It sounds as if 'ionic' hair dryers are the same for your hair as ordinary hair dryers.

Ionic Hair Dryers
The Good Housekeeping Institute also tested a new breed of "ionic" hair dryers to see if they delivered. The dryers are supposed to bathe the user's hair in negative ions, which attach to positively charged wet hair, and lock in moisture. Testers found that the new dryers do not save much time, but they were helpful in adding sheen.
"You see a lot about ionic hair dryers these days," Levine said. "It's a buzz word. They are often billed as drying faster than standard dryers and often cost a lot more. We found mixed results, some faster, some slower."
Consumer reports say all hair dryers are called 'ionic' now:Best wishes,

You can buy a hair dryer, also called a blow dryer, for $20, but surely a $200 hotshot with high wattage will dry your hair faster, right? Wrong. Despite big differences in price and wattage, drying time for the 10 hairdryer models we tested didn't vary much. Fancy claims were harder to assess. There were "ceramic" and "tourmaline" dryers among the high- and low-rated models. And all the dryers are claimed by manufacturers to be "ionic" (they release charged ions).
