Consumer Reports Rates Hair Dryers & Irons

Infiniti Nano Silver

Revlon Perfect Heat Ceramic

"We lab-tested 10 hair dryers (also called blow dryers) and found that you can spend up to $200 for the quietest model—or spend $20 for our Best Buy and use all that extra money to buy some ear plugs. For consumers itching to tame curls, we also tested nine straightening irons. The best performer was the Infiniti Nano Silver by Conair SS9 for $100—but if that’s more than you want to spend, the Revlon Perfect Heat Ceramic RVST2001C ($30) offers an excellent value, plus it’s light and travels well."

I recently bought the karmin g3 straightener and its tourmaline-ceramic plates are extremely good, they are fast and leave the hair pin-straight!
