Conair High Torque Folding Handle Cord-reel Dryer Review

By Thursday, January 12, 2012 , ,

Featuring Tourmaline Ceramic technology that helps promote shiny, healthy hair, 3 heat/2 speed settings for precision styling and a cool shot for locking the style, this 1875-watt dryer is the perfect blend of power and versatility. Retractable cord retracts into the handle with the touch of a button. Folds conveniently for easy storage and dual voltage makes it perfect for travel.
I was in desperate need of a new hair dryer, my old one is more than 11 years old and really was not cutting it. Now that it is winter when I definitely can not go out with wet or even damp hair, I thought now was the time.

I debated getting a high end one like a T3 or a GHD but since I don't use a hair dryer as much as I should and I have heard good things about lower end Tourmaline driers I thought I would search out one at a lower price point.

Two features I made a must have were a retractible cord and a folding handle. I found this in this model.

Here is the spec sheet on the product:
  • 1875 watts
  • High Torque motor flows air through at higher velocity, drying hair faster than most dryers
  • Tourmaline Ceramic technology for shinier, healthier, more manageable hair
  • 3 heat / 2 speed settings
  • Cool shot
  • Concentrator
  • Diffuser
  • Retractable line cord with push-button control
  • Folding handle for convenient storage/travel
  • Dual voltage
  • 2 year limited warranty
So far I have only used it a few times but I must say it works much faster than my old one, and leaves my hair much softer and less tangled (something I hate about driers, so I am really happy).

Another thing that is great is the heat and power settings are seperate. No more low meaning medium or high meaning hot. You can turn it to medium speed and hot heat or medium heat with high power or heck cool with high power. So great!

The cord retracting makes storing easier and so does the folding handle.

  • Folding handle
  • Retractible cord
  • Tourmaline for less friz and faster drying
  • Dual voltage
  • Concintrator
  • Fiffuser
  • Cool shot
  • Multiple settings
  • Not expensive
  • None
I am loving this drier, my hair is dried faster, with less frizz and in faster time. Plus it stores neater without having a cord to get tangled and in the way.
