Rated 1 out of 5 by from Soft bonnet hair dryer Bonnet elastic was painful and the bonnet had an odd odor. Would like to return but not sure if that is possible.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible It only dries the area of the hair that is closest to the hose opening. That one area will get completely fried while the rest of the hair is still wet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this hair dryer This hair dryer is awesome!!! The settings are great!! The bonnet is comfortable and it dries my hair very fast. It is noisy but it didn’t bother me because it sounds just like a salon dryer. My only complaint is the tubing that attaches to the bonnet is not long enough. Other than that it’s great!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this dryer! I used to have the Clairol soft bonnet dryer but could not find a replacement anywhere here in Toronto. Read the reviews of this dryer, most of which seemed to be on the negative side. So glad I ignored them all. Love, love, love this dryer. Heat on setting 2 is perfect. Not too hot and does the job. As for the bonnet ripping, this is an issue inherent with all of these soft bonnet dryers so,I simply don’t stuff it back into the compartment. Only negative is that it is loud.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It! This dryer has taken my deep conditioning to the next level! I've used it about 8-10 times with great results. After reading other reviews, to prevent the bonnet from tearing, I don't put it back in the case. And it does get very hot. I am able to use the high setting because I use my conditioning cap as sort of a barrier between the bonnet and my skin. Works perfect.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bonnet Is Junk This dryer worked okay until the bonnet attachment broke. I called Carel Customer Service and was told they no longer carry replacement bonnets for the 400W model (model 61501), only the 800W.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice Just recently purchased this dryer, I like that it's so compact and that all the pieces fold away neatly into the little case. It works very well and drys my hair pretty quickly. It's a lot louder than I expected but it's a hair dryer so I suppose it's not meant to be quiet. The only thing I don't like about this dryer is that the hose detaches from the bonnet very easily & I have to keep re-attaching it throughout the use, other than that it's nice machine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Dryer I've had mine for almost 10 yrs, and it still works great. Besides it being a bit noisy, it gets the job done. It's durable & it also gets very hot. I'm still pleased with my purchase. I have thick hair that's down past my waist in length. I roller set my hair which takes lots of rollers, but this dryer is capable of covering all of my hair with no problems, unlike other dryers. It also provides a good equal flow of air through the bonnet, which allows my hair to evenly dry.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from model 61501 dark gray the hose does not stay connected to the bonnet so I have to use scotch tape to keep it together to be able to use it... other than that, it works very well, dries fast and is so compact

