A blowdryer or hair dryer is an electromechanical device designed to blow normal or hot air over damp hair, in order to accelerate the evaporation of water particles and dry the hair. Blowdryers allow better control over the shape and style of hair, by accelerating and controlling the formation of temporary hydrogen bonds inside each strand. These hydrogen bonds are very powerful (allowing for stronger hair shaping than even the sulfur bonds formed by permanent waving products), but are temporary and extremely vulnerable to humidity. They disappear with a single washing of the hair.
Def: También escrito hairdrier. Ex: Since then hairdryer design has transformed over time, largely influenced by changing fashions and society. ---- * blow hair with a hairdryer = secarse el pelo con el secador.
