    So Far, So Good
    A few weeks ago, I started my search for the 'perfect hair dryer'. I wanted a professional dryer that would cut down on dry time and frizz. I am a brunette with long, thin, and naturally wavy hair. It tends to get frizzy especially in high humidity. I got a great deal on this one so I couldn't pass it up. Using the dryer: I started with towel dried hair, added a light serum, and attached the 70mm nozzle. First, I just dried my hair using my fingers to tousle my hair until it was around 60% dry. Then, I got my round ceramic+ion brush and started drying/styling my hair. I used it with the highest heat setting and lowest speed setting. It was not significantly loud. I love that is has an AC motor. You can really tell the air is blowing powerfully and yes, it blows powerfully. I had it on the lowest speed setting and the air pressure packs a punch. One thing I noticed is that It does not get very hot. So if you're looking for high heat this most likely is not the dryer for you. My last non-professional hair dryer packed some major heat. I think less heat could be a good thing however. I did not time it exactly but after looking at some text messages I calculated that it took me about 17 minutes for my hair to be completely dry and set. I did take my time. At first, I thought the low heat factor would affect drying time. After seeing that it only took me 17 minutes on the lowest speed setting I do not think that's true. I also used the cool shot feature on the lowest heat setting to set my hair and was surprised at how cool the air blew (my last hair dryers cool shot was warm). My hair was soft and shiny with no frizz. I usually straighten after I blow dry as a finishing touch but I don't think it will be as important with this dryer. The dryer also has a heavy-duty 9 foot cord. The cord did help win me over. I love that it's 9 feet and it's not thin and flat like my last cord was (I can't stand those!) It comes with a diffuser and three different attachments (not something you usually get with dryers). The barrel of the hair dryer does not get hot. So you can hold it by the handle or by the barrel without getting burned.The weight of the dryer is 9 ounces which is half a pound. It is not heavy and I did not notice the weight as I dried my hair. It's not bulky. It's fairly quiet although I have not tested the highest speed setting yet. I also want to test it in humidity. So far, I really like it and I also like the price compared to some of the other hair dryers I was looking into. The AC motor is a plus and really improves the air pressure and sound of the dryer.
    If you're looking for something affordable and of good quality, definitely try it. You just might love it!

    Please note: I have given this hair dryer 4 stars because I have not fully 'tested' it yet. I will do a followup review. I am also thinking of doing a youtube review so please check back :)

    Great Hairdryer! Love Folica!!
    I did a ton of research on hair dryers before deciding on Babyliss Pro Nano. I chose this one bc it came with a diffuser & bc it is made in Italy. I'm tired of buying China crap that doesn't last. And I do feel the quality is superb, feels solid & not like cheap plastic.

    Overall great hair dryer- lots of power & I love the varied settings. As others have said - it is on the heavy side. I mostly use it for curly style/with diffuser but it straightens a lot faster than my old one (had a Sally's brand ceramic). Folica had the best price - when compared to amazon, eBay & department stores. Product was shipped very well - Will continue to buy from them!!

    No Flat Iron Needed
    I recently purchased this hair dryer for a few different reasons. All of the other hairdryers with high reviews are made in China. This is made in Italy and is high quality all the way. It leaves my hair soft, manageable and frizz free. I haven't needed to use my flat iron since I have made this purchase. I look forward to every day that I get to use this dryer. It is a must have!

    Babyliss
    I bought the hair dryer recently and it was pricey but I felt like it would be great so would be worth the money! I really like it and I love that it comes with several attachments. I also owned a Babyliss hair dryer before this one and it, along with my new one, has a four year warranty! There is a reason for that....they last at least four years! My other one never broke down and I just passed the four year mark but I felt like I wanted an upgrade, if I could say one negative thing about it, it is heavier than I would like. I wish Folica would put the weight of each hair dryer under the details of each one.

    Fantastic! Great For Diffusing Too!
    I had the Sedu Revolution for a few yrs and loved it, but passed it on to my daughter when her dryer died. I have grown my hair out and sometimes like to wear it curly/wavy and was looking for a new dryer as good as the Sedu, but with a diffuser. Bought this one due to the great reviews. I have carpel tunnel syndrome in my wrists and sometimes find dryers/tools heavy or aggravating to my wrists. I do not find this dryer heavy at all. I only use it on the lowest of the two heat settings and LOVE how much air it blows! The diffuser works great as well and I am extremely happy with the results. My sister was visiting and she commented on how her hair dried in half the time! I bought the beautiful blue and glad I did! Love this dryer!!!!!

    This Hair Dryer Is Great.
    The hair dryer leaves your hair feeling silky smooth. It cuts down on drying time on your hair. I used to have a Twin Turbo and glad I upgraded to the Babybliss Pro Nano.

    Really Great!
    I bought this as a replacement for the Sedu Revolution dryer that left my hair flat and frizzy. I researched for days to get a good replacement. I did not want to shell out $$ again and be disappointed.Well, I love it. I have fine, curly, color treated hair with the penchant to be frizzy if not taken care of with good tools and product. I used a bit of morrocan oil and tried this out and I was so happy. I also love that it comes with its own diffuser as I use that often for my curly hair. This dryer made my hair look so nice it almost takes away the need for a straightener! I find myself only needing to touch my locks up a bit for a quickie and if i am looking for a sleeker look then I will go over all of it with my straightener. But like I said, you almost don't have to at all. I bet if your hair is naturally straight, you will only need this hair dryer. I am very happy with this product and hope it lasts a long time. It also comes with a 4 year warranty, so that is a plus!

    Love It
    I am glad I purchased this dryer. So far so good (only had it for about 1 month now). Very powerful, cut down my drying time by 1/2, very light weight. Will recommend.
