    I have a pretty powerfull hair dryer but after a few years they all tend to run a bit slower. Also, because it is an electrical machine that is used close with water i am always extra carefull to buy new hairdryers every 4-5 years for safety reasons. I really liked the BabylissPro one… I want all the extras please!! I guess it is on the expensive end.

      Hi Evita. At the moment the Babyliss PRO pack is selling at $149.95. Amazon’s prices always seem to go up and down constantly though, so tomorrow it could be a different price. Just have to check. The cheapest hair dryer on the list above is last one, the Xtava. It’s under $50 at the moment.
