What Hair Dryers are Compatible with the Xtava Black Orchid Diffuser?

The xtava black orchid diffuser is a popular and efficient hair diffuser. Along with the hair dryer that xtava recommends, here are a few other hair dryers that are compatible with the black orchid diffuser.

What is the Xtava Black Orchid?

A diffuser attachment is a must when drying naturally textured hair. A diffuser is a bowl-looking attachment you add to the end of your dryer to help evenly distribute the airflow to assist in frizz-free final results.

The Xtava Black Orchid Diffuser is bigger than most comparable options currently on the market. It has tiny holes in the prongs to help distribute air quickly and efficiently through the hair to allow for faster drying times. The large bowl allows for quicker drying time for even the thickest of manes. This diffuser gives maximum definition to every texture from waves to coils.

Since the diffuser is much larger, in regards to width than normal ones on the market, (Xtava black orchid width: 1.8inch diameter) finding dryers to fit the diffuser without having to take out the little ring inside the diffuser is tricky.

Xtava Black Orchid Nozzle Measure = 6-inch circumference

Please note that the Xtava Black Orchid Diffuser is not a universal diffuser. A quick trick to help adjust the diffuser a bit more to your current dryer is taking the internal ring out of the diffuser, allowing it to open up more and accommodate a larger variety of dryers.

Here is a list of dryers I have compiled that fit the Xtava Black Orchid Diffuser:

  • Amika Powercloud
  • Xtava Allure
  • Xtava Peony
  • Xtava Pro 2200W Professional Ionic Hair Dryer
  • ConairPRO SilverBird Turbo (Available at Sally’s Beauty)
  • Rusk Speed Freak 2000
  • Baby Bliss Pro TT Tourmaline Titanium 3000
  • Hot Tools Ulta
  • Beautural Professional 1874W Hair Dryer
  • Infinity Pro Conair Mini Pro Plus
  • Conair Professional Nano Silver
  • Ion Whisper Quiet Lite
  • Conair Infinity Pro 3Q
  • Hot Tools Orange Tourmaline 2100 Turbo Ionic Dryer
  • Pro Beauty Tools Stylist Recommended 1875W Ionic
  • Ba Byliss Pro Ceramix Xtreme
  • GVP (Generic Value Product) Pro 1800
  • Andis Pro Dry
  • Bio Ionic GoldPro Speed Dryer

Xtava Hair Dryer Recall:

As a quick safety side note for you all, it’s my duty to inform you that on Thursday, August 16, 2018, Xtava sent out mass emails to their customers warning of a recall. Some of the recalled hair dryers also have a label underneath the back of the unit bearing the following SKU/model numbers: XTV010001, XTV010001N, XTV010002, or XTV010002N. The Xtava Allure was also one of the dryers recalled. If you purchased any of these dryers from Xtava’s website or Amazon before August 16th, 2018 please contact Xtava to make sure your dryer was not one of the affected dryers.

If you believe you own one of the affected dryers please visit this link to register the dryer and send for a free replacement.

Final Tip


Since discovering the SnozzlePro, I just had to share it with you all! The SnozzlePro Universal Hair Dryer Nozzle Adapter is made of 100% industrial strength silicone, SnozzlePro’s patented design gives your diffuser and concentrator the fit and grip it needs to stay put while protecting your hands from hot attachments. It’s honestly amazing, keeps my Xtava Black Orchid in place, never moves or falls over. Truly makes fitting your diffuser to any dryer an absolute dream! It’s perfect for when I am traveling. The Xtava normally doesn’t fit on the hotel dryers, but the SnozzlePro bridges that gap and makes haircare on the road easy as can be!

Curly Girl Method enthusiast and educator. I have been on my own CGM journey for a bit over three years now. I take a scientific approach to the Curly Girl Method. I believe by learning Trichology (the study of hair and scalp) you can better understand your hair's needs and behaviors. This will help when you need to learn ingredients to read product labels. I research and write each and every article in this site. The information used and referenced on this website come from open access, peer-reviewed journal articles from publications such as the Journal of Cosmetic Science and the International Journal of Trichology.
