I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for a good hair dryer. I have not been happy with any of the hair dryers I have bought in the past and usually just let my hair air dry in order to avoid a high amount of frizz. I have less time after my showers now due to work and need to start using a hair dryer again. I have no price range, although I am hoping to buy it off Amazon because I have a ton of gift cards. I would really appreciate any recommendations and reasons why you are recommending the product. Thank you so much in advance!

It will really depend on your hair. Can you describe it for us?
Mine is long, ultra thick, coarse, colored, dry and damaged. It's also naturally wavy.
My previous dryers would take 40 mins minimum to dry (and by then I would be sweating). It would be super frizzy and full of volume. I need the proper products first - I use smoothing and moisturizing shampoos only on my scalp and the rich conditioners on my entire hair with a strong focus on midlength to ends. I also use hair masks often and oils every day (mid length to ends). My current shampoo and conditioner is a coconut oil brand from winner's.
I recently purchased a fantastic blow dryer from Sally and it cuts my drying time to 20 mins max, and with the products I use as well as a round brush I rarely have to straighten.
So depending on your hair this might not be the dryer for you - it may be too stong for you. It only has a few heat settings and you may need something that has a lower heat setting. Whatever brand you go with make sure it has a cool blast function because at the end of your hair drying yiu need this to seal in the cuticle and make your hair smooth and less frizzy.

Thank you for your answer! I didn't know the cool blast function did that and will definitely have to try that. I absolutely love Sally's, its where I purchase all my shampoo and conditioner. I will definitely check out their hair dryers next time I am in there.
To answer your question: My hair is medium thickness, long, uncoloured, and wavy/curly. I straighten it everyday with a professional straightener because it needs a high heat in order to straighten. Although I use my straightener everyday on a very high heat, it does not damage very easily. My hair is very stubborn when it comes to styling. It will hold my natural curls, but if I try curling it then the curls won't hold for more than 30 minutes.

There's a super cheap curing wand (tapers at the end) at Walmart that is FANTASTIC for holding curls in hard to curl hair. The wand is pink and I believe it's either conair or Revlon (I think revlon) and it's amazing and super cheap. My adult daughter can't hold curls and hers will last for days with this wand. You can also view tutorials for curling your hair using your current flat iron. Most work unless it's a huge old style one.

This is the curling wand

Do you mean the big ones people sit under? I thought they were all blow dryers now unless you go to a hair salon.
