"I love this dryer because of its feel and function," Adam explained. "Its lightweight design makes blow drying easy on the arm while producing great wind speed and heat. It can really expedite your blow drying process."

But wait! Looking to show off your hair's natural texture? A diffuser is the tool you've been missing. This metal mesh diffuser is ideal for "calming down the blast of heated air to a more diffuse and managebale heat," according to the brand's website.

"Diffusing your hair to enhance its natural texture is a great way to prep your hair for beach looks," Adam continued. "This collapsible cloth and steel, mesh diffuser is great for traveling because it takes up minimal space in your suitcase or kit."
