The CHI dryer is pretty awesome! I never heard of it till my friend told me about it and how amazing it is so I used some coupons and bought it at a nice price. First of all it gets very HOT very fast! It is also very quiet. I am able to straighten my hair quickly without even having to use a flat iron and when I want I can use the diffuser to keep my hair curly. I would recommend this dryer, it is a great buy!
