My guests always mention how much they love the hood dryer experience at the salon. It’s peaceful, it's warm, cozy and efficient. But most don't realize that they can have the same
drying experience at home! Hood dryers are not just for stylists. Let’s go over several benefits of hood drying.
1. TIME SAVER
I love to start my guests at the hood dryer when I first begin drying. You can rest or work during the process which makes this an efficient option. I highly suggest being a little extra and getting yourself a comfy chair and a side table to enjoy! Kids can also sit and watch their tablet or a show while drying and mom or dad can take a break from styling.
2. STYLING + LONGEVITY
Of all the drying methods, the hood dryer gives the most style longevity. Next, would be diffusing, then air drying. It helps gets the roots dry quickly and begins the gel casting process. It’s a great option for those with short to medium length hair to get most of their hair dry and they can finish off the ends with a diffuser. The indirect heat of the dryer provides even heat distribution, elongates curls and helps with definition.
3. DEEP CONDITIONING
A hood dryer is also an excellent tool for conditioning treatments. Heat helps the hair absorb the treatment better than without.
WHAT TO CONSIDER
1. Ensure the dryer has several heat and speed settings.
2. Hood size.
3. Do you want a timer?
4. Do you have enough space in your home? If not consider a countertop hood dryer.
WHERE TO BUY
You can find hood dryers at Sally Beauty Supply and Amazon; I have several in my salon Amazon shop that have great reviews.
Get cozy and free those arms!
