I’ll go out on a limb here and say that every single woman on earth uses a blow dryer at least occasionally, unless she has Rapunzel kind of hair, in that case, lucky you sister. Yet, just because that’s the case, it doesn’t justify dropping a few hundred dollars just to buy one, especially when there are so many excellent blow dryers out there that cost the equivalent of the money you’d pay for food in a day.
Other than the want and sometimes need to get that Rapunzel gorgeous, smooth, sleek looking hair every once in a while, we as women use hair dryers for practical reasons too, like being able to go out right after taking a shower without the risk of catching a cold or pneumonia or looking like a homeless person who hasn’t showered for two months, because your hair gets frizzy four minutes after you just washed it. So, blow dryers are to some, myself included, a necessity.
So, in a quest to save you money and make your life easier, I have searched high and low, compared and contrasted, and here is a conclusion I came to: expensive doesn’t necessarily mean better, because some of the best blow dryers in the market are under $50. Yet, beware, because sometimes cheap could also mean what you fear it means—cheap. The low price could be an indication that the blow dryer is of poor quality and will fry your hair over time. The blow dryers chosen in this list have thousands of reviews that make them worthy to be here. They have stood the test of time. They have fans.
