Choosing the best blow dryer for Saudi Arabia

An ALCI safety plug

Choosing the best blow dryer for Saudi Arabia

When looking for the best hair dryer choose a robust but lightweight dual voltage model which will work with a 220 volt Saudi Arabian power outlet power outlet with a long power cable, a folding handle and ALCI safety plug. For drying thick hair look for a stronger 1600+ watt motor and included diffuser.

9 tips for buying a new travel hair dryer

  1. A cool shot button on a modern hair dryer will rapidly cool hair down after drying which will hold in the style but this feature might be lacking in smaller or cheaper dryers.
  2. To operate in Saudi Arabia the hair dryer needs to be dual voltage.
  3. Try to look for a lightweight travel hair dryer which is durable enough to survive being transported in baggage, models with a handle which folds mean more space.
  4. Buying the cheapest dryer is risky, as well as concerns with safety there is also a greater chance that the dryer could fail during travelling abroad due to a flimsy construction.
  5. The best travel hair dryers for styling will allow you to change the speed and temperature with 2 options, a hotter faster speed can dry thicker wet hair faster whilst slower speeds with lower temperatures prevent damage to hair.
  6. Safe travel hair dryers will include an 'ALCI' safety plug which minimises the danger of overloading the motor leading to starting electrical fires - you can idenfity these with reset and test buttons.
  7. Thicker hair might require a travel blow dryer with a more powerful motor - a higher wattage ceramic model which includes a diffuser will dry hair much faster, thereby avoiding damage.
  8. Instead of looking for expensive 3rd party attachments to fit the dryer barrel size perfectly it could be cheaper and more convenient to buy a new hair dryer which is supplied with both a diffuser and a concentrator.
  9. Hotel rooms in Saudi Arabia might have a fixed mirror positioned away from a outlet which makes it difficult to use the travel dryer, so search for the lengthiest power cord available or use either a hand mirror or a power extension cable.

Saudi Arabia power outlets

What electrical frequency is used with a Saudi Arabian power outlet?

The frequency from a Saudi Arabian power outlet is 60 Hz.

What is the mains voltage in Saudi Arabia?

The normal residential voltage used in Saudi Arabia is 220 volts.

Which plug adapter do you need to use a hair dryer in Saudi Arabia?

There are four types of power outlets used in Saudi Arabia, types G, A, B and D with the primary power outlets being type G:

  • Plug Type A - You can recognise the power socket by 2 slots next to each other.
  • Plug Type B - You can identify this wall outlet by 2 slots parallel to each other where the two blades slide into with a single semicircle shaped hole below for the slightly longer earth pin.
  • Plug Type F - This round wall outlet, also called a Schuko socket or type F power outlet, can be recognised by the two 4.8mm round adjacent holes where the pins sit along with a pair of two thin metal grounding clips above and below.
  • Plug Type G - You can identify this wall outlet by 3 slots containing shutters forming a triangular pattern for live, neutral and earth pins.

A Type G plug adapter [8] allows you to use a 220 volt hair dryer in Saudi Arabia; read the simple guide below for full details of how to use a plug adapter for Saudi Arabia. Note that unless you that have a dual voltage hair dryer you might also need to bring a voltage converter.

Which plug adapter do you need to use a hair dryer in Saudi Arabia?

Dual voltage hair dryers

How can you tell if your hair dryer is dual voltage?

Dual voltage hair dryer

How can you tell if your hair dryer is dual voltage?

An easy way how to tell if your hair dryer can support a dual voltage outlet is to look for either a sticker or numbers printed on the base, handle or plug of your hair dryer. This location might depend on the make and model of your hair dryer, it should also be written in the instruction manual or on the box. Some dual voltage models might change automatically, however other hair dryer models will have a switch which allows you to operate between different regions.

  • Single voltage could say a specific number - such as 110V. If this number matches the 220 volts used in Saudi Arabia then you should be able to use your hair dryer with a Saudi Arabian power outlet.
  • Single voltage could also have a small voltage range with a dash to accomodate small voltage fluctuations - such as 100-120V. If the 220 volts used in a Saudi Arabian power outlet falls within the range shown on your hair dryer then you can use it in Saudi Arabia.
  • Dual voltage will say a large voltage range separated with a slash - such as 100/240V. Your hair dryer will be capable of being used in Saudi Arabia or any other country if these numbers are shown.

How do you switch the voltage on a travel hair dryer?

  1. Most dual voltage hair dryers have either a dial or switch which selects between 2 voltages however some dryers are capable of automatically detecting the voltage used in Saudi Arabia.
  2. The switch or dial will normally require either a small coin or screwdriver to set the hair dryer to the correct voltage between a 220v-240v range or a 110v-120v range.
  3. Also, it's worth jotting down both switch positions as the painted numbers are prone to fading on certain models of travel hair dryer.

How can you use a dual voltage blow dryer in Saudi Arabia?

  1. First check that you are using a dual voltage hair dryer or it will operate with a 220 volt power socket.
  2. If the dryer is dual voltage then make sure it is set to the 220-240 volt range. This is normally found on the base or handle of the hair dryer and requires a coin or screwdriver to switch.
  3. Plug your hair dryer into the correct power adapter for Saudi Arabia, then plug in the power adapter into the Saudi Arabian power outlet.
  4. It's common on a majority of travel hair dryers operating within the 220-240V range to only work safely on a low setting - but this temperature should be adequate for drying hair. We recommend checking the manufacturers guidelines to see if this is relevant for your model of dual voltage hair dryer to prevent the risk of overheating.
  5. The hair dryer can now be used with a Saudi Arabian power outlet.

