You may already know about CHI’s flat irons, but the brand also has great dryers. This is has a built-in touchscreen to adjust the settings. GH testers had mixed feelings-some loved it, some found it difficult to use – but everyone liked the hefty size of the dryer.
How We Tested: Experts in our Health, Beauty, and Environmental Sciences Lab assessed hair dryers for rate of drying, air volume flow, weight, noise, air and surface temperature, and cord length. Five consumer testers were given a hair dryer to use at home over two to three days, then completed an online survey.
