“a consumer reports for the cheap” — the new york times

Consumers expect budget hair dryers to make their hair look smooth and sleek without frizz. Although hair dryer preferences tend to be somewhat personal, several features are in demand. Ionic, ceramic, and tourmaline technologies help hair dry faster, smoother, and without static. The power of the motor theoretically affects how fast hair dries. When it comes to styling, consumer reviewers indicate that they like the flexibility of different heat and speed settings, as well as a cold-shot button to help set the style. Attachments, such as a diffuser, are welcome additions for certain hair types and styles.
