Main Types of Hair Dryers


1. Negative ion hair dryer

How it works: Negative ions are released when the hair dryer is turned on. They come in contact with the positive ions on wet hair, and the two ions form a protective coating to lock in moisture.

Advantages: It maintains the ideal moisture content in hair to reduce breakage and prevent frizz.

Recommended usage: Suitable for users with naturally curly or very thick hair.


2. Ceramic hair dryer

How it works: Air is heated by a ceramic heater for gentler and more even heat conduction. A ceramic hair dryer equipped with infrared technology produces a long energy wave to penetrate and dry hair from inside out.

Advantages: It produces airflow with a uniform temperature to avoid overheating.

Recommended usage: Suitable for users with fine or normal hair.


3. Titanium hair dryer

How it works: Air is heated with a titanium heater for more even and stable heat conduction.

Advantages: Dries hair at twice the speed of a normal hair dryer. Keeps hair smooth and soft. Even with thick hair you can dry it fast at home. In addition, this type of hair dryer is light in weight making it easy to hold.

Recommended usage: Suitable for users with thick and dense hair.


What Factors to Consider When Shopping for a Hair Dryer


1. Temperature settings

The temperature of a hair dryer is maintained between 50° and 60° to be most effective and beneficial to hair and scalp. There are mainly three types of power settings: low, medium and high heat. For thin, dry hair, it is better to use low heat or cool air. Users with more hair volume can select a higher temperature setting.


2. Air nozzle design

Diffusion nozzle: It disperses wind from the air duct. There are small holes in the nozzle to reduce wind power and achieve a drying effect. Diffusion nozzle hair dryers can be used to enhance 3D effects and create natural curly hairstyles.

Concentrated nozzle:  It focuses the airflow of the hair dryer and dries hair more evenly. This type is suitable for users with natural curly or straight hair.


3. Flexible design

A retractable handle, with fixed wire attachment ring can be used conveniently at home, and easily stored and used when travelling.


4. Noise

Since a hair dryer relies on a built-in motor to operate, it inevitably emits a noise when switched on. If it creates too much noise, users can opt for silent hair dryers.


5. Hair repair function

Some hair dryers support hair repair using collagen, nano, water ions and other technologies to form a protective coating on the surface of the hair. People who often dye their hair or have fine hair can consider buying this type of hair dryer.


6. Weight

Before buying a hair dryer, consider its weight. Select a lightweight model to make the drying process easy and comfortable.


7. Cord length

There is no fixed standard for the length of the cord. It depends on the needs of the user. If the mains power supply is far away from where the hair is dried, you will need a model that comes with a long cord. It is best to measure the length required to avoid buying a hair dryer with a cord that’s too short.
