In previous blog posts I have talked about the importance of using the right products for your hair but let’s not forget about the blow dryers. This week I will discuss the importance of investing in a really good one.
It is very important to have a good hair dryer. If you don’t have a good hair dryer, you can’t expect to have a good result. If you want a professional result you need a professional tool – simple as that. A good blow dryer should have the right power, speed and heat control.
The wrong type of blow dryer in combination with poor technique can be extremely damaging to your hair. If the hair dryer is too hot, it can cause severe damage to your hair and also make your colour fade faster. On the other hand, if it’s not hot enough or too slow, you won’t get the smooth result you wish for. Remember to always hold the dryer at least one inch away from the hair on the brush. That will not only give you the smoothest hair, but also make your blowout last longer. In addition, it will cause less damage to the strands. Also, if you don’t have a nozzle, it’s going to be really hard to get a smooth and professional result.
The heat of the blow dryer is very important and should be adapted to your specific hair type. If you have full and curly hair, you want to remove water with heat and fast speed. But if your hair is finer it’s good to slow down the process, with a lower heat, so you have enough time to build up the volume and get the results you wish for. Your blow dryer should also have a button for cold air. When blow drying hair, the warm air shapes the look and the cold hair seals it.
Invest in a good blow dryer for the long haul. A cheap one will not only be a waste of money but will also cause unnecessary damage to your hair, and we definitely wouldn’t want that to happen!
