About 235,000 Allure and Allure Pro hair dryers are being recalled due to fire, burn, and electrical shock hazards. 

In a recall announced Wednesday, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says the hair dryer and power cord can overheat and catch on fire. 

There have been 193 reports of hair dryers or power cords overheating, melting, exploding, or catching fire, according to the CPSC. The agency says 18 consumers have reported being burned, including one case of severe burns, and two people have reported being shocked. 

The recall is for Allure and Allure Pro 2200W ionic ceramic hair dryers. The hand-held dryers are either white or black and include a concentrator nozzle. 

The dryers were sold both separately and as part of various hair care kits. 

They were sold online at Amazon.com, eBay.com, Walmart.com, and at other online retail websites from October 2014 through August 2018. 

According to the CPSC, consumers should immediately stop using the dryers and contact Xtava for a free replacement dryer. You can call the company at 877-643-8440 or click here to visit their website for more information.
