Material: When choosing a hair dryer, it is important to consider your hair type. Thick, frizzy hair will do better with ionic or tourmaline hair dryers. They give off negative ions, which will dry hair faster and reduce frizz. If you have fine or thin hair you should avoid ionic dryers as they won't provide any volume to your hair. It is also important to look for a hair dryer that is ceramic or porcelain, which is good for all hair types (titanium is best if you have a lot of hair)
Power and Weight: Wattage is used to measure how hard and fast a hair dryer's motor works. The higher the wattage the faster your hair will dry. It is best to look for hair dryers that are at least 1500 watts. If your hair is thin or difficult to dry, then look for 1800 to 2000 wattage hair dryers. The weight of the dryer is also important. You need to find a hair dryer with a weight that won't tire out your arm. This can differ for everyone.
Heat Settings: In relation to heat settings, it is useful for a hair dryer to have multiple heat settings that allow you to adjust the heat level. The ideal settings are as follows: fine, thin or dry hair the low setting will work best; for normal hair, use the medium setting; thick or coarse hair needs the highest heat setting.
Extra Features: Some common extra features on hair dryers are additional nozzles and cool setting or cool burst. Cool shot or cool settings allow you to blast a cool wave of air over hair that is roughly 80% dry. This helps to seal the cuticle, resulting in smooth and shiny hair. Nozzles act like diffusers and usually snap onto the end of the dryer. Nozzles help concentrate on certain sections of hair at a time, resulting in less frizz. Make sure that when using a nozzle, you keep it pointed down and do not allow it to have contact with your hair while in use. For super-straight, sleek hair, run a brush through your hair as you dry, and follow the brush with the nozzle.
