Just about every natural has a blow dryer to help drying hair but also to get those sexy straight styles many of us love. Air drying is always best but the right blow dryer is an asset to your hair accessories arsenal. Hair dryers are great but knowing which ones to buy can be hard to figure out as there are way too many on the market to choose from.
If you are still a fan of straight styles and want the perfect dryer for a sexy blowout, we’ve got five of the best hair dryers that naturals seem to love. From reasonably priced to ultra-loaded down with amazing features and pricey, check out the best of the best for textured hair.
Andis hair dryers come in a wide variety of styles and features but we love the Professional 1875 Watt Ceramic Ionic Hair Dryer because it generates more airflow for a faster drying time and has a lightweight design. This favorite has an evenly heating ceramic plate and with the addition of ions to the jet stream of air, your hair is free of static. This technology reduces frizz and makes styling and further styling much easier. Pretty much in the middle of price ranges on the list, the Andis is right under $50 and truly worth the price.
Another favorite among naturals is the super badass Babyliss Pro Tourmaline Titanium 3000. Popular with its elegant stylish look & most excellent performance, this dryer has several settings for heat and power so you can find the right temperature for your hair. The Tourmaline Titanium Technologies decrease drying time & reduce curliness so you can get that super straight hair without using too much heat which could damage your hair.
A great hair dryer for a great price, this hair dryer is under $80 and will last a long time if properly taken care of. You won’t regret this purchase!
We always love hair styling tools designed for textured hair so this hair dryer is one of the best for getting our hair straight. The Chi Home Deep Brilliance Hair Dryer is great for Type 4 hair for smoothing and giving hair movement. Extremely quiet and lightweight, this dryer quickly dries hair using far infrared technology and ergonomically designed for comfort and control. Not the most expensive hair dryer, it runs under $100 and a great investment and includes a Diffuser, an Concentrator nozzle and a Comb attachment.
Conair 1875 Watt Soft Touch Hair Styler allows you to achieve the styles you desire with the Tourmaline ceramic technology and ionic conditioning allonyms. Fight frizz, add shine and stave off heat damage with the built in concentrator that allows air flow to make hair smooth and sleek. A great inexpensive yet powerful hair dryer for under $25, it also has a removable filter prevents lint buildup and extends motor life and a much-needed diffuser.
Last on the list but certainly not least, the GHD Air Professional Performance hair dryer was developed in collaboration with ghd scientists and top stylists, to help you unlock the secrets to a gorgeous salon blowout. The Ghd Air uses an industrial ionic generator which is placed closer to the nozzle and to the hair, which means you get the full benefit of the emitted ions to lock in moisture and deliver softer, smoother, shinier results that last longer. All this greatness comes at a price as it costs just under $200.
