Ionic Dual-Voltage Travel Hair Dryer

A powerful, portable dryer that releases negative ions for beautiful-looking hair.


Brookstone's compact ionic hair dryer with true dual-voltage delivers all the power of a full size unit in half the size.
1,875 watts of power dries hair quickly, and its true dual-voltage capacity allows for use around the world. This portable hair dryer converts from 125v to 250v at the flip of a switch. And unlike some dryers that claim to be "dual-voltage," ours allows you to use both speed settings and the cool shot button in the 250v mode.

A built-in ionizer emits negatively charged ions to offset damaging positive ions produced by the environment and conventional hair dryers.

Regular use adds volume to your hair, improves luster, and reduces flyaway and frizzy hair, leaving hair feeling full, healthy and strong. 3" w x 7" l x 3 1/2" h (folded). 69" cord.

Brookstone's travel ionic hair dryer blows the competition away! Order yours now, and get ready to enjoy compact portability, true dual-voltage compatibility and the silky effects of negative ions.

I LOVE this dryer. I discovered it in 2003 or 2004 and I am responsible for at least 8 other sales of this dryer because I have been a walking commercial for it for years. I have bought a couple of them as gifts and have talked friends into buying one for themselves and everyone loves it once they try it! It dries my hair SO quickly and I find that it makes it softer, smoother and shinier than when I use a different dryer.

This is my only dryer and I use it every other day when I wash my hair. I also use it now and then to dry my Golden-Lab after his shower! I took this dryer to Scotland and forgot to flip the voltage to the appropriate setting for Europe and fried it immediately. I had to RENT a crummy travel dryer from the hotel for 2 weeks! When I returned home, I went to Brookstone and explained what happened and they GRACIOUSLY replaced it for me!

It's been over 2.5 years since I've had my replacement dryer and this past week I've had my first problem. It won't run on the high setting (my favorite), so my husband dissected the dryer and saw that the wires at the pivot part of the dryer are broken. I'm going to take this back to Brookstone to ask if there is a warranty that will cover replacing it. I definitely have to have this dryer again but I think I should probably stop using it as my only dryer since opening and closing it wears out the wires.

All in all, I LOVE this dryer and still HIGHLY recommend it! It’s so affordable for what you get, too! Salon quality for a drugstore price! :)

Bigger than previous travel hair dryer

By traveler

from Denver CO

Comments about Ionic Dual-Voltage Travel Hair Dryer:

I bought a Brookstone travel hair dryer about 8 or 10 years ago … it was great … small and compact and good air volume. When it finally fell apart I purchased this one. It's 50% larger than the old version so it takes up more room in my suitcase. And I find the thicker handle hard to hold on to.

    Comments about Ionic Dual-Voltage Travel Hair Dryer:

    I have owned one of these hair dryers for years and have used it in the US, back home in the UK, across Europe and the Far East. It is an excellent piece of equipment, especially for the price. What prompts me to write this review is seeing complaints from other people saying the dryer was screeching, over-heating and then stopped working when they used it abroad. You MUST check the country's voltage and then slide the voltage switch to the correct setting. If you don't then yes, it will cut out on you for your own safety. I hope this helps reassure anyone considering buying this product - I wouldn't be without mine.

        Comments about Ionic Dual-Voltage Travel Hair Dryer:

        I have tried several other hair dryers and I find them too strong and too heavy. This is the second Brookstone hair dryer that I have had and find it perfect for me. I am 80 years old and cannot hold a heavier dryer too long. This one is just the right weight and I have very fine hair so the setting on the Ionic hair dryer is just right. Other hair dryers blow too strong and I cannot get my hair into a decent style.

        Comments about Ionic Dual-Voltage Travel Hair Dryer:

        This is my second hair dryer of this kind. The first one I had for 3+ years and still works! I just got a new one as a back up.

        It is great for traveling and dries hair well. It is a little load, but it's actually not that loud when compared to other hair dryers.

        I really love this particular product, and I hope you will too!

            Love this hair dryer, but am having to replace my original one after traveling with it to Thailand. Dual voltage? Not so much. I made it 12 days into my 17 day trip before it finally overheated for good. Still love the dryer enough to purchase another, just won't take it overseas again.

            My previous Brookstone hair dryer really was small and compact. unfortunately, something about the electrical current in Malaysia caused t to malfunction...so I had to get another. This one is not much smaller than my home model and thus consumes more space and weight than I am happy with, so I intend to use it sparingly.

                  My travel companion and I both bought this dryer for a trip to Italy as well as the plug in converter that as sold alone side it. On the first use, one dryer blew up in 2 seconds and the other did the same. I do not have the kind of hair you can wash and not blow dry and now we are stranded! DO NOT BUY!!!
