9 Blow Dryers Worth the Investment If You Have Textured Hair
Achieving the perfect blowout is dependent on a lot of things, but nothing matters quite as much as having a high-quality blow dryer that'll really deliver when you want salon-quality results. A pro-grade hair dryer can reduce frizz, increase shine, and dry your hair in less time, all while preventing damage in the process, whether it be from heat or manipulation. Features like this especially come in handy for those of us with curly or textured hair, who often have to put just a little extra work in when it comes to blow-drying.
Not sure where to start? We're here to help. Read ahead to check out a few of our recommendations for the best blow dryers for textured hair.
InfinitiPro By Conair Natural Texture Dryer
The InfinitiPro By Conair Natural Texture Dryer ($50) makes blow-drying your hair a quick and easy task thanks to its powerful AC motor, which reduces drying time by 50 percent. Many reviewers have also applauded the tool for its lightweight build and ability to reduce frizz.
Bed Head Curls in Check 1875 Watt Diffuser Hair Dryer
If you want to dry your hair quickly without sacrificing your texture, the Bed Head Curls in Check 1875 Watt Diffuser Hair Dryer ($34) is a good tool to have on hand. The dryer comes with a removable diffuser that expands the airflow and works with your curls, not against them.
John Frieda Frizz Ease Full Volume Hair Dryer
The great thing about the John Frieda Frizz Ease Full Volume Hair Dryer ($35, originally $50) is that it features quick-drying technology, meaning the potential for your hair to be damaged by heat is lower. It also comes with a cool shot button that helps lock your hair into place while styling.
Gold 'N Hot Professional 1875-Watt Turbo Dryer
The name of this one says it all. The Gold 'N Hot Professional 1875-Watt Turbo Dryer ($23, originally $26) has a pretty high heat setting, but as one reviewer pointed out, even when the heat is at its highest, it doesn't make your hair feel like it's being damaged thanks to the tool's quick-drying ability.
BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Dryer
The BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Dryer ($85) is lightweight, quiet, and quick to get the job done. It also comes with six (count 'em!) heat settings, a cool shot button, and a concentrator nozzle to help you distribute air evenly without disrupting your curl pattern.
Hot Tools Professional Turbo Ceramic + Ionic Lightweight Dryer
We love that the Hot Tools Professional Turbo Ceramic + Ionic Lightweight Dryer ($50) comes in a cool, royal-purple color, but we love even more that it's powerful enough to reduce frizz and shorten your hair's drying time even with its lightweight technology.
