Blow-dry your hair – this is how it works!

Get a good quality hair dryer

To achieve a salon-like result, you need to invest in a good hair dryer and brushes. Ionic hair dryers are particularly well suited for this. The technology they use breaks down the water molecules faster, causing the hair to dry faster. The less the hair is exposed to the heat, the healthier it is. Ionic Air technology also reduces frizz and adds shine, leaving your hair looking smoother in the end.

Hair dryers and brushes are of great importance

Second, you need a brush that best suits your hair type and cut. Choose a good quality round brush that is the right size. The following rule applies here: the longer your hair, the larger your round brush should be. For short hair, a round brush with a diameter of 20 to 35 mm is sufficient. For medium-length hair, the ideal brush size is between 35 and 45 mm. If you have long hair, you should use a larger brush – preferably between 50 and 70 mm.

Do you have the right round brush for your hair length?

Take off the towel

Most women wrap their hair in a towel for some time after showering. But cotton towels cause friction, which can lead to hair breakage. Rubbing your hair with a cotton towel can cause frizz. If you wear the towel on your head for too long, your hair roots can be flattened. Use a microfiber towel instead, but only leave your hair wrapped in it for about 10 minutes after washing. Even better, let your hair partially air dry before blow drying it.

Free your hair from the towel!

Leave your hair partially air dry

Using a hair dryer on soaking wet hair can be harmful. So wait until your hair is at least 65% dry. And only then blow dry them. Brushing wet hair can also cause hair breakage as hair is weaker when wet. First blow dry your hair with your fingers only. Once it has dried a bit, you can shape and style it with a brush.

Be patient and let your hair partially air dry

Always use a heat protectant

When using hot styling tools, you should always apply a heat protectant spray to prevent hair breakage. Heat protectants contain polymers that form a barrier on the surface of the hair. Nowadays, most styling products also offer heat protection. So it pays to look for a product that offers multiple benefits.

Protect your hair! This step is pretty important

Start at the hair roots

If you want great volume, you should always start blow drying from the roots of your hair unless you have bangs. Then blow dry that one first. Brushes are usually too big to get close enough to the hairline. You can simply turn your head and massage your roots while you blow dry them. To style your hair, place the hairbrush at the roots of your hair and roll it down towards the ends. Once the hairline is dry, you can work the ends. Roll them on the brush to dry them.

From the hair roots to the tips

Dry your hair in sections

Separate the hair in three or four rows with the help of clips. Using your hairbrush, curl the hair from root to tip. For a shiny finish, it’s important to wrap the hair tightly around the brush as you pull it through.

Use the hair dryer nozzle

Using a hair dryer nozzle, the heat is concentrated on the cuticle and smooths it out, leaving the hair shinier. Concentrated heat is also less harmful. Aim the nozzle at the hair shaft, making sure it is always at least 5cm away from your hair.

Why do you need the hair dryer nozzle?

If you have curly hair, a diffuser will help keep your hair from frizzing, define your curls and give them a little extra bounce. These spiked dome-shaped attachments can be purchased separately and will typically work with most hair dryers.

And when should you use a diffuser?

Cool down and get ready

Allow your hair to cool on the brush before moving on to the next section. And when you’ve finished blow-drying your hair, blow it on with a stream of cool air from the hair dryer. This gives the hair more elasticity.

Finally, spray your hair with a light setting spray. Avoid using strong hold hairspray as it can leave your hair feeling messy and require you to blow dry it again the next day.

Enjoy the end result and have beautiful and healthy hair!
