So I tend to burn up blow dryers at least once a year. One actually caught fire on me once. After the fourth hairdryer in 3 years I decided it was time to make an investment in a quality professional grade dryer. I spoke with a hairdresser who recommended a BaByliss, which is the brand that she uses for her clients.
Off the the Beauty Supply store I went. The BaByliss Pro TT 5000 was around $150, a major investment for someone who had never paid more than $30 prior to that. The dryer seemed nice; it came in a crocodile embossed hard case. That’s good right?
It worked like a dream for about 4-6 months. The tourmaline feature made my hair smooth and silky. But soon after that, it wasn’t working as well. Around nine months it started getting really hot and vibrating. Then some 4 weeks later, I heard something break inside and the damn thing broke. My $150 hair dryer broken? Really?!
So I thought maybe it was a fluke, I paid the $15 for shipping to send back the old dryer and accept a new replacement. Well, wouldn’t you know it, it’s making that vibrating noise again and I heard a loud pop this morning. It still works, but only on a low setting without heat. What is that going to do for me?
Now ladies and hairdressers alike, I am apealing to you for some advice for a really good blow dryer. I have really thick long hair so I want something durable, quiet and with a long warranty.
I have been reading various reviews for other hairdryers, but would really like to hear from someone who has used their product for over a year. Whad’ya say? Can you help?
