How to Blow Dry Your Hair
It would seem like a no brainer, but many women struggle with blow drying their hair. If you are one of those who can't get it to look quite the way you want, read on. There is definitely a proper way to blow-dry your hair. Tricks to remove frizz, do’s and don’ts with certain products, and even a particular way you should be angling your brush, will all contribute to your finished look. Here are some must-read tips to ensure your blow-out always appears salon professional! • Before you begin, be sure to towel dry your hair to remove any excess moisture—this will lessen drying time. • If using a smoothing product—work mid-length to ends. You don’t want to apply it to your roots as this will weigh them down and cause your hair to appear limp. For additional volume, apply mousse though-out and brush through to even out the product while your hair is still damp. • Divide hair into a minimum of 4 manageable sections and use clips to secure. Also, begin with the hair closest to your face—as your arms generally get tired towards the end and you’ll want the front to look the best! • Be sure to invest in a good hair-dryer that has a nozzle. This will allow you more precision in styling and help you to avoid frizz. For this, always be sure to point the nozzle from above and downward as you’re drying. • For a smooth blow-out, use a paddle brush
, going as close to your roots as possible. As you’re drying each section of hair, bend the brush slightly in order to keep the hair taught. This will add extra stretch to the hair for a sleeker appearance. Alternatively, for a wavy blow-out use a round brush (the smaller the barrel, the tighter the wave/curl). • Always blast each newly dried section of hair with a shot of cold (function on hair-dryer). This will allow the hair to set and will also hold the style better. • For added volume, you can use Big Hair Don’t Care
and you would apply this directly to your roots as you’ll want them boosted from here. Yes, learning to blow dry your hair will take lots of practice, but stick with it and you'll be a pro in no time!
