Ion Hair Dryers are advertised to reduce static electricity, moisturize hair and to leave it in better condition, reduce frizz and dry hair much faster than other dryers. This is something that sounds too good to be true. But I love to try out new technology.
I used a new Ion Hair Dryer this week.
The dryer is lightweight, around 2 pounds, with a nice sleek shape that easily fits my hand. This is an important feature for anyone who has had sore arms from drying thick or long hair.
The 1875 watts provide plenty of power but there is more at work than the force of the air. The documentation says that the ions break down the size of the water molecules for faster drying. I believe it. My hair really did dry faster than with any other hair dryer that I have used.
The documentation also says that the breaking down of the water molecules allows for easier absorption - moisturizing the hair.
My hair is fine, naturally curly, and color treated, so it tends to frizz easily. It usually requires a hot curling iron or flat iron to smooth it.
However, after blow drying with the ion dryer, it was much less frizzy than usual. A slight touch-up with an iron was all I needed. My hair felt soft, light and fluffy.
From these results,I have to agree that there is something about the ions
Overall my use of this product was a great experience. I'm sold on it and I won't be without my ion hair dryer from now on.

Wondering what an ion is? According to dictionaries I consulted, it is an atom that has acquired a net electric charge by gaining or losing one or more electrons. Positively charged ions are called cations; negatively charged ions, anions.
