I would recommend looking at heat styling products to put in the ends of your hair instead of looking for new dryers. They’re much cheaper and more likely to help 🙂 

I use Biosilk because I found a great deal, but Chi also makes a great oil (I forget the name) that’s just out of my budget. Argan oil is also nice. A little bit goes a very long way and it’s done wonders to help me fix the damage I have done to the ends of my own hair. If you use the right amount, it won’t weigh your hair down either.

Are you using product on your hair? You may also need to use the medium heat setting and the low speed setting.

I have very long hair that’s been color treated and it’s pretty healthy. I don’t think it really matters what you use to dry your hair, it’s HOW you use it. For what it’s worth, I use a cheap con-air ion shine hair dryer that’s like 7 years old. I can go forever in between trims b/c of how gently I treat my hair. Deep conditioning, using gentle heat/ heat protecting products, and handling hair the way you’d handle fragile silk is the key to non-damaged hair, not the brand of hot air blower you purchase. A good diet, with plenty of vitamins isn’t a bad idea either if you want stronger, more resilant hair!

@Adeline4:  That’s great! but not all heat protecting products are created equal. If you’ve already tried something like Biosilk or Argan oil, I don’t have any other advice, but I will share this story: Months ago I sorrowfully decided to cut several inches off my hair to cut off the heat damage. I had done the damage a year prior to that, and it was really severe. I’d been using Biosilk and argan oil for that year long span, and the stylist at this high end salon commented that the damage to my hair didn’t even seem to be that bad. The stuff works to smooth things out and really help, that all I’m saying. Good luck! 🙂

@Adeline4:  I’d switch to a cream, serum, or oil. Also, keep the heat far away from your hair. I would avoid using a brush while you dry your hair too.

I have to say what made the difference in my hair was spending the extra money on a good dryer . I finally spent the money and bought a Babylis and my hair has never dried faster or looked  shiner
