Andis 1875 Review | Overview

Ceramic hair dryers are popular as a hair dryer class and are recommended for home stylists due to their many benefits. The category has recommendations to fit every budget. Professional stylists recommend ceramic dryers for their ability to self-regulate heat and dry hair in a uniform manner. It’s an efficient system that can produce solid hairstyle results.

Ceramic dryers incorporate the latest technologies including ionic, tourmaline or a combination of the two. There’s also the option of choosing an economy or professional model. The latter has a greater selection in speed, power, heat setting, and drying technology. The Andis 1875 Watt Professional Ceramic Ionic Hair Dryer provides salon quality performance in a package designed for travel.

And, Andis adds further value by attaching a 5-year warranty.

Andis built this dryer with three speed/temperature settings including a cool shot setting. As a professional level dryer with ionic technology, it dries hair quickly.
