Ionic hair dryers are one of the newest innovations in hair care technology, and professional stylists everywhere are using them in salons to give their clients the best possible results with blowouts. The heating elements in ionic hair dryers create negatively charged particles called ions when the thermal styling tools are turned on. These invisible, weightless ions build up along the hair strands, combining with positively charged static and eliminating it. Ions also make hair less able to absorb moisture and produce frizz, and they have a smoothing, shine-enhancing effect on the tresses. All of the benefits of ions combine to make hair more manageable, sleek and easy to style after blow-drying.
Heating Elements Compared
The manufacturers of ionic hair dryers can construct heating elements out of a variety of materials. Ceramic blow dryers
contain heating elements coated with ceramic pottery, which heats up evenly and remains at a consistent temperature throughout blow-drying. Titanium hair dryers
feature heating elements crafted out of solid titanium precious metal or that are plated with a thin layer of the metal. These hair dryers are very durable and lightweight. Tourmaline hair dryers
feature ceramic-coated heating elements infused with tourmaline gemstone crystals and are capable of producing many more ions than other types of ionic hair dryers.
Select the Right Wattage Rating
The wattage rating of ionic hair dryers indicates how powerful the blow dryers
are. Most people can get great drying results with an 1875-watt hair dryer. Models with higher wattage ratings work best for people with very long, coarse or thick hair that takes a long time to blow-dry. Dryers with lower wattage ratings are suitable for very fine and thin hair.
