Why you need an anti frizz dryer

anti frizz dryer

People with curly hair need to treat their hair a little differently than those with straight hair. The structure of the hair shaft is different, which makes curls more prone to frizziness. Also, because curls have a tendency to dry out (unless they’re well-hydrated), it’s important to use products specially designed for curly hair. Here are some tips for ensuring that you get the best out of your anti-frizz dryer when using it on curly locks:

As soon as you’ve finished washing your hair, make sure that you apply a curl-friendly conditioner or an anti-frizz cream from root to tip.

After you’ve applied enough product, use your fingers to gently detangle and then allow your curls to air-dry for about 30 minutes (or until they’re about 80% dry). Your goal here is to keep as much moisture in your strands as possible so that they don’t start drying out too quickly and subsequently become frizzy.


Let’s explore the science of why frizz isn’t just a side effect of styling, it’s caused by a lack of moisture in your hair. To combat this, you need to add moisture to your hair by using an anti frizz dryer or diffuser.

A diffuser will keep the air coming from your hair dryer from being concentrated in one place, which can lead to scorched ends and flyaway. Instead, it will spread out the air evenly over a larger area and help dry your hair faster without damaging its structure.

When you use a diffuser with your dryer, it provides even heat distribution to your hair. This reduces the risk of over-drying or damage from focusing the heat in one particular area.

A diffuser is an attachment that goes on the end of your hair dryer, and it’s designed to evenly distribute the heat from your dryer quickly and efficiently, so you can cut down on drying time (one less step).

Most diffusers fit right onto the end of your blow dryer where the nozzle would normally go. They are usually made out of plastic with little fins that allow hot air to flow through without causing too much damage to the delicate strands.

If you want more volume at root level, angle them upwards towards scalp while drying; if you prefer curls that swoop away from face instead, then turn them downwards so they will be closer to tips when curling later.

Drying time

Drying time is another important factor to consider when choosing the right dryer for your hair type. For most people, it’s important to get your hair dried as quickly as possible to reduce damage.

The drying time of various types of dryers varies greatly: diffuser dryers are the quickest, followed by ceramic/tourmaline dryers, and ionic dryers are the slowest. It’s also important to keep in mind that if you have thick hair, it will take longer for a dryer to get your hair completely dried (no matter what type of dryer you use) than if you have fine or thin hair, so use this knowledge when comparing drying times between different types of dryers.

Drying efficiency

The most powerful argument for a hair dryer is the way it dries your hair. For one thing, a dedicated drier will do its job faster than a flat iron. Since you don’t have to spend time heating up the tool you’re using, you can get to work on your hair right away.

Also, an anti-frizz dryer is able to evenly distribute heat over your head in ways that a flat iron cannot. With its many tiny metal plates, the flat iron concentrates the heat in whatever parts of your head are touching them at any given moment.

By contrast, driers use strong air currents to push heat all over your scalp. This even distribution guarantees that each section of your mane will be treated equally and given enough time to be totally frizz-free before being touched by cold air again.

In addition to drying more efficiently, an anti-frizz dryer does so in a healthier way than other options like blow dryers or hot spoons (which we know is not actually recommended). These tools produce too much concentrated heat and end up frying sections of hair into frazzled frizzle land instead of gently coaxing them out of their frizzy state.

A dryer with a diffuser is the best option for curly hair

Whether you have 2A curls or 4C coils, you need a diffuser. Diffusers are designed for curly hair and the way they work involves distributing heat evenly to your curls without disturbing their natural curl pattern.

This helps speed up drying time, makes hair less frizzy, and lessens the damage that comes with rough towel drying. Your best bet is to get a dryer with an adjustable diffuser, so it’s easy to move around your head and adjust if you’re looking for more airflow in certain areas.
