A Hairdryer that Dries Your Hair Faster for A More Intense Look
Use Deep Conditioner when Washing Your Hair
No matter thick or thin hair, you need to condition the hair deeply and lavishly. Experiment with conditioners and different brands. I found that hair mask works the best for my hair, leaving it amazingly easy to style afterwards.
To add to your hair care routine, explore the benefits of scalp facial at home. You may be surprised what you could achieve with them.
Towel Dry Your Hair Before Anything Else
Get rid of the water and allow your hair to get ready to absorb products and care you will be applying during the styling process. Dry hair carefully, without extra pulling and pressure, as vigorous towel drying can damage it, especially if you have dry hair.
Thermoprotection Is A Must for Your Hair
If you have a good thermoprotection product – apply it throughout the hair, allowing it to be protected from excessive drying.
Also, check out my detailed post on the natural hair care products that prevent and protect your hair from frizz.
Blow Dry Your Hair When It’s Still Wet
It will sound funny, but do try to dry your hair when it is more than 30% wet! Wet hair is more pliable to your styling and can be shaped the way you want.
Strategic Positioning of the Hair Dryer
Yes, you do want to keep a blow dryer further away from your roots. Plus, change the positioning of the air flow frequently and away from one and the same air for a long time. This prevents deep damage of your precious locks.
Use Quality Brands for Hair Dryers
Blow dryers with Ionic technology dry hair faster and with less damage. Use these blow dryers especially when you have to wash your hair daily.
Use Paddle Brush When Drying Hair
A quick tip here: Did you know that you speed up a drying process when using vent brush or a paddle brush? Use a round brush to style the way you want!
Know When To Stop When Drying Your Hair
Don’t overdry: You will know when your hair dry. Try not to overprocess it with extra hot air. The last stages of the hair drying is when your hair becomes most vulnerable to damage.
Finish Hair Styling with Serum
Once your hair is dry, use the COOL setting on your dryer to lock in the style and lock out frizz. Also use a pea-size serum to smooth our your locks.
Master Your Hair Care Without Giving Up
It takes time to master a way you deal with your hair giving it the best style. Don’t give up when something goes not your way. Keep training your skill! As we know, the second day of clean hair is the best.
