By default, curly hair needs more attention and care than other hair types—that includes products and tools. If you have curly hair, you know the struggle of using a blowdryer. The direct heat causes frizz, loses curl definition, and even increases the risk of hair damage.
To maintain the natural texture, a tool that you need for your daily hair care regimen is a diffuser. A diffuser has a particular airflow that is gentle to curly locks that won’t cause frizz. If you put the speed and heat to low, it will result in voluminous and healthy hair.
A diffuser comes as an attachable tool or as hair dryers that are specifically diffuser. There are a lot of diffusers in the market with different designs, technologies, and diameters. That’s why I have rounded up the best ones, depending on what you are looking for.
DevaCurl DevaFuser; Universal Hair Diffuser
This diffuser gives your waves and curls more shape and bounce while reducing frizz. Its new ceramic inner core helps preserve moisture and luster keeping curls frizz-free and shiny. It has a hand shape design with a rubber stretch grip on the bottom. It delivers 360degree airflow to completely surround curls even at the root which speeds up the drying process. It helps create body to the hair and lift it up due to easy positioning at the crown. It fits most available hair dryers that have a 2”-2.5” barrel diameter: 2” 2.5”.
Conair Volumizing Diffuser
This affordable attachable tool lifts hair while the diffused air gently dries hair. It helps maintain your natural curl pattern without causing frizz.

For best results, set to low speed and heat.
Bed Head Curls in Check Diffuser
The ceramic technology of this dryer tames frizz and boosts shine. The chill-out button releases cool air to set the desired style. It helps to get curl definition, lift, without the frizz. The hot is not terribly hot, which is great for curls and it is fairly quick to dry hair. This hair dryer is compact, travels well, and is easier to use but at the same time, the mouth is wide and covers so much more of your head. The prongs are just the right length to help you create volume. This one is great because it’s not an attachment but a blow dryer itself.
