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:

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.
