From ceramic to porcelain-ceramic to ionic to tourmaline technology, it seems as if hair dryers are becoming more and more “techie” like smartphones. The BaByliss PRO hair dryer, dubbed as the Tourmaline Titanium 3000, is the latest and best hair dryer in BaByliss’ impressive line of hair styling tools. This professional hair dryer is rated at 1,900 watts and uses the latest in ionic technology called tourmaline. I know, I know… it can get confusing with all these mumbo-jumbo tech jargons but one thing’s for certain — the BaByliss PRO gives the best of both worlds as it uses ceramic and tourmaline technologies in one small but very powerful package.
Ceramic technology means that ceramic is integrated into the heating element of the BaByliss PRO, allowing it to emit negative ions more freely. And with the help of tourmaline technology, this device is capable of emitting twice the amount of negative ions into the hair! Speaking of which, negative ions are a good thing because they restore and revitalize the hair, making it smoother and shinier. As a result, this makes the BaByliss BABTT5585 a healthier alternative to traditional hair dryers. By utilizing these latest technological advances, repeated use of this hair dryer will actually help close hair cuticles and lock in natural hair moisture, sheen, and texture. Incorporating ceramic technology also means that this unit will produce even and continuous heating while releasing far infrared heat which will dry the hair from the inside and cut hair drying time by as much as 50%! Limiting hair exposure to heat means less damage to the hair while the use of far infrared heat will produce a smoother and shinier hair without the need of additional finishing tools like a flat or curling iron.
The BaByliss PRO TT features a 6-speed heat setting plus a cold shot button. Unlike traditional hair dryers, this has a removable rear filter which makes cleaning easy and convenient. This is perfect for getting rid of dust or hair particles that often get stuck in the heating coils (which reduce the efficiency of the hair dryer). BaByliss also added the convenience of an extra long 9-foot cord, making it a great tool for multitasking while doing your (or someone else’s) hair. A concentrator nozzle is also included to help get the right amount of air flow directed at your hair.
