Hair Answers: Best Blow Dryer

Q by Maggie: Which is a better hairdryer: Chi or Wigo? Mo is in the market and I find that I like both.  We need professional input! And does the Ion thing really mean anything?

A by Reagan: Great question coming from a great friend (awww). Ok, to start off, I am not personally very familiar with Wigo. It is one of those knock-off proffessional brands. Like Babyliss is a knock-off of T3, Wigo is a knock off of Chi. I would go with a Chi. Even though I have never used a Chi blow dryer myself, I have friend stylists who have. You would probably be ok using either, since (unlike me) you wont likely be running your blow dryer for up to 8 hours a day. I can burn through a motor pretty quickly. For me, my two favorite blow dryers are FHI and the Twin Turbo. Jake and I call it the Twin TurBLOW, get it? Also, I like the twin turbo because the names of their dryers are like Turbo Power Mega 4000 (Literally). That probably turns people off because you might be like “I’d like to buy a blow dryer, not a super soaker.”, but the name doesn’t take away the fact that it is an amazing tool. In a long round about way, you’d probably be ok with a “knock off”, but I would still go with the more expensive, hotter, more powerful and glamorous blow dryer. In my experience with blow dryers, more money almost always means better. EXCEPT FOR T3. Some people swear by T3, but for me, it is just not enough power. It is the hottest blow dryer (and lightweight) I have ever used, but like I said, the air flow is just too wimpy. That was way more of an answer than you asked for, my dear mags. Sorry.

Ionic. Ionic is no balogna. The Ions break up the water molecules in your hair so it dries faster and smoother with less damage. Period. Can’t argue with Ions, right? I wouldn’t want to.

I almost forgot! A nozzle on your blow dryer is vital! I never leave home without it!

PS I am soooo behind on this blog. I think I have a hundred questions to answer. Be patient, because I looooove this blog so much and I want to keep it up, it is just hard to get to for some reason. I have some big ideas for this baby. Just you wait my little hairies!

    When I worked for Cosmoprof for a brief 3 months they had these ionic blow dryers by Bio Ionic that were AMAZING. It’s true that I don’t dry for 8 hours a day, but I have a butt load of hair, like those huge pony tails can barely wrap around my hair twice, and it’s like halfway down my back. With a regular blow dryer it easily takes me 30 minutes. I used the Bio Ionic one (which is way light and way quiet) it took like 8 minutes.

    I totally agree with the above comment. It’s for your crowning glory after all. Sometimes you got to shell out some bucks to get not only the best result but also the safest to use.

    They say the CHI turbo hair dryers gives off ions. And ions are suppose to make your hair shinier and more brilliant. Quite a promise right? On the other hand the WIGO Tourmaline Ionic dryers offers the same ionic technology. Only, the prices of the two are far from each other. WIGO is cheaper. I think it’s only $ 79. While CHI is at around $180.

    I realize this is an older post, but I jumped over here after reading Jake’s guest post re. Wired’s review of hair dryers.

    I’m a non-professional, but I love the Babyliss Pro TT. (Babyliss is the professional line from Conair, I think.) It’s a Chi “knockoff,” but cost about $100 vs. $200 for the Chi and comes with a 5-year warranty.

    The good & the bad? Bad: Mine has broken 3 times. Good: Babyliss has replaced it 3 times! (Just got a new on in the mail yesterday.) While mine was broken I borrowed a friend’s hairdryer and was amazed at a) how much heavier it was vs. the Pro TT and b) what a lousy job it did drying my hair.

    I used Chi and it lasted about a year. I bought a Wigo after that and it lasted almost 3 years, and still works great. They both give you the same results and are comparably priced. I recommend the Wigo. Wigo flat iron a good and reliable. Tested and proven.

    I bought the FHI after reading Reagan’s recommendation and doing some of my own research and it’s *amazing.* I was using a plain jane conair and this FHI has changed my life. Not too heavy, low hum motor, cut my drying time in half, leaves my hair sleek and shiny, buttons well placed, etc. Reagan and I are not the only ones who love it; check out the reviews on amazon:
