If you’re shopping for a good hair dryer for your hair, make sure you look for a good one for your hair type. Not all hair dryers are created equal, and none work well for all hair types. So the right dryer for your hair will help you have the healthy, silky, beautiful hair with bounce and life.
The same rule follows though with dryers: make sure to find the right power level to keep heat to medium to low. Also, always be sure to keep the dryer at least 6 inches away from your hair when blow drying it, and make sure to not blow dry hair for long periods of time.
Below are a few blow dryers to consider using for your hair type. All of them are inexpensive but effective:
Infinity Pro by Conair AC Motor Styling Tool
Best used on: Thick and Frizz-Prone Hair
If you have thick hair, your hair may take longer to dry since water and moisture are bundled together. So if your hair takes an hour or so to dry, this 1,875-watt dryer manages to help dry your hair in a much shorter period of time. This dryer differentiates itself from other dryers due to the negatively charged ions it emits, which shrinks water molecules for fast drying while sealing the cuticle for frizz-free shine.
Turbo Power MegaTurbo 2500
Best used on: Fine and Long Hair
A well-made nonionic dryer is good for adding volume to your hair, which this dryer is good for if you have fine long hair. For this dryer, you want to use a low-speed cool air until hair is 80% dry. You can then switch to warm to style your hair, then switch to cool for the final touches.
Hot Tools Professional Ionic Anti-Static 1000-Watt Hot Air Brush
Best used on: Fine and Short Hair
This easy to use tool allows you to dry your hair and style at the same time, which allows you to save time. This hot air brush is most effective for short hair since it has low power, and helps to add fullness for your hair.
