Not happy with how your hair looks? There’s a good chance it’s your hair dryer’s fault, with poor ones leaving your hair with static and/or frizz, as well as being noisy, slow and cumbersome to use. According to top hair stylists, a good dryer should have a minimum wattage of 1800 and have different heat settings and a cold shot button to set shape and volume.
Consider whether you mind using a heavier dryer (this can depend on how long it takes you to dry your hair) and frizzy hair sufferers should look out for narrow nozzles so your hair doesn’t blow around too much. Sliding switches can be tricky to use if they stick, while rocker switches are easier to use but can be accidentally turned on as you hold the handle. If you want to create a range of styles or if you have complex hair, professional-style dryers are better.
For best results, point the airflow down the shaft of the hair and use a nozzle, particularly if you have fine hair, so you can add lift at the roots to give it volume. Never over dry your hair, instead drying it slowly and carefully. Consider a dryer with ionic technology, which conditions hair, reduces frizz and improves shine using negatively charged ions, which are produced by passing air over an electric current.
This Italian brand has been favoured by professional hairdressers since the 1970s, having won multiple awards for quality and design of build during the decades since. This dryer, which comes in various colours, has a heat-proof body, ergonomic design and a long-lasting motor, as well as a wide range of easy-to-reach temperature controls. It’s one of the quietest and lightest dryers we’ve ever used and great for quick and gentle drying.
This has an eye-watering price tag, but it’s the Dom Pérignon of hair dryers, drying hair in half the usual time and leaving it so shiny and smooth that many people who use straighteners will find they have no need. Like its fancy hand-dryers, Dyson combines ultra-powerful, directed airflow with a heat-protection sensor, which is good news for the longevity of your hair. It’s simple to use and quiet too.
This is a bargain for a lightweight machine that dries even long locks relatively quickly, but without damaging hair by overheating it. Indeed, even on the highest setting, it’s not quite as hot as other hair dryers even on their mid-range setting. It’s got a long cord and comes with handy diffusers and curlers for boosting naturally flat hair, but it doesn’t have quite the blast of some others in this roundup.
This claims to infuse 1,000 times more moisture into hair than typical ion hair dryers, as well as adding volume, minimizing frizz and reducing damage. We found it lives up to all these claims, with dry hair looking less brittle and greasy hair looking less oily, to leave a glossy look which lasts longer than with other hair dryers. It’s by no means the lightest in our roundup, though.
This only just falls short of salon standard, with its 2200W motor and lightweight body. It’s got more power and heat than most, which is good for taming frizz and for a sleeker, straighter look. It’s comfortable to hold too, with anti-slip and anti-burn strips. And the cold shot button – pretty standard nowadays – is nice and easy to reach for those final fixing moments. Available in black or white.
