Today I will review a hair dryer from Remington. I am hoping you all find this helpful. I’ve medium length fine hair that i leave open almost all of enough time. I had a previous hair dryer from Philips, that i started using daily or almost every other day to straighten my hair which began to show damage on my hair. My hair became brittle, more dry and frizzy, despite using heat protectant. I figured that is as a result of my hair dryer that was low voltage and wasn’t designed to use so frequently.
I talked to my salon guy and he advised me easily need to use hair dryer so frequently, I will get one with high voltage and multiple heat settings and preferably with a cool shot button. THEREFORE I went through a whole lot of articles and lastly decided on that one. It has all of the features I desired and more.
Let me reach the merchandise itself now.

My experience with Remington Pro Ionic Ultra Hair Dryer D5020
This hair dryer will come in a box as displayed in pictures, all attachments and dryer itself wrapped in separate cellophane bag inside box. Body is black and silver in color which looks beautiful. Finished . that makes it special and safe to use frequently may be the “ceramic touramaline grill” which produces even heat through the whole drying process and prevents your hair from getting fried. Apparently, it produces negative ions which coats hair and produces shine and reduces frizz. This ceramic and touramaline coating can be popular in every the flat irons. In fact it is 2200 watt. My salon guy advised me to use something with at least 2000 watt. So it’s good for the reason that aspect too.
It uses pro ionic technology for drying hair that’s transforming water droplets in damp hair into numerous small water droplets which ensures quick drying resulting in less frizz.
- Diffuser: can be utilised to create volume in straight fine hair and creating waves and curls.
- Concentrator: May be used during straightening of hair to target air on hair strands.
- Removable lid on back for cleaning.
Heat and air settings and buttons:
There are 3 heat settings and 2 speed settings that can be managed with buttons. And in addition you will find a turbo button for quick drying and a cool shot button for final touch and set your style.It is suggested to use concentrator and diffuser on the cheapest speed and heat settings.
I take advantage of this hair dryer with diffuser on wet hair to quick dry and create volume so when my hair is nearly dry, I make utilization of it with concentrator to straighten my hair. There exists a noticeable difference in hair after blow drying from the very first time use. My hair is less frizzy and I’ve more volume and there’s a noticeable shine in my own hair after using this. I am comparing these effects from my last hair dryer which didn’t have this pro ionic technology and just one single speed and heat settings.There are 3 things that can be considered as cons of the product. First is, It requires longer time to dry my hair with this, could be as a result of the even heat distribution, and in addition, even the best speed setting isn’t so fast.
Second is, its heavy. THEREFORE I recommend sitting on chair while blow drying and resting your arm among. Also, this dryer shouldn’t be used as your first hair dryer because being large in proportions and heavy; it’ll be difficult to take care of for beginners. I used to use Philips one before this and that was compact in proportions and way better to use. But with repetition, you can learn anything, right?
Third thing, that you can notice in pictures, is that it has UK based plug which doesn’t work in India. In fact it is not dual voltage. And that means you must buy a travel adapter sort of thing to create it work in India. This is simply not a con but I didn’t find out about it, therefore i couldn’t make utilization of it for a couple days until I purchased the travel adapter. With travel adapter, it could work in India aswell as in USA( I’ve tried)
