Who has an outstanding one that works fast on fine hair?
Mine is dying....

I have a Chi that I really like. I have fine hair, but a lot of it. I wanted something lightweight as I tend to do a slow dry and this fit the bill. It was a little bit spendy. When I'm lazy and just blast my head, it is pretty quick.

Consumer reports rated a couple of Chi modelshigh alongwith one Revlon model. Only differences were noise and price. I bought the Revlon model at Target for less than $21 on sale. At that rate I can afford to replace it 3 or 4 times for what the Chi costs. And it is definitely quieter than my old one, with more setting options and very light weight. You can PM me if you want specifics.

CHI makes a travel version, smaller and lightweight, alot less expensive than of their bulkier models that can run from $130 to $170!

I think price is somewhere around $50ish.

I have the travel version of the baby bliss one. It is very compact but dries my hair really fast and I have a lot of hair. I can't remember what I paid for it because I bought it about 5 years ago but it wasn't expensive.

I have a John Frieda blow dryer, I got it at ULTA and I love it! I don't have fine hair, I have really thick hair and it blow drys it fast and leaves my hair full of volume and feeling really silky. I was really impressed when I used it the first time! Hope you find a good one!

You know, I started to buy my hair dryers and flat iron from - they are affordable and have amazing reviews, both written and video. I used to use a Chi and ended up going with a Solia brand dryer and flat iron. What I love about the dryer is that it gives me 2 speed options and 3 heat options plus a cold shot. It's honestly the best blow dryer I've ever had.

I have a Rusk Speed Freak 2000 Watts I love it. I have hair that loves to hold onto water and this one does a good job fairly quick for me.

The more expensive hair dryers are quieter. I recommend the Solano brand ( You can buy them at Ulta, but they are pricier than your cheaper Revlon or any brand sold at Target. I have a super solano red/black. It's 10 years old, still going strong, and Solano will repair them and clean dust out of the housing etc.

There's a new line of dryers from Harry Josh ( I bought one b/c while I love my Super Solano, it's heavy. The Harry Josh is super light and is just an awesome hair dryer too.

So now I have two hair dryers lol.
