The device doesn’t lack of features rather it just focuses on a specific lot. Read on to find out if this is the dryer for you.

Features and Specs

Say goodbye to frilled and stubborn hair for the Conair 1875 Ionic comes fully prepared for that. Ionizer technology has been on the market for quite a while now, but not everyone has perfected it. Listing it as a feature is one thing, deriving benefit from it is totally another.

The Conair 1875 utilizes ionic technology, which adds a stream of negatively charged ions to the air blown during hair drying. These ions, when fused with positive ions present on your hair, create a charge which keeps them in good shape as well as making them less susceptible to losing its form and style.

It has dual heating modes plus cool shot function. You get to choose from a total of three different modes. One is low speed/heat and another is high speed/heat. You can use low speeds when working on a style and/or aren’t in a hurry to get done with the process. Scientifically speaking, you also do less damage with low intensity drying. High speed can be used to get things done in a jiffy and if you’re the type with long hair.

The cool shot function is little different. Liken it to you blowing on a hot beverage such as tea too quickly cool it down. The cool shot function is the same. It blows a gush of cool air to lock a style right there. This is a really neat feature as you would’ve often come across hassles in holding a style because the gel takes time to cool down.

If you’re used to loud noises or live in noisy vicinity, then this might not seem much of a feature. However the Conair 1875 Ionic has a super quiet motor which barely emits any noise.

The grooves at the top of the handle neatly allow your thumb and finger to look over it and snugly fit in place. This not only reduces fatigue on your hand and arms, but also ensures a more secure grip and therefore reduces the chances for an accident.

This dyer has a concentrator and diffuser. This is a big plus for all those who like to accessorize. The Conair 1875 Ionic gets a considerable boost to its functionality with these two accessories in the package. You can use the diffuser for getting those perfect curls they work on at salons and the concentrator can be taken up when you really need to pinpoint an area.