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great dryer I brought this several years ago and I'm pleased with this bonnet. It dryers my hair when I do roller sets. If you need a replacement bonnet contact Helen of Troy, look online for contact information . I purchased several replacement bonnets.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from fragile bonnet -- no replacements available I bought this and, on its initial use, was very satisfied. It's lightweight, easy to carry, comfortable to use. Great. So I pull it out to use it a second time--and already, the bonnet is badly ripped! Although I tried to take good care and follow instructions, those instructions require you to cram the bonnet into a storage space that is a little too small for it AND has unnecessary sharp edges along the borders. You almost CAN'T avoid ripping the bonnet open if you store it as the instructions ask you to. I have no idea why the product would be designed this way. It would be easy for those inner edges to be rounded and not one jot more expensive to the manufacturer ... but no. At first I figured that was a racket to sell you replacement bonnets--but as far as I can tell, those aren't even for sale! This is a disgraceful ripoff of a product. Carel will never get my business again for any product whatsoever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I was blessed to get a good productive one. I've had it almost 10 years and it still works great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what I need I purchased this to condition and roller set my hair weekly and it works fine. When I want it on the highest setting I just wrap paper towels around my edges. I also alternate settings as to not burn which helps. To keep the bonnet on you have to turn the hose until it snaps. Did not know that at first and was trying to be delicate with it bc of negative reviews. Only issue I see so far is the noise but that is no different than going to the salon so it really is not an issue for me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay for the money I got this after buying the Gold 'N Hot hair bonnet dryer. That dryer fell apart after only 2 uses. Just like the other reviewers have said, yes, this does get VERY hot on the High setting. Even the hose gets hot. However, unlike the other reviewers, my unit does get cool on the Low setting and is cool on the Cool setting. I still find this bonnet better than the Gold 'N Hot one. And the box said that this version is the "New Quieter Design". I can't imagine this unit being louder than it already is.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The bonnet ripped after 3 uses. The heat settings were all the, hot, and hot. I returned it to the local Sally's without a problem. I purchased the Ionic God and I'm happy!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from burning hot! The settings on it are high, low, cool, and off. The low, instead of being warm, blows at the EXACT SAME heat and power as "high." EXACT SAME. And "high" is unbearably hot. And I have a very tough head (as in the opposite of tender-headed).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Bonnet Ever! I agree with the other sane people who have experienced the use of this product. First, the Carel Soft Bonnet Ionic Hairdryer gets very noisy. Second, it gets extremely TOO HOT! Third, the bonnett-tube connection fell apart within a few uses. Finally, the Carel Soft Bonnet Ionic Hairdryer is priced too high for the poor quality it offers. I would not recommend this product to anyone, for any reason.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Purchase I know A LOT of people hate this product, but I guess I got lucky with mine. I have had it for about 2 years and I love it! Yes, it is nosy, and yes, it can get very hot, but I usually keep it on low settings and told my family to get used to the noise. I didn't have any trouble with the nozzle detaching from the bonnet or trouble with the string to adjust the fit of the bonnet.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't Waste Your Money I just purchased this dryer and I am returning it to the store for a refund. It is extremely noisy, the low setting will burn your scalp. I had to keep alternating between the cool and low setting. The string on the bonnett is cheap it won't allow you to tighten it for a snug fit. Overall it's the worst bonnett dryer I have ever used.
Date published: 2011-01-23
Rated 1 out of 5 by from I can't believe they still sell this! I worked at Sallys while I was in beauty school. This thing got more complaints than any other product in the store. This was 3 years ago. I don't understand why they haven't discontinued or recalled them all by now. If anyone knows of a good bonnet dryer please let me know!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Buyer Beware I just purchased this dryer on 9/25/10 and am planning to return it ASAP. The hose kept disengaging from the bonnet, the hose got too HOT, and it was extremely noisy. I asked the store clerks before buying and all they said is that a lot of people buy this product. I guess they failed to tell me that as many return it!
Date published: 2010-09-26
Rated 1 out of 5 by from I should have listened to the reviews! This has got to be the worst soft bonnet hairdryer ever! As stated in other reviews, it gets waaay to hot. I mean it literally burns your scalp and hairline and thats on the low setting! I kept having to turn it round to get to other parts of my head because the heat does not distribute evenly. I just purchased this yesterday now taking it back today. Please dont buy this! It is a waste of money. I am going the try the bonnet attachment that attaches to your handheld dryer. Wish me luck!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of my money I see now why I had problems with this hair dryer. I have only used it twice and the hat has come apart. It gets too hot and it is too noisy. If I had known what a bad deal this would be, I never would have purchased it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst dryer EVER! I purchased this hair dryer a little over a month ago for deep conditioning treatments. I went to use it last night only to find that the ring around the back had totally come apart from the bonnet! I also hate that string on the side! You cant tighten it at all! This will be returned first thing in the morning. For $50 you would think they could make them a little better.

I am needing a replacement dog bonnet. The hose will not stay in mine

Asked by: Rileygirl
I'm sorry, I don't know where to get a replacement bonnet for your dryer. Perhaps if you try building up the inside of the connection on the bonnet itself perhaps it would stay. Just be careful not to block the airflow. Have you tried eBay? Or Amazon? I've found things on both that was surprised they had available. I spent an hour searching the internet for you, but to no avail. Just don't try a generic type of bonnet. I've done that in the past, don't waste your money. Good luck to you..
