A very good hair dryer

By 

from USA

Comments about T3 Tourmaline Professional Featherweight:

I never really knew how much an important hair dryer was in styling your hair. I always thought it was more about the flat irons and curling irons. Then one day my hair dresser suggested that I use a higher quality hair dryer. My friend worked at a salon supplier and was able to get me the T3. I immediately saw the difference. I couldn't believe how quickly my hair dried. I have long hair and it was able to dry in about 10 minutes. I was surprised to see what a nice shine it had to it as well for drying that quickly. It also styled my hair nicer than my previous dryer. It was very light and easy to use. I did not have to use my flat iron and curling iron as much as well. Which was great for the quality of my hair and also saved me time. I had this hair dryer for seven years. I couldn't believe how long it lasted. I was told the more expensive T3 models work even better. I would recommend this hair dryer, it is good quality for the money.

I will never use another blow dryer again.

Comments about T3 Tourmaline Professional Featherweight:

When I first read about this brand-new blow dryer I knew I had to try it out. When I found it on sale for 50% off I jumped at the chance to purchase it. Holding the sleek white and jeweled handle, feeling how lightweight it was, I fell in love. My hair has never looked shinier or been more healthy since purchasing and using this blow dryer. I actually cringe when I have to use a different blow dryer. I do color my hair, I do use a flat iron and a curling iron and of course, I blow dry it often, all those things can damage the hair shaft. The price tag of this blow dryer is definitely high but I believe it is well worth it to maintain manageable, soft, beautiful hair.

Drying Time
I blow dry my hair about five times a week. I have that kinky hair that's not really curly but not really straight so after a shower I blow dry my hair straight and then go over it with a flat iron. I noticed the first time I used this blow dryer that it literally dried my hair in half the time. I fell deeper in love.

Settings/Features
This blow dryer came with the straightening nozzle attachment. It has a cool shot and it has a high and low setting. That's really all you need and it keeps it from getting too complicated. I do wish though that the cool shot button stayed on and you didn't have to hold the whole time you were trying to use the cool setting.

Noise Level
It is definitely one of the quieter blow dryers I have ever used.

Durability
I had my first blow dryer for about four years until one day my niece through it and broke it. Until that point it was working perfectly. I immediately bought a replacement one and that one to this day is working just as well as the first day I used it.

Awesome

By 

from Renovo, PA

Comments about T3 Tourmaline Professional Featherweight:

I love this dryer!!! Adds body and shine to my hair. It does not dry my hair out as some seem to do. I haven't seen a split end since I started using this product! Also seems to be well made to last a long time. I have had several dryers that burn out in less that a year of use. This is an A1 product!

Not quite worth the high price

By 

from Minneapolis, MN

Comments about T3 Tourmaline Professional Featherweight:

I bought the T3 Featherweight Dryer after a friend highly recommended the product line to me. She has the T3 Bespoke Labs Overnight Dryer, which is a smaller, travel-sized version, and she raved about how it took 5 minutes off her drying time in the mornings and left her hair smooth all day. I went to the store to look at the product line, and the sales person said the travel-sized version is a good product for just that- occasional use when traveling, etc. but it is not meant for daily use and wouldn't last long if used that often. So I decided to go with the Featherweight.

My hair definitely is left smoother and less frizzy than with my previous drugstore-brand hair dryer. But my hair is also left a lot more flat and completely without any volume.

One thing I was really looking forward to is the shorter drying time everyone raves about, but I don't notice any change in drying time. I have long, thick hair that takes a long time to dry, and this dryer hasn't changed that.

The thing that stands out about this dryer is the extremely high heat; There is no adjustable heat selection on this dryer, so it's always very hot. It's almost too hot; I definitely need to be constantly moving the dryer around, which is fine, but it still seems to be too much heat for my scalp. My head is always left feelilng sweaty after using the dryer, and my hair is left limp and flat. The high heat alone isn't enough to do a better job than other dyers because there isn't enough power to actually dry faster/better.

Best hairdryer I've ever used!

By 

from West Hills, CA

Comments about T3 Tourmaline Professional Featherweight:

I adore this hairdryer!  A reviewer below stated that it is heavy to her.... I don't understand that at all, this dryer is the lightest full-size dryer I've ever felt.  When you turn it on it's so quiet that you think it's barely blowing any air out and you wonder how they can possibly claim that it takes 1/3 less time to dry your hair with it... but it's true!  I have tons of fine hair, very long, with a natural wave to it that I blowdry every single day.  This dryer had made such a difference for me!  It smoothes my hair so there is much less frizz and poof, and it really does take less time to dry my hair with it.  I still get split ends if I don't get regular trims, but no more than I would with any other dryer.  The price is pretty high, but I've had mine for five years and there's no sign that it's going to quit anytime soon, so I'm ok with it.  Do make sure you clean the back vent regularly because otherwise it will overheat.

Love my hair dryer!

By 

from Torrance, CA

Comments about T3 Tourmaline Professional Featherweight:

After years of owning a few "whatever" hair dryers, I decided I needed to invest in one that would last and be effective for styling my hair.  I searched and searched online and knew I was interested in a T3 as I heard so many great things about them.  The price of it was a bit scary, however, I knew that it would be worth it.  I LOVE this hair dryer.  It really has made such a difference in my hair, as I have frizzy lightly wavy hair.  This has been amazing, and is not one of those that get too hot on my head. So happy to have finally found a tool that works for me!!

KIND OF worth the money..

By 

from Blackwood, NJ

Comments about T3 Tourmaline Professional Featherweight:

I just bout this hair bryer abotu a week ago becasue my old one broke, and I must say, this is one of the best one's i've used. It really exceeded my expectations as far as its effectiveness. I have REALLY think hair, and a lot of it, so it usually takes be about 45 mins to dry my dair. With this dryer, i can do it in 15. It leaves my hair shiny, and very soft, and does not cause split ends, like my old dryer.

However, the dryer itself is quite heavy, which is not usually a problem, unless you are olding it up for more than 5 mins at a time. the opening is also kind of narrow, which is weird.

There is also an off smell when I use it. I always think it's my hair being overheated (you know that burning hair smell when you mess up your hair???). But it never is. The smell comes from the dryer, which is disheartening, but not enough of a reason to return the dryer or anything.

It really does what it's supposed to do.

EDIT: I have used it for a couple of weeks now and i found 1 real negative: Unless you use the highest speed setting, it doesn't get very hot. The dryer blows colder air with a lower speed setting, which is kind of weird and slows down my drying a bit. I prefer a low, hotter setting, which this dryer does NOT provide.

Recommended by a frugal friend and I was sold

By 

from Maineville, OH

Comments about T3 Tourmaline Professional Featherweight:

I have thick coarse hair that needs extra care.  Blow drying can be damaging and I wanted something quick as well.  The T3 has cut my hair drying time in half.   The hair dryer is lightweight, easy to use and doesn't get hot itself but gets my hair dry quick quick quick!
