The Best Hair Dryers For Fine Hair
This is not a problem I have because my hair is reallllly thick, but my mom has a lot of very fine hair. She and I have very different needs when it comes to blow drying, and she can run into some major issues when she’s trying to use my dryer. Her hair needs a gentle touch that mine doesn’t, and the power that comes with my dryers can really do a number on her “finer” styles.
Fine hair needs a different kind of care, so using the same materials designed for thick hair can make it look flat and dull. If you want to add volume you need materials that smooth without an abundance of power, and you might want to steer clear of ionic technology. The ions actually take volume out, and they’re sure to make fine hair look limp and out of style.
There are still materials that are more than friendly to your hair, and you can be a little more selective over the power level you choose. Ceramic and tourmaline is great for smoothing, in fact anything that adds volume is your friend. You don’t have to look for the highest heat because your hair doesn’t take as long to dry. This is a good thing because it means you don’t do as much damage as those of us who have to pile on the power. Less than 1800 watts is not only acceptable, it’s recommended.
