Airdrying your hair seems like the better option compared to constantly exposing your strands to heat. However, did you know that wet hair is a lot more susceptible to harmful factors so leaving it to constantly air-dry makes it weaker? This is where good hair dryers enter the picture (emphasis on ‘good’).
A normal hair dryer would expose you further to heat damage but a good one is optimised to prioritise your hair’s health. Not sure which ones fit the bill? Well, we’ve found 11. Here are hair dryers that help prevent hair damage while keeping your locks styled to perfection — all available in Singapore.
