Subject selection of gifts is always relevant. And did you know that the first place in the list of the most popular gifts for women takes a hair dryer? Perhaps before someone would be surprised this "unromantic" gift, but today, hair dryer - a welcome Present for many women of different ages. The more that modern hair - is not just a machine for drying, he can much more! What exactly functions should have a modern hair dryer - we will deal in this article.
It is interesting to have the word "hair" - it originates from the name of a warm Alpine wind called foehn. Over time, the "foehn" was transformed into "hair", leaving behind other names of the new device - for example, "Lorelei" or "breeze". By the way, there are such devices in Germany in 1900, but the then beauty to put her hair had to have great strength - the invention weighed about 2 kilos! Science does not stand still - to the 20-th years of last century, the novelty has already weighed "only" 850 For comparison: the modern hair dryers weigh about 300 grams!
What is the hair?
"Not very sensible question," - perhaps someone will think. However, the view that only need a hair dryer for drying of hair - is outdated! Today dryers are at least four classes.
The first group
simple hair dryers, having a nozzle
. Such hair need those who use the hair dryer only to the first destination - dries hair.
The nozzle of the hair dryer at the crevice, also called Hub
. At the base of it is round or oval, and then narrows - is necessary in order to supply air stream to the right place.
The second group includes those
dryers, which have more than one nozzle
. The most popular standard slotted nozzle after - it
. With it, by the way, it is linked most popular myth - saying that it serves to create the installation. In fact, this round nozzle with fingers used for quick-drying hair. Why is that? Firstly, it has a fairly high resolution, and therefore a large surface capable of drying quickly. Secondly, the fingers penetrate closer to the roots of hair woven into them, which ensures the supply of warm air is better than this may make crevice. Also, such a nozzle gives volume!
The third group consists
hair dryers, brushes or hair dryers, stylers (multistaylery)
. Such a device has multiple nozzles for straightening or alternatively, curling hair, including in the form of brushes. The most advanced ones are combined in one unit hair dryer, curling iron, iron is, brush ... Some among these hairdryers have special rotating parts that facilitate installation. Brushes also have a different shape and size, which makes it possible to create different effects. So, universal round brush with plastic teeth helps to create beautiful soft curls; brush with natural bristles give the hair shine; Brush with hiding teeth create a neat and smooth curls. This option is the dryer is ideal for those who like to experiment with his hair and styling!
The fourth and last group consists of
Professional device for drying and styling
, Most such devices, you can see in the hair and beauty salon.
Of course, the question deserves a separate sub-capacity dryer. Certainly, at first glance it may seem that it is best to focus on the most powerful model. In reality too powerful hairdryers (especially if it is a home, not a professional hair dryers) can be a lot of problems: using their own, easy to burn the scalp and the hair itself, without having to make packing!
In general, the power hairdryers varies between 200 and 2100 watts. For the same simple enough drying 400-800 watts. The same figure is suitable for laying thin, rare and obedient hair. If you - the owner of thick, long hair or hard - your choice on power from 1,500 watts.
Fan speed and temperature
Modern dryers have multiple speeds blowing air - between 4 and 12, as well as multiple-temperature (usually 4-5). If possible, use the highest temperature should be at least - better to dry your hair a little longer at low temperatures than daily overdry them on high. By the way, the heat can only be used for drying the hair, but not for installation!
Some hair dryers provided an opportunity to blow cold air - this function will lock the well installation. It is best to use this feature for each ringlet: drier and put hot air - immediately recorded in the cold for 15 seconds.

• Do I fit his weight?
• Are you satisfied with the length of the cable?
• Do I need to ring for hanging the dryer?
