What is the average weight of a hair dryer?
Hair dryers weigh a little over 2 pounds on average, and, while it doesn't sound like much, 2+ pounds can start to get pretty heavy after it has been held over your head for a few minutes. In general, we'd suggest shopping for hair dryers that are less than 2 pounds if possible. If you have very long or thick hair, you should probably narrow your search even more to just dryers that are around a pound or less. Our favorite lightweight hair dryer is the Sedu Revolution Pro Tourmaline Ionic 4000i at 1.2 pounds.
