Anybody have an expensive hair dryer?

ShrekLoverShrekLover Posts: 2,551Registered Users
I'm wondering if those hairdryers that cost $200 or more are worth the money. Does anyone have one?

    All of the hairdryers I have ever owned in my life probably don't add up to half of that. : )
    My diffusers cost around $15 and last for years. I have no experience with high end hair appliances, so I'm no help.
    --I'm located in Western PA.
    --I found NC in late 2004, CG since February 2005, started going grey in late 2005.
    --My hair is 3B with some 3A, texture-medium/fine, porosity-normal except for the ends which are porous, elasticity-normal.
    --My long time favorite products are Suave & VO5 conditioners, LA Looks Sport Gel, oils, honey, vinegar.

    I'm looking at those too. I need to replace mine soon--and I'm considering a high-end tourmaline dryer. I've done a lot of research, and I think I'm going to go for the FHI Heat Nano Salon Pro 2000 Hair Dryer, based on its reviews. (Google it, they also sell it on Amazon).

    I probably won't buy it until January...but when I do, I'll post back my own review on this forum.

    I did notice that my ionic hair dryer I have now made a dramatic difference in my frizz level, so I'm thinking why not splurge on the cutting-edge technology? My hair needs all the help it can get. :laughing8:

    i bought a t3 6 years ago, still love it. (at the time i think i paid about $120 for it with a gift card -- it was definitely not $200).
    it is the only hair dryer that does not frizz my hair.

    curlylinzee -- what is better about that one than the t3s? i am interested in seeing your review of it once you use it.

    I own the FHI nano salon pro 2000 - I love it! I got it from my hair salon because that's what my hair dresser uses. It comes with a concentrator which I never use and a really great diffuser which I always use. What I especially like about this dryer is that it is powerful without blowing my hair every which way. I think it really does cut down on frizz.

    I sprung for the T3 about 8 years ago and love it. And for alot of that time I was blowing my hair straight every day....Never had a problem with it and it still works as good as it did when it was new.

    I bought it because I got tired of having less expensive blowers burn out midway thru a blow dry after only a year or two.....

    Thanks everyone. I've heard of the t3's but not the nano. I'm gong to check the link. I should have mentioned that I don't straighten so that is why I was wondering if it really made a difference. I don't diffuse either. My hair comes out curly enough without diffusing.

    2poodles - the reviews on Amazon are mostly great, but a couple mention that it is heavy. What do you think?

    Here's a link for $149, plus free shipping and if you use their code you get a free flat iron. I won't use that but I may play with it. I'm seriously considering this.

    Ok, that was too good to pass up. I just ordered it with the free flat iron and I bought the heat/volumizing spary they recommended. I'm going to let my husband give this to me for Christmas.

    I think you'll be very happy with the hair dryer. I haven't found it particularly heavy - but it's not a tiny little light weight either. It's built to last. And yay you for finding it at a great price!! :thumbleft:

    I have a T3 Evolution bought a few months ago on sale for $140 (good price). I love it - no frizz, it doesn't blow my hair around and it dries hair fast.

    I think the T3 and nano are quite comparable, but when I read through many of the reviews on Amazon, it seemed that the Nano got better ratings. Some customers got "dud" T3's and were quite unhappy. So, I based my decision to go with the Nano instead. I won't be purchasing it until next month, so I'll post my review then. Seems like they're both good driers, though. I like the fact that the Nano comes with a diffuser and you don't have to buy it separately--this also ensures it will fit! Those universal diffusers don't always fit or stay on, which is incredibly annoying to me!

    Thanks, I'm hoping I'll love it as much as the reviews. The T3 also got great reviews so it was hard to decide. My husband is a bit worried that it will be too hot for him. His hair is thin. We just leave the dryer on the counter because we both use it every day. I told him no whining. He can use the one we have now if he doesn't like it, although that will be a bit of a pain because the only outlet is by my sink.

    But some of the reviewers said they had trouble returning it or getting it fixed since Amazon is not authorized by the company to sell it. Some said it was no problem but to me the chance wasn't worth it. Folica says they will take it back and replace it for a year under the warranty. Also with free shipping and the free flat iron I'm not at all unhappy with the price.

    I just checked the link and today instead of the flat iron they have an additional $25 any order over $75 still with free shipping. I actually would rather have had that, but I'm still good.

    By strange coincidence,I found the FHI Heat Nano Weight Pro 1800 at Target tonight...selling for $80. Same technology and good reviews as the 2000, so I grabbed it. :blob4:

    I took it out of the box to take a gander at it in the store--it's very light-weight. I'll try it out next time I style my hair (probably tomorrow) and report back whether I notice a difference between this and my old ionic hair dryer. The one thing it promises is that it will dry hair much faster...should also increase shine and condition.

    I'll report back! I'm excited to try it out..

    Okay, I tried it. This is a difficult review to do because there are more new factors in today's routine than just the new dryer. The bottom line: I'm having one of the best hair days in recent years today.

