To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought this for everyday use, because I wanted a diffuser which I can carry with me as I like to go on weekends away. So far I have managed to fit it to every hairdryer (5+ different models), but it can be difficult on bigger hairdryers. Overall would recommend and buy again, but removed one star as it does tend to collapse when not used carefully.
Works like any diffuser and gets the job done. I have very thick long hair so sometimes if too much hair is on it, the top will collapse a bit. Haven't found this a problem though because it just changed how I held my hairdryer to prevent this. It's made of a good quality thick plastic, so the collapsing doesn't cause any damage to the product.
I almost didn’t buy this because of the mixed reviews, but I did, so after using it on two trips, I thought I’d leave my take on it... 1) it fit both hotel hairdryers - one was much much more difficult to get the diffuser on, but it did go on both. 2) yes, it will collapse if you use too much pressure. I’ve got a lot of hair. So on the dryer that it was harder to put on - it collapsed pretty easily. I used two hands and it got the job done.
Basically - it’s lightweight, compact and got my curls dry when I need it to. Would I use it regularly at home? Nope. Would I keep packing it on trips? Yep.
This diffuser is very easy to use. You just need to be sure that your hair dryer nozzle is within the appropriate range. I actually bought this for traveling along with a travel hair dryer, so I made sure to purchase the dryer with the right size nozzle. It is easy to fit on and the soft material easily collapses to pack snugly into your suitcase. It does occasionally collapse a little bit during use, and may do even more for people with longer, heavier hair (mine is quite short). However, it doesn't bother me and doesn't seem to make a difference with my hair. Since starting the curly girl method, this diffuser has helped transform my hair from dull frizzy waves to vibrant, defined curly waves!
The diffuser packs easily. It is not as good as a standard one but works reasonably well for a travel solution. The two detractions are 1) that it does not fit many dryers, particularly a number made by Conair. I ended up having to buy a new travel dryer to go with it (Revlon makes one that fits) and 2) it collapses while being used but it works when it's not extended . Bottom line: not perfect but a good solution for those who pack light.
