Speed Dryer

THE CLAIM: This tool's design mimics the way many pros hold a dryer in the salon--by the nozzle instead of the handle--for more targeted air flow. Ceramic-coated grills in the motor produce negative ions to cut back on frizz and drying time.

THE EXPERT SAYS: "Taking the handle off is a smart idea," says N.Y.C. hairstylist River Lloyd. "I love how it allows for more controlled grooming but doesn't burn your hand."

OUR VERDICT: The powerhouse got our thick, coarse locks sleek in half the usual time. And it's compact enough to fit in a purse--great for travel.
