What can I do with a hair dryer?

The standard hair dryer transforms room temperature air into hot air by pushing it through vents. If you’re a no-fuss type of person who requires their hair dried quickly, this standard type of hair dryer (pictured, below) will be suitable for you. For those seeking a more advanced hair dryer, there are other types which will also style your hair.

Hot air brushes

  • Hot air curling brush: Hot air curling brushes are round barrels that simultaneously dry your hair while brushing and detangling. You can use a hot airbrush to create hairstyles such as bouncy waves and ultimately cut down your preparation time in half.
  • Hot air straightening brush: A hot air straightening brush appears at first glance to be a standard hairbrush, but is heated – comb through your hair to dry and make it straight and sleek.

Some extra features

For minimal hair damage, your best option is to select a hair dryer with a diffuser. A diffuser is an attachment that you connect to the hair dryer, which disperses the air, instead of blowing it onto one concentrated area. A diffuser is thought to cause less damage and be suitable for thicker hair, but it might take longer than usual.

You can find hair dryers large enough to tackle thick sections of hair or compact enough to take travelling with you. Some come with storage cases to keep your hair dryer safe and secure.

Ultimately, the hair dryer you select and the hair care products you use in conjunction with your styling process can make the difference between whether you end up with frizzy or sleek hair.
