Hot Tools Ionic Blow Dryer

It was time for a new blow dryer. I have only one at a time and the one I presently have is well over 16 years old. When I relocated to Colorado, I didn’t want to travel with my blow dryer because I worried that it would break. So, I decided that I would use over a year’s worth of Ulta points and get a new one.

Here’s what I got…

These are cool features but none of them a reason I bought this particular blow dryer…

I have always been leery of claims that a blow dryer can dry hair faster. Happily, this claim is spot on. And, that makes for happy, healthy hair at The Vanity.

I purchased this at Ulta using my bonus points, so technically, it didn’t cost me anything. Regular price would have have been $30 for the dryer and $12 for the difuser.

Do you have a favorite blow dryer? Do you have one that has special technology to dry your hair faster?
