Using the Right Wattage Hair Dryer

September 5, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

Most women know about choosing the right temperature setting on their curling iron or hair straightener for their hair type to get the best results. Many do not know they should also choose their hair dryer based on wattage for the same reason. Of course poorly made hair dryers do not have the higher wattage capability as the professional hair dryers have built in.

For those with fine or damaged hair a hair dryer of 1,200 to 1,500 watts is the best for getting the hair dry quickly and efficiently. This means that if your hair is in this category you will not need a dryer that is stout and robust, as other hair types need.

While those with very thick or wavy hair type will need a hair dryer with more power, so for these hair types a unit with a minimum of 1,800 watts will be needed to properly dry hair like this.

If your hair is somewhere in between, than a dryer in the middle ranges of these two wattage ratings extremes will be suitable to get the hair dry.

Having the right amount of power behind your hair dryer is essential to not only dry your hair quickly but to keep it at its absolute healthiest. This will help you get ready quicker and make styling your hair so much simpler.

Humidity and Straight Hair

Summer time can really be hard on your hair with all the sun, heat, and humidity added on top of the styling that someone does everyday. The heat and humidity can make your hair frizzy and unmanageable making even the straightest of hair untamed. A straightening iron can help you get your hair back into the sleek, straight appearance that you would like to have. Hair flat irons using tourmaline can not only remove that summer time humidity induced frizz, but also help you retain your hair’s own natural moisture that summer time styling and sun can take out of it quickly.

Of course it is also important to remember to use the lowest temperature possible when using a hair flat iron. Too high of a temperature can damage hair that is already coping with summer sun, chlorine, and other extremes that the season brings. It is always important to use only the temperature needed to get the job done, no matter what time of year to keep your hair healthy when using hair flat irons and other professional hair styling tools. There is nothing more like summer than beautiful straight hair and a great bikini.
