Hair dryers are essential tools not only for people who want to keep their hair stylish after every shower, but also for those who want to speed up the drying process and use the device for other practical purposes. With the many different types of hair dryers available in the market, finding one that will best suit your needs should not be difficult.
A standard 220 volt DC dryer is a good choice for those who are looking for a lightweight, high-performance device for everyday use. Salon-performance AC dryers, on the other hand, are generally more powerful, with greater airflow, which helps dry hair much quicker. AC motor hair dryers are typically heavier than DC dryers, simply because they are larger and have powerful motors. Because of their robust size and design, they also tend to have longer life.
Diffuser attachment dryers are the best choice for people who want to enhance their natural curls. The diffuser attachment does as its name implies—diffuses the airflow to gently dry the curls instead of blowing them out to a frizzy frenzy. Travel hair dryers are designed for portability. They are lightweight and they often come with foldable handles to save space in storage.
Hair dryers also come in three major configurations—ionic, tourmaline, and ceramic. Ionic dryers break down water molecules, thus allowing hair to dry faster. Additionally these devices allow moisture to penetrate more deeply so that your hair can maintain moisture inside. Ions help neutralize positive charges in your hair, restoring shine, and keeping hair better conditioned. Tourmaline dryers have a gemstone coating, which contain minerals that emit negative ions that make hair shinier. Finally, ceramic dryers use a unique technology that dries hair from the inside out, without using high heat. Its mild heat prevents hair damage.
