Best Lightweight Hair Dryers Reviewed with Discounts

People have different heat and air pressure requirements when it comes to hair dryers depending on a lot of variables. These variables include hair texture, hair style, hair length and the user’s height as well. Hence, air pressure and heat degree required varies. But one thing is independent of these variables – The weight of the hair dryer. No matter what your hair type is, how long it is and how tall or petite you are, everyone wants to have a lightweight hair dryer.

But at the same time, we want the best lightweight hair dryer that does its job with good quality results. Below we have jot down the details and description of hair dryers with the minimum weight in the market but at the same time have highest ratings for its performance.

*Top Rated Choice from Lightweight Hair Dryer*



Manufactured by RUSK, w8less model is exclusively designed to be as light as possible on your wrists hence named W8LESS. This is the lightest hair dryer model that I have ever found. You can find lightweight hair dryers in drugstores but they lack hair-care technology that helps reduce frizz and increase shine. Hair dryers that are lightweight usually have a trade-off with tourmaline, ceramic and/or ionic technology. However, this model includes Tourmaline and Ceramic technology.

7 heat/speed settings

2000 Watt power

8-ft cord

Pros: Why We Like It

  • Ultra-powerful- The standard hair dryer power is defined to be 1875W. Rusk W8less has 2000W power, much higher than the standard which dries hair quicker.
  • Extremely lightweight- Its just 1.1 pounds, exceptionally light, guaranteed to have no shoulder cramps or writs sprains due to holding it longer.
  • Easy cleaning of the filter- Its removable screen filter helps in easy cleaning, avoiding it from deteriorating before time.

Cons: Parts We Don’t Like

  • Loose attachment- The concentrator attachment has a loose fitting on the front of the dryer. It doesn’t have a mechanism of locking in which keeps it coming off again and again.
  • Noisy- It is less noisy than most other drugstore hair dryers but it is loud enough to disturb people in the house.

Rusk W8less price ranges between $50 and $60. It is a good deal for the price.
