There’s a joke that says, “God made the world, the rest was made in Chinaâ€, and to some extent, that is true.
Due to the potential manufacturing cost savings of moving production to China, many companies have decided that producing their products out of China is in their best interests, and that number only continues to grow every year.
Unfortunately, not all American consumers are keen on supporting China-made products.
From concerns to the unfair labour practices to simply wanting to support the local economy, many Americans still believe in supporting American-made products.
This includes hair dryers.
Since the best hair dryers are also made by companies who manufacture other power tools, most are not made in the United States. But, there is a handful that is still made in American soil.
With that said, we’ve gone on to list 4 of the best hair dryers NOT made in China.
Made in France, the Harry Josh Pro Dryer 2000 has received numerous awards over the years.
In fact, American women’s beauty magazine, Allure, awarded this blow-dryer with its “Best of Beauty Awardâ€ in 2014, 2015, and 2016.
Looking at the spec sheet, it’s easy to see why.
Underneath the proverbial hood of this hairdryer is 1,875 watts of power and a cool-shot button. More importantly, you can switch between using ionic heat (best for sleek styles) and nonionic heat (best for volume), depending on what kind of style it is that you want to achieve.
And, while the Harry Josh Pro Dryer 2000 isn’t marketed as a portable or travel dryer, it’s not exactly too large to fit inside a travel case or suitcase.
So long as the price isn’t a concern, we don’t see any reason why you shouldn’t go for this hair-dryer.
- Most powerful dryer in its class
- A/C motor estimated to last 2,000 hours
- Patented ergonomic design
