get any kind of wave(at the ends) for any length of time. And I don't know if it's the ionic feature, or actually drying my hair, but after using this product, my hair is shinier, softer, and tamer than if I let it air-dry....more info
  • I can't function without this item
    I love this tool. I have 4 of them because I am scared that one day they will stop making them!! I wish there was one that had an even bigger barrel because my hair is pretty long. I recently let my hair air dry just to remember what it was like and I had the worst day!!! If anyone has a similar product that is bigger, ionic, and has boar bristles AND hard plastic teeth mixed like this does, let me know!...more info
  • Good for the price
    For the price this is a very good product. Keeps the frizzies and fly aways in check and adds body and shine. ...more info
  • Good purchase
    I debated and debated about which hairdryer to buy, and finally, based on reviews, I chose this one. I waited until I'd used it a few times to review it, and here are my findings: This dryer does dry your faster, and I can get some really nice, smooth curls with it. I don't find it to be too loud, compared with the dinosaur of a dryer I was replacing when I bought this one. When I read in the reviews that people were having trouble avoiding the on/off swith while drying, I thought, "Ok, now that I know it, I won't do it". Well guess what? There's no way TO avoid it. Although it's no biggie, a better design is definetly in order. You WILL turn the dryer off by accident while using it. Now, the ionic part...I will have to say, my hair feels different when I use this, but, I'm not sure I like how it feels. However, it's winter, and I've got all kinds of static going on, so I'll have to reserve that opinion for later this year.
    All in all, I would recommend purchasing this dryer. Price is right for a good dryer. ...more info
  • Exactly what I was looking for!
    My hair is that frizzy, curly type that is difficult to manage. Using just a regular blow dryer leaves my hair dry and flyaway. I have tried hair straighteners, and curling irons. Maybe I'm uncoordinated but these items were a pain to use and did not accomplish what I needed. I was looking for a hot air curling brush, that was also ionic, hoping it would leave my hair shiny, silky and smooth, with a soft curl to it as well. This product does it all. I would pay 3 times what this item cost to get the same results, and an added bonus is it that it takes very little time now to dry my hair. I would normally take at least 20 minutes to blow dry, and now it only takes 10 minutes. I start out with a regular blow dryer, to the point where my hair is 70 - 80% dry, then follow with the Conair Hot Brush. It is true that the controls are in an awkward place. Conair take note and change your design a little next time. Otherwise, this product is very highly recommended. ...more info

    This brush works great. It does exactly what the description of the product tells you it does. It is a great deal for the price....more info
  • maybe a better design is out there.
    The on/off - fan speed switch is poorly placed - when holding the grip it's sometimes difficult not to change settings. Otherwise, it's a good concept but needs some design tweeking....more info
  • I wouldn't have believed it could make such a difference...
    ...until the motor went out on the one I had been using for 2 years.

    I had thought that the 'ionic' thing was mostly hype, but started using this product a couple of years ago out of curiosity. My entire life, I have had naturally curly, flyaway hair that was annoyingly prone to frizzing and just generally difficult to manage. I wasn't sure if it was this dryer that had finally started smoothing out my hair, or if it was rather the newer conditioners and styling cremes I had found.

    When the ionic brush dryer I was using recently 'died', I was unable to find a replacement in any local stores. So, instead, I bought one that looked exactly the same that wasn't ionic, thinking it really wouldn't make any difference. Boy, was I wrong!!! Immediately, I was again dealing with split ends, frizzies, and flyaway hair.

    There HAS to be something to 'ionic' hairdryers that really DOES make a difference, as I changed nothing else. Being the scientific person that I am, I repeated this unplanned 'experiment' at least 3 times. When I use this product, my hair is noticeably silkier, shinier, and bouncier...with healthy waves that hold (I have somewhat thick hair.) The round brush/dryer style also dries my hair much quicker than the way I used to do it for years (with round brushes and typical pistol-style dryers), and with much less arm-fatigue. The heated air dries it from the 'inside out' which styles it at the same time, eliminating my previous need for the use of a curling iron or hot rollers to create soft waves/curls after drying.

    I plan to keep a spare one hand for the next time one dies on me suddenly. (I feel like 2 years was a good life, considering the use it got.)

    I highly recommend this hair dryer if you have hair like mine....more info
