A hair dryer is a device not only for drying hair, but also for combing it and creating a beautiful styling. Unfortunately, however, many of these products do not actually function properly.
One of the most important indicators of the high quality of a hair dryer is the compliance of the declared characteristics with reality. In particular, many manufacturers claim that their device can quickly switch to cold air mode, but in fact the air flow turns out to be moderately warm. The difference is great: if this function is not only declared in the characteristics, but is also present in reality, you will be able to style your hair much faster and easier due to the sharp temperature drop.
It is advisable to check the device in the store or read customer reviews to make sure that the characteristics of the hair dryer specified by the manufacturer are not an ordinary marketing ploy.
High-quality hair dryers are completely heat-safe. Since they are intended not only for drying, but also for styling, it is natural that the attachments have to be held very close to the head, and also from time to time you cannot avoid touching the brush elements with your fingers. A really high-quality hair dryer does not heat the air to dangerous temperatures. In addition, its attachments are complemented by special tips that stay cool or warm throughout the entire time of use. If the nozzles overheat, the air turns out to be too hot, and even more so if the air flow falls on your hands during drying and styling, complicating the process of using the device, you are dealing with a low-quality hairdryer.
An important criterion for the quality of a hair dryer is the reliability of the design. The cheaper the model, the higher the risk that it will quickly fail. For example, an ordinary cord without a swivel attachment will often twist, poor-quality fragile attachments will quickly crack. The more accurately and qualitatively the construction is made, the better.
In some low-cost models, the body halves do not fit tightly, and this causes inconvenience when using the device and shortens its service life. Pay attention to these details.
It is very important to clarify what material the brush attachment is made of. Completely plastic elements in this case will be inappropriate, even if we are talking about high quality plastic. Ceramic distributes heat much more evenly, has a softer effect on the hair, and promotes faster hair styling.
An important quality criterion is the presence of the brush reverse function, i.e. the ability to twist the nozzle in different directions. Professional models are usually supplemented with this feature by default. If it is not there, it will be very difficult for owners of long strands to release the hair entangled in the brush, which will have a bad effect on the quality of styling and, of course, will significantly slow down the process itself.
Finally, it is worth paying attention to the convenience of switching the air temperature and blowing speed. If, during styling, you often have to remove the hair dryer from your head in order to feel the slider and switch the mode with your free hand, then the problem is that the hair dryer is not well thought out.
