Before I bought this product, I used a basic hairdryer (no big name brand or anything) and I asked my hairdresser what I could do to make my hair feel like I just left the salon every time I style it myself. Her response was asking what type of hairdryer I used, and I told her just some basic one I got years ago. She recommended that I get this hair dryer and so I did! The packaging was very nice, the dryer has a thick durable cord, and this hairdryer even has a feature that lets you know when you need to clean the filter so it will continually give you great results. The Neuro Dry is so high quality and I'm so glad I splurged ($185 US) and got it! It has decreased my blow dry time almost in half and has reduced the frizz so so much! I would never go back to my old hairdryer in a million years! When I blow dry my hair I use a round brush and once I'm finished my hair is pretty much straight (I have naturally wavy hair). I can also use the Paul Mitchell defuser I have when I want to embrace my natural waves! I used to have to straighten my whole head after my hair was dry to tame the frizz and now I only need to straighten a few pieces on top! I would highly recommend this tool to anyone, all hair types!
