Choosing the Best Travel Hair Dryer

Travel hair dryers are made in compact size and lightweight that they could be easily packed in the suitcase for travel convenience. If you are always on the move, you need to consider buying a good travel hair dryer to dry your hair quickly and conveniently on the journey.

Here are a few tips that help you find the best travel hair dryer:

1.  The first thing to consider is the size and weight.
Of course you should buy a small and lightweight travel hair dryer, especially one with foldable handle, so that it doesn’t take up precious suitcase space. Some of the smallest models measure nearly 6 inches and weight less than 1 pound.

2.  Make sure it comes with dual voltage.
Dryers without a dual voltage only work in the US, Canada and countries that use 110/120 V. With a standard adapter to convert 110/120 V to 220/240 V, a dual voltage dryer could work almost anywhere in the world. So make sure the dryer you buy for travel comes with dual voltage.

3.  Choose a travel hair dryer with stronger power
Many travel hair dryers are small and lightweight enough, but not powerful enough. You surely don’t want to spend twice or more time than usual to dry your hair while on the go. So you should choose one with stronger power, at least 1200 watts. Hot Tools Anti-Static Ionic Travel Hair Dryer is recommended here, which is built with 1875 watts power, same as a full-sized professional one.

4.  Get the travel hair dryer with ceramic/tourmaline/ionic technology.
Such hair dryers emit negative ions while working to keep hair smooth and reduce frizz. You might not have enough time for proper hair care when travel, but you could enjoy sleek & smooth drying result with your ionic travel hair dryer.

5.  Pick one with good warranty.
A travel dryer takes bumps along the way. A good warranty could save your money for repairing or buying a new one.

Having a good travel hair dryer on hand, you can enjoy good hair days even on the go. So follow these tips, check out our picks of best travel hair dryers and buy one for your convenience.
