How To Blow Dry Hair – Tips & Tricks For Styling Hair
So often we spend a precious part of our day trying to achieve a great blowout bar styles; to have it causes not hold up to the weather or an evening on the town can be frustrating. Is the blowout the problem, or what you are not doing before the Drybar blowout? The best idea is to have a style that can withstand humidity, wind, salsa dancing, and the super-attentive boyfriend.
1) Do not blow-dry your hair in the shower after showering. Avoid humidity. Find a separate area where you can comfortably do your hair without the steam.
2) Try sitting instead of standing when blow-drying – sometimes you get weak in the knees, and it becomes a bother.
3) When applying products, you often need more than one. Depending on your hair type, you can use a volumizing product at the top in the root area, and a smoothing product through the rest of the hair. The air from the dryer is scorching, so it is recommended to have at least three outcomes in your hair before blow-drying. Remember, if you don’t use products, you will always get the same results; hair with a mind of its own. I do this every day in the salon, and it works.
4) Hair clips are crucial; they will help you achieve quiet clean sections without feeling overwhelmed by vast sections of hair ends.
5) Having a nozzle on the hairdryer is highly recommended to properly guide airflow, creating more smoothness and shine on the hair. If you don’t have a nozzle, take your dryer to the nearest beauty supply – they can get you one that fits.
6) Be sure to apply products evenly, especially on the hairline – this is where some of us start frizzing shortly after blow-drying. When blow-drying you may want to start at the hairline, especially for us curly-hair folks.
7) Always use products; it will make blow-drying easy and give optimum protection.
8) The right shampoo and conditioners can make a big difference in your blow-dry. For example, if you have curly hair, use a shampoo to assist in fighting the frizz. For beautiful hair, a volumizing shampoo is needed.
Bonus Tip: Always thoroughly rinse conditioners out of your hair. It is essential to know that only leave-in conditioners are made to be left in the hair; as they have “scalp respect” – everything else should be rinsed off well.
Now let’s talk about the dryer. The one thing about a professional dryer is that when it finally burns out (after two years or so), it can be repaired. Compare that to a cheap dryer – honey, when it’s done; it’s done! There are so many choices on the market. Here are a few of my favorites that work well and are long-lasting. Solano, Elchim, and Bio Ionic are just some of my faves.
