I had a remington years ago which was fantastic but it finally died this year, bought this replacement based on the reviews and wish i hadn't! I have thick well defined corkscrew curls and cannot dry my hair without a diffuser, otherwise it goes like a straw thatch.....The diffuser has that many holes in it that the hairdryer blows your hair around like crazy, its not a diffuser, more like a black plastic doily.... If people are raving about this hairdryer they must have straight hair or be happy with the wild look! I ended up buying a £15 babyliss hairdryer from asda with a fantastic wide funnelled deep bowl diffuser which respects the curl. If you want a curl instead of a thatch, stay away from this one! Would give it zero stars if i could!
