Waiting for your hair to dry naturally only is not comfortable. Who has time for it? We really haven't, we've checked out the best hair dryers, which help tame and dry the hair quickly.
Hair dryers have come a long way in recent times. If you haven't used one at a time, or you're stuck to the cheapest you could find, you'll be surprised. The most important decision for you here is whether to go with an ionic or nonionic hair dryer.
Lots of claims are made about "ionic" products, but ionic hair dryers definitely have one thing for them. They release negative ions that interact with the water molecules on your hair which accelerates drying. Because your hair dries faster, you can use the hair dryer for less time, which in turn means less heat damage.
A complaint that people have about ionic hair dryers is that they do not provide the same voluminous effect that you get from a traditional dryer. If you want more volume in your hair, there is still a need for a nonionic hair dryer so we've checked out a large hair dryer that does both.
Here is our choice of the best hair windows available. [1
It is not often we can guarantee that something will keep you a decade of extensive use, but that is the case with BIO IONIC Powerlight Pro-Dryer. ReviewGeek's editor, Jason Fitzpatrick, and his wife swear: they've had one for 10 years (and count) with regular use a few times a day. $ 20 a year sounds like a bargain for us.
The device offers 1875w of powerful airflow with conditioned nanotubes that accelerate drying and promote shiny, soft and hydrated hair. It's a lightweight model anyway, but you don't have to worry about keeping it as long as it's pretty fast when it comes to drying your hair. Several settings are also available for heat and speed, plus you can control how much power to use. Together with different hair thickness and different lengths, it means that you may not always want the most powerful setting.
Best Premium Choice: Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer ($ 400)
As a vacuum cleaner, Dyson knows how to make a large hair dryer, but (like a vacuum cleaner) you pay for the privilege. Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer is quirky, yet incredibly effective. The engine generates 3.5 kPa pressure which drives 13 liters of air up to the amplifier every second. It means the fastest drying time you have ever experienced, but it can also be super quiet as well. Clearly, they took a little of the vacuuming magic and applied it elsewhere.
Other features include the ability to measure the air temperature 20 times every second so that the heat is maintained exactly. There is a choice of four heat settings, including 212F quick drying and styling, 176F regular drying, 140F mild drying and 82F cold shot to set your hair after styling it. 3 speed settings also help you maintain control. It is a very effective premium product.
Best for Styling: T3 Cura Luxe Hairdryer ($ 285)
A good hair dryer is used not only to dry the hair but helps you to steal it exactly how you like it. T3 Cura Luxe Hair Dryer is a good universal device. It offers a powerful airflow that promises to dry your hair faster than most, as well as a variety of settings to get things just like you like them. 5 heat settings are offered along with a volume booster switch to increase the texture and volume of your hair. There is also an automatic pause sensor, so when you release the drying handle, the air flow is paused until you select it again.
2 speed settings mean you have great control here too with separate drying concentrators and styling concentrators so you can focus on one section at a time with the air flow from the dryer.
Best Touchscreen Controls: Chi Touch 2 Touch Screen Hairdryer ($ 200)
Not many hair dryers use a touch screen for their controls, but Chi Touch 2 Touch Screen Hair Dryer embraces it with enthusiasm. Its 2.4 inch touch screen is a new change from traditional buttons, plus it has a speedometer so you can adjust the speed, temperature and ion output exactly how you like it. The controls are laid out as discs so you change the settings with a fingerprint, just as if you were using an app on your phone.
1875 watts means it's pretty powerful, plus there's the possibility of a cool shot of air rather than just hot. It is suitably flexible so.
Best for nonionic and ionic: Harry Josh Pro Dryer 2000 ($ 300)
Harry Josh Pro Dryer 2000 is not cheap but it is because it has a dual purpose. It is possible to set this on either ionic or non-ionic air which means that it is ideal for the times you want stylish locks and for those times you want a lot of volume in your hair.
In addition, it is easy and easy to grasp design, with lower sound levels than most. It's also super fast so you don't have to spend ages drying your hair every morning and evening. It is thanks to its 1875 watts engine and the ability to blow air at 80mph. And of course there is a cold shot button for the more sensitive moments.
Best Budget Options: Conair Infiniti Pro 1875 Watt Salon Performance Dryer ($ 31)
You may not want to spend hundreds of dollars on a hair dryer and we understand it. In that case, Conair Infiniti Pro buys 1875 Watt Salon Performance Dryer. It is still an ion hair dryer with an 1875 watt engine, it lacks only some of the finer features that more expensive alternatives provide.
There is still room for 3 heating settings and 2 speed settings and a cool option. There is a concentrator plus a diffuser, so you get pretty good value for money. It's small too, so it's easy to store.
