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! :)

    Comments about Ionic Dual-Voltage Travel Hair Dryer:

    Just purchased for upcoming trip so don't have a lot to say yet. It blows hard on high, heat regulates fine, folds up for compact storage. A bit loud, but aren't they all? Can I say, recommendation came from a Rick Steves's tour guide?

            I have arthritis and this product is lightweight yet produces all the heat necessary. Really like the concentrator which keeps the frizzies down to a minium. This is my second Brookston ionic hair dryer, which I use every day.

            I owned this dryer before and I have LOVED it! This time the air diffuser doesn't want to stay on the dryer. I am very disappointed. I would recommend the dryer based on my previous experience, but would warn about the new issue. It is a REAL pain when the diffuser keeps falling off!

                this is my second one of these. I'm still using my first one and I love it. This one is for our second home. My adult daughter liked mine so much she asked for one of her own.
                I even take it with me when I travel. I MUCH prefer it to hotel dryers.

                  Comments about Ionic Dual-Voltage Travel Hair Dryer:

                  A month trip to Europe was in the works and my old travel hairdryer had bit the dust; and I didn't like it all that much when I did use it overseas anyway so I wasn't too heartbroken it was time to be junked.

                  This one worked as advertised - both lower and higher settings worked perfectly in the UK (with a UK plug adapter) and it didn't sound or feel like it was going to explode (like my older one did)when I changed to a higher setting. The cord is long enough so you should have elbow room between the wall outlet and your dryer. It worked great in the US too and it is light and folds up easily so it takes little space in your luggage and won't add to your luggage weight. The voltage changer is obvious so you know you are setting it correctly when using it outside of the US - my older one was a little bit of a guessing game which made me weary when first turning it on in Europe.

                  So what is it missing?? -- a carrying/storage pouch case. I chucked the old dryer and kept the pouch since this newer one didn't have a nice way to get stored. It's a silly little thing, but it helps keep everything all together nicely when packed up.

                  Highly recommend getting this. You can use the hairdryers in the hotels in Europe, but their cords aren't always very long and you'll be wishing you had your own hair dryer with a longer (and straighter!) cord.
