Hair Dryers: The Physics of Rapid Evaporation####Hair Dryers: The Physics of Rapid Evaporation

The invention of the hair dryer has given hairstylists a powerful tool of the trade and the rest of us a quick way to dry soggy fireworks. Check out Groupon?s explanation of the science behind dry hair.

Given time, everything wet?even hair after a long shower?dries due to evaporation. When left to "air dry," hair slowly loses its moisture as the air scoops it up and converts it to water vapor. Hair dryers speed up the drying process by blowing hot air over the wet hair?a process that works wonders thanks to two key principles of evaporation:

  • Evaporation requires energy, and more energy?in this case, heat?helps break the bonds holding water molecules together more quickly; when those bonds are loose, the water changes states.

  • A pocket of air can only hold a certain amount of vapor before it becomes saturated. Thus, blowing air over the hair increases the amount of air that can potentially pick up the vapor.

All hair dryers consist of an electric fan and a heating element. As the fan pushes air down the barrel, it passes over the heat and emerges as hot air. Though some models heat coils of wire with an electrical current, others have ceramic heating elements, which can dry hair more quickly by producing the more radiant, safer far-infrared heat. Lately, many stylists have begun to adopt ionic hair dryers, which expel hot air with a surplus of negatively charged ions, reducing static electricity and resulting in smoother hair.

Since opening his own medical practice in 1986, Dr. Joseph S. Cervone has seen it all, from minor blemishes to serious skincare concerns. But what surprised the doctor most was the confidence and increased self-esteem his patients presented after he performed a cosmetic procedure for them.

This unexpected discovery led Dr. Cervone to begin slowly incorporating more nonsurgical procedures into his practice, with the goal of helping his clients feel even more satisfied and secure about their appearances. Eventually, he become the medical director of Concierge Skin Care, and since then Dr. Cervone and his friendly staff have helped restore youthful complexions with a range of aesthetic treatments ranging from microdermabrasion to laser hair removal and Botox injections.

The office can also help patients achieve more dramatic results with advanced procedures involving the latest ultrasound technology from VASER Shape, the skin-tightening powers of a Titan or Genesis laser, or spider-vein removal.
