“Always dress like it’s the best day of your life”, and good hair definitely helps. To complete your fabulous look with your beautiful dress, you need the perfect hairdo to compliment your style. A perfect and the best Hair Dryer will guarantee professional salon-style hair at home. Saving time and keeping that annoying and frizzy hair at bay, the best hair dryers do that hard work for you.
There is a profusion of products in the market to suit all hair types and needs. To minimize damage for the ultimate blow-dry volume, how do you know which one is the best? If you have curly or fine hair it would be best to look for a dryer with cool settings as hair can dry quicker and will damage the hair, less.
Hairdryers are available with attachments, such as diffusers, airflow concentrators, and comb nozzles.
- A diffuser is an attachment that is used on hair that is fine, colored, permed, or naturally curly. It diffuses the jet of air so that the hair is not blown around while it dries. The hair dries more slowly, at a cooler temperature, and with less physical disturbance. This makes the hair less likely to frizz and gives the hair more volume.
- An airflow concentrator does the opposite of a diffuser. It makes the end of the blow dryer narrower and thus helps to concentrate the heat into one spot to make it dry rapidly.
- The comb nozzle attachment is the same as the airflow concentrator, but it ends with comb-like teeth so that the user can dry the hair using the dryer without a brush or comb.
Without further ado, let’s round up the top 10 hair dryers in India which will keep your hair smooth & shiny.

Technique to blow dry hair without damage:
Using a blow dryer helps you achieve your desired style faster, but it’s also damaging to your hair. To minimize damage, flip your head upside down and dry your hair most of the way. Then, finish drying it right-side up.
- The underneath of your hair is usually less damaged because it’s not exposed to the elements as much as the top part of your hair. Drying your head upside down helps you apply less heat to the top sections of your hair.
- This technique also helps your hair look more voluminous when you’re finished styling it.
There are many great hairdryers in the market that can make your hair look smooth, and gorgeous. But when looking for one, it can seem hard to find the best hair dryer that works for your particular hair type. Some are made specifically for thick hair, curly hair, fine hair, damaged hair, dry hair and more.
Look at the speed settings to see how many they offer and you may want to have a cool button that can help set your desired look.
