The humble blowdryer is the unsung hero of your winter hair routine. Sure, softening shampoo, hydrating conditioner, and a good curl mousse can help in styling. But if your dryer is heavy and wheezing and you lost the diffuser attachment, a blowout can feel like a painful bicep workout — and you're tempted to just skip it and step out with dripping-wet hair to run the risk of a rough hair day and possible pneumonia.
See, that whole narrative changes when you invest in a nice blowdryer; one that's lightweight, speedy, and leaves your hair so warm and shiny that you actually semi-enjoy the process of blowing out your hair. Ahead, a few of Refinery29's beauty editors break down the hair dryers they can't live without, all of which make a worth-it splurge this winter if you like soft hair, faster blowouts, and, if nothing else, bone-dry hair during flu season.
