It seems quite pointless, as can there ever be a good hair dryer for damaged hair? The ideal solution would probably be letting your hair air dry, but we all know that’s not going to happen all of the time – especially when we’re in a rush. So, here we’ve picked out the best hairdryer options for damaged hair.

These hair dryers typically cost a little more, thanks to more professional equipment that is designed to be more gentle on hair and cut time drying time too – which of course reduces the amount of heat you apply to your locks, therefore cutting down on damage.

Here’s our pick of the best hairdryers for damaged hair.

Is the Dyson hairdryer worth £299 TheFuss.co.ukDyson Supersonic hairdryer

The Dyson hairdryer definitely made an impact when it was introduced last year, and not just because of the eye-watering price tag. The hairdryer looked nothing like anything we’d ever seen before.

The Dyson Supersonic hairdryer has however since proved that it is definitely one of the best tools for damaged hair, we’re just not sure how many people are willing to pay the £299.99 price tag.

The model is ideal for damaged hair because it’s eight times faster, so you’ll spend less time actually drying your hair. The controlled airflow doesn’t go over 150 degrees either, so it won’t overheat the hair, which is controlled with a glass bead thermistor which measures the temperature at 20 times a second.

Panasonic Nanoe

The Panasonic Nanoe hairdryer uses ionic technology to help protect against damaging your locks. The tool helps keep 1,000 times more moisture in the hair and scalp compared with other hairdryers. And a healthy scalp is vital for the overall health of your locks too.

Plus there’s a quick dry nozzle attachment, which reduces the amount of time you spend using the tool on your hair, which is only beneficial to its health.

Collexia hair dryer

The Collexia hair dryer is perfect for those with damaged locks as it’s designed to cut down on drying time. The tool is also energy efficient too. But how exactly is it better for your hair? Well, the unqiue patented dual-fan design doubles the volume of airflow the dryer is able to product. So while some hairdryers might reduce the drying time by increasing the heat produced, the Collexia has increased the airflow so your hair won’t feel as dried out once you’ve used the tool.

ghd Aura hairdryer

The ghd Aura hairdryer is even better than the original Air hairdryer we saw for the brand, and the results it leaves on your hair are definitely some of the best you can get from hair tools. The dryer has been designed alongside scientists to ensure it has only the best technology and that means two innovations, one to let you get as close to the root of your hair without burning your scalp. The other is a stronger concentration of air to leave your hair looking soft, smooth and shiny. This hairdryer is an excellent piece of kit, and it's incredibly lightweight too thanks to the fact that the power supply is on the cord of the dryer rather than in the tool itself.
