Garage/yard/rummage sales are great places to get hard top hair dryers on the cheap. A lot of people who used to do roller sets have finally decided that's never going to happen again.
They are easier on your hair than using a blowdryer with a diffuser, as long as you use them on low heat.
They're also great for doing deep treatments.
It's also a nice way, as you noticed, to get some me time.
