Do not recommend

I do not recommend the purchase of this product. It does dry your hair,however, the attachment does not lock in place and makes it very frustrating and awkward to use.
Helps with the frizzies
Posted Sun, Sep 16th, 2012 by Stitches
I've had my share of hair dryers in my life time, so I confess I was relieved when my old one died. I knew exactly what I wanted: 1. Ionic technology because it helps reduce my frizzies.
2. At least 3 heat settings. Tired of warm and TOO HOT.
3. Power. My hair is thick and it takes some air velocity to dry it. Most dryers are pretty good, but the "Turbo Setting" does increase it. It's not wind tunnel awesome, but it's helpful.
This hair dryer met those requirements. As noted by several other reviewers, it is a bit larger and heavier than most other hand held hair dryers. If that is not an issue for you, I think you will like it.
Attention All Cooks

I was tired of cooking my hair so I bought this product after reading the reviews on Amazon from a local chain store and paid more than I would have had I gotten it here. I was skeptical. After all, this would be replacing my old furnace of a blow dryer. I have thick, abundant, coarse, wavy, frizz-prone hair once aptly referred to by a so-called admirer as "restless" and intense heat seemed the only solution. This new machine does not blow very hot but it has become clear that a blow torch is not necessary to produce good results. I repeat what I said before, without blowdrying these locks would make the Bride of Frankenstein's do look good. I suspect it's the force of the airflow that wicks the water off the hair much in the same way those commercial hand blowers get the job done in public restrooms--only more quickly. The bonuses are soft, shiny hair with ends that don't look fried and best of all the return of the volume that can get so easily lost when you dry the hair under intense heat--no more flat head for me. I cut the drying time by about fifteen minutes which makes a big difference. There will also be fewer "hat" days as I won't have to abstain to protect my hair from constant drying. I found this model comparatively lightweight but still on the noisy side--of course, that was at maximum setting. I think I'll get another and put it away "just in case" but I'll go through Amazon when I do as the price was about 25% lower. You may have to adjust the way you style your hair as you dry it due to the increased force of the air generated, but for anyone capable of drying their own hair that shouldn't prove too difficult. Try this one; I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.
Just what I was looking for

This Remington dryer is just what I was looking for. It's got all of the features....ceramic, tourmaline and ionic. Plus the two fan feature is a bonus. The fact that it's red, I'm in love. Most importantly it's very gently on my curly hair. It's easy to use and dries perfectly without drying the hair out.
If I had to give it a "room for improvement" rating, i'd say that it's a little larger than the average dryer. The thing is it doesn't bother me. The fact that it's a little bigger to me just means it's sturdier. I have nothing bad to really say about this one. It's a bargain really.
Ok but could be stronger

I thought it would be stronger. I even leave turbo option on all of the time, but my older, cheaper hairdryer definitely dried quicker. I do like the attachments though (diffuser, concentrator). It is heavier like I have read before buying, and the cord must be shorter because it gets pulled out of the wall by accicent at least once with every use. Unfortunately, I wouldn't recommend.

I don't use a hair dryer often, but when I do, I want a good one. This fits the bill. It's not overly complicated, but it works very well. The setting are basic, but that suits me fine. Powerful and quick to dry my hair - perfect for a great blow-out.
Works as advertised

It's nice to find a home appliance that actually works as advertised. This Remington dryer does that and more.
It's very well made. It's easy to operate. And it dries hair very fast. We've had this for a couple of months and it's held up quite well with almost daily use from someone in the household. Good value for the price, too!
It works and it lasts
Posted Tue, May 15th, 2012 by slaphappy
My hair is very thick and curly but I've learned that with some good 100% argan oil and a big HUGE round brush or paddle brush, I can get my hair dry in about 15-20 min IF I have a good dryer. This fits the bill and it gives you a workout to boot.
I've never cared if my dryers are "quiet," because how quiet can a blow dryer really be? The weight is a factor but if I can finish in 15-20 min, I will put up with it.
Remington products last, too, in my experience and often outlast much pricier items. With this dryer, I was able to dry my shoulder length super curly hair in 17 min. Not too bad.
But, is it better than other 1875 Watt dryers? I don't think it's really any different...but it does work pretty well.
Pretty good hairdryer
Posted Wed, Apr 25th, 2012 by TropicalMinnesota
I must admit that, although I like this dryer, I don't see a big difference between it and the other Turbo driers I have used. The weight is slightly heavier than my old one, but then again my arms can use the workout. The Turbo setting is a little too strong when trying to style my hair, but it is great when I just want to dry it quickly. This is a good dryer that is not too expensive.

I try not to use too much heat on my hair, so I really liked the fact that this dryer was fast and efficient in drying. It was easy to use, although the long nozzel did get in the way a few times, and I didn't have to worry about intense heat damaging my hair.
