Blow Dryers

A question I get asked often is does the kind of blow dryer really matter? YES! Well unless you don't mind spending 30+ min blowing out your hair. With all the new technology out there be it nano, ionic or tourmaline they cut down the drying time in some cases by half. I will tell you what I use as a professional and then list some of the other tops according to my internet friends.
The Chi Rocket is what I was using in salon until a few weeks ago when mine broke apart. I really like this blow dryer, but I think it's really not made for heavy use i.e. all day everyday.

Now I've switched to FHI Heat and I'm really liking it. It's super light weight and dries really well.

Last, for the good yet inexpensive dryers we have the Infiniti by Conair Professional Tourmaline Ionic Styler Dryer

And the Revlon Tourmaline Ionic


  1. I just bought the Revlon Tourmaline yesterday. I hope it works on my fine hair. Thanks for posting this.

  2. I love that you recommended my cheapie conair infinity dryer! :)

  3. do you find there to be a big difference between the cheapies and the expensive hair dryers?

  4. To be honest I haven't used a cheap one in a very long time. My sister and friends use the Revlon and Conair ones and find they work great. You really just need something that gets hot, but not too hot. I think if you spend around $50 or more you should be able to get one that is good.
