Hair care appliances are basic items that can be found in most German households. The power consumption of a hair dryer is between 960 and 2300 watts. The annual power consumption of an average hair dryer is 65 kWh if used every day. This is about as much as the consumption of, for example, an iron or an efficient cooling device. Blue Angel eco-labelled hair care appliances achieve power savings of at least 30 percent compared to standard appliances. In addition, Blue Angel eco-labelled hair care appliances meet requirements for noise emission, the plastics and materials used as well as for product safety and durability. Moreover, the Operating Instructions include information on environmentally conscious user behaviour and product safety.
