There are some things in life that we just can’t seem to wrap our heads around: why chocolate isn’t considered a basic food group; why our at-home blowout doesn’t come out quite as bouncy and lovely as it does in a professional hair salon. While the first dilemmas will never cease to leave us scratching our heads, we believe we have the answer to the second. The reason your hair could be lacking the pizzazz of a professional blowout is perhaps due to the fact that you are doing it all wrong. That’s right, the answer lies in your (OK, our) hands. Not sure how to blow out the hair in right way? Fear not. Whether your hair is long, short, curly or stick-straight, Lokshair came up with six common blow drying tips.
Tips 1: Wipe the excess water
Dry the hair with a towel after washing firstly. Should not dry immediately with the wet hair.It will make a hair damage.
Tips 2: Leaving Out Heat Protection Products
Apply a heat protectant before the hair goes under the dryer.Just as you would apply sunscreen to protect your face from the sun, it is vital to apply some sort of shield to protect your hair from the heat. And detangle your hair with a wide-tooth comb. Don’t skip this step — no one wants to become permanently entangled with a styling brush.
Tips 3: Using the Smart dryer and Nozzle
Use smart blower dryer and make sure to throw a concentrator nozzle on it. Nozzles and other attachments are often seen as options, when they should be priorities. A concentrator attachment helps keep the heat focused and prevents frizz. Make sure the nozzle is horizontal and hold a few inches from the section of hair (about 15 cm).
Tips 4: Starting at the root
Dry the roots first by holding them taut with your fingers while directing the nozzle as close as you can to them. Then, proceed with drying the rest of the hair as described above, but work from the nape of the neck upward.
Tips 5: Sectioning Off Your Hair
Long-haired ladies : Part the hair by sectioning off the top middle area (about three inches wide) and securing with clips. Section the sides and back into 2 or 3 sections — depending on the thickness and length — and secure each section with a clip. Starting with the middle portion, dry the hair in sections using a barrel brush (size of the brush depends on the amount of volume you are going for) working from front to back. When using a barrel brush, aim the dryer downward toward the ends of the hair and move the brush and dyer down in unison to ensure even coverage. For you short-haired beauties, clipping is optional.
Tips 6: Applying the Wrong Air Settings
Use high heat settings sparingly (or never) and instead option for medium to low heat levels (it should feel comfortable against the back of your hand)to set the style.
