Off on your travels this year? Then buying a travel hairdryer might not seem like it should make the shopping list, but when you’re faced with the prospect of the hotel’s offering that is like a light breeze to dry your hair, you’ll wish you picked one up.

Below you’ll find a wide-ranging selection of travel hairdryers that will leave your hair soft, smooth and dry in minutes, rather than the hours you can expect from a hotel hair dryer.

With prices starting from as little as £8.99 and weight coming in less than half a kilo for most you’ll be happy you packed your travel dryer when you’re not sporting locks that are similar to Monica in Barbados, don’t let the humidity get you down.

The ghd Flight hairdryer definitely sits on the luxury end of the scale when it comes to travel hairdryers, but it’s definitely worth every penny when it comes to how it works.

As you can expect from the brand you get a high-quality dryer that will dry and smooth your locks quickly. This isn’t comparable to those dryers you get attached to the mirrors in hotels, it would quite simply blow them away.

Yes, it’s a little more expensive than a normal travel hair dryer, but admittedly, this is a tool that you’d use all-year round. The fact that it folds and comes in a handy travel case are just another two big pluses, it’s small and compact and stores away easily.

Get your hands on this tool quickly though, they’re limited edition and who knows how long they’ll be around for.

Lee Stafford Coco Loco Jet SetLee Stafford Coco Loco Jet Set

The Lee Stafford Coco Loco hairdryer was a big hit with us when it first launched, we’ve previously hailed the benefits of using coconut on our hair and this tool infused coconut with our locks whilst we style and dry it. Perfect.

This newly launched Coco Loco Jet Set is made up of a travel version of the Coco Loco hair dryer and comes with a mini Coco Loco Shampoo and Conditioner, all of which comes packaged in a stunning rose gold travel case. Everything you need for your travels.

While the dryer itself might be small, with a foldable handle, it’s still an amazing 1700 watts, with dual voltage, and a number of different heat and speed settings, as well as a cold shot button – all the design features you’d expect from a regular sized dryer.

Thanks to the coconut-infused grille on the dryer, your hair is left feeling smooth and looking shiny too. This handy little set is definitely something you’ll want to pack in your suitcase for your travels this year.
