Beauty 101: The Science Behind Ionic Hair Dryers
When it comes to hair dryers there are so many features and functions on the market it can be hard to keep it all straight! A current, well-loved feature is ionic technology. Ionic hair dryers have many benefits, due to the properties of ions. We love the 1907 by Fromm Zero7 Air Lightweight Dryer ($89.99 at Amazon) that allows you to "flip the switch to fabulous" with its cutting edge ionic technology! The benefits of ions are easier to understand if you look at the science behind them. And it's even easier to see the benefits firsthand when you try one!
THE SCIENCE BEHIND IT:
Ions are atoms that do not have the same number of electrons and protons (for a quick review, electrons have a negative charge and protons have a positive charge). When an ion has more electrons it gets a negative charge and when it has more protons than electrons it becomes positive.
Negative ions have the super cool ability to break up water molecules which are used by ionic hair dryers to dry hair faster. Ionic hair dryers also emit positive ions which open the cuticle to volumize hair or make allow for deeper penetration of deep conditioning treatments!
HAIR BENEFITS OF IONIC HAIR DRYERS:
- Negative ions break up water molecules to dry hair faster.
- Negative ions seal the cuticle to cut down on frizz and flyaways for smoother hair.
+ Positive ions open the cuticle to add volume.
+ Positive ions open the cuticle to allow deep conditioning treatment to have better results!
WHY WE LOVE THE 1907 BY ZERO7 AIR LIGHTWEIGHT DRYER:
+ Amazing ion technology.
+ A revolutionary motor that gives a faster drying time to save hair from damage.
+ Up to 18% lighter than competing hair dryers.
+ The quiet motor doesn't sacrifice high wind speeds.
