5 Steps to a Perfect Blow Dry
- After you take a shower, I recommend drying your hair with a cotton t-shirt instead of a towel in order to minimize damage and frizz.
- Now that your hair is damp rather than soaking wet, apply the heat protectant product throughout your hair. Really make sure that you rake it in well, and that no section of your hair is unprotected.
- Twist and clip the front section of your hair up. Some may argue to begin with the front sections. However, I usually start with the back and work my way forward. My advice is to do whatever you think works best for you. Experiment with your hair and learn what works and what doesn’t.
- With a round brush, begin blow drying your hair into sections, starting from under your hair and finishing off at the roots. This can be the most difficult step, especially if you’re new to creating your own blowouts. I know it can be difficult to try to brush your hair while blow drying, but just remember, it’s a process and it will get easier with practice. Repeat this process throughout the rest of your hair.
- Straighten your hair as needed if you want a sleeker look. Finish off with some serum and hairspray to maintain the look and prevent flyaways. You’re all set!
