Hair dryers are funny products. The vast majority of women (and quite a few guys) own one. Yet, no one really knows what a good one is supposed to be able to do. Should it eliminate frizz? Should it have different heat settings? How do I know if it's actually working? For these questions and more, we turned to the geniuses over at Rank & Style.
The site uses customer reviews, editors' picks, and overall buzz to figure out which products are going to work the hardest for you, without bruising your bank account. Consider its authors beauty lovers with a penchant for math. After crunching the numbers, Rank & Style has named the Sedu Revolution Pro Tourmaline Ionic 4000i the clear winner.
According to the site, Sedu's tool gets quite a bit of buzz. It's also one that editors (like yours truly) can't shut up about. For good reason: It reduces frizz and static, and it seriously cuts down on your drying time. Our favorite part? The barrel is lightweight, meaning your arm won't get tired when you're holding it for 10 minutes straight (good news for gals with thick hair).
So, quit scratching your head when it comes to blowdryers. Sedu's Tourmaline Ionic won't even break your bank: It'll set you back a cool $175, which, as far as dryers that actually work go, is a bargain. And, like your shampoo and conditioner, this is one product you'll love for years. Pick it up before fall (a.k.a. blowout season) hits, and your strands' ll be smooth through April.
Sedu Revolution Pro Tourmaline Ionic 4000i Hair Dryer, $174.99, available at Folica.
