The hair dryer is a necessary tool for styling
your hair. It is not only used by professional hair stylists
but by ordinary women as well. Hair dryers are a womans friend,
especially on those bad hair days. This seemingly hair friendly
tool, however, does not come with a few warnings. The constant use
of heat to style your hair can cause damage so it is important to
choose the right tool to reduce the damage brought about by thermal
To get a hair dryer, you simply need to go to your nearest department store and look around. There are several options available in the market, at a varying range of prices.
You can get hair dryers for less than $20 at almost any store. Inexpensive hair dryers may seem tempting because of the savings you get, however, you should keep in mind that these styling tools may cost you more in the long run due to hair damage. If you do get an inexpensive hair dryer, try not to use it all the time to avoid too much damage.
- Moderately Priced Hair Dryers
Moderately priced hair dryers range between $25 - $50. These hair dryers are recommended for use on a regular basis. Most moderately priced dryers feature multiple heat settings as well as a cool blast feature for curling hair.
Professional hair dryers range from $50 up. These styling tools are only available through professional catalogues or at beauty supply stores and are designed for regular use by professional hair stylists. Professional hair dryers cause minimal damage and may be great for home use if you are willing to shell out the cash.
The price of hair dryers should not be the only consideration when selecting this hair styling tool. Some other things you need to consider are:
Do you use a hair dryer regularly? If you do, you should choose a good quality hair dryer, particularly one that is durable and can withstand constant use. This type of hair dryer may be a bit on the expensive side but will benefit you in the long run. If you don’t dry your hair regularly, then a moderately priced hair dryer is suitable.
If you travel frequently and use a hair dryer regularly, then the portability of the hair dryer is a huge consideration. There are folding hair dryers available in the market; however, you should remember that these types of dryers are generally less powerful.
The higher the wattage of the hair dryer, the more powerful it usually is. If you use hair dryers regularly, invest in one that gives more better airflow and more powerful heat. A minimum of 1750 watts is recommended.
The type of hair you will use the hair dryer on is important. You should get a hair dryer with the right tools and attachments for your type of hair. As an example, if you have curly hair, select a hair dryer with a diffuser attachment.