Travelling to Saudi Arabia with a hair dryer

Is it safe to bring my domestic blow dryer to Saudi Arabia?

It is preferable to bring a dual voltage travel hair dryer rather than bringing an existing domestic blow dryer to Saudi Arabia as it is safer to assume that it will work with the 220 volt power outlets used with a Saudi Arabian power outlet (provided that you bring the correct plug adapter for Saudi Arabia). Some models of travel hair dryer will typically feature a folding handle and will be much lighter, this helps in reducing the size and weight in luggage compared to packing a domestic blow dryer. Note that bringing an expensive domestic blow dryer could place it at risk because of potential loss or damage in transit by airline baggage handlers in Saudi Arabia. The cost and inconvenience involved in repairing an expensive quality domestic hair dryer in Saudi Arabia might be more than purchasing a cheap dual voltage travel hair dryer [2] and a suitable travel hair dryer case [19] before setting off .

Is a hair dryer allowed onboard a flight in Saudi Arabia?

Folding travel hair dryer with cord wrapped for carry on

Is a hair dryer allowed onboard a flight in Saudi Arabia?

According to the TSA guidelines for hair dryers [20] there is no restriction on bringing a mains powered hair dryer in your hand luggage through airport security in the US. The TSA suggests that you should verify that the airline who is flying you to Saudi Arabia will allow a blow dryer onboard and that it will fit in the overhead bin or underneath the seat of the aircraft.

Packing your blow dryer in a dedicated heat resistant protective travel hair dryer case [19] leaves it easily accessible when going through airport security, it can be packed away quickly avoiding a tangle of cords in your carry on luggage (the TSA advices wrapping cords tightly around electronic items such as hair dryers). If you intend to pack fragile or expensive hair dryers in your hand held luggage then it is recommended to bring hard carry on luggage as this offers the most protection against knocks and drops during transit.

Are there hair dryers in hotel rooms in Saudi Arabia?

Hotel hair dryer

Are there hair dryers in hotel rooms in Saudi Arabia?

It will all depend on the individual hotel or bed and breakfast and the class of the accommodation. Hotel room hair dryers are typically found in the bathroom, these could be a slower air hose variety, or might be located in a bedroom cupboard, wardrobe or drawer.

In cheaper hotels, hostels and motels a shared hair dryer could be available at the reception, however that might involve waiting in turn for other guests. If in doubt as to hotel hairdryer availability you should either look on the booking web site or telephone the hotel in Saudi Arabia to find out what is available for guests. Hotel hair dryers are usable but are typically basic models with no diffuser, notorious for low heat and slow air speeds. Those worried about hygiene should remove grime from other guests on a communal hair dryer as room service might not have removed this when cleaning the room.

For guests who aren't sure that a suitable and hygienic hair dryer is readily available should put their mind at rest by bringing their own Dual voltage travel hair dryer [2] or call ahead to their hotel in Saudi Arabia to check beforehand.

Power converters for Saudi Arabia

Will a voltage converter work with a hair dryer in Saudi Arabia?

The correct power converter [11] (or voltage transformer) allows your hair dryer using a different voltage to operate with the 220 volt power outlet used in Saudi Arabia. Travellers wishing to use their own domestic hair dryer can use a power converter, however it could be more costly to buy a power converter than it is to buy a dedicated dual voltage travel hair dryer [2]. Also worth noting, a travel hair dryer can be significantly smaller than a power converter making a travel hair dryer more suited for packing.

What is the difference between a power adapter and a power converter?

Voltage converter

What is the difference between a power adapter and a power converter?

A small, cheap and lightweight power adapter [21] (or plug adapter) will change the shape of the plug on your hair dryer to fit into a power outlet found in Saudi Arabia, however an expensive and bulkier power converter [11] transforms a 220 volt Saudi Arabian power outlet to work with a non-220 volt hair dryer.

How to use a hair dryer in Saudi Arabia using a type B power adapter

A step-by-step guide showing you how to power a hair dryer in Saudi Arabia by using a Type B power charger.

  1. Make sure that your hair dryer is either a dual voltage travel hair dryer [2] or can work with a 220 volt power outlet but if not then don't proceed because you may blow a fuse, damage your hair dryer or create an electrical fire hazard. Before using a travel hair dryer which can toggle between different voltages ensure the switch is set to the 220 volt setting, please consult the owners manual to find out how to do this.
  2. If the shape of the power outlet used in Saudi Arabia won't take the plug on your hair dryer you will need to bring a Type B plug adapter [4]. This power adapter will convert plugs on appliances from other countries for use with an electrical outlet in Saudi Arabia by changing the shape of the plug, but it doesn't change the frequency or voltage of your hair dryer to work with a 220 volt outlet.
  3. Begin by inserting the Type B plug adapter in the wall outlet. This wall supply, sometimes called a Type B power outlet [3], is recognised by the two thin slots with a semicircular shaped hole below for the slightly longer earthed pin.
  4. Next plug in the hair dryer into the Type B plug adapter.
  5. Turn on the Saudi Arabian power outlet. The hair dryer can now be used in Saudi Arabia.
