Wahl 5439-024 Hair Dryer with Diffuser Review

I have been using the Revlon RV544PKF 1875W Tourmaline Ionic Ceramic Diffuser for quite some time now. But it suddenly decided to give up on me. So I purchased the Wahl 5439-024 Hair Dryer with Diffuser.

Description by Wahl: This quiet yet powerful 2000 W hair dryer is highly durable and comes with AC collector motor that successfully meets the demands of professionals in grooming salons. It is equipped with the latest tourmaline technology, which produces negative ions and works in a gentle manner thereby ensuring that your hair looks glossy and up-to-the-mark.

Price: Around 2200INR. You can buy it here.


Here’s Everything about diffusing curly hair – What, Why, How

+ The diffuser attachment is shaped perfectly with quality fingers that diffuse air well.

+ It has 2 Speed Settings and 3 Heat Settings which is what I like the most compared to my earlier diffuser.

+ Dries hair quite fast.

+ Imparts good volume, body and bounce to curls (and is the main reason I use diffusers).

+ Tourmaline technology is incorporated.

+ It’s manufactured by Wahl India and so has an Indian style plug. And it’s suitable for India’s Voltage.

– It’s quite heavy.

– The high wattage may not be suitable for fine hair. Even in the lowest heat setting, if you keep it close to your scalp for a long time, your scalp burns. That is why it is important to keep rotating between sections of hair.

– It is not compact enough for travel.

Overall, this is a great diffuser in India for this price!


  1. Hi anjana, can we attach diffuser separately with dryer? I have Philips dryer working well in my home, it would be better to add diffuser to it than buying new one. If you know, Can you suggest some models suitable for Philips?

    1. Hi Deepthi 🙂 I don’t know if this would fit in a Philips dryer. Nor do I know any that would fit. But you can try a hot sock. It fits almost all dryer I think. Don’t know how effective it is as a diffuser though.

  2. Hi Anjana I just want to know if you received the diffuser attachment with the dryer, because i have the same dryer but i cant seem to find the attachment. Do you perhaps know where i can order one?

    1. I did receive the attachment along with this. Maybe they sell one without the attachment as well. I’ve linked the amazon link in the article itself 🙂
