Default Conair Curl Fusion Ionic Dryer: Anyone Tried?

Has anyone tried the curl fusion ionic dryer that is in the ad to the right?

I am thinking about buying one, but wanted some feedback.

Thanks!

I have nto tried it but the fact it does not have a bowl type diffuser concerns me. I like being able to 'plop' my hair in my diffuser and let it sit in there while I am diffusing. Another company had one similar to this but without the fingers and it didnt work well at all for me. Just blew my hair around even though it was not supposed to.

I got mine from ULTA. It is a Conair dryer, so I am sure that all of the major dept. stores will have it..ie Walmart, Target etc...

I like it On high, the air flow is a little strong for my fine hair, but on the low setting, it is perfect. It handles much better than my normal hair w/ a diffuser - it's less bulky.

I saw this at my local Walgreens, too. I'm not sure if this will do anything more than a traditional diffuser, but the shape might be easier to work with rather than a big ole diffuser stuck on the end of a dryer.

bump....

i bought this dryer today at the store for $24.99 sort of on impulse.

and i am glad that i did. i used it on the high setting. i currently have short hair. the high setting only slightly blew the longer pieces, but did not cause any frizz anywhere on my head.

i only dried enough to remove the dripping.

i give it a or .

Edited for clarity.

I bought this dryer about 3 weeks ago when my other one started to die. I was worried since I hadn't seen any posts about it but I LOVE IT! I use the lower setting which is very warm but not hot and I love the "volume" attachment which I just leave on. Kinda like the bowl diffusers without the bowl.

I bought mine at Fred Meyer, kinda like a grocery store mixed with a Target but I think they are local to the West Coast.

I just bought this last week. I love it. I'm really used to the bowl type diffuser, so this took a little bit of adjusting, but I like it so much better. I leave the volume attachment on too. I use the high setting and get no frizz.

Windflower, I am SOOOOOO glad you bumped this thread. After reading it I happened to be in Walgreens, and bought this dryer since this thread had caught my attention.

WOW! I absolutely *LOVE* it!!!! There is no such thing as 2nd day hair in my world, and I just do not have time to air dry most mornings. This dryer totally and completely outperforms my other (much more expensive!) dryer and diffuser system.

I am beyond thrilled with this purchase!!

I LOVE this dryer! I saw it at WalGreens a few weeks ago and picked it up. I figured for only $25, it was worth taking a chance on. I haven't owned a blowdryer in years because even with a diffuser, it seemed like my hair always turned into a giant ball of fluff.

This thing dries my hair pretty quickly, doesn't ruin my curls and doesn't make my hair any more frizzy than air drying does. Now I don't have to walk around with a wet head for hours and worry about how my hair will end up looking by the time it dries completely.
