Ideal Heat for Certain Hair Types
Wattage ratings of hair dryers
let you know just how powerful they are. Models with high wattage ratings can generate a lot of heat and force when they are turned on, and for some people that high-powered drying action just isn't ideal. If your hair is dry or damaged, a lower wattage hair dryer is a better option for your needs, as it will reduce your hair's exposure to intense heat that could stress your tresses even more. Lower wattage hair dryers are also ideal for those with very fine and thin hair, which can dry quickly even with lower heat levels. Have healthy hair of average thickness and texture? A hair dryer with a wattage rating of 1875 will likely give you better drying results than one of these lower wattage models.
Types of Low Watt Hair Dryers
Low wattage rating hair dryers are offered in a number of styles. Conventional handheld hair dryers are convenient for people who want to be able to use their dryers in more than one location or store them in a drawer or closet when not in use. Wall-mounted models are space-saving solutions that are perfect for individuals who want to always have a hair dryer at the ready in a single location. Bonnet style hair dryers provide very gentle heat and are designed to be worn over wet hair for an extended period of time to gradually dry it. Styler hair dryers come with attachments that can be used to straighten and smooth the tresses while blow-drying. These hair dryers eliminate the need to use a separate hair brush while blow-drying.
