One question we always get asked is “what hair dryer is the best?”. It’s a hard question to answer for the average customer, because there are a lot of similar dryers, and everyone has different needs. We decided it would be best to give you a list of our Top 5 Hair Dryers. We took a poll of our stylists, and found that these were their favorites. A few things you need to know first:
Tourmaline technology combines the best of Ceramic and Ionic Technologies. Tourmaline technology naturally and efficiently emits negative ions and infrared heat while drying your hair. This provides the following benefits;
- Silky, shine. Negative ions close the cuticle layer to create a smooth, shiny hair surface and to lock in hair’s own natural moisture.
- Quick Drying. Negative ions also break up water molecules into smaller sizes on the hair surface. These smaller water particles evaporate easily and quickly for fast drying.
- Moisture. Small water particles also penetrate the hair shaft easily for added moisture
- Dry Fast Without Hair Damage. Infrared heat penetrates hair to heat it gently from within. Infrared is a different type of heat that does not heat the air. Instead, more heat is delivered to the hair shaft; less is delivered to the surface, so hair is not damaged. Because infrared penetrates so deeply, it often “feels” hot, but this is actually due to more penetrating heat and less surface heat.
- Made of 100% crushed Tourmaline jewels utilizing negative ions and infrared heat technology. Dryes hair more than 2 times faster than ordinary dryers. Ultra lightweight.
Ceramic technology, like Tourmaline technology, has many benefits when drying your hair. The main benefit of ceramic technology is that it emits negative ions that helps reduce frizz. Ceramic technology also helps your dryer/iron heat up fast. The issue with just a ceramic dryer is the weight, this is the reason that the Tourmaline technology was created. This reduces the weight of the dryer.
Ionic hair dryers emit negative ions that helps reduce frizz and will hold the style longer in your hair. This is also incorporated in a Tourmaline dryer.
Tourmaline and Tourmaline Titanium are the 2 newest technologies. Titanium plates on an iron or a dryer made out of titanium greatly reduces the weight. It also maintains a constant heat throughout the dryer or iron, which is better for your hair.
Tourmaline Titanium provides exceptional heat conductivity. The ionic generator emits a higher concentration of ions, enhancing tourmaline’s natural ions, to more effectively eliminate frizz and close the hair’s cuticle. The dynamic combination of Tourmaline and Titanium allows stylists to achieve professional results on any hair type or texture.
The Centrix Q Zone hair dryer seems to be the favorite because of it’s power and how quiet the dryer is. Our stylists rave about how they can have conversations with their clients while they’re drying their hair! It’s almost unheard of.
