Recommendations for hairdryers

Recommendations on hairdryers

Is your hairdryer old (5years +)? Minus a nozzle? Does it take a long time to dry your hair? Do you struggle with getting a nice finish on your hair when drying?

It could be time to invest in a new one. The correct hairdryer and a little technique will save you lots of time and be better for the condition of your hair. Us hairdressers all know that which is why our own hairdryers at home are all good ones. Who has more than 10-15 min to spend on their hair in the morning? Customers who have tried the Totem Hair blow-drying workshop and used my hairdryers have noticed the difference instantly.

So let me introduce you to the main hairdryer I use professionally. It’s light (so my arms don’t get too tired), powerful, with variable speed and heat settings. Even on hottest and max speed though, it’s not too burning, so it relatively OK on the hair. It is a Parlux 385 Powerlight. Parlux is an Italian brand and their hairdryers are used by many of my salon co-workers past and present. They cost around £80 so are not cheap but should last you for several years.

If that is definitely too much, my back-up hairdryer is a Dynamica 4000 Pro by Diva. It cost me about £37. Similar size and power to the Parlux, it’s just a bit heavier. It may not have the longevity I expect from a Parlux. But still definitely a good hairdryer.

Final thought: remember, it is often a good idea to dry the hair roots even if you let the ends dry naturally. This helps prevent dandruff and scalp problems.
