How do I use my hair dryer in Liberia?

Liberian power outlet

Will my hairdryer work in Liberia?

Check that your hair dryer can work in Liberia:

  • If your hair dryer can run using 240 volts or can support dual voltage (how to check) then you'll only need to use a suitable power adapter listed on this page if the plug on your hair dryer won't fit in the outlet.

If not then either:

  • Use a power converter [13] (or voltage transformer) - this will enable you to use your existing hair dryer and other applicances with a 240 volt Liberian power outlet, however this is considerably bulkier, heavier and more expensive than a dedicated travel hair dryer. A power converter changes the voltage but not the physical shape of the plug on your hair dryer to fit in the wall outlet used in Liberia, therefore please check that the voltage transformer comes with the correct power adapter for Liberia otherwise you will also need to bring a seperate power adapter. Be aware that your domestic hair dryer might not be suited for travelling and you could risk damage in your luggage.

Warning: If your hair dryer won't handle 240 volts you run the potential risk of an electrical fire hazard, blowing a fuse or damage to your hair dryer. Before using your hair dryer in Liberia read the instruction manual first to ensure safe operation.

How to choose the best hair dryer for Liberia

A folding travel hair dryer

How to choose the best hair dryer for Liberia

When choosing the best travel hair dryer look for a sturdy but lightweight dual-voltage model that works with a 240 volt Liberian power outlet power outlet, has a folding handle, an ALCI safety plug and a long cable. For drying thicker hair look for a model which includes a diffuser that uses a faster 1600+ watt motor.

What to look for when purchasing a hair dryer?

  1. Don't be tempted to go for the cheapest travel dryer on the market, as well as safety issues there is a greater chance that the dryer could break during travelling abroad due to a poor construction.
  2. To work in Liberia your hair dryer has to be dual voltage.
  3. The safest travel hair dryers include 'ALCI' safety plugs which will reduce the danger of overloading that could start electrical fires, you can recognise these by the two reset and test switches on the plug.
  4. Modern hair dryers might feature a cool shot button for rapidly cooling down the hair after drying to hold in a style but this feature is lacking in smaller or cheaper models.
  5. Thicker or curlier hair may require a blow dryer with a stronger motor - a high wattage ceramic model that includes a diffuser will dry hair faster to avoid damage.
  6. Some hotel rooms might have a wall mirror installed away from a convenient power outlet making it hard to use the hair dryer, therefore find the unit with the lengthiest power cord available.
  7. Try looking for a lightweight travel dryer that is durable enough to survive being transported in luggage, dryers with a folding handle mean more room for packing other items.
  8. It could be more convenient to buy a hair dryer that is supplied with a diffuser and concentrator rather than scouring stores to look for more expensive 3rd party attachments.
  9. Ideal travel hair dryers should allow you to control both speed and temperature with low and high options; a slower speed with a lower temperature will reduce damage to your hair and faster hotter speeds can dry wet hair quickly.

What is a good hair dryer for thick or curly hair?

Thicker hair will take much longer to dry and might be difficult to dry without your hair going frizzy. The best option for this type of hair is an ionic blow dryer, if the hair is curly we suggest a diffuser as both are suitable to manage and dry hair smoothly without frizz. Either the X5 Superlite Ceramic Ionic [14] or a Hot Tools 1044 Ionic Travel Dryer [2] are suitable because of their powerful motors, ionic outlets and bundled diffusers, avoid buying a blow dryer with a motor that is less powerful than 1600 watts as it will struggle to dry thicker hair.

Liberia power outlets and plug sockets

What is the mains voltage in Liberia?

The residential voltage in Liberia is 240 volts.

What is the electrical frequency used in Liberia?

The frequency in a Liberian power outlet is 50Hz.

Which power adapter will you need when using a hair dryer in Liberia?

There are five different types of power outlets used in Liberia, types B, A,C, E and F with the primary power outlets being type B:

  • Plug Type A - This ungrounded plug outlet (also known as the type A power outlet) is identified by the 2 adjacent slots where the plug socket blades slide into.
  • Plug Type B - You can recognise this plug outlet by the two slots next to each other for live and neutral blades with a single hole below for the earth pin.
  • Plug Type C - This ungrounded plug outlet (known as a Europlug) is identified by the 2 circular holes next to each other.
  • Plug Type E - This sunken round power socket, also known as a type E power outlet or CEE 7/7 plug, can be identified by the two 4.8mm round holes 19mm apart from each other with a metal earth pin protruding in the top in a triangular configuration.
  • Plug Type F - You can recognise this plug outlet by the two 4.8mm round adjacent holes for live and neutral pins along with a pair of thin grounding clips at the top and bottom.

A Type B plug adapter [4] is suitable for powering a 240 volt hair dryer in Liberia; read the simple instructions below for full details of how to use a travel adapter for Liberia. Be aware that unless you that have a dual voltage hair dryer you might also need to use a voltage converter.

Which power adapter will you need when using a hair dryer in Liberia?

Dual voltage hair dryers

Is my hair dryer dual voltage?

Single voltage hair dryer

Is my hair dryer dual voltage?

