Three Things to Consider Before Buying a Hair Dryer

There’s more to a hair dryer than just its ability to blow hot air.

Drying your hair doesn’t need to be a difficult process. If you have the right hair dryer, then drying your mop should be a breeze (no pun intended). Hair dryers are not made equally, however, so you want your dryer to have certain features to make your life easier. The three we suggest keeping your eye out for are a powerful motor, lightweight, a quick dry.

Powerful Motor

Feel like you’re at a salon getting your hair done when you’ve got a hair dryer that features a powerful motor. Look for one that has upwards of a 2200W DC motor for the ultimate experience in quick dry and airflow that is consistently powerful enough to get your hair dry in no time.

Lightweight

No one wants to hold up a heavy hair dryer while blowing their hair dry. That is bound to get tiresome after just a few minutes. Rather, you want one that is lightweight for both use and storage.

Quick Dry

Having a hair dryer that takes a while to dry your hair seems to defeat the purpose of having a hair dryer in the first place, doesn’t it? So, don’t waste your money on something that’s going to take a while to dry. Instead look for a hair dryer that will get the job done quickly and efficiently, while also keeping your hair safe and healthy.
