There are many options to consider when choosing a professional hair dryer. Keeping your hair healthy can be a challenge, so investing in a good hair dryer will take you a long way. It is difficult to find the best hair dryers, because there are so many options, some of which are knockoffs. You need to focus on key aspects in order to find one that is right for you.
Ceramic heating is the standard and the safest for your hair. Ceramic dryers produce far infrared heat, which means that it enters your hair and heats it safely from the inside, rather than from the outside in.
Ionic dryers help trap moisture and eliminate frizz by producing negatively charged ions. These have proved to dry hair faster and make it look smoother. Tourmaline dryers also produce negative ions and dry your hair even more quickly, with professional results.
The more settings there are the more control you have over your hair. On some hair dryers, you can set it to certain temperatures. In addition to heat, many professional hair dryers have a cool option that is useful for finishing styles and can even be used on light hair products.
Diffusers and concentrators are useful for varying your style. A diffuser will add volume to your hair by drying it in natural waves, and a concentrator will target the heat and give you enough control to smoothly blow out your hair.
If your desired hair dryer has the above features among other aspects like, good wattage and manageable weight, the brand may not be a deal breaker. But, if you do your research you’ll find that brand name hair dryers are the ones with the best reviews and results. You’ll want to check out BaByliss, Elchim, Solia, T3, Solano, Hot Tools, Revlon, Conair, Farouk, and FHI. These are top notch selling brands and are used by hairdressers and salons worldwide.
