Are you looking for a small sized hair dryer that is easy to take with you anyplace you travel? When then look no further because this BaBylissPRO compact hair dryer has got you covered. It features the ultimate in portability for a hair dryer. I was so intrigued that the reputable BaBylissPRO Company put so much effort into a travel size hair dryer that I just had to review it to see what all the fuss was about.
Taking a Quick Glance at BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Bambino Compact DryerHere is a brief overview of the good and bad things about this hair dryer that is easy to bring anywhere with you:

BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Bambino Compact Dryer’s Key Characteristics
This is not the most powerful travel hair dryer we have ever reviewed but it does have an adequate mix of air flow and heat to handle most hair types. It features a 1000 watt motor, 2 heat settings and 2 airflow settings.
The BaBylissPRO Bambino Compact Dryer features this company’s proprietary Nano Titanium technology too. It combines the benefits of consistent heat with an added negative ion capability. That makes this travel dryer very gentle on all hair types and it will add some shine to your hair as you dry it too.
The dual voltage capability it has is a great feature. It is what makes this compact hair dryer a true model that you can take with you anywhere in the world that you will travel to. It can be plugged into either 115V electrical outlets or 230V electrical depending on what country you are in at the time. You no longer need separate dryers to use in the USA and overseas.
Included in your purchase is a detachable clear out filter, several attachments and its backed by a full 1-year warranty.
The Signature Feature on the BaBylissPRO Bambino Compact Dryer
This may just be the smallest and easiest hair dryer ever to take with you when you travel. It measures just 5.5 x 2.5 x 7.9 inches. That means this travel dryer is so small you could even take it with you in a large purse. It does not get any more convenient than that when it comes to packing a dryer to take with you when you are on the go.
It’s also a very lightweight hair drying too. That adds even more to its already outstanding portability. The BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Bambino Compact Dryer weighs only a scant 9.6 ounces.
Areas That Could Use Improvement with BaBylissPRO Bambino
At 1000 watts I feel this dryer from BaBylissPRO is definitely underpowered. It just does not seem to produce nearly as much high heat and quantity of air that a full-size model produces. This means that if you have very thick or very curly hair this compact travel dryer may have trouble breaking the strong hydrogen bonds that will allow you to easily style it.
I was also a little disappointed that this hair drying tool does not have more temperature settings than just 2. It’s very important to have as many temperature settings as you can in a hair dryer in order to match the proper heat and airflow to many different hair types.
It’s true this travel dryer is a little underpowered but that won’t affect those that have thin to medium thick hair at all. As a matter of fact, most hair types can use the BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Bambino Compact Dryer without any problems. It might just take slightly longer to dry your hair.
If you are concerned more with size than anything else in a travel hair dryer than it does not get any better than it gets with this hair dryer. It is the ultimate travel dryer size and weight wise. When you factor in its Nano Titanium technology, dual voltage capability and size it’s very easy to overlook this compact travel dryer’s other deficiencies.
