    This is one that looks interesting - the BedHead Curlipop.  https://www.amazon.com/Bed-Head-Curls-Check-Diffuser/dp/B00JXQ06X8

    I already have a folding dryer and a silicone collapsible diffuser.  It doesn't work very well, but I don't really want to spend any more money on something I use so rarely.  But if I was looking for something else, this one sounds pretty good.

    Also...I edited my first post.  I like at least *1800* watts.

    When I need a new dryer, I usually just go to the drug store and see what they have that fits what I need.  I always go for the highest wattage I can find.  The higher the watts - the better the dryer.  Those stupid hotel dryers are like 600 watts and take forEVER to dry my hair.  I like at least 1800 watts.

    @Guide 65 That's really helpful to know when i go out looking because i have no idea what the wattage means, but i've tried to find smaller travel friendly diffusers and hairdryers but with no luck. I really need something specifically made to be compact, my hairdresser does sell a travel diffuser but it's a two hour commute and the diffuser alone is quite expensive.
