So... after a recommendation from a friend, I finally decided to buy a babyliss, and after reading reviews went for the BABP2800... HOLY COW, was I missing out.... The only complaint I have is that I have always held my blowdryer by the nozzle rather than the handle, it helps provide greater control, but with this dryer, there is NO WAY you can hold by the nozzle, it gets waaay too hot and after fumbling around for a while, I got a bit more comfortable holding by the handle. The air pressure is good, I have always gotten my hair blown straight at Dominican places, and their blowdryers must be shipped in to the US, b/c I have yet to find one here with equal air pressure. The BEST thing about this is it gets VERY HOT, very quickly! This is NOT for people with fine hair! I am latin, I have very thick, coarse, long wavy hair, and this NO JOKE dried my hair in 40 minutes. I have never been able to do it myself in under an hour, usually 1 1/2, and I still have to go after with a straight iron! My hair is stick straight and SHINY! The nozzle stays put, just be careful to make sure its in the right place before you start drying, it will be way too hot to try to move after you start! Long story short, I highly recommend!
