Conair vs BaByliss Hair Dryer - Which Is The Best Ionic Tourmaline Hair Dryer?

Both companies make affordable ionic tourmaline hair dryers but the Conair Infiniti is a lot cheaper than the BaByliss PRO TT (Carrera 2) Tourmaline 3000. So, does this make Conair the better buy, or does the BaByliss cost more because it delivers more? Here's what you get and don't get with both dryers.
If you looking to replace your old blow dryer then be sure to but one than is ionic and features both ceramic and tourmaline components. Basically, traditional dryers produce lots of positive ions that are extremely bad for your hair, whereas ionic dryers produce negative ions that help seal the cuticle and lock in moisture in the hair shaft. Negative ions also break down water droplets into much smaller droplets that evaporate quickly and can even be absorbed into your hair, meaning you get quicker drying times with less damaged hair that looks shinier and feels healthier.
Ceramic is used for the heating element as it produces even heat distribution and is also self regulating so the heat stays at the desired temperature. Ceramic also produces infrared heat that dries hair from the inside out thereby helping to reduce heat damage.
Tourmaline is a precious stone that naturally emits lots of negative ions. When incorporated into the dryers components you get the maximum possible amount of negative ions.
The Conair hair dryer (Infiniti Professional Tourmaline Ionic Styler) retails at nearly half the cost of the BaByliss and is very value for the money. Despite being cheaper than most other brands, you get a professional 1875 watt motor which compares favorably to the 1900 watt motor that comes with the BaByliss. Apart from price it outscores its competitor in as much as you not only get a concentrator but also a tourmaline ceramic diffuser - the BaByliss Carrera 2 does not come with a diffuser.
However the BaByliss hair dryer does come with more heat/speed settings - 3 heat and 3 speed compared to 3 heat and 2 speed settings of the Conair (both come with a cool shot button).
Cord length can be an important consideration and again the BaByliss outscores its competitor as it comes with a generous 9' cord compared to only 7'.
Another very important point to consider when buying a blow dryer is how much it weighs. Using one can become very tiring so it's important to find a lightweight model. The Conair Infiniti weighs a hefty 3.45 lbs but the BaByliss only weighs 1.26 lbs. Again, this makes the Carrera a clear winner.
If how an appliance looks is important to you, rest assured that both are very stylish and sleek in appearance and won't disgrace your vanity unit.
In conclusion, the Conair hair dryer is a great buy if you're on a budget and don't require a third speed setting and don't mind it being a little on the heavy side. However, there's no doubting that the BaByliss hair dryer nudges its competitor into second place and it's really worth spending that bit extra.
