good

This folding dryer with a retractable cord is ideal for traveling, although it works just fine for everyday use. The Andis RC-2 combines ionic and ceramic technologies with three heat and three speed settings, along with a cool-shot option, making for big results from a compact hair dryer. Consumers report quick, even drying with limited frizz, although a few say the dryer is a bit bulky.

Many users like the Andis Ceramic/Ionic RC-2 because it works at home or on the road, with a "Fold-N-Go" design and retractable cord. One user posting a review on Drugstore.com comments that she bought the Andis Ceramic/Ionic RC-2 specifically for travel but likes it so much that she now uses it at home instead of the pricey model she also owns. A majority of users posting reviews on Amazon give the Andis Ceramic/Ionic RC-2 a four- or five-star rating. Several call it a good quality hair dryer, while several more go a step further and say it's the best hair dryer they've ever bought. Users on the site note the silky-smooth feeling of their hair after blow-drying with this model.

The Andis RC-2 offers two innovative hair-drying technologies: ionic and ceramic. Ionic technology uses negative ions to leave hair smooth and sleek, while ceramic components help to heat evenly and keep the air from getting too hot. The Andis Ceramic/Ionic RC-2 also features three heat settings, three speed settings, a cold-shot button, and a concentrator attachment. Moreover, it's lightweight and it folds up nicely for travel, although a few users grumble that it's too heavy and bulky to pack for trips.

Where to buy

What's not to like about the Andis Ceramic/Ionic RC-2? Not much, according to reviews. Hair looks healthy, smooth, and sleek, and the dryer makes a convenient travel companion. It also comes with a five-year warranty.
