Our goal is to find the best hairdryer for everyday use. Such a device should cost a maximum of 100 euros, or even much less.
Especially important for us with a hairdryer is gentle drying. A hairdryer whose functions cannot be varied is not usable. In addition, the volume should be as low as possible in order not to endanger or disturb yourself.
We regularly search the trade for Haidryers that meet our criteria.
The test field is determined by analysis and evaluation of customer reviews and external tests (e.g. Stiftung Warentest). The devices are then purchased anonymously from retailers. After completion of the test, we regularly search the market for new products and carry out supplementary tests.
In the run-up to the test, we defined practical requirements and the following test criteria:
- Functions especially gentle drying
In order to evaluate the individual criteria, we have defined a standard test in each case. For example, an application lasting several days is carried out to test everyday use. This is the best way to assess handling and results.
The volume, for example, is always measured at the same distance of a few centimetres. This corresponds approximately to the distance to the ear.
In our test we had to notice clear differences in quality. The individual Föhn's differed particularly strongly in terms of volume and handling. The drying is good with all devices and also the ion release, which prevents an electrifying of the hair, is built into all devices.
