I have had this hairdryer for years with no problems. I have CRAZY THICK hair that takes forever to dry. Not with this baby!!! It has a SUPER STRONG air power and the cool mode is ACTUALLY cold air!! I swear it cuts the amount of time it takes to dry with my old hair dryer in half.I am so passionate about this amazing hair dryer that i've bought it for my mom and sister. Everyone needs this hairdryer.For the price you will not get a better hairdryer. To be honest, you could spend 10X the price and this would still be the better buy.
I have had this blow dryer for 1 year 4 months and 26 days...today I laid this sucker to rest....It went out in a blaze of glory...and I mean that. Thankfully all of my hair is still on my head and I did not suffer any injuries when my blow dryer took its last breath...of fire. This thing started on fire! It made a God awful screaming noise, which should have been my queue to turn the sucker off but noooooo....I used it...I used it through the smoke smell....and the scream...and then...FIRE..I turned it off when the smoke came billowing out and a small fire could be seen in the back of the dryer. Needless to say...I am looking for an upgrade...until then, I will have wet and weirdly frizzy hair. This dryer was used nearly every single day I owned it, 513days It was used, it has traveled overseas, across state lines, I have used it under the influence, and on days I didn't really want to use it at all, hence the 5 stars. For everything it gave it was good, until it wasn't, I could be bald right now..but the scream was a warning. A warning I would heed and save my locks from the stinky burning smell and the weird burnt look. I recommend this blow dryer and when it starts to scream at you, listen to it.
I bought this Conair Ion Shine dryer specifically to use with the xtava Black Orchid diffuser (also purchased on ), after reading online that it fits this dryer. I was able to pop the diffuser on after removing the diffuser’s inner ring, though it’s a snug fit and took a little effort!I ordered the dryer in the glossy orange color, since that was the cheapest option ($22) and had Prime shipping. I wish there were more color options to choose from (black would be nice), though I do prefer this glossy finish to the “soft touch” versions since I find that the matte finish always ends up peeling off.The dryer came in a box with warranty information, directions/safety manual, an attachment that directs airflow for straightening, and a diffuser. I likely won’t use the attachments; you can see in the photo I included how much smaller and flatter the included diffuser is compared to the xtava.The dryer has 3 heat settings: cool, warm, and hot; and 2 speed settings: low and high. It also has a cool shot button. I find that in reality the cool shot button is more like room temperature, and the other settings are just varying levels of heat. It’s pretty lightweight without feeling cheap, and I like that the filter is removable. It does have a slight plastic-y smell when running that I hope will go away with repeated use.To diffuse my fine 2b wavy hair, I style it in the shower by scrunching with gel (aka, the “scrunch out the crunch” or SOTC method). After plopping in a t-shirt for 5 minutes and scrunching out some excess water, I use this dryer with the xtava diffuser on "cool" heat and low speed. They're pretty easy to switch between with one hand while drying. It dries fully in about 15-20 minutes, compared to 3 hours when I air dry. Then, I scrunch out the hard gel cast to reveal the waves.Overall, the dryer has served its purpose over the last couple months, and fit the diffuser. I’ll probably only use it about once or twice per week, so I hope it holds up for a long time!
Purchased this because it had great reviews and a diffuser. The first one I received had to get sent back because it wasn’t what I ordered (the black came with oil but no diffuser, don’t let the pictures fool you). I reordered in orange, which was on sale.Let me start by saying I have naturally curly hair that frizzes for any reason or even no reason. Doesn’t matter what I use. I was so tired of it I was straightening it.This hair dryer is a blessing! My hair use to take an hour to blow dry because I had to straighten it with the concentrator with my last dryer. Now, it only takes 15-30 minutes to blow dry and I end up with perfect frizz free hair. If I use cool/low it takes 30 minutes but I have no frizz; if I use med/low, it takes 15 minutes but I have a drop of frizz. I wouldn’t try it on anything higher for my kind of hair.I’ve recommended it to my sister and niece as we all have the same kind of hair.
I really like this hair dryer for several reasons. Probably the most important feature for me is that you have choices concerning heat level, as well as air flow level. If you're in a hurry, this hair dryer gets hot enough to dry hair quickly without frying it. If you want to dry more slowly at high heat, or even at a lower heat, the settings allow for those choices as well. You choose the combination that best suits you. The control buttons are placed on the handle, and I have never found their placement inconvenient. I've never accidently changed a setting while using the hairdryer. Another feature I like is that even though this is a big hairdryer, I don't find it overly heavy. I don't feel like I'm lifting weights when I use this product. Although there are probably hairdryers that are lighter, I've not seen one of this quality weigh as little. I definitely take this hairdryer when I'm traveling, simply because I love using it that much. It is not compact, and it does not fold, but that's not a problem for me.
