The Gama iQ: Your Newest Hair Tool Obsession

Lorie Knickle January 21, 2020

Are you ready to meet your newest hair tool obsession? This hot new product launch has us buzzing! It’s the Gama iQ dryer, and it is ah-mazing.


Full disclosure: this dryer comes with a hefty price tag. Being a savvy shopper I wanted to do a little digging to find out if it's worth the hype. Spoiler alert: it's worth it.


The iQ is 7 times more powerful than other hair dryers, drying hair 30% faster. Being a busy gal on-the-go, the reduced dry time alone grabs my attention. Despite it’s high power, it is lightweight and quiet, which is unusual for a high powered dryer. It's all in the innovative design. The air outlet produces a vacuum effect which efficiently multiplies the air flow dispensed by the motor. This results in loads of airflow without extra weight. In fact, it's the lightest dryer on the market, weighing in at only 294g (the average dryer weighs approximately 900g).


And that’s just the beginning. The iQ features Oxy Active Technology, which means active oxygen is emitted while you dry your locks. What does that do for you? You get shiny hair with increased elasticity and deep scalp cleansing with antibacterial functions.


There are 18 settings to fully customize your speed and heat settings, and they're all easy to use with the LED display. Once you find the settings that work perfectly for you, the memory function remembers your fave settings so you don’t have to.


In addition to all of the high tech features, there are multiple functions that keep the motor free of clogging dirt. A micro particle filter is in place to prevent dirt from entering the motor, but as a precaution the motor self-cleans by rotating the turbine in the opposite direction to loosen any residue and particles. For any other issues, the iQ can self diagnosis, so when things aren’t working properly it will be the first to let you know what's up. 

The Italian-designed gama dryers are manufactured internationally to the highest standards, and each one is quality checked in Italy. Their journey begins in Italy where they are designed and their parts created. The parts are then assembled in gama’s China facility. After assembly the dryers are shipped back to Italy for inspection. Once they are thoroughly inspected, they are shopped at Chatters Hair Salons or online, until they go to their new Style Happy home.
