An essential bathroom accessory, the hair dryer must be chosen with care, according to the nature of the hair and the needs. Whether you use it daily or more occasionally, follow the guide to find the hair dryer of your dreams among the many models on offer today. It will accompany you faithfully for many years to come!

 

The right power and temperature

Power and temperature are the first two elements to be taken into account. They should ideally be adapted to the nature of your hair. Knowing that the power of a hair dryer can vary between 1300 and 2200 Watts, it is up to you to find the right match between the two:

  • For fragile, fine or dry hair, it is useless to choose a hair dryer with high power and temperature, which would make it more fragile;
  • if your hair is thick and strong, you can turn to a high-powered blow dryer for fast and efficient drying;
  • if you have short, resistant hair and are a specialist in alarm clocks or last minute beauty makeovers, opt without hesitation for a hair dryer with a "turbo" function, which will guarantee you ultra-fast drying and beautiful volume;
  • for all hair types, the"cold air" option helps to expel static electricity, closes the scales and offers a gentle drying, for divinely smooth and shiny hair!
