There are numerous features and differences that set a good professional hairdryer apart from mainstream retail hairdryers. In this article we will outline a few features you should really consider when purchasing a new hairdryer, and look at what benefits they offer to the standard hair dryer user. One of the main characteristics of professional hairdryers, such as the parlux brand, is that they will have more powerful motors and therefore have a higher airflow. This is very important as the greater the airflow and more powerful the motor, the quicker your hair will dry.

Generally, it is worth considering the wattage of any professional hair dryer that you are looking at, as this will indicate just how powerful the dryer is. They can vary in output from 1400 watts to 2100 watts, with the higher wattage showing how powerful your hairdryer will be. Another thing to look out for is how many heat and speed settings your dryer has - All Parlux hairdryers come with two speed settings and two heat settings, as well as cold shot button, which allows you a variety of options so you can find the perfect combination for your hair type.

You may also want to decide whether you would like to invest in ceramic ionic editions, which is useful if your hair is prone to frizz as they lock the moisture inside the hair's shaft. Another factor which may influence your decision is the weight of the hairdryer; if you are planning on using it for a long period of time in a salon, you may want to consider one of the lighter professional hairdryers, such as the Parlux 3500 Super Compact. It is worth noting what additions, if any are supplied with your professional hair dryer. All parlux hairdryers have two concentrator nozzles in the box, which allow you to create all manner of styles, simply by choosing which nozzle you want to attach.
