Best Blow Dryer for Black Hair
A hair dryer can be a girl’s best friend … or their worst enemy.
With the power to transform our locks to smooth-as-silk or a full bodied ‘fro, or send them spiralling into a brittle frizz, what makes a good hair dryer?
The more powerful the dryer, the quicker it dries hair, which, in turn, leads to less risk of damaging delicate black hair. Look for a dryer with a wattage in excess of 1500 to ensure efficiency and effectiveness.
Ceramic and tourmaline technology
Controlling and distributing the heat is the job of a dryer that includes ceramic technology,making this a great choice for fine, dry hair. Tourmaline, by releasing ions, combats frizzy hair , leaving it feeling beautifully moisturized.
This little miracle allows a blast of cold hair to set your style in place. Ideal for ringlet spirals, or a smooth sheen of silken hair, press the button and the cold air hit will enable the hair shafts to hold that style.
Plenty of settings
With variable heat settings, it allows you to select the best one for your particular hair type. The higher settings are great for removing the majority of dampness, drying rapidly before any damage occurs. Then concentrate on styling with a gentle medium to low heat setting.
Choose a hair dryer that is comfortable to hold and isn’t too heavy. If you have thick, black hair, you may be there for a while.
Your hair dryer should include a choice of attachments. At the very minimum, a directional nozzle to target particular areas, and a heat diffuser to spread out the air flow should be included in the carton.
My favorite hair dryer is the JINRI 1875W Professional Salon Grade Hair Dryer:
It has everything I want – plenty of power, tourmaline technology to cope with frizz, diffuser and nozzle attachments and it’s lightweight enough to pop in my bag for weekends away. Along with plenty of heat settings and a cold button, it’s everything I want in a dryer, and I’d recommend it to anyone.
