How do I use a hair dryer in Niger?

Nigerien power outlet

Will my hair dryer work in Niger?

First check your hair dryer can work in Niger:

  • If your hair dryer can run using 220 volts or can support dual voltage (how you can tell) then you will only need to bring a suitable power adapter listed below if the plug on your hair dryer will not fit in the outlet.

If not then:

  • Use a power converter [15] (or voltage transformer) - you can then use your existing hair dryer and other applicances with a 220 volt Nigerien power outlet, however this is considerably heavier and more expensive than a dedicated travel hair dryer. A voltage transformer changes the voltage but not the actual shape of the plug on your hair dryer to fit in the wall outlet used in Niger, so check that the power converter [15] has the right power adapter for Niger otherwise you will need to purchase a seperate power adapter. Be aware that your personal hair dryer might not be suitable for travelling and you risk damage in transit.

Warning: If your hair dryer won't handle 220 volts you run the risk of a blown fuse, damage to your hair dryer or even an electrical fire hazard. Before attempting to use your hair dryer in Niger read the instruction manual first to ensure safe operation.

What to look for in a travel blow dryer for Niger

When choosing the best travel hair dryer for Niger look for a strong but light dual-voltage model which will operate with a 220 volt Nigerien power outlet power outlet, includes a long cord, a folding handle and an ALCI safety plug. When drying thicker hair buy one which includes a diffuser that has a higher 1600+ watt motor.

Things to look for when buying a hair dryer

  1. Rather than scouring stores looking for more expensive 3rd party attachments to fit the unique dryer barrel exactly it could be more convenient and cheaper to purchase a new hair dryer that includes both a concentrator and diffuser from the manufacturer.
  2. The most suitable hair dryers will give control of the speed and temperature with 2 options - lower temperatures with slower speeds prevent damage to your hair whereas a faster hotter speed can quickly dry thicker wet hair.
  3. Depending on the accommodation in Niger there could be a wall mirror positioned away from a convenient outlet which could make it awkward to style hair, therefore when buying a blow dryer find a unit with the longest power cord possible or use either an extension cable or a pocket mirror.
  4. Thicker or curlier hair could need a blow dryer with a stronger motor. A higher wattage ceramic model that has a diffuser will dry hair much faster to avoid damage.
  5. Look for lighter travel hair dryers which are durable enough to survive being transported in luggage, models with a folding handle will mean more space for packing other items.
  6. The safest travel hair dryers will include an ALCI safety plug which minimises the risk of overloading and starting an electrical fire; you can idenfity models with the 2 'test' and 'reset' buttons on the plug.
  7. A modern travel dryer could feature a 'cool shot' option for rapidly cooling down the hair after drying to hold the style but this feature is missing in smaller or cheaper models.
  8. Don't be tempted to just get the cheapest travel hair dryer, as well as safety concerns there is also a greater chance that the dryer could break during your trip abroad due to cheaper parts.
  9. To work with a 220 volt Nigerien power outlet a hair dryer has to support dual voltage.

Which is the best hair dryer for thick hair?

Thicker hair takes longer to dry and will be difficult to dry without hair turning frizzy. The best option will be an ionic hair dryer and for curly thick hair we suggest a diffuser as both are suitable to dry and manage hair smoothly. Either the X5 Superlite Ceramic Ionic [18] or a Hot Tools 1044 Ionic Travel Dryer [2] are recommended because they both have powerful motors, ionic outlets and bundled diffusers, avoid buying a hair dryer with a motor less powerful than 1600 watts as it will struggle to dry thicker hair.

Niger power outlets and plug sockets

What mains voltage is used in Niger?

Power outlets in Niger are 220 volts.

What is the frequency used with a Nigerien power outlet?

The frequency of the current found in a Nigerien power outlet is 50Hz.

Which travel adapter do you need when using a hair dryer in Niger?

There are six types of power outlets used in Niger, types D, A, B, C, E and F with the primary power outlets being type D:

  • Plug Type A - The wall outlet, technically known as a type A power outlet, is identified by 2 adjacent slots for live and neutral blades.
  • Plug Type B - You can identify this power socket by two thin slots next to each other with a semicircular shaped hole below for the long earth pin.
  • Plug Type C - You can recognise this power socket by the 2 circular holes adjacent to each other.
  • Plug Type D - You can recognise this power socket by the 3 round holes forming a triangle configuration.
  • Plug Type E - You can recognise this wall socket by the two circular holes 19mm adjacent to each other and a single long metal earth pin protruding from the top in a triangular pattern.
  • Plug Type F - This circular plug outlet, also known as the Schuko socket, can be identified by two 4.8mm holes 19 mm next to each other for live and neutral pins, plus thin metal grounding clips on the top and bottom.

A Type D plug adapter [8] allows you to use a 220 volt hair dryer in Niger - read the simple instructions below for full details of using a hair dryer in Niger. Be aware that unless you that have a dual voltage hair dryer you might also have to bring a voltage converter.

Which travel adapter do you need when using a hair dryer in Niger?

Dual voltage hair dryers

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

  1. Check that you are have a dual voltage hair dryer and that it operates with a 220 volt power socket.
  2. If the hair dryer supports dual voltage then make sure that it is switched to the 220-240V range. The switch is usually found on the base or handle of the blow dryer and requires a coin or screwdriver to turn.
  3. Plug the hair dryer into the correct power adapter for Niger and also plug in the power adapter into the Nigerien power outlet.
  4. It's common on most dual voltage hair dryers operating within the 220-240 volt range to only work safely on a low speed setting, but this temperature and speed should still be adequate for drying hair. Always check the hair dryer guidelines to see if this rule is applicable for your model of dryer to prevent the risk of overheating.
  5. Your dryer is now ready to be used in Niger.

