Drying With Style
What is the best hair dryer?
The best hair dryer for you is a salon-standard blow dryer that you find easy to use, doesn’t damage your hair and suits your budget. When it comes to results, performance and handling, hairdressing gurus rate the following blow dryers highly. Of course we tend to agree…

What to look for in a good hair dryer
Variable speed and temperature settings allow you to adjust the hairdryer to suit your hair type and minimise damage. Unless you’re a bodybuilder, a lightweight design with a long cord for ease of use is important and a choice of nozzle attachments for directing airflow allows for precision styling. Your blow dryer should be comfortable to hold and easy to use.
Ceramic technology distributes heat evenly while Tourmaline is a mineral which seals the cuticle, retaining moisture and smoothing the hair shaft. Ionic blow dryers dry your hair more quickly which means less heat damage while creating less static which reduces frizz.
How to use a hair dryer
To avoid damaging your hair you should always use a heat protectant before blow drying. It is important to select the appropriate heat setting for your hair type, which is a lower temperature for fine, fragile or damaged hair and a hotter setting for strong, thick hair.
A cool shot setting sets your style, cooling down the hair shaft, taming fly-aways and locking your ‘do’ into place.
How to style hair with a hair dryer
Apply heat protectant to damp hair before drying. You can create different looks with your hair dryer, from natural waves to sleek and straight. For a messy, windswept style tousle hair with your fingers and keep the hair dryer moving, or roll a large brush through sections for a sleek straight finish. Add a diffuser attachment for a soft, natural or wavy look and a nozzle attachment for precision styling.
