Blow Drying Hair
  • Wash your hair properly and apply a good conditioner, especially if you have dry hair. A good conditioner will help your hair retain moisture and make it soft and shiny.
  • To blow dry your hair, first rub it gently. Take a Turkish towel and blot your hair. Never rub your hair vigorously as it may damage your hair.
  • Apply a good styling product to your hair. If you want to keep your frizzy hair tamed, use a straightening balm or a shine serum. Start from the hair ends and work your way up to the hair shaft. For thin and limp hair, use a hair thickening spray. Avoid using hair gels that will make your hair appear thinner.
  • Once you have applied the hair styling product, comb your hair lightly to spread the product throughout your hair.
  • You can use a hair dryer to remove excess moisture from your hair. You can also allow your hair to air dry for a few minutes.
  • Divide your hair in sections and secure each section with hairclips. This will help you to work in sections as you blow dry.
  • Now blow dry each section of your hair from the root to the tip. Run your fingers through your hair as you blow dry. Using combs won’t help to dry hair completely and tiny water particles may stay behind in the hair shaft.
  • While using a blow drier, keep it about six inches away from your scalp. Otherwise, the excessive heat from the drier can dry up your hair follicles thus making your hair brittle.
  • Keep rotating the drier to avoid any damage to your hair or scalp. Always work your way down without concentrating too much on a particular spot.
  • Leave your hair slightly moist instead of drying it up completely. Too much use of a drier can make your hair tightly curled and damaged.
  • Once you have dried your hair, blow your hair once again with cold air.
  • Select a brush with long teeth and de-tangle your hair carefully. If you hair is too frizzy, a protein serum can be of great help. Avoid brushing your hair too vigorously as that will only damage your hair.