An easy way how to tell if your hair dryer supports dual voltage is to look for either a sticker or numbers printed on the plug, handle or the base of your hair dryer. The location might vary depending on the make and model of your hair dryer and should also state in the instruction manual. Some dual voltage hair dryers might change automatically but other hair dryer models will feature a button which allows you to operate between different regions.

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

How should you change the voltage on a dual voltage hair dryer?

  1. Most brands of dual voltage hair dryers have some type of switch or dial which changes between two ranges of voltages however some models can automatically detect the voltage used in Liberia.
  2. This switch or dial requires a small screwdriver or coin to set the dryer to the correct voltage between a 220v-240v range or the 110v-120v range.
  3. Also it's worth noting down both switch positions because the painted numbers can sometimes rub off on some models of travel dryer.

How should you use a dual voltage hair dryer in Liberia?

  1. Check that you are using a dual voltage hair dryer or it works with a 240 volt power socket.
  2. If your dryer supports dual voltage then ensure it is switched to work in the 220-240V range. This is normally found on the handle or base of the blow dryer and requires a screwdriver or coin to switch.
  3. Plug the hair dryer into the power adapter for Liberia, also plug in the power adapter into the Liberian power outlet.
  4. It's normal for most travel hair dryer models operating within the 220-240 volt range to only work safely on their lowest setting; but the temperature should still be adequate enough for drying hair. Please check the manufacturers instructions to see if this rule is appropriate for your model of dual voltage dryer to prevent overheating.
  5. The dryer is now ready to operate with a Liberian power outlet.

Travelling to Liberia with a hair dryer

Can you carry on a blow dryer to Liberia?

Folding travel hair dryer with cord wrapped for carry on

Can you carry on a blow dryer to Liberia?

According to the TSA guidelines for hair dryers [21] there is no restriction on bringing a mains powered blow dryer in your carry on hand luggage through airport security in the United States. The TSA recommends that you should check that the airline which is flying you to Liberia will allow blow dryers onboard and that it will fit in the overhead bin or underneath the seat of the aircraft.

Packing the blow dryer in a dedicated heat resistant protective travel hair dryer case [22] leaves it easily accessible for airport security checks, it can be packed away quickly avoiding a tangle of power cords in your carry on luggage (the TSA recommends wrapping cables tightly around blow dryers). If you do intend to pack fragile or expensive blow dryers in your hand held luggage then it is recommended to use hard carry on luggage [23] as this offers the greatest protection against drops and knocks during transit.

Is it better to bring a domestic hair dryer or a travel hair dryer to Liberia?

Bringing a dual voltage travel hair dryer is preferable to packing an existing hair dryer to Liberia as it is safer to assume that it will work with the 240 volt power outlets used with a Liberian power outlet (as long as you bring the correct power adapter for Liberia). Travel hair dryers typically feature a folding handle and are much lighter, this will help reduce the size and weight in travellers luggage compared to packing a domestic hair dryer. Note that packing an expensive domestic hair dryer could place it at risk due to potential loss or damage in your luggage by airline baggage handlers. The cost and inconvenience of replacing an expensive specialised hair dryer in Liberia could be higher than buying a cheaper dual voltage travel hair dryer [2] and a suitable travel hair dryer case [22] before your trip .

Do hotel rooms in Liberia have hair dryers?

Hotel hair dryer

Do hotel rooms in Liberia have hair dryers?

It will all depend on the hotel or bed and breakfast and the quality of the accommodation. Hair dryers in hotel rooms are typically found in the bathroom, these could be of a slower air hose variety, or might be located in the bedroom cupboard, drawer or wardrobe. In budget hotels, hostels and motels a communal hair dryer could be offered at the reception but could involve waiting in turn for other guests. If in doubt about the hotel hairdryer availability you can either call ahead to the hotel in Liberia or check on the booking web site to find out if a suitable hairdryer available to guests. Hair dryers found in hotels are usable but typically rudimentary models with no diffuser and notorious for low heat and providing slower air speeds. For those worried about hygiene might want to remove any burnt hair from other guests on a shared hair dryer as room service might not have removed this when cleaning the room.

Remember, if in doubt either telephone ahead to your hotel in Liberia or bring a suitable dual voltage travel hair dryer [2].

Power converters for Liberia

Can I use a voltage converter to use a normal hair dryer in Liberia?

A voltage transformer [13] (or power converter) allows a hair dryer using a different voltage to operate with the 240 volt power outlet used in Liberia. Travellers who wish to use their existing hair dryer can use a power converter, but it could be more expensive to buy a power converter than it is to purchase a dedicated dual voltage travel hair dryer [2]. Also, a travel hair dryer can be substantially smaller than a power converter making a travel hair dryer more suited for packing.

What is the difference between a plug adapter and a power converter for Liberia?

Voltage converter

What is the difference between a plug adapter and a power converter for Liberia?

A heavy and expensive power converter [13] will convert a 240 volt Liberian power outlet to work with a non-240 volt hair dryer, but a more lightweight and cheaper power adapter (or plug adapter) will change the shape of the plug on your hair dryer to slot into a power outlet found in Liberia.
