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 has always been touted as best but in recent years it has come to our attention that air drying is damaging to our strands. Yes, that means we need to dry our hair with indirect heat and blow dryers are ideal along with hooded dryers. 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 seven 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.
Best Blow Dryer For natural 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.
