Babyliss Pro Ceramix Xtreme Review
Sheer drying power may be the thing users like most about the Babyliss Pro Ceramix Xtreme BAB2000. On multiple sites, Babyliss Pro Ceramix Xtreme reviews comment on this model's fast drying, quiet operation, and seemingly miraculous ability to leave hair frizz-free, although several users complain that it is too heavy to hold for long. That said, speed seems to be the hair dryer's standout quality. Reviews on Folica.com report that it dries even thick hair fast -- in half the time of other dryers, say some -- and leaves hair looking healthy. On the downside, some consumers posting on this site grumble about the weight and a few report that the sliding controls are oddly located on the handle, making them hard to adjust with one hand. Overall, though, reviews are positive, and one posting on Amazon simply says its quality is noticeable immediately.
The Babyliss Pro Ceramix Xtreme BAB2000 boasts more power than the other cheap hair dryers we researched -- 2,000 watts compared with the typical 1,875. Indeed, power is one feature that differentiates higher-end hair dryers from low-priced models. With the Babyliss Pro Ceramix Xtreme BAB2000, you get upmarket power for downmarket cost. This cheap hair dryer also features ceramic technology for even heat and six speed/heat settings, as well as a cold-shot button for more drying control. It comes with a concentrator attachment and sports a 9-foot cord.
With professional features, such as the higher wattage and longer cord, and good consumer reviews, we think this hair dryer is a solid buy even if it's a little hefty and a little pricey.
