Curly hair

If you have been battling with those unruly curls all your life then look for a blow dryer that is made from ceramic. The reason for this choice is that this kind of blow dryer uses infrared heat and dry hair from the inside out. This ensures that the moisture in your hair is retained, controlling curls to a great extent. Its wattage must also be in higher range because these stubborn hair need a real hot blow to manage them.

Frizzy hair

Frizzy hairs are more of a delicate kind and are prone to breakage. Your blow dryer must be able to do the damage control here. You can reliably trust a blow dryer that comes with tourmaline or thermal ionic technology. These type of blow dryers do not fry up your hair while managing the heat required. It retains the natural dampness of this kind of hair while improving on the lost luster in your hair.

Fine Hair

Never go for a blow dryer with powerful heating for this hair type. They will be blown with the overheating to the point of total damage. Select a blow dryer with anti overheating control and low heat settings to preserve the fineness of your hair.

Thick hair

Thick hair are generally quite strong to handle any kind of care or un-care. Thick hair need a dryer that dries faster, so a high wattage blow dryer will be the best option. If your hair is thick and glossy go for a ceramic one. But if your hair are dull as well, then get a blow dryer with ionic technology so that while drying your hair quickly the dryer adds to the sheen also.
