How do I use a hair dryer in Madagascar?

Malagasy power outlet

Will my blowdryer work in Madagascar?

First check that your hair dryer can handle the voltage in Madagascar:

If not then you can either:

  • Use a power converter [13] (or voltage transformer) - this will enable you to use your existing hair dryer and other applicances with a 127 volt Malagasy power outlet, however this is noticeably heavier, bulkier and more expensive than a dedicated travel hair dryer. A voltage transformer changes the voltage but won't change the shape of the plug on your hair dryer to fit in the power outlet used in Madagascar, therefore check that the voltage transformer includes a power adapter for Madagascar otherwise you will need to bring another power adapter. Please note - your own existing hair dryer might not be suitable for travelling and you could risk potential damage in transit.

Warning: If your hair dryer won't handle the 127 volts used in Madagascar you run the potential risk of an electrical fire hazard, a blown fuse or damage to your hair dryer. Before attempting to use your hair dryer in Madagascar please check the instruction manual first to ensure safe operation.

Choosing the best blow dryer for Madagascar

An ALCI safety plug

Choosing the best blow dryer for Madagascar

When looking for the best hair dryer choose a sturdy but light dual-voltage dryer that will operate with a 127 volt Malagasy power outlet power outlet, has a long power cable, a folding handle and an ALCI safety plug. For drying thicker hair buy a dryer with a faster 1600+ watt dryer and included diffuser.

9 tips for buying a blow dryer

  1. A hair dryer needs to be dual voltage to operate in Madagascar.
  2. Modern blow dryers could feature a 'cool shot' button for quickly cooling down the hair after drying to hold a style but this option is missing in more compact models.
  3. Don't get the cheapest dryer; as well as safety concerns there is also a greater chance that the dryer could fail during travelling abroad due to a flimsy construction.
  4. Try to look for lightweight travel hair dryers which are durable enough to survive being transported in luggage, models with a folding handle mean more space.
  5. Safe travel hair dryers include 'ALCI' safety plugs which will minimise the risk of overloading and starting electrical fires - models are identified with the two 'test' and 'reset' switches found on the plug.
  6. If you have thicker hair then you might need a travel blow dryer with a more powerful motor - a higher wattage ceramic model which includes a diffuser will dry hair much faster to avoid damage.
  7. The best travel hair dryers for styling will allow you to change the speed and temperature settings with high and low options - slower speeds with lower temperatures prevent damage to hair and faster hotter speeds will quickly dry hair.
  8. Hotel rooms in Madagascar might have a fixed mirror positioned some distance away from the nearest power outlet which could make it hard to style hair, therefore when buying a travel hair dryer find the lengthiest power cord possible.
  9. Rather than looking for expensive 3rd party attachments it might be more convenient and cheaper purchasing a dryer that includes a concentrator and diffuser.

BaBylissPRO Tourmaline Titanium with concentrator

Which is the best mini folding travel hair dryer with dual voltage?

  • If you want to dry fine and thin hair on the go then a ceramic 1200 watt Conair MiniPRO [16] is the most affordable mini ionic blowdryer available on the market.
  • For a folding hairdryer which is lightweight enough to transport in a handbag then a 10.5oz BaBylissPRO Tourmaline Titanium [15] is recommend. With a removable filter and tourmaline outlet that emits infrared heat for a shinier finish this dryer has options typically reserved for bulkier models.

Both are dual voltage mini hair dryers and when used along with the right plug adapter for a Malagasy power outlet they should work in Madagascar and fold conveniently making them small enough to be carried around all day for drying on the go.

Which is a good blow dryer for thick hair?

Thicker hair can take much longer to dry and will be difficult to do so without your hair turning frizzy. The best option for thick hair will be an ionic blow dryer and for curly thick hair we suggest a diffuser as both are able to manage and dry hair smoothly. Either an Hot Tools 1044 Ionic Travel Dryer [2] or the X5 Superlite Ceramic Ionic [14] are suitable because they both have powerful motors, ionic outlets and bundled diffusers - avoid buying a blow dryer with a motor less powerful than 1600 watts as it will struggle to dry thicker hair.

Madagascar power outlets and plug sockets

What electrical frequency is used with a Malagasy power outlet?

The frequency used in a Malagasy power outlet is 50 Hz.

What is the mains voltage in Madagascar?

The normal residential voltage used in Madagascar is 127 volts.

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

There are five types of power outlets used in Madagascar, types D, C, E, J and K with the primary power outlets being type D:

  • Plug Type C - This wall outlet (called a Europlug) is recognised by the two circular adjacent holes next to each other where the twin plug socket pins slide into.
  • Plug Type D - You can identify this wall outlet by 3 holes in a triangle shape for live, neutral and ground.
  • Plug Type E - You can recognise this power outlet by two adjacent holes with a metal grounding pin protruding from the top to form a triangular pattern.
  • Plug Type J - You can recognise the squashed hexagon shaped power outlet by 3 holes in a triangle configuration.
  • Plug Type K - This wall outlet (called a type K power outlet) looks like three large holes forming a triangular pattern for the live, neutral and earth pins.

A recommended power adapter to bring for using a 127 volt hair dryer in Madagascar is a Type D power adapter [6] - read the step by step guide below for full details of how to use a plug adapter for Madagascar. Note that unless you that have a dual voltage hair dryer you will need to confirm if you need to bring a voltage converter.

