The joys of curly hair. My straight-haired friends are always commenting on my hair. They seem to think I just wake up in the morning with a head full of perfectly controlled, bouncy, glossy curls. I wish. It's more like thick and frizzy when I get up.
To achieve my bouncy glossy curls, it is absolutely vital that you get the best hair dryer for curly hair you can find. And let's be honest, sometimes it's nice to go for the straight-look. So if your hair dryer can help you get both look, even better!
I've tried a lot of hair dryers in my time, and I have quite high standards! I want a hair dryer that lets me style my curly hair the way I want. And always (and I do mean always) to have NO frizz. That just isn't a look I every want! So I've tried out the best the market has to offer for hair dryers for curly hair and have reviewed my top three in this article. Take a look!

Well ideally we'd all go to the salon a few times a week (or better yet, have our own personal stylist pop round to our own home) to get the perfect look. But sadly, for most of us this is not going to happen! So if you're going to get the best look for your hair, you're going to need your own hair dryer. And if you've got curly hair, there's even more reason to get one!
So to achieve a frizz-free look, whether curly or straight, you need a hair dryer. Below is a great video explaining some techniques you can use when you have curly, thick, or frizzy hair.
Don't be put off by the number of different makes a models on the market. Yes there are a lot, but here are a few things to consider in making this purchase.
Sound complicated? It really isn't. And the good news is, I've done a lot of the hard work for you. You don't need to trawl through hundreds of product reviews in online shops, just take a look at this review of the three best hair dryers for curly hair, and you should be in a good position to make the right choice for you and reduce that frizzy hair.
All of the hair dryers selected in the top three are great. I'd use any one of them again. But, I did have my favourite, and you'll see in the reviews below why I ranked them as I did.
I pretty much liked everything about this hair dryer, and will explain more below. It lets me achieve whatever look I'm going for, straight or curly, fights frizz and has different heat settings. I found I could go curly or straight easily with this hair dryers and would absolutely recommend it to anyone with curly hair.
Where to start? For curly hair the lower heat setting and speed setting coupled with the diffuser attachment let me create bouncy curls every time. I wasn't damaging my curls with overly hot hair and I could control the frizz with the ceramic technology. A great professional look without the cost.
But it wasn't just about the curl. I created straight, glossy hair with this hair dryer. Powerful enough to straighten my curls out, frizz tamed with the ceramic technology, and protected from heat damage by the varying settings for heat and speed. Loving the flexibility this hair dryer gives me!
The only fault I could pick out for this hair dryer was that the cord is a little short. This is though, only a problem if you're not able to sit near the socket. Or you don't have an extension lead. I do my hair right next to a socket so didn't notice that the lead is slightly shorter than my previous hair dryers until I took a second look.
Amazing hair dryer for taming curly hair. I really could transform my hair into a smooth, glossy look with minimal effort. Very happy with the look this one achieved, meeting the challenge of achieving straight hair that lasts is quite an achievement!
This one may be the best hair dryers for straightening curly hair that I've ever used. It really did dry it quickly and sleekly. And there was no frizzy bits, not even at the hard to reach bits at the back. Definitely a triumph if you want to go straight!
There isn't a diffuser included with the hair dryer. You can buy one to attach on separately. And while I haven't tried this hair dryer with a diffuser, I imagine it would be great. The heat settings and power settings are set up to be used with a diffuser (low and gently is the way!) and the ceramic technology would tame frizz. But you do have to buy it separately. The only downside.
I didn't realise so much power could come with such a lightweight hair dryer. Amazing! And, like all good hair dryers on the market today, it is infused with ceramic and tourmaline technology to rid your hair of frizz. A great hair dryer for transforming your curly hair into a sleek "do"!
This is an amazing hair dryer for getting straight hair. It combines power with ceramic technology and various heat and speed settings to give you full flexibility. And what's more? It has an 8 foot power cord, so you can easily use this hair dryer when your mirror is a little further away from the power socket. Also, this is really handy if you're doing someone else's hair.
While this is a great hair dryer for taming curly hair and creating a straight look, it doesn't come with a diffuser. And I haven't found one that you can buy separately. So there really is only one look this hair dryer can give you; straight. And while it does this brilliantly, with no frizz and great power, you might miss the option to go curly too!
It's a personal choice. All three are great. But for me, if you want a hair dryer for curly hair, having the option to style your hair into a curly look is a great advantage.
So I recommend the Revlon RV544PKF 1875w Tourmaline Ionic Ceramic Dryer. It has all the features you need to create perfect curly hair. No frizz, not dried out ends and a style that lasts. It can also be used to give you a great straight look with a concentrator included alongside your diffuser attachment. A brilliant all-rounder.
