Revlon 1875W Infrared Hair Dryer

Buying a new hair dryer can be more complicated than just going to the store and grabbing one off the shelves. Not only does it need to be in budget (bye bye, Dyson), it also needs to be lightweight, come in the appropriate wattage (as to not blow any fuses), and feature ionic technology (to reduce frizz) as well as a ceramic coating (to protect against damage). One that checks all these boxes and just so happens to be the best selling hair dryer on Amazon at time of writing? The Revlon 1875W Infrared.

The $17 hair dryer has received 621 verified five-star reviews. Customers have called it “the best hair dryer I have ever purchased.” Not only do fans love it for its chic coloring, affordable price, and quiet airflow, but they also sing the praises of how its high wattage also just so happens to cut down drying time—even on thick, curly hair.

If you’re looking for a fancy dryer with a lot of settings, you might want to look elsewhere. This simple dryer comes with two head speed settings (hot and warm on one button, and high and low on another), a cool blast button, and two different attachments (a smoothing concentrator and a volumizing diffuser). But if you want a simple tool that gets the job done, look no further: Other five-star reviews applaud its ergonomic design (“Love that the buttons are not in a location where you turn off the dryer when holding”), its damage-resistance technology (“leaves my hair silky without burning heat”), and barely noticeable weight (“Almost weightless… very little fatigue when drying thick hair”).
