Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer
Yes, you read that right: Amazon offers the super luxurious and often hard to find Dyson miracle hair dryer, the Supersonic. Our love of the Supersonic is well documented, and we’re in good company, along with the nearly 4,000 reviewers who gave it five-stars. Not only will this hair dryer protect your strands against heat damage, but it also comes with four styling attachments so you can play around with hairstyles with ease. Trust us, this dryer is so good, there’s an entire category devoted to mimicking the style.
T3 Cura Luxe Professional Ionic Hair Dryer
We’re all about a sleek design, and T3’s high tech dryer delivers. It’s not quite as pricey as the Supersonic, but is worth the investment just the same. It’s noteworthy features include five heat and two speed settings and a switch that allows you to turn the ionizer on and off to control the amount of texture and volume it will deliver.
A dream for curlies and natural hair aficionados, DevaCurl’s hair dryer is specifically designed to reduce frizz for curly and wavy hair types. But the real star of this hair dryer is the unique hand-shaped hair diffuser that attaches to the end of the nozzle to scrunch curls, keeping them intact and bouncy. If you have curly hair, you know how difficult it is to find one built for curly hair, and with this one, you’ll never look back.
Bio Ionic 10x Pro Ultra Light Speed Dryer
With a motor that is 50% more powerful than those of your standard hair dryer, your hair drying experience with this Bio Ionic tool will go from tedious to speedy. In fact, the brand even promises it, vouching that you can go from sopping wet hair to dry hair in less than 10 minutes. Another surprising aspect is that it harnesses volcanic rock minerals to completely seal each hair’s cuticle to ensure maximum shine.
Drybar Buttercup Blow Dryer
Naturally, a brand devoted to delivering next-level blowouts has invented one of the best. This lightweight dryer allows you to completely customize your blowout with three temperatures, two heat settings and two different concentrator attachments to control airflow so you can get the volume and bounce that you’d like.
Hot Tools Turbo Ceramic Ionic Salon Dryer
Don’t be fooled by its look-at-me rainbow design, this quietly powerful hair dryer is built with ceramic materials and ion technology that can dry hair up to 50% faster than a regular option. Plus, the ceramic ionic airflow with six head and speed settings enables you to control frizz without frying your hair.
BaBylissPro Nano Titanium Dryer
Especially great for thin and fine hair, BaBylissPro’s hair dryer is extra gentle with vulnerable strands (thin hair is naturally prone to easy breakage). Its mega 2000 watts and ion technology dries your hair in a flash while the six heat and speed settings, plus a cool shot button, tame flyaways for a totally sleek and glossy blowout.