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

  1. Normal dual voltage hair dryers have some type of dial or switch which toggles between 2 ranges of voltages although some hair dryers can automatically detect the voltage used in Niger.
  2. The dial or switch will typically require a coin or screwdriver to set the dryer to the right voltage between the 110v-120v range or the 220v-240v range.
  3. As well as changing this it is worth jotting down both switch positions because the painted numbers can occasionally fade on certain models of dryer.
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 will accept dual voltage is to check for either a sticker or numbers printed on the plug, handle or the base of the hair dryer. The location will depend on the make and model of your hair dryer and could also be written in the instruction manual. Some dual voltage models will change automatically but other hair dryer models will have a button which allows you to operate between different voltage ranges.

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

Travelling to Niger with a hair dryer

Are there hair dryers in hotel rooms in Niger?

Hotel hair dryer

Are there hair dryers in hotel rooms in Niger?

This depends on the individual hotel or bed and breakfast and the quality of the room. Hair dryers in hotel rooms are normally found in the bathroom, these could be a slower air hose variety, or could be found in a bedroom cupboard, wardrobe or drawer. If staying in cheaper hotels, hostels and motels a communal hair dryer might be available at the reception, however that could involve waiting in turn for other guests. If you are uncertain as to hotel hairdryer availability then either telephone the hotel in Niger or check on the hotel web site to find out what type of hairdryer is available for guests. Hair dryers found in hotels are adequate but are typically rudimentary models lacking a diffuser, notorious for providing slow air speeds and low heat. Those worried about hygiene might want to check for the grime from previous guests on a shared hair dryer as room service might not have removed this when cleaning the room.

For travellers who aren't sure that a suitable or sanitary hair dryer is readily available should put their mind at rest by bringing their own Dual voltage travel hair dryer [2] or telephone the hotel in Niger to check before packing.

Is it safe to bring a domestic hair dryer to Niger?

It is preferable to bring a dual voltage travel hair dryer instead of packing your existing domestic blow dryer to Niger (typically marked with 'For domestic use only') as it ensures that it will work with the 220 volt power outlets used with a Nigerien power outlet (as long as you bring the correct plug adapter for Niger). Travel hair dryers normally feature a folding handle and will be lighter which helps reduce the size and weight in luggage compared to bringing a domestic hair dryer. It is also worth bearing in mind that packing an expensive domestic blow dryer might put it at risk because of potential loss or damage in transit by a baggage handlers in Niger. The inconvenience and costs of repairing an expensive quality blow dryer in Niger might outweigh the cost of buying a cheap dual voltage travel hair dryer [2] with a suitable travel hair dryer case [23] before setting off .

Can I bring a blow dryer in my carry on hand luggage to Niger?

Folding travel hair dryer with cord wrapped for carry on

Can I bring a blow dryer in my carry on hand luggage to Niger?

According to the TSA guidelines for hair dryers [24] there is no restriction on bringing a mains powered blow dryer in your carry on luggage through airport security in the US. The TSA recommends that you should verify that your airline which is flying you to Niger will allow hair dryers onboard and that it will fit in the overhead bin or underneath the seat of the aircraft.

Packing the hair dryer in a dedicated heat resistant protective travel hair dryer case [23] leaves it easily accessible for airport security checks, it can be packed away quickly and should avoid a tangle of power cords in your carry on luggage (the TSA advices wrapping wires tightly around electronic items such as hair dryers). If you do intend to bring fragile or expensive hair dryers in your hand held luggage then it is recommended to use hard carry on luggage [25] as this provides the most protection against knocks and bumps during your journey.

Power converters for Niger

What is the difference between a power adapter and a voltage converter for Niger?

Voltage converter

What is the difference between a power adapter and a voltage converter for Niger?

An expensive and heavy power converter [15] will transform the voltage of 220 volts from a Nigerien power outlet to work with a non-220 volt hair dryer, whereas a more lightweight and cheaper power adapter (or plug adapter) will change the shape of the plug on your hair dryer to fit into a power outlet in Niger.

Do I need a voltage converter to use my normal hair dryer in Niger?

The correct type voltage transformer [15] (or power converter) allows your hair dryer using a different voltage to work using a 220 volt power outlet used in Niger. A power converter is more suited for travellers who wish to bring their existing domestic hair dryer, however it could be more expensive to purchase a power converter than it is to buy a dedicated dual voltage travel hair dryer [2]. A power converter is considerably heavier than a travel hair dryer making a power converter less suited for packing.

  1. Check that the blow dryer is either a dual voltage travel hair dryer [2] or can work with a 220 volt power outlet but if not then do not continue because you may create an electrical fire hazard, damage your hair dryer or blow a fuse. Before using a travel hair dryer ensure you have set it to accept 220 volts for use in Niger - please refer to the user guide for more information on how to do this.
  2. You will need to buy a Type B plug adapter [4] if the type of plug on your hair dryer isn't the same type of power outlet used in Niger. The plug adapter will fit different plugs on appliances from other countries into a power outlet found in Niger by changing the shape of the plug, however the adapter doesn't change the frequency or voltage of the hair dryer to work with a 220 volt supply.
  3. First plug in the Type B plug adapter into the Nigerien power outlet. You can identify this plug outlet by two thin slots parallel to each other where the blades go with a hole below for the longer ground pin. Please note that power cables with type B plugs which are rated at only 125 volts should not be used so please check first.
  4. Plug in the hair dryer into the Type B plug adapter.
  5. Turn on the Nigerien power outlet.
  6. Your hair dryer can now be switched on.
