How to choose the best hair dryer:
Number of settings: some hair dryers come with 2 setting and some of them have 3 or more number of settings. Make sure that it has an option for blowing air without heating i.e. cold shot.
Heating capacity: This will determine how hot the air can get as it touches your hair. A hair dryer with higher wattage will also have higher heating capacity.
Air blowing capacity: what is also important along with heating capacity is how much air it can move. Different air speeds allow you to dry and style your hair more comfortably and provide more flexibility.
Weight: Along with other factors that we have seen, weight of the dryer can also play an important role in you enjoying you hair drying and styling routine. A heavy dryer can tire you arm out more easily.
Portability: If you like to carry you hair dryer on travels it is better to buy a lightweight and smaller hair dryer. Philips HP8120 is perfect for travellers as it is light, small and has foldable handle.
