Professional Blow Dryers

There is actually a big difference in professional blow dryers versus standard consumer hair dryers. When choosing hair care tools and products, it's important to know what features are worth paying for and which may not be worth the investment. When it comes to hair care, professional products really do stand apart from the rest.

One type of professional blow dryers available is ceramic hair dryers. Ceramic is different from ordinary consumer dryers in that ceramic uses a radiant infrared heat, rather than the intense heat used by other dryers. The radiant heat penetrates the shaft of the hair instead of blowing the water off from the outside of the strand to the inside of the strand with intense heat. This protects the hair, keeping it healthy and helping to prevent breakage.

Another type to consider is the ionic hair dryer. Most consumer dryers turn the normally neutrally charged ions of the hair into positively charged ions, causing frizz. Ionic dryers create a negative charge instead, allowing the cuticle of the hair to remain flat during this drying process. This traps the moisture inside the hair, omitting the problem of frizz and leaving the hair full of body. Look for ceramic and ionic hair dryers by Babyliss and others.

Professional blow dryers also include bonnet style dryers. Bonnet hair dryers aren't hand held. These are the salon type units that fold down over the head and gently dry the entire head of hair at the same time. These dryers are ideal for curly, ringlet and wavy hair styles that require rollers. It is less time consuming to roll and dry the hair at once, rather than taking two steps to dry and curl. Also, it helps curls last longer when the curls are dried in place.

Another hair dryer option to consider to save time is the styler and dryer. These units dry the hair and introduce curl and body at the same time. Combining these two processes not only saves time, it also reduces the amount of time your hair undergoes heat, minimizing damage to the hair.
