In a perfect world we would all get perfect hair like that of supermodels every day. But, for most of us, it is a lot of work with our hair dryers - so it is important to make sure youre using the right one. Not all heat tools are created equal and its not always easy to know which is best for your blow and which ones can damage your hair. How do you know if your locks require an ion or a tourmaline? Which will give you the volume youre looking for? I have navigated the essential questions you may have with my years of experience with the good, the bad and the ugly.
When buying a hair dryer, you need to look into the heating process of the product. Most of the cheaper products in the market rely on plastic or metal heating elements. The heat from these materials are often very hard to control and can spike up so much that they leave the hair dry inside and out. Another disadvantage to plastic and metal heated hair dryers is that they can cause the hair to heat up too much causing the hair to get brittle and therefore increase the amount of breakage and damage. Hair may indeed be composed of keratin cells, but it doesnt mean that it will stand such abuse from overly heated hair styling tools. If you allow your hair to get damaged in that manner, you can be certain that no amount of conditioning can bring it back, youll just have to wait till you grow it back again.
Since many of us are constantly on the go, whether it be traveling for our job, traveling for pleasure, or even working out at the gym, the desire is to have a dryer that is specifically designed for travel, or one that will serve a dual purpose. This category opens up an entire new spectrum of things to be taken into consideration. Does your travel take you into other countries? If so, you will need a dual voltage dryer and the appropriate adapter plug designed for use in the particular country you are visiting. Here again, weight can be an issue with the new weight restrictions put on baggage as well as how much space will the dryer take up? There are many foldable travel dryers now available that are lightweight and compact so this shouldnt be an issue. These are also very popular for those who just want to keep a dryer in their gym bag for when they work out.
Once you have answers to these questions, it makes it much easier to weed through the vast assortment of hair dryers that you can choose from. However, whether your hair is damaged or not, always be certain that the dryer you select has ceramic and ionic technology. Why? These technologies are important in the drying process. In a nutshell, ionic technology helps evaporate the water quickly from your hair. Ceramic technology results in even heat distribution across the hair and eliminates damaging hot spots while using the dryer. The negative ions that are created break down the water drops into tiny particles that are absorbed into the hair shaft, and the drying time is reduced considerably. The end result is less damage to your hair and more hydration for shiny, healthy hair.
