Frizzy hair plagues many of us, and taming it can all start with the hair tools we use, most notably the hair dryer.
Having a hairdryer that helps tame frizz will go a long way ensuring your locks stay silky and frizz free till the next time you come to wash your hair.
Frizzy hair is often drier and naturally tends to absorb moisture from humid air, making your hair’s outer layer lift and give a look of a frizzy head. By giving your locks plenty of moisture, even as you blow dry, will go a long way in ensuring your hair stays frizz-free.
Here’s our pick of the best hair dryers for frizzy hair.

Negative Ion Technology eliminates static and frizz by neutralising positive (static) ions which can accumulate when brushing or styling, the result is soft, smooth and shiny hair that stays in place.
Infrared heat gently heats each hair from within without drying out the hair; this process protects the cuticle resulting in faster styling and moisture rich, healthy looking results.
Ego Evolve comes with over 144 combinations, demonstrating that it really is about technology before technique. As well as that, this hair dryer has 12 adjustable heat, speed, condition and cool shot settings for added power, volume, softness and shine, reducing frizz and risk of heat damage for a truly lasting style.
As with all Ego Professional styling tools, the brand has used their unique technology of combining naturally occurring mineral-laden earth Hwango and Tourmaline Red Pine Forest in Korea. This formulates their trademark ‘HW2’ technology which plays the key role in preventing static and frizz, drying whilst retaining moisture, and keeping hair healthy as well as drying it in the fastest time possible without harm. For amazing results they combine HW2 with the best quality crushed Tourmaline gems which emit infrared heat and negative ions (which evaporate excess water), making the heat much gentler on the hair during styling for a shinier and less frizzy finish. The tourmaline gem also enables the hair to endure much higher levels of heat without creating damage.
