We are sure that even many of our male readers have had some experience with hair dryers and the ease with which you can style and shape your wet or damp hair within seconds. Most hair dressers and barber shops have really cool and powerful ones nowadays that are best suited for men’s hair textures and demands. However have you ever heard of a hair dryer for your beard?
Well contrary to popular belief, hair dryers for your beard hair are a real thing! Yes, that’s right, even your beard needs some TLC when it comes to styling it out. However, as compared to conventional hair dryers, these products are usually more advanced when it comes to features such as moisture locks and temperature controls because the hair on your face needs that extra layer of cushion that normal hair dryers just cannot provide. However, why should the pros have all the fun? Since there has been so many amazing advancements in technology and such a boom in the varying prices of electronic gadgets, there is no reason why you cannot invest in a good hair dryer to use at home. And of course if you feel like buying a device simply for your beard is not justified, you can rest assured that all of the ones on our list today are versatile enough to handle the hair on your head as well!
We are listing down the top 5 products that we feel tackle your facial tresses best. These include some that are really big names while others that are relatively unknown, but you can rest assured that these are all top quality devices.
Best Hair Dryer For Beards
Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer:
Our first product is the Dyson Supersonic Hair dryer and we would call this one of our mid-range products that has somewhat of a fan following. After that, we introduced the best travel hair dryer for Europe. Though it isn’t as famous as a Remington for example, it is still a top contender with raving reviews online. Looking at some of its features might explain why that is so.
One of the main concerns that beard owners have while using any heat invoking products is that this will dry out their skin. That is a very real concern as well since the hair on our head is very different from our beards. However, that’s not a problem with the Dyson Supersonic as it has a system of controlling and maintaining the air temperature it gives out so there is virtually no heat damage. You also receive a pretty cool set of magnetic attachments such as a diffuser, a smoothing nozzle and a styling concentrator which makes this device a real professional model.
Another major problem for both head and beard hair is the fact that for wavier textures, hair drying causes frizz and unnecessary volume. This is controlled by the Dyson as the device produces negative ions that reduce the amount of static that builds up. You will also get 4 heat settings for whatever situation you are in such as gentle mode, regular and fast drying mode.
MHU Professional 1875w:
Moving on we have the MHU Professional that works at 1875-watt. This is also a pretty neat device as it has cool features which make it perfect for beard styling and drying. As far as speed settings go, they’re your average and generic ones with 2 speeds and 3 heat settings so you have the control over how much your hair can take.
In terms of what it offers, it is equipped with infrared heat which is not as harmful for the hair as opposed to traditional methods. This paired along with the negative ions that are emitted from the heating surfaces ensures that not only is your hair dried faster but also has the least amount of frizz. This also limits the damage that may come to your hair and speeds up the amount of time needed for you to dry.
It also comes with 2 unique attachments which are excellent for quick touch ups and styling purposes, especially if you have different hair textures. The diffuser dries hair while maintaining its volume and the airflow diffuser speeds up the process on areas where you need it to work.
Our next product is the Babyliss PRO which is one of our absolute favourites as it does its job really well. The defining feature of this product is that the heating surface is made of the finest quality porcelain ceramic which is known to be the ebst at effective drying and minimizing frizz. The ceramic feature also balances out the distribution of heat along the surface which ensures that your hair will also receive the same treatment. This minimizes damage of the hair due to excess heat. Your hair will be dried efficiently without ever being dried out from within as it allows the moisture inside the hair to stay locked. This leaves you with hair that is still shiny and soft but has been styled by your dryer.
The best thing after the ceramic surface is the fact that for such a huge dryer, the Babyliss PRO is actually really quiet and convenient as its motor runs smooth and runs quiet. This also means that you can use it bright and early and you won’t have to worry about waking anyone up or alternatively harming your ears in the process. The company claims that this device is twice as fast as the competition as it is super powerful, although some define that as its down fall as it can get a bit too extreme for some users.
Remington Pro Pearl Ceramic:
Next we have a product from the Remington brand so you know it will perform and it will perform well! There is just something about this brand that exudes an air of extreme confidence and reliability from the consumer as we have all been using Remington products for as far as we can remember.
The device has what it calls its pearl ceramic technology which basically means that the grills or heated surface has been infused with what the brand claims are crushed pearls. If that is indeed true; fancy and we are impressed! The pearls are said to nourish the hair with micro conditioners as the user dries their hair which helps prevent dehydration of hair. Since the product comes ready with a concentrator and a diffuser, you know that the product can be specialized to tackle shorter hair such as on the beard and basically all kinds of hair textures.
The device also comes with an impressive 2 year warranty which makes us happy as it shows the level of confidence the brand has in their own product and shows the commitment Remington has towards the needs of the customer.
Conair 1875 Watt Pro:
Finally, on our list we have the Con Air 1875 which is a heavy duty device, no doubt about it! One thing we noticed is that this dryer might be best suited to specifically straighter styles which can be a flaw if you’re looking for more versatility. This device’s specialty is to smoothen out wavy or frizzy hair and it accomplishes that well! This is done by the ionizing function that it is equipped with which helps it product negative ions that help cancel out the positive ones that frizzy hair builds up. This results in a super smooth hair style at the end. Once the frizz is gone, you will notice that your hair is shinier and looks softer.
The heated area is made up of tourmaline ceramic technology which ensures that your hair receives equal distribution of heat which reduces the risk of potential heat damage and also speeds up the entire process. Once you have selected your choice of settings with regards to speed or heat, there is a button on the device which allows you to lock that particular setting in place so that you may use it again at a later point in time.
The 5 foot charging cord is also pretty cool since it allows you some level of mobility; however we would have preferred one that was at least 8 feet long. The 5 foot cord is great if you only wish to use it to style your own beard, however if you want to style someone else’s hair, it might be short.
Sometimes with hair dryers, you feel frustrated because you are unable to control the air flow so this device comes with an airflow controller that ensures you are in charge of what segment of your hair is being styled at what time.
