Top 10 Hair Dryers of 2018

Leaving home with wet hair on a consistent basis has proven to be equally as damaging as using heat. With the summer months approaching the search for the right hair care products to maintain strong and healthy hair during the season has risen significantly. After thoroughly washing, choosing the right type of blow dryer is just as important to the hair care process in maintaining its sustainability. There are four different types of hair dryer’s ceramic, porcelain, titanium and ionic to consider. Finding the right hair dryer depends on many factors, two of the most important are budget and hair type.

The titanium hair dryer is ideal for thicker hair that can sustain higher levels of heat and lessens the drying time. For thin and dry hair, a ceramic or porcelain dryer works because of its infrared that evenly and gently distributes heat to the hair. The ionic dryer uses ionic technology to enhance the hair’s natural shine. No matter the dryer type, be sure to choose a dryer with higher wattage. With higher wattage the air will blow faster making for shorter drying time and reducing the risk of heart damage. Finding the right blow dryer may be a bit of a challenge especially to someone that’s not familiar with doing their own hair that often.
