Before we jump right in, let’s take a look at some of the key features you need to consider when shopping.
Universal: Will this fit your hair dryer? Having a universal fit means the diffuser will fit most hair dryers with a nozzle design opening. Check this stat to make sure it will fit your hair dryer.
Collapsible: If you’re looking for something small, compact, and convenient for travel, you might want to consider a diffuser that collapses. Some of them get really small and are perfect to tuck in your purse or toiletries bag.
Material: There’s a nice range when it comes to materials. Some are made of silicone while others are made of hard, resilient plastic. Plastic ones are usually more solid while silicone ones are capable of collapsing a little smaller.
Heat Resistant: All of these are heat resistant to an extent. After all, they are going to be attached to a hair dryer that puts out some heat. But not all of them can handle high temperatures. Details in each review.
Weight: Weights range quite a bit, from nearly about 12 oz to less than 1 oz! This doesn’t directly affect performance, but you’re going to attach it to your hair dryer to use it. Make sure it’s light and comfortable.
Size: Generally, the larger the cup, the more hair it will hold. This usually means it will work a little faster and is great for thick hair. Also, make sure it’s compatible with your hair dryer’s nozzle!
