Updated on July 7, 2009

Quiet Blow Dryers Reviewed

If you want to learn about quiet blow dryers, then you’ll want to read this article. As you keep reading you will learn about three types of blow dryers that are known for their power without the loud noise associated with other blow dryers. We’ll discuss cordless, dual-voltage, and wall-mounted blow dryers. If you put this information to use, you should be able to choose a blow dryer that suits your needs.

Cordless Blow Dryers

The cordless blow dryer is sought after by most people for its portability and convenience. This go-anywhere dryer is convenient when you travel or can be taken to the gym if you need to shampoo and dry your hair after a workout.

The cordless blow dryer’s power source is a rechargeable battery. In order to recharge the battery, you simply plug it into any outlet. This makes it very portable and very convenient.

Most cordless blow dryers are equipped with temperature control and different air flow settings. There are also available attachments that let you determine the amount and concentration of airflow. These attachments may come with the blow dryer as a set or sold separately.

Many professional hair stylists find the cordless blow dryer a convenient way to blow dry their clients’ hair. This allows the hair stylists to use the blow dryer anywhere there is no electrical outlet.

Not only is a cordless blow dryer convenient, but it is also a lot safer than conventional dryers. Many people have suffered electrical shock when their hair dryer came in contact with water.

You will find the cordless blow dryer lighter in weight in comparison to the conventional blow dryer. It is also less awkward to use since there is no cord to get in the way.

Dual-Voltage Blow Dryer

The dual-voltage blow dryer was developed to be used anywhere in the world.  The standard voltage in the US is 220 volts, but many countries use the lower voltage at 110 volts.  Therefore, many American-made blow dryers would not work in foreign countries.
The dual-voltage blow dryer works with 220 volts or 110 volts.

It may take longer for a blow dryer to heat up at 110 volts, but it generally depends on the brand of blow dryer.  Many are available that reach maximum heat in sixty seconds.

The obvious advantage of a dual-voltage blow dryer is its versatility when traveling abroad.  Most come with a thermal travel pouch which makes it convenient to use the blow dryer and pack it away without waiting for it to cool.

Wall-Mounted Blow Dryer

Ever wondered if a wall-mounted blow dryer would be worthwhile? This section of the article may have you “climbing off the fence” and running to get one installed.

If you are a daily user of a blow dryer, you will love the convenience of a wall-mounted blow dryer. The space you save in your bathroom by having your blow dryer mounted on the wall alone is worth the purchase. There are new models that have a built-in nightlight that saves an outlet space that you can use for a shaver or curling iron.
