Travel often? Or even sometimes? Whether you live out of your suitcase or enjoy occasional vacations but always want to look your best, you can rely on a dual voltage hair dryer for the job. Even if you have to use a hair dryer at home as well as abroad, a dual voltage model can work perfectly, all you have to do is flick the dual voltage switch if you’re anywhere other than home.
The difference between a dual voltage hair dryer and a normal one is that the former can convert from 110/120 V to 220/240V thanks to a standard adaptor, allowing it to work in any country provided there’s electricity.
You can find different types of dual voltage hair dryers, so here’s a quick guide to help you out when you’re buying one:
- Ceramic dual voltage hair dryer: this is a rather popular choice since ceramic hair dryers possess instant heating properties provided by the self-regulating ceramic coils that evenly distribute heat and prevent hair damage.
- Tourmaline dual voltage hair dryer: the tourmaline dual voltage hair dryer is able to emit negatively charged ions and infrared heat to make your hair feel softer and look sleeker.
- Ionic dual voltage hair dryer: the ionic technology allows you to greatly reduce drying time with this hair dryer which utilizes charged ions to make the water molecules disappear, leaving your locks frizz-free and smooth.
- Professional dual voltage hair dryer: the favorite of professional stylists, the professional hair dryer uses nothing but the most advanced technology and highest quality materials, making it durable and very reliable. It costs a bit more and is a little larger than most, but it’s features are well worth the price.
An example of a functional, top quality dual voltage hair dryer is the Karmin Salon Pro Professional featuring ceramic heating elements combined with ionic technology to give you the smoothest results anywhere you go.
