    I'm also looking for a dryer that legitimately works. It's a bit crazy having to wake up 2 hours before I go to class/work just so my hair can dry and my curls form... I'm tired of waiting. :\ That diffuser looks awesome, btw.

    But I have no dryer as I don't really apply heat to my hair!

    That diffuser looks good because it has a nice deep bowl to cup the curls. I have an expensive dryer that I bought when I was still straightening my hair, but I have found that the cheaper dryers with less power actually work better for diffusing because a) there is less heat so you don't damage your hair b) there is less power so your curls move around more = less frizz.

    I just got a conair diffuser too, but I got the tourmaline model: /home/leaving?target=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sallybeauty.com%2FConair-Pro-Universal-Tourmaline-Finger-Diffuser%2FSBS-345002%2Cdefault%2Cpd.html" class="Popup

    I've only had it for a few weeks, but so far, so good. My dryer also seems to have a wider than usual "snout" and I was worried that this wouldn't fit, but it isn't an issue at all. It fits, it stays on, and it works.
    3a on top and sides, 3b underneath in the back, and 2-something in front. What a mess....:dontknow:

    No color for 7 years, and loving my silver locks :tongue:

    I'm not sure you'll find a dryer for under $10 bucks with 3 temp setting (hot warm cool). Most of the cheaper ones have 2 temps. Here is one at Target for $17.

    Sometimes you can get the dryer diffuser combo for around $25-30. Check out Target and Walmart and see what you can find.
