travel diffuser--do they exist???

Dear All--I have been looking all over the web for a travel sized hair dryer that fits or comes with a diffuser to fit in my back pack during my trek around Japan. I figure that such a tool will come in handy for all my travels. Travel dyers are everywhere but (finger) diffusers are non-existent! (It seems as though one or two products of the sort might exist in Europe, but not here). Any leads???

I've never seen one, either, and I would certainly like to! The only thing I know that works on a travel dryer is a hot sock.

I wish they'd make one too! I have one of those travel hot sock things and I didn't like it at all. It blew my hair all over too much.

I've been wondering this too!!

Has anyone tried something like this? Seems better than the hot sock to me!

I found a couple.. this on craigslist and this on ebay.. neither looks too good though.

How about those universal diffusers that "fits all dryers" like this from Amazon?

Hmm... that bag diffuser looks interesting!

I wanna take my dryer and finger diffuser on my trip next month but I won't have room in my carry-on and I'm afraid of it getting broken in my regular bag.

I've never had much luck with universal diffusers. They say they fit "most" dryers, but none of my dryers ever seem to fit in that category. :x

Bingo!
Although I don't know how big it is, and it might be a slight inconvenience that you'd have to order 2000 at a time.

I'm afraid I may have mislead you... that Remington only seems to be available in Europe, for example through this site: http://www.eleven.se/en/standard-travel-g74.html . If you're desperate I might be able to help (I live in Europe after all) by ordering it and then sending it across the Atlantic, just let me know!

Finding a travel diffuser has been the BANE of my existance for a LONG TIME. As I explained to the beauty shop I frequent, it seems that its the Holy Grail of hair dryers...why? Who the heck knows...I think it has to do with where the motor/heat source is and how close yer head/diffuser can get to it....I say this because when you look at portable hair dryers, the heat source is so much closer to the nossle end...hmm..

Reguardless, in my search I have found -and purchased- a couple models (i currently own 3, count em, 3!) travel hair dryers, neither which is as good as my standard, but all of which are better than the hotsock for me (might as well call the hotsock the frizz guaranter)...

The best (so far) is the Conair Ionshine 1875. It's lightweight and the bowl diffuser is kind lame, but, I can wad my hair up into it without it moving too much (or burning). About 23 bucks at Harmons beauty.

Also bought the Conair Ceramic 1875 which folds up, but is heavier in wieght and I think I smelled my hair burning (really big holes in the diffuser). Even before that incident, I thought it smelled funny. About 25 bucks at Target.

When in Barcelona this spring, I found a rinky dinky appliance store that sold a multitude of portable hair dryers with diffusers. I bought a Wahl mini for 8 Euros. It was not unlike the hair dryers attached to walls that you get at a hotel, only it had a diffuser, as it was superlight. It worked whillst in Barcelona, but i'd have to adapt it here and probably won't, as I did smell burnign hair once.

I just got back from Japan and, happily, my chosen dryer (conair ionic) worked fine (their outlets work with our stuff as long as they are only 2 pronged.

I'd love to find a travel dryer with a diffuser. My dryer takes up so much space in my bag!! The ebay link looked interesting...will have to investigate further.

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
I have the Remington dryer that a picture of has been posted of above. It's great! I've had it for a couple of years and have used it everywhere, all over the world (Europe, Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Carribean), with no problems. It comes with multiple adaptor plugs so you can use it anywhere, has a dual voltage switch, and is very light. Mine also came with a good travel bag (although this wasn't advertised), which means that it packs well and is protected during travel.

I had to search it out on the internet and have never seen it again, so am pleased that it's still available, as I always worry that if my suitcase goes missing, I won't be able to replace it!
Hairtype: 3a at sides/front, 2c at back.
I use this folding dryer with this diffuser. The diffuser is full-sized and so a bit bulky and you do have to use a little effort to get it on the nozzle, but I use this combo every weekend at my boyfriend's house and it works fine.
