What Hair Type Is This Dryer Best Suitable For?

If you have heavily damaged hair, I would not recommend the InStyler Turbo Blu Ionic unless you use a good heat protectant. As this dryer tends to get really hot due to the ceramic heating element and will just add to the already damaged hair. If you want to learn more about the different types of materials used in the elements, you can do so here.

It’s a great product for normal hair of any length since the airflow can be adjusted for a quick dry. Those of you ladies with fine, thin hair, don’t shy away from this product. You can adjust the temperature with ease and still have a powerful airflow to dry your hair quickly.

You will get a diffuser and a concentrator.

If you have curly hair, use the diffuser to dry your hair and use a medium temperature. As the air comes out of the dryer it is diffused instead of coming out in a blast of air, spreading it softly through the hair. It allows your hair to dry in its natural shape. Without the diffuser, the blast of air will blow your natural curls out of shape and you end up with frizz.

The concentrator gives you the ability to direct the flow of air to a certain part of the hair for pinpoint styling. If you are trying to straighten the hair while drying, you will concentrate on one section of hair at a time working with your brush.

Most customers were happy with the way this blow dryer delivered on its promises. The drying time was diffidently 2x faster than other dryers of the same size and the ion technology also took care of the frizzies. One customer thought that it was noisier than her old dryer but wasn’t put off by the noise because it dried her hair so fast.

Another customer complained about excessive heat on her fine, thin hair. This is a case of not reading the owner’s manual on how to control the heat button for the unit. Learning to use any appliance the right way is the customers responsibility.
