A good quality blow dryer will not only help you style your hair; it will also ensure your hair is less damaged after every blow dry. Here are some tips to help you with your purchase.
The power – Look at a dryer that has at least 1800 watts. For thicker hair, look at a hair dryer with at least 3600 watts.
Ceramic and Tourmaline – For smooth hair, you need ceramic and tourmaline technology. Ceramic technology will help you control the heat on your blow dryer and help to distribute heat evenly. Tourmaline, on the other hand, will help to smooth out and seal cuticles to help your hair retain moisture.
A cool shot button – To set a style, the cool shot button is key. The cool shot button works best with a round brush and will reduce frizz and set your hair almost immediately.
Attachments – Different nozzles will help you concentrate the air flow as you blow dry. A diffuser can be great for curly hair, while a smaller nozzle is great for sleeker styles.
Heat and power controls – Controlling the heat will help you dry out your hair less. Look at higher heat when your hair is wet and switch to a lower heat when your hair is 90% dry.
A good quality hair dryer does not have to be expensive. Look at purchasing one from a reputed retail store but always check for a warranty of at least one year.
