  • Overview
  • The Cricket utilizes Tourmaline technology to dry your hair quickly and keep it healthy. Plus, with 2 heat/speed settings and a cold shot, you can tailor your blow-drying routine to your needs!

    How does Tourmaline dry my hair faster? Tourmaline maximizes the negative ion output and infrared heat generated delivering more conditioned, super shiny, frizz-free hair. Ions are a naturally occurring phenomenon in nature, characterized by a neutral atom becoming charged either positively or negatively. When a negative ion comes into contact with a water molecule, it atomizes (breaks up) the water molecule allowing the smaller droplets to penetrate the outer layer of the hair shaft to infuse hair with moisture and shine. This process also helps to eliminate static electricity build up in the hair during styling.

    This blow dryer is light weight and easy to handle. I wanted to get the sam results from styling that I get at the salon so I asked my hair dresser what brand she used. That was about eight years ago. That model was long lasting and lived up to my expectations. When it finally gave out, I didn't want to mess with a good thing so I went on line to find the same. This website offered several models in the 'Cricket' line.I chose this one wich is an updated version of the one I bought originally. The Tourmaline Ionic cuts down on drying time and damage to the hair. So many good qualities, what's not to love?

    Ionic hairdryers are harmful to your skin, if your skin behind your ears get red,inflamed, oozing, STOP using, its from your ionic hairdryer. There should be warnings on them

  • Great Buy! 5 Star Rating
    i use this hair dryer everyday and it doesnt dry my hair out. my hair is also very thick and cuts drying time in half compared to most dryers that i have used in the past. definitely worth what you get for the price....

  • One Of The Best 5 Star Rating
    i have 2 girls ALL with very, very, very long hair. this is one of the best dryers we have bought. especially since all the girls agree -- that is a big plus.i have bought many other expensive dryers that lasted 5 to 6 months if i was lucky. this is going on a year. plus i use it and my husband everyday. it leaves your hair so smooth and it never looks dried out even in the summer with the pool and ocean.

    This hairdryer is not bad, but it in no way competes with the hairdryers in this price range. The only advantage to this hairdryer is the design of the buttons.
