The Best Hair Dryers For Your Hair Type


Selecting the right hair dryer for your hair type is crucial if you want shiny, healthy locks. We spoke with beauty editor JC from Shop Hair Dryers  in order to find out how to find the best hair dryer for your hair.

High Wattage Is A Must For Long Thick Hair

If you have long, thick or unmanageable hair you’ll want a blow dryer with at least 1800 watts. Any less than that and you may have difficulty straightening and styling your hair. Powerful blow dryers with higher wattage include the T3 Featherweight Luxe (1800 watts), Babyliss Titanium 3000 (1900 watts) and Rusk Speed Freak (2000 watts).

Use A Diffuser For Curly Hair

If you have curly or wavy locks you’ll definitely want to purchase a hair dryer with a diffuser. The diffuser will dry your hair gently and prevent frizzing; it’s generally better to dry curly hair at a lower heat setting. You may also want to consider the DevaCurl dryer which uses a state-of-the-art diffuser in order to dry hair from the inside out while adding lift and volume.

Ionic & Tourmaline Technology

Most modern dryers utilize ionic and tourmaline technology. Ionic dryers reduce static and frizz by drying hair at a rapid pace by breaking down the water molecules. The ions may also work together with your hair products for optimum results. Dryers manufactured with tourmaline dry hair from the inside out resulting in significantly less heat damage.

Other Considerations

Other considerations when choosing a dryer include cord length, noise levels and a cool shot button. A longer cord allows for more freedom of movement while blow drying. Noise levels are also important since some dryers are more loud than others. Consider the Centrix Q Zone if you are looking for a product with a low noise input. A cool shot button is a must for locking in your style and key to a perfect blowout.
