Have you considered trading in your regular hair dryer for a cordless one? For many women (and some men), using an electric hair dryer after showering is part of their normal routine. Not only are hair dryers effective for removing unwanted moisture from hair, but they also help when shaping and styling a certain look. Hair dryers were first invented in the early 1920’s and the general construction has remained the same ever since. While today’s hair dryers are certainly more powerful and stylish, they operate using the same basic technology as when they were first invented. Most hair dryers receive the energy to operate by plugging into a wall outlet. However, seeing as most hair dryers are used in the bathroom around showers and bathtubs, using a standard wall hair dryer can be dangerous if care is not taken. To ensure that the risk of electrocution is as minimal as possible, many companies produce cordless hair dryers which run on rechargeable batteries rather than plugging into the wall. Not only are cordless hair dryers safer than the conventional models, but they are also usually smaller and lighter for travel purposes. As long as the consumer charges the battery packs in advance, they should have enough power to blow dry their hair several times while on vacation or on a business trip.
Most cordless hair dryers have the same drying power when compared to conventional models meaning that they work just as well. The average hair dryer has a wattage of 1600, which should be perfect for drying unless your hair is thicker than average. Most hair dryer producers, such as Revlon, Conair, and Vidal Sassoon, make cordless models which work just as well as the models that need to be plugged in. Cordless hair dryers can be purchased anywhere that sells regular hair dryers, such as Walmart or Target. If you’re searching for a high-end model, the best place to look is usually online in order to find the product you want at a reasonable price. Talking to hair dressers or other people who use hair dryers regularly can also give you insight into which brands work well and will hold up to daily use.
