  1. I bought the T3 after reading your review. Mine had just died and I needed another one. I thought the T3 was too expensive and possibly not worth it. I mean it JUST blows out air, right?… Since then I also bought their straightener and curler. I love them all and thin they’re absolutely worth the price.

      How much is the straightener? Is it better than CHI?

      • I don’t remember exactly how much it was. I think around 150.
        I have also an old CHI and I think the T3 is better, but it may be because my CHI is about 7 years old, I’m not sure how it would compare to a newer one.

    T3! A little pricey, but absolutely worth it! I love it!

  3. jade

    Mine is by ETI and I love love it!!

    I hate to say it but the Harry Josh dryer is pretty awesome.

    Ditto on the T3. I picked up an old one (the original Featherweight) at a discount store and I love it. Takes me 5-6 minutes to dry my hair completely instead of 10-15.

    I’ve had many over the years, and I haven’t found one to be any better than another. I simply allow my hair to dry naturally, and if I’m having an occasional bad hair day, I simply grab a scrunchy, or some other updo. I haven’t had an issue with split-ends in years, and I only have to go in for trims 3-4 times a year.

    The best hair dryer I have ever used is Parlux 3800 ionic hair dryer. 😉

    T3 Featherweight. Your review convinced me to try one and it literally changed my life. I was never able to dry my hair before. It’s thick and heavy and took over 45 minutes to even be remotely dry with a dryer. The first time I used a Featherweight my hair was dry in under 10 minutes. I was practically in shock. I was really worried when I bought it, but I have zero regrets.

      So glad it was life-changing for you, too, Reese! This was exactly me – it would take FOREVERRRR and so I’d hate doing it, now it’s so fast.

  9. I always wanted to try the T3 but you can’t use a comb attachment with it. And I use a comb attachment in lieu of a flat iron to straighten my hair. So I’m using a Hot Tools blow dryer. It works just fine I’ve had it for a few years now so I’ve gotten my moneys worth.

    I just bought a Ultra CHI hairdryer after years of vowing I’d never pay “that much” for a hairdryer when I could get them for less than $25. I have only had this thing for 3 weeks now, but I am so impressed already. I had no idea there was such a difference in a pro hairdryer than my budget Conair/Revlon/Vidal Sassoon/ whatever it was I was using blow dryers. My hair takes less time to dry, it doesn’t get static cling once it’s dry, the flow is much more directional and I can control it and keep it focused where I want it. Oh and it’s Sooo much quieter than any other I’ve ever used. It still makes some sound but you can actually hold a conversation while using this. This has a really long heavy duty power cord too which is always nice. I was surprised at how lightweight this is too. I had no idea what I was missing. It has features like EMF and ION but I am not certain how those benefit my hair. This is actually the same hairdryer that my hair stylist uses.

    I’m another T3 convert, I bought the featherweight after your review earlier this year. Absolutely no regrets, my hair dries so quickly, looks great without needing to be flat ironed afterward.. And it doesn’t hurt that the dryer itself is so pretty looking (I got the pink one).

    • So thrilled that you love it as much as I do, Vicki!

      I get really nervous about highly recommending more $$$ items, so it’s such a relief when people love them!
