What hair dryer fits the Revlon Universal Diffuser??

Hi all...I purchased the Revlon Universal Diffuser with Ceramic Technologoy sold on the Ulta site.
It looks great - and the reviews on our NC site are glowing. Well, I have tried SIX different hair dryers with it ( 3 of them Revlon) and can not find one that will fit! The diffuser pops off immediately.

If anyone uses this great diffuser, would you mind sharing the brand & model of your hair dryer? It might sound strange, but I want to buy a hair dryer to fit my diffuser...and not the other way around! :happy6:
Thanks!

    Reading reviews, people are saying you gotta push it really hard or it'll pop off. Push hard until it snaps.

    If that doesn't work, I saw a curly girl on youtube who duct taped her diffuser onto her dryer, lol. It worked well too. I think she was someone from NC actually.

    I have one that I used on a Revlon dryer with a round, pretty standard sized (rather than large) nozzle without problems. You do have to push it on with a fair amount of force, and will feel a stop when you have it all the way on when pushing with steady force.
    Peace,

    Are you pushing hard enough? Have a friend that just was not pushing enough.

    Thanks all... I did push it on as far as it possibly could go on all of the hair dryers. I even had my husband try! Each time, it didn't just slide off - it flew off! I'm taking the diffuser with me to a drugstore and see if there is one it will stay on. If there isn't, I'll resort to duct tape! :eye:

    Taking the diffuser to the store may not help. I have found that when the dryer gets warm causes the diffuser will slide off.

    I have use foam tape around my FHI hair dryer because I liked my Revlon diffuser and not the FHI's. The FHI dryer is smaller than the Revlon dryer. I wrapped the foam tape with a pretty duct tape and the diffuser stays on. If you use duct tape around the entire thing you can't use the concentrator if you need to.

    See if that helps.
