Calista Tools 2-in-1 Home Salon Hair Dryer w/ Fusion Heat
I wish I could send it back
Unfortunately, I ordered and received this dryer just before an extended vacation trip, so I put the unopened box in my bathroom and ran out the door. I just opened the box and tried the dryer, and I'll be donating it to the VietNam Veterans.
The cool shot button, which I need, does not lock. It also doesn't change the temperature of the air coming out of the dryer. The dryer blows cool air most of the time no matter what you have the dryer set to, but it is possible, if you fiddle with the settings long enough, to get hot air. Unfortunately, the way the attachments are made the concentrator only points straight up - nice if you have long hair, I guess, but since mine is quite short it means I have to hold it like a regular dryer to use the concentrator. For me, this was a very expensive mistake.
I'm lousy at blow drying my hair, so I tried this. No problem with the temperature but I can do a better job with my T3 and Chaz Dean's brushes. At this point I sometimes let my hair dry naturally with mousse, it's curly. And I set my hair on rollers and sit under a hair dryer for an hour. I am a Wen girl and I love the seasonals and the lavender cleansing conditioners
Not that convenient
I've had rotator cuff surgery on both my shoulders over the past 3 yrs. and was excited to get the "hands free" dryer. (It's been 6 mos. since the last surgery.) It just didn't get my hair dry very quickly on the "hands free" set up. Holding it and drying the hair, it worked fine; but I found it much heavier than the dryer I currently own. So back it goes. :( Disappointed.
This gives my hair much more volume and bounce. This is the best hair dryer ever! Thanks QVC!!!
Was really looking forward to using this dryer. It had only one temp setting: cold. All three temperature settings were exactly the same as the cold shot button. Clearly defective but a consistent pattern with this 'state of the art' dryer.
heater stopped working
I have have this blow dryer less then 4 months and the heater stopped working. Now it only will blow cold air. I am not happy with this at all. I could of bought a much cheaper blow dryer and had it last longer then is.
Gives Me More Volume
Didn't know if I'd like this but I love it. Wasn't going to use the hands free stand, but it works pretty cool if you're sitting down. What I love best is that it gives my thin, fine hair more volume! It also takes less time. Great product.
Not so great
I ordered this a few weeks ago and returned it . I thought this would be awesome..finally would have my hands free to blow out my hair ..NOT the hands free part is horrible barely any air pressure and it's more of a pain then the hand held dryer ..maybe if the nose moved or was adjustable or maybe if you have curlers in and drying hair to set but still it's just not what I thought ..needs more air pressure for hand free model BUT with that said the hands held part is awesome blow dryer .. And before I returned it I went and bought a $35 hair dryer Infiniti Pro conair and honestly this $30 dryer was just as good I got great shine fast fast dry time and the $30 dryer came with diffuser and a concentrator .but that is just my opinion I hope it helps . I would recommend this to maybe a older woman with short hair who might have arthritis or something this might be good then but it would take an hour to dry your medium / long hair
Converted Doubter - this thing is GREAT!
Dries your hair fast without making it feel dry.
Cold shot button - you don't have to hold it down, just click it on and off! Genius
Removable handle (although I keep my handle on it all the time)
THE STAND AND DIFFUSER - FIVE STARS
Easy to clean the "lint" from the screens
Switching heads during your styling - they are hot! But that is the only bad thing.
So, I have been air-drying my long hair for the last 15 years because dryers and curling irons had fried it. My son is a hair stylist, so I asked him, why would anyone pay this much money for a blow dryer? You can go to the drug store and get one for $20. And he explained the difference - this dryer gets hotter, but because it pushes so much air through, it doesn't get your hair hot enough to damage it. So it is enough heat to get your hair really dry, with enough air to do it properly. Then he explained why drying your hair is actually better for your hair - it closes the cuticle, locking in the WEN goodness.
So, I got this. And have been blow away, pun intended. I can even get my dog (who has a LOT of hair) dry in about 30 minutes. I love the stand, with my long hair I can sit backwards and brush it without doing any weird gymnastics. And my hair looks great! I get comments even after I have slept on it!
Bottom line - it is worth the money.
3 months and it stopped working and smells like it's burning up. I have thin short hair so it's not like I over heated or over used it.
Best Dryer Ever!
Never have written a review on QVC.com but loved this product so much I felt compelled to write a review. Previously owned a T3 purchased for QVC & I found the warmer settings for the T3 were much too hot for my hair & scalp. I have very, very curly, very think hair in a longer reverse bob style which is chemically straightened & highlighted. This dryer makes it very easy, very quick to blow out my hair with no frizz. It is also very light weight to hold if you don't choose to use the hands free option which is another great feature of this dryer! I also own the Calista hot rollers that I will use after for the days when I don't want straight hair but much bigger wave/curl than my natural hair. The rollers are another great product, adds shine & bounce to hair & does not dry it out. I'm now always receiving compliments on my hair. Thank you Calista for such great products!
All I can say is this dryer is awesome!!! I am sick of standing there for twenty minutes to blow dry my shoulder length thin hair. It is ridiculous. I decided to give this blow dryer a shot once I heard how healthy and powerful it was and happy I am! I work long hours as a nurse everyday and just do not have much time to spend on my hair. This was a dream come true. It cut my dry time in half and with the hands free feature I was able to give my arms a quick rest and even apply some makeup. It also gave me volume. Yes i said volume! What dryer can honestly do that! Super Cool and Super Modern. Love it! Thanks Calista!!!
