Heat gun vs Hair Drier

Is a hair drier enough to melt the glue on the screen of a mobile phone? I have to replace the screen on a redmi 5 plus and to do so I would have to use a heat gun, which I don't have, is a hair drier going to be enough?

Depends on the hair dryer, a heatgun if you put it long enough can burn a paper.

But maybe if you put it long enough the glue may melt down.

Yes, I've done it before with a couple of Samsung phones from friends, I did it in a ceramic cylinder though.
