Oh please do a review. I almost bought this one. I saw it at Sally's. Ended up buying the tabletop Ion hardbonnet instead but it's still in the box - I can exchange it!

The Conair looks exactly like the Babyliss Pro Ionic dryer and I think they are even made by the same company, but the Conair doesn't say Ionic anywhere.

Also is it tall enough to sit in a chair and get your head under?

Playing with my hair is a hobby. Fluffy, fine natural 4a. Goal= Healthy, beautiful hair that retains its length.
Hear that crash? It's me falling off the CG wagon.
well it says adjustable height. ideally, i could sit on my sofa and have this one behind me. the table top ones just don't work because i'm tall and all my tables are too short or too tall so i end up never using it. i'm determined to do more with my hair (styling) and to do the aphogee so i felt like i needed a better dryer. since i decided not to get a weave i figured this was a "justifiable expense"

When my current tabletop hooded dryer goes out, I'll have to look into this one. After you use it, please let us know:
How hard / easy it is to adjust the height... How long is the cord... Where do you store it when you're not using it...

A Tip for the tabletop dryers: Sit it behind your chair on top of your ironing board. Between adjusting the height of the ironing board and adjusting the dryer, You'll come up with the right height for your chair eventually...
mostly coarse texture, normal porosity... I think?

does it work well ? my mom stole my other one but it wasnt on wheels. does it lower in height? thats an inexpensive one too compared to another one i saw. i might buy it one day.

natashamck i never thought about using my dryer on an ironing board. i might do that this weekend with my existing dryer.

CoaCoaBean08 i haven't received it yet. i bought it last night on line but i'll be using it soon. i think you can adjust the height. there was just one review on sally's but it was a good one.

on a funny note, my little dog is extremely scared of it. he hid under the bed when i was putting it together. now i keep it in my office until i can find a better place and he won't even come in there. he just looks at it from the door and stays as far away as possible.

I own a rolling hooded dryer (different brand), and I absolutely love it. I normally wear my hair in coilsets and I use this dryer to set my hairstyle.
What exactly will you be using this for? I already have a steamer, which I use for DT's and a handheld dryer which I use for diffusing and etc. I guess if you were doing styles that would require for you to set your hair I guess it would be worth it. I think the miss jessie's site promotes sitting under the dryer and shingling and etc. I just am used to letting my hair air dry. Maybe in the wintertime this would be useful.

are you still loving your hair dryer? thinking about using a dryer more for styling vs air drying. how often are you using it?
LOIS (OS); cottony, TYPE 4 hair, fine/med strands; no cones bcz my hair hates them; last relaxer '98; now low porosity, ignores most natural hair rules; BC #8

faves: suave, v05 shampoo, conditioner (my own), raw shea butter, castor oil, peanut oil, aloe juice
i use it for styling when drying my hair makes more sense than to air dry. i use it once a week to 10 days. i don't dry to a crisp but to take the moisture out so about 20-30 mines. works nice and my hair looks more like it's professionally done.

Im not allowed to leave the house with my hair wet. is it feasible to do daily (or every other day) washngo's and still use the dryer. how long do you have to sit. and which works better, the hooded dryer or a diffuser?



oil:coconut oil and olive oil
everything else: in need of suggestions!
