Looking for a good quality hair dryer? At Salontotal.co.uk you will find a large selection. How do you choose the hair dryer that suits you best? Find out for yourself what you are looking for in the device. For example, if you do not have an electrical outlet nearby, then you should pay close attention to the length of the cable. Also, the blowing power is a factor that is very important, because this determines how fast your hair dries. With a hairdryer from our range, your hair will dry beautifully shiny and you will have little work to do!
Purpose of the hair dryer
For drying your hair, basically any hair dryer is suitable. What you need to take into account, for example, is your hair thickness. Depending on that, you choose a mild or strong device. There are also a number of factors that come into play when styling your hair. Do you want to style your hair precisely with a blow dryer? Then it is useful to have a narrow blow nozzle. Want to dry curly hair beautifully? Then use a diffuser. This ensures that your hair dries more naturally. If you suffer from dry and frizzy hair, choose a hair dryer with ionic technology. The negative ions make the hair less likely to dry out. Instead, with sensitive or dyed hair, look for a ceramic hair dryer. With these, the heat is distributed evenly throughout the hair, so no strands get overheated. Just goes to show how many factors can come into play!
Frequency of use of hair dryer
Depending on how often you are going to use the hair dryer, we recommend one with an AC or DC motor. If you are going to use it almost daily, buy one with an AC motor. This will protect your hair and prevent dryness and frizz. This is important because the hair has little time to recover if it is blow-dried daily. Also, an AC motor has a longer lifespan. Do you use the device less often? Then choose a DC motor. This is somewhat lower in price, smaller in size and is lighter in weight. This is very convenient to take on trips, for example.
Frequently asked questions about a hair dryer
What is a good hair dryer?
That depends entirely on your hair type and preferences. For example, do you want to blow dry your hair daily? Then go for a hair dryer with an AC motor. This protects your hair and prevents dryness and frizz. Do you use the hair dryer occasionally? Then choose a DC-motor. This is a little lower in price, smaller in size and is lighter in weight.
How do you blow dry your hair?
Start with towel-dried hair and use heat protection. Then comb your hair thoroughly and divide it into several sections. With thick hair this can be three or four, with thinner hair two. Then start drying at the bottom and slowly grab pieces of your hair each time. You can use a brush or comb to do this more controlled.
Which hair dryer for curls?
Basically, you can use any hair dryer for your curls, as long as it comes with a diffuser. This allows you to dry your hair naturally, without tangling that beautiful bunch of curls. It also prevents dry and frizzy hair.
Buying a hair dryer: what should you pay attention to?
When buying a hair dryer, pay attention to its power and special features. Employees in the hair industry recommend such a minimum wattage of 1750. This is fine for most hair types. If you have very thick hair, buy one with 1900 or 2000 watts. Then you will have a faster drying time. Furthermore, a hair dryer can have ionic and ceramic functions. The former prevents drying and the latter distributes the heat more evenly over your head.
How hot does a hair dryer get?
A hair dryer can reach temperatures as high as 100 degrees. Of course, this depends entirely on the setting you put the device in. To minimize damage to your hair, we recommend the lowest temperature possible. This only makes your hair less quickly dry.
