Your blow dryer is one of the foundation hair tools in your beauty kit. It’s often the first heat tool you use on your hair. Your hair dryer not only helps to set your style. It adds volume and shine. It can even put the “c” in your curls.
Today’s hair dryers come with so many options, how can you decide which is the best blow dryer for your money?
Buying the best blow dryer doesn’t have to be complicated. Read on. Here are the questions you want to answer before making your purchase.
1. How often will you use your blow dryer?
While stylists don’t recommend daily blow-drying, sometimes you’ve just got to do it. If daily drying is a must, consider a dryer that uses materials such as ceramic, porcelain, and tourmaline. These materials provide even heating, reducing the chance of burning or melting hair.
In addition, a hair dryer with ionic technology will dry your hair faster, reducing the damage that can be caused by heat tools
2. How long will you keep your hair dryer?
Blow dryers can be the biggest-budget bathroom item we own. And rightly so.
Don’t be afraid to spend more for a hair dryer that will last longer. You’ll save money in the long run.
The best blow dryers are made with higher grade materials, designed specifically for all day use in a salon. These quality products last longer in the home.
Consider this when setting your budget: high-grade quality means you won’t have to replace it next year; even in five years. With that in mind, can you allocate a higher budget?
A happy side effect? The better quality hair dryer will give you a better blowout faster, with less damage to your hair.
3. What type of hair do you have?
Is your hair fine? Thin? Delicate? Over-processed? Consider features that will help your hair dryer protect your tresses as you dry. Ceramic and porcelain hair dryers dry faster, which means less damage to your hair.
Wattage, or, the amount of power available from your hair dryer, is also a consideration related to hair type. Staying between 1800 and 3600 watts is best for hair health and should give you plenty of power to dry those tresses. Look for a hair dryer with as much as 3600 watts of power if your hair is long and thick.
4. What other features do you want in your blow dryer?
As with any product, the best blow dryers come packed with features. A few to consider:
A blow dryer with temperature control helps reduce drying damage and allows you to share one blow dryer between multiple hair textures if you need to. Keeping the temps tailored to your tresses is a must.
A cold blast button is a nice feature that can help “set” your style once your hair is dry.
Finally, ionic hair dryers are the hottest new hair tool out there. Negative ions help cut drying time and seal the hair cuticles, giving you a healthy, bouncy shine in less time. Less time = less damage to your tresses.
On the other hand, positive ions provide more lift and volume by opening the cuticle of the hair. The Karmin Salon Series Ultralight Professional Ionic Hair Dryer provides a choice of positive or negative ions at the touch of a button.
5. Do you need a travel blow dryer?
