The 5 Best Travel Hair Dryers

When packing for an overseas adventure, less is generally more. Most people (myself included) attempt to pack light so they have room for souvenirs and aren’t forced to lug around a giant suitcase. So investing in a few quality travel products will help you save room for other travel essentials.

When determining what travel hair dryer to purchase, ask the following questions:

  • What is the total size and weight of the hair dryer?
  • Does it fold?
  • Does it have dual voltage capability so it can be used internationally?
  • Does it have enough power to get your hair dried quickly?

Below are the 5 best travel hair dryers that meet my requirements of being lightweight and compact, with dual voltage capability and a powerful air flow. They are ranked from my top choice to last, but really you can’t go wrong with any of them!
