I took my own Hairdryer and diffuser as I have curly hair and I was distraught on the first morning when I plugged them in with the adapter (US Style) and there was not enough power to work I was stuck with the hair dryer in the bathroom trying to scrunch dry - I dont therefore think that there would be enough power to work striaghteners either??? but not too sur.
