Don’t you love it when you get your hair blow dried from a hair stylist? It makes me fall in love with my hair but the spell breaks the minute I wash my hair and they turn from fab to flat. Getting a stylist to blow dry our hair every time we wash them is a fairly land concept. Achieving that shiny smooth blow dried look at home may seem like a herculean task but you can master the art of blow drying if you follow these steps.

  • Always apply a heat protectant to protect your hair from the damage. You can also use a drop of olive oil or almond oil mixed with 2 3 drops of water if you don’t want to invest in a heat protectant.

  • Don’t start to blow drying your hair when they are super wet. It makes your hair more prone to damage. Start blow-drying when your hair is semi wet.

  • Use your hands to dry your roots to get more volume. The diameter of the brush doesn’t provide a proper lift to your hair.

  • Choose the right brush: Go for a bigger brush for a straight hair look and a smaller brush for wavy curls. Experts suggest that the brushes with a metal core provide a smoother finish.

  • Use blow dryers with the nozzle for an even distribution of heat of heat. Also, look for a blow dryer with options of controlling the temperature as well as the speed of air. It will be expensive than a normal hair dryer but this smart investment can save you multiple salon visits.

  • Divide the hair into several sections and securing the strands with large hair clips or grips.

  • Keep the blow-dryer moving constantly to avoid applying too much heat on a single spot. Work your way up blow-drying your hair from the neckline to the crown of your head so that you don’t hit the same strand of hair multiple times.

  • Before moving on to the next section set the previous one using the cold air setting. This will help you to lock the style in place.
