There was a time when choosing a hair-dryer wasn’t so complicated, as there were so few products that you could count on the fingers of your hands. But in 2018 it’s fine to feel confused when you’re looking at hundreds and hundreds of products, not knowing which one is the best.
We’ve made a list to help you know what you need according to your hair type. Here’s what you’re going to look at when you browse some items.
“There was a time when choosing a

so few products that you could count on
the fingers of your hands.”
We’re starting with prices, because it’s important to know first how much you’re going to pay for a good hair-dryer.
Considering you’re not going to purchase a hair-dryer too often, it’s best to invest into an item that will not only do its job, but it will also last you for years.
The best hair dryers come at high prices: $350 – $400 – and they’re used by professional hairstylists around the world.
Save over $100 to invest in a great hair with less arm soreness and no frizz and it be worth your money.
2.The Power is Very Important
A powerful motor that comes with a high-wattage will have more wind power and will not heat your hair too much.
Look for a hair-dryer that has a wattage of 1800-2000.
If your hair takes an eternity to dry, then you really need a high-wattage hair-dryer.
3.Types of Hair-Dryers
*Ionic / Tourmaline
An ionic dryer will be more effective in drying the hair without making it frizzy. It makes the hair have a more finished look.
Tourmaline is the upgraded version of the ionic hair-dryer and thus, it’s a more expensive product.
If you have a frizzy or thick hair and it’s very difficult to dry it, then you need either a hair-dryer with either ionic or tourmaline feature.
If you have a flat or oily hair, don’t use an ionic hair-dryer and don’t over-dry the hair. This will let your hair get more volume and texture.
*Ceramic, Porcelain or Infrared?
There are hair-dryers that have the interior coated with either ceramic or porcelain. They will keep the metal or plastic overheating and the temperature of the dryer will be more constant.
The infrared dryer uses energy wavelengths that will dry the hair from the inside.
All of these features benefit every hair type.
Titanium will do the same job as ceramic, but it’s more light-weight. So, if you’re taking centuries to dry your hair and you don’t want to have sore arms after it, choose this type of hair-dryer.
The titanium feature is not recommended for damaged hair, as it can get to high levels of temperature. If your hair is like a mane and it’s not damaged, then it’s a must-have.
Weight is important if you have a long hair or a type of hair that will take centuries to dry. If you spend about 20 minutes to dry your hair, then look for a light dryer so that your arm won’t go numb halfway through. It should weight about a pound.
5.Other Small But Important Features
A button for cold air is always welcome and it will make your hair shiny, completing the look.
There should be a button to adjust the heat.
If the hair-dryer comes with accessories and it fits your needs, then take it! It should have a diffuser for curls or a nozzle that will help you keep the hair straight and frizz-free.
These tips should help you find the perfect hair-dryer for your type of hair. All you have to do is pay attention to all details and your hair will be thankful.
