Hair dryers are essential style items but not everyone can or are willing to, pay hundreds of dollars for one.
There are plenty of low-cost options for hair dryers, which you can use for years.
The best cheap hair dryer, in my opinion, is the Conair 1875 Watt hair dryer, which has the best performance for its budget price.
Similarly, you can purchase mini hair dryers that are also perfect for traveling.

How to Buy a Budget Hair Dryer
Here are some things you should know about buying a good hair dryer under $50:
Look for the wattage and make sure it’s suitable for the power outlets in your home. If you take your hair dryer when travelling, you will need to use an adapter. Preferably, buy a hair dryer intended for travel like Andis Micro Turbo mentioned above that has shortcut protection.
It goes without saying that you should get a hair dryer with multiple heat settings. Most offer 2, but there are ones with 3 or 4 settings listed above as well.
Nozzle attachments are definitely a plus. Some hair dryers, like Andis Ceramic Ionic Styler Hair Dryer mentioned above, comes with comb parts. These can help you style hair when blow drying.
The more powerful the hair dryer is, the faster your hair will dry. Low wattage hair dryers can take hours to dry hair. About 1800 wattage is suitable for drying regular hair in about 2 or 3 minutes. Most budget hair dryers can wattage between 1800 and 2500. If you want more power close to 3000 watts, you will have to pay more.
A cool shot button can help you set a hair style. For example, if you are combing and blow drying your hair, cool shots of air can keep the style you are going for in place. However, cool shot buttons are not necessary for all hair dryers.
Find a hair dryer with ceramic and tourmaline frills. These materials emanate heats in a very controlled manner and can also distribute heat more evenly. Tourmaline is a good material that can help hair retain natural oils when drying. If you have frizzy or curly hair, these two minerals are your friends. All of the above-listed hair dryers are ceramic or tourmaline (or both).
