When choosing a hair dryer, take a look at the material that it's made out of, its wattage and its weight.
An ionic hair dryer is a type of hair dryer that gives off a negative ionic charge. This can actually help dry your hair quicker (as the negative ions repel water) and lock in moisture, preventing damage. An alternative to an ionic hair dryer would be a ceramic hair dryer, which is ideal for very fine hair.
A hair dryer with a higher wattage will dry your hair faster than a low-wattage counterpart. But be careful because higher wattage dryers are hotter and can damage hair more easily. Also consider the weight of a hairdryer before buying one. You don’t want to have to hold a heavy dryer above your head for long periods.
Make sure your hair dryer comes with multiple heat settings so you can adjust the heat – where possible use a lower heat setting to protect your hair from damage. A cool setting can also help reduce frizz. Also look out for accessories like a diffuser, which adds volume while keeping texture intact.
