A hair dryer is a styling essential anyone who’s serious about having great-looking every day should use. Whether you’re guy or a gal, you’d want to have this nifty tool in your bathroom so you can style your hair to your heart’s content. However, do take note that the results you’ll get will ultimately depend on the dryer you’ll get. As such, see to it that you invest in the right product. Here’s a quick buying guide to help you out.
There are three important factors you must consider when shopping for a hair dryer: power, weight, and the type of hair you have.
How powerful does your hair dryer need to be? The more powerful the dryer is, the faster you can dry your hair. As such, always check the wattage before you settle for a particular dryer. A dryer with wattage of 1,500 watts to 1,800 watts should be good enough. These days, however, even cheap models have a power of at least 2,000 watts.
If you have long hair, it would be wise to get a lightweight dryer. This is also highly advisable if you want to do complicated hair styles. Otherwise, you’ll arm will begin to hurt just after a couple of minutes of styling your hair. Ideally, your hair dryer should weigh around 500 grams. It should also be well-balanced. It if it’s poorly balanced, it will feel heavier. Holding it for long periods of time will be a pain, too. If possible, try to hold the dryer and test it before buying so you can know what using it feels like.
Not all types of blow dryers are suitable for all hair types. Therefore, when shopping for a hair dryer, you must also take into account the kind of hair that you have to avoid causing irreparable damage to your crowning glory.

Everybody knows that when flying or traveling to a different place, you could really make use of every single kilogram that you put in your luggage; hence, it is important that you bring only the necessary stuff with you. But what if you want to bring your bulky hair dryer at home? Everybody wants to look good even when they’re in a foreign land. And, yes, sometimes hotel rooms do get their own dryers and if they actually do, you can’t guarantee its quality. Fortunately, small and compact hair dryers are available in the market for the jetsetters out there.
Why is it important to invest in a hair dryer?
It is safer. When traveling abroad, you’ll need a dual voltage product. Nobody wants to experience short circuit while drying his or her wet hair. It becomes more convenient in return because you won’t have to check all the time for electric transformers or worry if bringing your hair dryer would end up being a waste of baggage space.
It is faster. When you’re used to the hair dryer in your hands, it is obviously faster to style your hair—more time to walk around the city for sightseeing!
What do you have to look for when buying a travel hair dryer?
Voltage is NOT the same everywhere in the world. Europe will have different voltage from the US and Japan, so it is important to take note of dual voltage capability when buying hair dryers.
It has to be lightweight—obviously. Since we’re already talking about saving space here, your next travel dryer must not be heavy. Also, worth noting is its ability to be folded into a tiny bit of piece so it would fit easily in your luggage.
Fighting the frizz. This may not be as important as the other two especially if the sole purpose of it is just for drying, but for people with frizzy hair, it is highly recommended to get a travel dryer that emits negative ions or has tourmaline technology. Even if you don’t have frizzy hair anyway, you will still get a smoother look, so win-win for everyone!
Is it hot enough to dry your hair? The dryer’s heating power is important when you have thicker hair. Even if it checks all three previous points but doesn’t heat fast and strong, then it would still be useless. Check for the heat settings before choosing which travel dryer to buy!

One of the most affordable travel dryers in the market, this Remington beauty in bright red color has three different heat settings and 2-speed settings plus a cool shot. Environment-conscious travelers would be glad to know that this dryer has energy saving “Eco” setting option so while you’re drying your hair beautifully and static-free, you’re also helping Mother Nature.
This dual voltage hair dryer instantly makes it a good buy for those who are always traveling to a different continent. Its NanoIonic Mineral Technology naturally emits negative ions and far infrared energy to moisturize your hair and lock the oils. It’s also portable and good for people with thick and/or frizzy hair.
As mentioned before, dryers with tourmaline technology are recommended for people with frizzy hair. Tourmaline, when heated, releases the negative ions and locks the cuticle layer of the hair. Compared to a non-tourmaline dryer, this foldable gem dries 40% quicker despite its 1000watt capability. It might be important to note that this dryer is a lot quieter than the rest the regular ones so you no worries in disturbing other people.
Compared to tourmaline, ionic dryers work by breaking up the water molecules and allowing these molecules to penetrate the outer layer of the hair, which in return reduces the hair tension when drying so it doesn’t end up frizzy. Don’t confuse it with tourmaline crystals. This dryer has 1875 watts as it is named, so even the cool shot is already super powerful for drying.
This dryer knows what a jetsetter would need and that is a universal charger you could use anywhere in the world. It even comes with a stylish bag where you can put this lightweight and tiny product, so it’s easier to secure in your luggage.

It works pretty much like the Conair hair dryer with its ion technology, except this one actually includes a concentration nozzle, which is a plus for a lot of people. The only downside is that it doesn’t have an adjustable voltage setting so you can only use this in North America or regions with similar voltage.
Its sleek and professional look already makes it stand out from the rest of the list. Unfortunately, this was primarily designed for the Japanese market so use of this product anywhere outside Japan would require a transformer. As the Japanese would design it, this beauty is quiet and lightweight—a mere 370g that is perfect for traveling or even carrying it to the gym with you would not be a stress. Even if it was made for Japan use, a lot of women all over the world still buy this product online because of how powerful it is.
