  • Types of Hair Dryers

    There are three major types of hair dryers: ionic, ceramic and tourmaline. Ionic dryers use negative ions to shrink water droplets in the hair. Ceramic dryers contain ceramic coils. Unlike metal, this material is said to self-regulate to prevent overheating. Lastly, tourmaline, a gemstone typically added to the heater of hair dryers, is thought to generate a higher number of negative ions than regular ionic dryers. Negative ions close the cuticle layer to create a smooth, silky hair surface and seal in the hair’s natural moisture. This provides ultimate shine, color and moisture protection for hair.
