Today, I’m going to tell you how to choose the best blow-dryer. From this entry you’ll learn what kind of device you should use with what hair and scalp type. Also, you will learn the blow-dryer related terms that all hair-maniacs should know. Enjoy the reading!
What a good blow-dryer should have?
The power of engine is of great importance while making hair dry. We distinguish two kinds of engines: AC and DC. The first one has greater power and, what is connected with that, the pace of drying is faster. AC engines are heavier and big therefore its more difficult to hold in a hand a device featuring such a motor. DC engines have less power and slower pace of drying. However, the blow-dryers which feature this kind of a motor are small and don’t weigh much. And the size and weight of the device translate into the convenience of use.
For many hair-maniacs, including me, all the gadgets that a blow-dryer goes with are crucial. These additional equipment are the heads accelerating hair drying, hair straightening nozzles, air concentrators or brushes that style hair during blow drying. It can’t be denied, such gadgets facilitate the procedure of making hair dry and setting it, they save up our time and enable to shape the strands the way we want to.
Modern blow-dryers have plenty of settings which facilitate hair drying. Currently, these are titanium, ceramic and tourmaline technologies that are implemented to the devices. The main task of such items is to protect hair and scalp against damages and scalds. Blow-dryers from the 21th century also go with ionization function that prevents frizz, the stream of cool air that closes hair cuticles as well as the option of temperature control.
Blow-dryer vs. hair and scalp type
You will take care of dry hair best if you use blow-dryers with a tourmaline heater. Thanks to this, your strands will become more moisturized and elastic. Is your hair greasy? Buy a regular blow-dryer without ionization function and tourmaline technology. Your hair doesn’t need moisturisation any longer but a healing shampoo and preparations limiting sebum production.
Blow dry normal hair of proper structure, which is closed hair cuticles, using the devices that feature temperature control option, ionization function and ceramic technology. Are your strands curly or wavy? Use a blow-dryer that features a diffusor that will define the curve of your hair. It’s also worth thinking about a device that is equipped with tourmaline technology and ionization function.
While choosing a blow-dryer there are also other aspects playing an important role. Are you planning vacation? Choose a blow-dryer with DC engine – it’s lighter and occupies less space in a bag. If you want to save up money, buy a device featuring a small engine as well. However, if you like spending money on cosmetic gadgets, reach for a big blow-dryer with AC engine. This will provide you with greater power of hair drying.
I hope you will find my pieces of advice useful during your blow-drying purchase.
