While blow drying my hair tonight my hair dryer started to lag then I pulled it away from my hair to look at it and then flames shot out from the end of the handle. I immediately unplugged the hair dryer and brought it outside as it was still smoking. This hair dryer was in perfect shape, no damage prior to it starting on fire. Only has been used maybe 8 times since buying it. Thankful my hair wasn't set on fire or burned myself or started the house on fire. Could have been worse but very dissatisfied with the quality of this hair dryer and not getting much use out of it.