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

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 plug, base or handle. The location will vary depending on the make and model of your hair dryer, it should also be written on the box or in the instruction manual. Some dual voltage hair dryers will change automatically but other hair dryers will feature a button which allows you to change between different voltages depending on which country you are visiting.

  • A specific number such as 110V indicates a single voltage hair dryer. If this number matches the 127 volts used in Madagascar then you should be able to use your hair dryer with a Malagasy power outlet.
  • A small voltage range with a dash such as 100-120V also indicates a single voltage hair dryer which can accomodate small voltage fluctuations. If the 127 volts used in a Malagasy power outlet falls within the range shown on your hair dryer then you should be able to use it in Madagascar.
  • A larger range separated with a slash such as 100/240V indicates a dual voltage hair dryer capable of being used in Madagascar or any other country.

How do I use a dual voltage hair dryer in Madagascar?

  1. Ensure that you are have a dual voltage hair dryer and it will work with a 127 volt power socket.
  2. If the dryer is dual voltage then make sure it is set to the 100-127 volt range. This is normally found on the base or handle of the blow dryer and requires a coin or screwdriver to switch.
  3. Plug your hair dryer into the correct power adapter for Madagascar, then plug in the power adapter into the Malagasy power outlet.
  4. The hair dryer can now be used with a Malagasy power outlet.
  5. It's common on travel hair dryers which were purchased in a country that operates with 220-240V to work slower than usual when used with a power outlet that supplies 100-127 volts.

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

  1. Most models of dual voltage hair dryers have either a dial or switch which selects between 2 voltages however some hair dryers can automatically detect the voltage from a Malagasy power outlet.
  2. This dial or switch needs a screwdriver or coin to change the dryer to the correct voltage between the 110v-120v range or the 220v-240v range.
  3. As well as switching this over it is worth noting down the 2 switch positions because the painted numbers can occasionally rub off on certain models of travel hair dryer.

Travelling to Madagascar with a hair dryer

Can I pack a hair dryer in my carry on to Madagascar?

Folding travel hair dryer with cord wrapped for carry on

Can I pack a hair dryer in my carry on to Madagascar?

According to the TSA guidelines for hair dryers [21] there are no restrictions when carrying a mains powered blow dryer in your carry on luggage through airport security in the United States. The TSA also recommends that you should verify that your airline that is taking you to Madagascar will allow hair dryers onboard and that it will fit in the overhead bin or underneath the seat of the airplane. Packing the hair dryer in a dedicated heat resistant protective travel hair dryer case [22] leaves it easily accessible by airport security checks, it can be packed away quickly avoiding a tangle of cords in your carry on luggage (the TSA advices wrapping cords tightly around hair dryers). If you intend to pack fragile or expensive blow dryers in your hand held luggage then it is advisable to use hard carry on luggage [23] as this provides the greatest protection against knocks and drops during transit.

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

It is preferable to bring a dual voltage travel hair dryer instead of bringing an existing domestic blow dryer to Madagascar as it ensures that it will work with the 127 volt power outlets used with a Malagasy power outlet (as long as you use the correct power adapter for Madagascar). Travel hair dryers normally feature a collapsible handle and are lighter which helps reduce the size and weight when packed in travellers luggage compared to bringing a domestic hair dryer.

It is also worth concidering that packing your expensive domestic hair dryer might put it at risk due to potential damage or loss in transit by airline baggage handlers in Madagascar. The costs involved in replacing an expensive specialised blow dryer in Madagascar could be more than purchasing a cheap dual voltage travel hair dryer [2] and a suitable travel hair dryer case [22] before setting off .

Are there hair dryers in hotel rooms in Madagascar?

Hotel hair dryer

Are there hair dryers in hotel rooms in Madagascar?

Depending on the hotel and class of the accommodation a hair dryer might be available in the room, either packed in a bedroom cupboard, wardrobe or drawer, found in the bathroom or could be a slower air hose type. If staying in budget motels, hotels and hostels a communal hair dryer might be offered at reception, however that could involve waiting in turn for other guests. If you are uncertain about the hotel hairdryer policy then either check on the hotel web site or call ahead to your hotel in Madagascar 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 it when cleaning the room.

Guests who don't want to take a chance that a suitable or germ-free hair dryer is available should put their mind at rest by bringing their own Dual voltage travel hair dryer [2] or telephone the hotel in Madagascar to check before packing.

Power converters for Madagascar

Can I use a voltage converter with a hair dryer in Madagascar?

The correct model of voltage transformer [13] (or power converter) will allow a hair dryer using a different voltage to work using a 127 volt power outlet used in Madagascar. A power converter is more suited for travellers who want to bring along their existing hair dryer, but it might be more expensive to purchase a power converter than it is to purchase a dedicated dual voltage travel hair dryer [2]. In addition, a travel hair dryer can be substantially smaller and lighter than a power converter making a travel hair dryer more suited for packing in luggage.

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 heavy and expensive power converter [13] transforms a 127 volt Malagasy power outlet to work with a non-127 volt hair dryer, whereas a more lightweight and cheaper power adapter (or plug adapter) changes the shape of the plug on your hair dryer to slot into a power outlet in Madagascar.
