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.
