The idea of this is great, and when it is open and in use it works just fine as a diffuser. But when it gets warm from the blowdrier air, it colapses with the slightest touch part of the way down which is annoying when you are trying to dry your hair. The other thing is that the material catches dust very easily and isn't easy to wipe clean.
As soon as I opened the package I tried to attach it to my blow dryer. I have a small travel blow dryer. It was kind of awkward to get it on but I did, i turn it on and moved it around and it just collapsed. It collapses without the weight of my hair. Very disappointing but also cannot be bothered to return. I still plan to travel with it and hope my hotels have blow dryers. But cannot use on a regular basis which is what I really wanted it for. While it is collapsible if you going with a really small carryon like I am it still takes up some room but definitely not a bad as a blow dryer.
Deducted 2 stars because the round panel with the prongs keeps coming out of place and I have to keep resetting it which is a huge pain. Otherwise it works really well and folds down to a packable size.
I LOVE the idea of this diffuser. With naturally curly hair, I'm constantly struggling with the decision to pack my bulky diffuser on out of town trips. When I saw this collapsible diffuser, I thought problem solved! In reality, though, the inner portion of the diffuser is not attached in any way to the collapsible portion. The force of the air from my hair dryer kept blowing it out, causing the diffuser to hit me in the head. Surely there's a better way to attach this than just setting it in a small ridge. I plan to super glue that portion to the collapsible portion to make this usable. So, good idea in theory, but know if you buy it you'll have to do some MacGyvering.
I travel about 4-6 times a year and I would say over the past 2 years this diffuser only fit 1 dryer in 1 of the hotels I stayed at. Most of the dryers are too wide for this to fit so I have to try and balance it on the dryer as I flip my hair upside down. Not very useful. I'm going to see if I can find one that is wider.
