- Drying Time
Need help understanding hair dryer features and technologies? Here are some essentials to know when choosing a hair dryer. For more in-depth info, check out our Hair Dryer Buying Guide.
- Ceramic hair dryers are designed to provide even heat distribution. Ceramic material is often combined with other features and technology such as ionic and tourmaline to produce the smoothest results. Many professional quality hair dryers are fully constructed of ceramic while others are simply ceramic coated.
- Ionic hair dryers emit negative ions which neutralize the positive charge in dry or damaged hair (the only time being negative is a positive!), closing follicles and smoothing strands. Ionic dryers can actually improve hair health and create frizz-free, silky strands with luminous shine. They lock in moisture, help reduce static and work best for delivering super straight, sleek looks. Some dryers offer a switch that lets you choose the level of ion output or turn the ions on for smoothing or off for volumizing.
- A semi-precious gemstone, Tourmaline is the world's finest ionic and infrared generator, known and loved for its remarkable electrical properties. Tourmaline hair dryers rely on a combination of ionic and infrared technology to deliver fast, smooth results. When heated, tourmaline takes on natural negative charge to help split large water droplets into smaller molecules that immediately evaporate, drying hair quicker, preventing damage and locking in necessary moisture and shine.
|Fine, thin or damaged||1200-1500||If hair is fragile or damaged towel blot hair first to absorb excess water and then dry on the lowest setting.|
|Medium/normal straight or wavy||1300-1800||Most hair types will dry well with a variety of watt ranges, fewer watts will make your cuticles curl up!|
|Thick and curly||1600-2000||For thicker hair get tough with a top wattage dryer, e your stronger strands will dry faster!|
The volts and wattage of a hair dryer don't necessarily equal drying power. Other features such as ion emission and tourmaline technology also work to speed drying time by evaporating water molecules from hair. Sylvia Zori, Folica.com's own hair dryer guru, offers a science class refresher. Water is a polar molecule, having a pair of equal and opposite charges. Positively charged air passes through an ionic converter in professional dryers that creates a negative charge to dry hair smoothly. The more negative ions a hair dryer can produce, the faster hair will dry with smoother, shinier results. Ionic technology paired with tourmaline and ceramic boosts productivity even further, taking half the time to dry and exposing hair to less heat.
Motor type is also a factor in hair drying time. Without boring you with high-technicalities, you want a dryer with an AC motor, which is designed to require less maintenance than a DC motor and will last longer. An AC motor is heavier than a DC, but will last longer, so more substantial equals quality in this case. AC motors are also used in other small home appliances like food processers because of their durability.
