Hair Dryer Features to Look ForOn November 15, 2020 by Charlestoneblog
My drawers have several hair dryer attachments rolling around in them. These days, hair dryers come with many attachments & features. But what should you look for?
This helps set & lock your hair in place. Multiple heat & speed settings. Most people use only one setting. But you’ll get better results for different hairstyles if you learn the best speed & temperature for the styles you want.
Diffusers & nozzles
Don’t be like me & leave your nozzles to roll around in your cast-off drawer. Diffusers give flat hair a lift. Nozzles direct the heat where you want it. Narrow nozzles are great for straight hair.
Ionic dryers. Hate static?
Ionic dryers cut down on static by producing negative ions that reduce the size of water droplets & seal moisture into the hair shaft. This leaves hair looking sleek, not frizzy.
Is Blow-Drying Bad for Hair?
Yes. Overdrying the hair causes strands to dry out and break. Your best bet is to blowdry your hair 80 percent dry, and let the rest dry naturally. When you can, you should skip the blowdryer altogether.
