Why you need a travel hair dryer

All Things Hair | 27 May 2016

Because why shouldn’t our hair look its best when on holiday? 

It’s nearly summer holiday season – hooray! And with thoughts quickly turning to white sandy beaches, pool days and balmy evenings, many of us are probably already starting to get all our best vacation outfits out of the closet. And if , like many of us, you’re already worried about how you might fit all of your key styling tools into your suitcase, a travel hair dryer might be the ideal solution!

When it comes to styling your mane when you’re away, a hair dryer will make sure that you always look your best during those hot summer nights. After all, heat and humidity can cause lots of hair problems. So it’s important that you have the right tools at hand to tame and defrizz your hair. Which is why you should always invest in a good-quality hair dryer that is compact and powerful. Less bulky than the average salon tool, a travel hair dryer will instantly become your best friend on your trips, allowing you to style your mane with ease, without having to worry about it fitting in your suitcase.

Still need convincing? Here’s a list of the main reasons why having a travel hair dryer with you when exploring the world is a great idea.

3 Reasons you should invest in a travel hair dryer

1. Size matters

When you’re travelling the world and living out of a suitcase, the size of the things you put in your luggage certainly matters – especially when it comes to items of clothing, styling tools and cosmetics! But rather than having to make too many compromises, why not downsize everything?

Compact in design, lightweight and super powerful, a travel hair dryer is perfect for freeing up some much-needed space in your suitcase, allowing you to embark on your travels safe in the knowledge that your hair will always look its best. Foldable with a detachable nozzle, it can fit in even the tightest spaces!

2. It’s just as powerful

Most travel hair dryers have the same features as a standard one; meaning that you don’t have to compromise on quality or functionality. So, you can expect to enjoy the same styling results as the ones you get at home. In fact, when it comes to speed, power and durability, you’ll be amazed at how many high-performance travel hair dryers are currently on the market.

3. Hotel hair dryers are hardly ideal

Although many hotels have their own hair dryers for guests to use, they’re hardly ideal and should definitely not stop you from purchasing a travel one. Why? Because they’re usually bolted to the bathroom wall, meaning that many of us have to style our hair in a wet and steamy room just after showering (not great if you want to tame frizzy hair!). And there’s also no guarantee that your hotel hair dryer will work or even match up to the quality you are used too.

So, if the very thought of leaving your favourite styling tools behind fills you with dread when you’re about to embark on a trip, a travel hair dryer may just be your perfect option.