    As for the dryer itself:

    Pros: Overall, I like it very much. It's very lightweight and easy to handle; it's also much quieter than my old one. The diffuser fits on the dryer perfectly and does not appear as though it would ever pop off! :blob4:The cord is nice and long.

    Cons: The 1800 model does not have heat settings, just fan (speed) settings--low and high. I noticed this last night after I got it home. I usually use low speed and both low and high heat. This one only allows one heat setting and it's f'ing HOT! Very hot. There is a cool shot button, though.

    As for my hair, like I said, I'm having one of the best hair days ever! My hair is so much curlier that it's actually hanging about 3 inches shorter! (I guarantee that at least one person who sees me today will ask me if I got a perm and/or haircut...that's how dramatic the difference is.)

    I'm going to post separately about these results though, because I did a few things differently than I usually do--and I really think it was the combo of things that made the overall difference. Not sure how much I could fairly attribute to the new hair dryer alone.

    I have very, very little frizz, good definition, and some shine. I haven't added my JCNS yet, which is usually where I really get my shine from anyway. So can't say this dryer really added a lot of shine.

    Since I saved all of the packing materials, I may take this dryer back and then get the 2000 model. I'm pretty sure that one had multiple heat settings.

    All in all, the only bummer is that the heat is f'ing hot on this thing! (I was putting the diffuser up to my scalp and man, it was HOT!) :sad5:

    Thanks for the review. That's really strange that there is only one heat setting on that.

    I ordered this Solano yesterday through Folica.com. The price was $99 but I got $20 off ($20 off of $75+ order) plus will get another 8% off for going through Mr. Rebates. It's not $200 but definitely more than I've ever put into a dryer. I decided on the Solano brand based on the product reviews on Folica. Hoping that I will be pleased with it. I usually buy cheapy brands but decided to splurge this time.

    I've been using the FHI Nano Salon Pro 2000 since Christmas day. It is a tiny bit heavier than my old one, but it's nothing I would have noticed if it hadn't been pointed out in reviews. It is very powerful and if I use it on the full settings (heat and power) it blows my hair much straighter than my old one did. I did try the diffuser and my hair came out curlier, it was on a par with my old dryer and no diffuser. I have decided to use it on the high heat but the medium power and I get more curl but don't have to use the diffuser. I don't think it dries my hair any faster though. I know that sounds odd. I haven't timed it but it just "feels" like I am blow drying for the same amount of time as I used to, no matter which setting I use. I personally don't see any advantage to this over the $20 one I was using except that it is much quieter.

    My husband really likes it though. He likes the power of it and the quietness.

    ETA: I do really like the long cord, hubby can take the dryer over to his sink and I don't have to move out of his way anymore while he dries.

As good as the Z-ion was on my hair, it was brutal for straightening my daughter's hair.

    The FHI Heat Nano Pro 2000 works really well. It is very powerful. The FHI Heat on low was as powerful as the Z-ion on high.

    I always use it on high heat. I diffuse for a minute or two with my head tipped down on high speed. I then lift my head and continue diffusing on low speed, high heat. My hair dries really quickly, great curl formation and no frizz.

    how is the diffuser on this one. Is it so powerfull that the hair blows around at all?

    No, the diffuser does not let your hair blow all over the place.

    As a result of this thread, I treated myself the the FHI nano. It's great. I use it on high heat/low speed for a few minutes to diffuse upside down. It doesn't blow the hair around, at all.

    Only expensive dryer I had previously was the Deva dryer. The diffuser gave me a lot of frizz, so I swapped it. I should have tried it with a different diffuser.

    So, what am I missing out on? What makes a $200 dryer better than my $15-25 pancake dryers. Mine are small and light, easy to pack for a trip, have lasted for years, don't blow my hair around, have different heat and fan settings, don't make my hair frizz, and dry my hair as they're supposed to.

    If the expensive ones make hair healthier, thicker, grow faster, etc - it's worth the money and I would buy one! If it just dries hair, I don't understand what makes it better.

    Hey, Jeep - if you're happy with your current dryer, stick with it! I was never able to find one that I liked, so when I decided I liked the one that my hairdresser used, I bought one just like it....

    If you read post #21 I explain what I think. Mostly I say stick with what you have if you're happy. I don't think mine is worth the extra money but since hubby really likes it and I'm ok with it I'll keep it.

    This dryer cuts drying time by 1/3. I even used it once for a blowout and no flat iron was need as my hair came out soft, shiny and static free. However since I do not blowfry any longer, I use the diffuser that goes with this dryer and have been using it regularly since 12/10 on the medium setting and there is absolutely no damage. Even the diffuser has tourmaline. At my age I have gone through many dryers and the drug store brands just do not stand up to regular daily long term use like professional brands. Ask any hairdresser! This was definitely worth the splurge. Just as we would not wash a fine cashmere sweater with Tide, we should also treat our hair like cashmere or fine silk. Research, research and research some more and then purchase the best dryer you can afford! Our waves and curls are definitely worth it :-o
