A Hair Diffuser is an attachment to a hairdryer, with which the hair is dried more indirectly than with a normal blow-dryer
The English word “diffusor” means “aerator” or “air distributor” in German, and that is what it does.
With the diffuser attachment, the proper technique leads to more volume or defined curls.
Results of Hair Diffuser on different hair types
- When used correctly, a diffuser can conjure up the beautiful volume. However, the results will depend somewhat on your hair type.
- If you have naturally curly hair, then a diffuser can give the curls new zest and define them more beautifully.
- For naturally wavy hair, a diffuser can enhance the natural curls in the hair and make them more voluminous.
- If you have naturally straight and fine hair, then no diffuser can conjure up a massive mane of curls, but it can bring more volume, body, and movement into the hair.
How to choose the correct diffuser for your hair?
- If you wish to dry your hair faster or if your hair has a lot of volumes, “you need a toothed cup diffuser,” says
- Angela Soto, stylist and owner of Baja Studio in New York.
- “The airflow is a little stronger than most speakers.”
- If you have frizzy hair, you can use a sock diffuser.
- The gentle airflow “doesn’t disturb the curls at all,” Soto says, but she warns that the hair will take longer to dry due to the super-gentle air.
- If you have very tight curls, “use a hand-shaped diffuser,” suggests Soto.
- “The airflow is gentle, but it can insert fingers directly into the root without disturbing the length of the curls.”
Best Hair Diffusers

diffuser, which slows down the airflow speed and makes sure that each curly strand is gently dried.
- Although it was developed for the Drybar Buttercup and Baby Buttercup hairdryers, it will also fit other hairdryers with nozzles up to 5 cm wide.
2. SEGBEAUTY Hair Diffuser
- Provide your hair with the attention it deserves with the Segbeauty diffuser.
- It has a more profound and more giant bowl which allows for a good grip on your hair and avoids curl trouble and the staggering finger lengths are great for layered hair.
3. XTAVA (Black Orchid Large)

diffuser (fits 1.38-2.68 inch nozzles, so check the tips first. your measurements!).
