What to look for in a Blowdryer

Finding professional-quality blow dryers doesn't have to break the bank, there are many great blow dryers on the market and you can definitely get professional ones anywhere between $70-150.

The perfect blow dryer for you depends on what you're willing to spend, but my all-time favorite is, Elchim

Does a good blow dryer really matter? That is the question, isn't it?

In the world of beauty, the drugstore versus department store debate runs wild. You shouldn't waste your money on expensive mascara, say the experts, but you should invest in a nice foundation. But what about hair care? How does your drugstore blow dryer measure up to a professional one? 

Coupled with the right products, a good dryer can lead the way to a great hair day. If you're stuck with the wrong dryer, though, you may have problems.

Here are my top reasons why cheap blow dryers aren't exactly ideal for your hair:

-They're too hot and lack proper power: Cheap blow-dryers are very hot and because there is very little power behind them, you end up exposing hair to heat for longer periods, causing damage over time.
-They can lead to major frizz: Since there's no power behind a cheaper blow-dryer, it takes forever to dry hair, and eventually most people just give up and head out the door, and because the hair is left with moisture in it, frizz begins and basically you would've spared yourself the time and effort by not doing anything at all.


There are some important qualities you should consider when you're in the market for a new blow dryer.

Pay attention to the settings on the blow dryer you're considering. It's important to make sure it has hot, cool, and speed settings. Also, a blow dryer with a concentrator (the nozzle you put on the tip) is always helpful because it directs the hair in the spot you're pointing for more control.
