The right blow dryer can help you achieve professional-looking results at home, whether your goal is smooth and voluminous or curly and natural. However, you have to be careful not to fry your hair with high heat settings or overusing products that are heavy on the heat.
To reduce the damage caused by the intense heat of a blow dryer, you can use protective styling products such as a heat protectant spray or Bumble and bumble’s Invisible Oil Heat & UV Protective Primer. You can also section your hair to dry it more evenly and use attachments that match your hair style (like a diffuser for curly hair).
A blow dryer works by pushing air across a heating coil, which causes it to warm up. Then, the dryer uses an electric fan to blow this warm air onto wet hair. A good quality blow dryer will have multiple temperature and speed settings so you can adjust the drying time to your specific hair type.
You’ll also want to consider whether you want a full-cold setting. The cold setting on a hair dryer doesn’t turn on the heating coils and only puts out a small amount of heat, but this can be too much for certain types of hair.
Lastly, pay attention to the wattage of the blow dryer you choose. Higher wattage dryers offer more power and can dry hair faster. blow dryers
