Finding the best hair dryer for you is one of the most difficult beauty decisions you can make. It must be powerful and hot enough to take your hair from soaking wet to perfectly dry and styled in minimal time, but not so hot that the tool damages your precious locks. And depending on your hair type, the right dryer for you may be different than the best tool for your friend. Problem is, hair dryers are typically a bit more expensive than, say, lipsticks or eyeshadows, making it tough to test them out without potentially losing some cash (and yeah, you could try taking your rejects back to the store, but not all retailers will allow you to return a used item). That’s why we asked Amazon for their top-selling hair dryers, and scoured the reviews for insight from the thousands of other women who’ve already tried them out. From a $10 no-frills tool to an innovative brush-dryer combo that promises a perfect at-home blowout, here are the five best selling hair dryers you can buy on Amazon.

What the reviews say:

“I don’t write reviews but…it does look like you just had a blowout from the salon! AND I don’t normally ’do’ my hair. Why? Too much time and work with too little payoff … I can NEVER get my hair to look as good as having a blow out at the salon, but my hair is smooth and bouncy.” — Doggiegrrrl

“Where have you been all my life?!” — Jen B.

“[I]t cut my hair drying time in HALF and it’s SO super easy to use. My hair looks so much better than when I round brush it with a regular hair dryer [because] the oval shape gives me better angles to use.” — sewgr8nct
