5 things you need to keep in mind when buying a Blow Dryer
Buying a blow dryer can be a tough decision, often requiring a lot of time and research. Choosing the wrong one can make your hair dry, brittle, and lifeless. That is why it’s important to choose a blow dryer that is ideal for the texture of your hair and what the hairdryer has to offer you.
When it comes to buying a blow dryer, it is always better to buy a high-quality tool that’s right for your hair type that may make a significant difference in how your hair feels and looks, along with the overall health of the hair.
To get started, here are a few things you must tick off your list before finding a suitable blow dryer for you.
1. The Power (Dryer Output)
Of course, the first thing you need to look for in a hair dryer is the power. Why? Because the dryers that produce a greater output tend to dry hair faster. Ideally, look for a blow dryer with 1800 watts or higher. With technology these days, there are dryers that are under 1900 watts but produce greater output (wind speed) than 2200+ watts dryers.
While professional blow dryers mean a higher investment, they also mean a reduction of up to 50% of the time used to blow-dry your hair (or your clients’ hair); and of course, less time also means less hair damage.
2. Ceramic/tourmaline ion technology
If you want smooth and shiny results you should look for a dryer with ceramic/tourmaline ion technology. Why? Because these 3 elements are key for smoother, shinier hair.
Ceramic technology allows you to control and distribute the heat more evenly. Tournaline, on the other hand provides with minerals that seal the cuticle allowing the hair to remain moisturized. Finally, ions disperse water and reduce frizz.
3. Size and weight
Many people believe that a bigger blow dryer is better for professional results. However, spending long hours using one of these will exhaust you more and can even strain your shoulders and back, causing injuries and pain.
There are incredible options of small and compact blow dryers with high power that can help you achieve the results you expect, while taking care of you.
4. Heat, speed and power controls!
Look for a blow that allows you control the power and heat your will use in every step of the process. A good blow dryer lets you change the settings depending on the type of hair and results you want to get.
5. Attachments and accessories
A key factor that some people forget to consider when choosing a blow dryers is the nozzle attachment. This key accessory allows you to concentrate the air flow, so the air is blown directly on the area you are working on.
On the other hand, with curly hair a diffuser is more effective to spread out the air flow and get a natural and smooth look.
