Hot Tools Tourmaline IONIC 1875 Watt Rollaround Hair Dryer HT1059
Hot Tools Tourmaline IONIC 1875 Watt Rollaround Dryer with Pro-Moisture System Model 1059 Pro-Moisture System with tourmaline and ionic nano technologies changes dryings effect on hair, transforming heat and airflow into a moisture-enhancing spa treatment! Creates healthy, shiny, beautiful hair Tourmaline nano particles naturally generate far-infrared energy when heated. This penetrating form of heat passes through the hair cuticle, going directly to the cortex to dry it first. The cuticle is not over-dried and resists brittleness and cracking, helping hair maintain its shine and softness. Tourmaline also helps cleanse hair of odors and impurities Patented direct ION TECHNOLOGY is an active ion emission system. Hundreds of millions of negatively charged nano ions are created by an electronic component inside the dryer and deposited directly onto wet hair. The ions separate water into smaller droplets which are easier for hair to absorb, increasing its moisture content and reducing frizz. Tourmaline, a natural source of ions, enhances ion output

Works great to bring out curls and waves with no frizzJan 02, 2011
I've only had this dryer for a little over a week, so I will be sure to update my review once I've had it a bit longer. For now I just want to say that I love this device! It makes drying your hair so easy, and it makes for frizz-free hair.
I bought this dryer since I've recently started coaxing out the waves and curls in my hair. Using a diffuser on the end of my blowdryer has helped bring out the curl, but I get impatient with drying, and end up moving the blowdryer around too much, which leads to frizz. Based on research I did online, I learned that dryers like this Hot Tools one are great for curly/wavy hair, and I definitely agree! Using the same products and techniques before drying, I've found that using this Hot Tools dryer leaves me with zero frizz and lovely curls/waves.
It is extremely easy to set this up for the first time (it took me less than five minutes), and, once it's set up, is very easy to maneuver and adjust so that it is positioned exactly how and where you want it to be. If it's not exactly where I want it to be while I'm drying, I can easily turn around while sitting on my stool and adjust it so that it is right where I want it to be.
One reviewer mentioned that you could do makeup while using this, and I had been hoping to do the same so I could save time with my morning routine. I've found that I can apply my foundation, blush, etc. while under this dryer, but because I have to get in close to my makeup mirror to do my eye makeup, I can't sit under the dryer while doing my eyes. I usually set it up, though, at my vanity and check email or do work on my laptop while my hair is drying. It's great for multitasking!
It also works great for deep conditioning treatments that require the use of heat.
I almost didn't purchase this since some of the reviews suggested that the top helmet wasn't too sturdy and had a tendency to break off. I had also been worried about it being unstable, but have found neither of these areas to be a problem. The helmet portion is securely attached, and when I wheel it around or move it to the spare bathroom where I store it, I just make sure that I support the helmet portion so that it won't snap off. It seems like it is really secure, though.
On one side of the helmet/hood portion is the phrase "Purple people heater," which cracks me up each time I use it.
All in all, I'm really glad I got this! As mentioned above, I will be sure to update my review once I see how this holds up with more use, but so far it's fantastic!
UPDATE ON 5/13/11: I've had this dryer for a little over four months, and continue to love it. It works really well, is sturdy, and makes multi-tasking while drying my hair so simple. I really recommend it!
UPDATE ON 7/13/11: This is still working great, with no problems at all! I also wanted to add that I recently had my hair cut by a curly hair specialist who does Deva Cuts, and she said that hard-hat dryers like this one are the best thing to use for curly and wavy hair types.
UPDATE ON 11/1/11: I've had this dryer now for about ten months, and it's still going strong. It works perfectly, and is still sturdy and easy to use.
UPDATE ON 7-27-13: This dryer is still going strong, and I love it for deep conditioning treatments. However, my hair is now mid-back, and it's too long to fit under this. That being said, this still works great for drying, and has held up really well.

Poor DesignSep 14, 2008
By Brian Cummings
Right after assembling this dryer, the small plactic part that holds the dryer head to the base snapped. This plastic post, which is weakened by the holes drilled through it for the three attachment rivets, is poorly designed and too weak to handle the torque created by the weight of the dry head. This attachment point is critical in this type of dryer, and should be strong.

Worthless WarrantyAug 04, 2010
By Debbie L. Taylor
I purchased this dryer the end of October 2009. It worked fine for 4 months when the high heat setting quit. Finally after another 2 months of drying my hair on "low" I returned it to Helen of Troy at the cost of $20. Within a few weeks I received a standard form letter from Helen of Troy saying the product was on back order, and "if available" it could be replaced with a comparable unit; (course there isn't such an item so that option was out)...or I could request a refund. To purchase another unit, at a higher price and pay shipping for the 3rd time ruled out requesting a refund. So I'm still waiting....I called Helen of Troy again, this makes the 6th time in 3 months and they still can't give me an expected delivery date, just that they have placed an order....I would say that Helen of Troy is not a reputable company, not at all consumer orientated and diffidently not a company that cares about customer satisfaction.....Beware if you purchase this product or any other for that matter that is under the parent company Helen of Troy.

Works great but I'm on my second oneJan 20, 2009
By S. Steele
I have natural 3c/4a hair that takes a long time to dry...but this dryer really helps to speed up the process. This hairdryer is a really great solution if you are like me and hate those old school hair dryers that you have to put on the table... I could never get the right chair height to sit under it. This hair dryer is really simple to put together... and then you can watch a movie with subtitles or surf the internet while it works...
The one problem that I had with my first one is that I was a little careless and moved it by picking it up and not supporting the head... it snapped off and I had to get another one... so just be careful and know that the best way to move this around is by rolling it...
Happy hair drying!!!

Buy this DryerSep 13, 2007
By M. Johnson
I love this dryer! It has a higher wattage than the other brands of similar dryers, and it looks better too!
It is not only beautiful but works FAST! I got it to dry my hair in the morning before work, while I put on my make up. I hate standing with a blow dryer!!! I just pin my hair up with a few big clips and sit under this dryer and by the time my make up is done, my hair is dry.
I do still blow dry my bangs first to keep them smooth, but the rest dries in a natural wave due to the gentle air flow from the dryer.
It gets really hot, but you can also set it to a lower temp if you want. But I like it hot so my hair dries fast.
I also like the fact it is on wheels and easy to roll around and get out of the way. My old drier was the type that sits on a desk and it was a hassle to get to the correct height, this one is easy to move up and down.
