With so many different hair dryers to choose from, it’s hard to know which ones won’t lead to dried out hair, sore muscles, and buyer’s remorse.
The Rusk CTC Lite is our top pick because it dries hair quickly without damaging it while still being lightweight and easy to hold. It also has seven different heat and speed settings to ensure that your hair looks like it’s in a commercial.

It dries hair quickly, can tamp down frizz better than any styling product, and depending on your dexterity, can also help straighten or curl your hair.
