I have found it is handy to have a small blowdryer in my suitcase when traveling. I can trust it to have enough power to dry my hair, while hotel blow dryers may not. I am also sure that my dryer is with me when the promised hotel blowdryer may be missing. The travel blow dryers with folding handles are light weight, compact and easy to pack.
When choosing a travel blowdryer, first look for something that is lightweight. You have to carry it in your luggage. Next, look for a long electical cord. The electical outlet is not always near the mirror in your hotel room. If the electical cord is not long, it is handy to carry an extension cord with you.

The Hot Air Brush is great for short hair. It dries your hair and curls it at the same time. This solves the problem of having to carry both a dryer and curling iron. Although, it takes too long to dry long hair with the hot air brush, it is perfect for short hair.
