Hair Dryers

Most people will have used a hair dryer at some time in their life but what considerations should be taken into account before you buy?

Power

The wattage of hair dryers varies usually between 1600 watts and 2500 watts.The higher the wattage the more heat they produce and the quicker it will dry your hair, if you have thicker hair you will need a higher wattage dryer, however, you also need to consider damage to your hair so you are best to choose one with dual temperature control. If you have fine hair then you will be better with a lower wattage dryer.


Weight

Typically hair dryers weigh from 0.45kg to 1.25kg. If you spend a long time drying your hair you will probably prefer a lighter model. If you are looking for a travel hair dryer you will want the lightest you can get whilst still having the power you require for your hair type.


Attachments


Most hair dryers come with basic attachments (with the exception of travel hair dryers which are more basic.) some models also include a diffuser others you are able to purchase as a separate item.


Technology

Manufacturers are constantly trying to come up with models that are smaller more ergonomic and quieter. One of the main problems with constantly using a hair dryer is the damage that it can cause to your hair. Some models now have ionic technology which helps to eliminate static electricity. It also helps to dry the hair more quickly which reduces damage.

The best hair dryer to buy is one that has a combination of features such as dual temperature and Speed control. Ionic technology will help protect your hair. There are also a wide range of products on the market that can be used to protect your hair prior to drying and that will help hold in your style.
