Excerpt: I’ve had my Conair Ion Shine hair dryer for about 2 years now. I bought it because I wanted a hair dryer that will help eliminate damage to my hair while drying and I thought the ion shine feature would help keep my hair shiny.
Summary: I bought this dryer because it came with a diffuser. The point of a diffuser is to cradle the curls and dry them into their shape. When I tried to use the diffuser the blow dryer was still blowing the air hard, even on the low setting. I literal had to grab my hair and place it in the diffuser. Otherwise, the dryer was blowing my hair/curls all over the place, not very effective.
Summary: I was looking for an Ionic hair dryer so it wouldn't dry my hair out so much. This was a great buy but it does not fit in most vanity drawers and finding a hook to fit the hanger that is on the dryer is very difficult. So I end up taking it from the bathroom to the bedroom after each use. That I don't like. But for the money, this was a good buy.
Summary: At this price it's a steal. I've been using the dryer for about a week and like it. It's different from my last dryer and takes a little getting used to for me. The high fan speed is really a blast, unlike my last dryer, and would probably be good for someone with really long hair, but too strong for my short hair but the low setting works ok. The barrel is quite a bit longer than my last dryer and I keep hitting myself in the head, but I'm sure I'll get used to it :-).
Summary: The price on this hairdryer was great and it seems to work well so far. I ordered it via site-to-store and it actually arrived in only two days! My only complaint would be that it is fairly easy to hit the wrong buttons, but I think that may just be because they're in a different location than on my previous dryer. It's a good purchase overall.
