I didn't know that a good hair dryer really can make a difference,

After reading review after review on Amazon I took the plunge and ordered the Babyliss. I am an Amazon Prime member so I am always happy to find something that I want that will be at my door in 2 days -- this actually came in one. (Though that isn't always good when I am trying to hide a purchase!) I couldn't wait to use this dryer so I washed and conditioned my hair the evening it arrived.
I will start off telling you the one reason I didn't give this 4 stars. Others have mentioned the weight and I will agree that so far this is the heaviest dryer I have ever used. I am getting better with it the more I use it and that is not enough of an issue that I still don't love it -- but I would imagine my Mom wouldn't like it since she has had carpel tunnel issues in the past. I hit my head with this dryer the 1st time I used it because I wasn't used to the weight. Though I am not known for my grace either.
I like to style my hair with only a hairdryer but since I had a mishap with some home hi-lighting, my hair is pretty damaged so it is too frizzy after blow drying because of its current condition that I have had to also use a big curling iron or flat iron to smooth it out. No More. I dry it all over which I swear now takes me about 3 minutes - this thing is strong - then I attached the nozzle to smooth and slightly curl my hair under. Amazing. My hair is smooth and shiny. I honestly didn't believe that I would be able to style my hair so quickly and have it look so good. The first time I used it I had so much volume that it was almost comical. My hair was a bit too big. I was used to styling my hair with a lesser dryer and I could tell after one use with this dryer.
A few mentioned the buttons. I had no issues with them. I always look at my dryer to see what the heat, speed etc is before using it so it didn't matter to me like others mentioned that you couldn't change your setting without looking. It's something that doesn't slow me down or matter. I used it only on high heat with both settings. I use the lower speed with the nozzle for more precise styling and high heat, high speed for all over drying. I have never been one to bother with the other settings.
The price for this hairdryer is great. I've bought drug store hairdryers that cost $40 to $50 and there is no comparison. I think it is even a little cheaper now than when I ordered it. I'm tempted to order a backup. That tells you how much I love this thing.
If weight isn't an issue - this is the dryer for you.
