Helen of Troy Hot Shot Tools Turbo Ionic Dryer

After not using a blow dryer on my hair for several weeks I decided I wanted to use a blow dryer again and the one I had wouldn't cut it. It was old and didn't have the types of settings I wanted.

So I visited a few stores to find one that had the features I wanted - a cool setting and a cold shot. That's how I found the Helen Of Troy Hot Shot Tools Turbo Ionic Dryer. Besides the $39.99 sales price what drew me to this blow dryer is that it's an ionic dryer with tourmaline.

While I like it, I've had some issues with it. The cold shot doesn't get or stay that cold most of the time. And the cool setting will sometimes warm up after being continuously used for a while. Based on my experience I'm not convinced this is a heavy use blow dryer, but it's a good option if you're looking for a dryer with a cool setting that you don't plan on using every week.

What blow dryer do you use on your hair?

  1. That looks like the dryer I just bought. I think the one I have is slightly higher wattage but I do agree that the cold setting wasn't super cold when I tested it at Ulta. It costs a little more but came with a free one inch barreled Hot Tools curling iron as some promotion they were running. Since the dryer was regularly 85 bucks but only sale for 70 and the curling iron was normally 53 but free it felt like a great deal even though I rarely curl my hair with heat. How did the comb attachment hold up?

    1. The comb attachment is ok. It sometimes falls off when I use it. I think that could be due to my thick hair. Have you tried the curling iron?
