Hairdryers: The Good The Bad And The Frizzy

hair dryer

Hair dryers are a fantastic invention! They help us to dry, direct, volumise and style our hair. However, using them in the wrong way can be damaging to our hair; and in extreme cases, they can cause hair breakage and lead to eventual hair loss. If you're using a hair dryer the correct way, you shouldn't worry. Drying hair can seem like a simple task, but drying your hair incorrectly can result in a frizzy, limp, or tangled mess. There are many different hair types, and each one requires special care. We will give a general overview that can be applied to most hair types.

As your hair is drying, it is starting to set into place. By using a hair dryer, along with a brush, your setting your hair in place where you want it to go. When the hair is dry, regardless of which product you put in it, the hair will naturally want to fall back into the general shape of where you had blow-dried it. Start blow-drying your hair from the roots, using a low or medium heat setting. If your hairdryer has a speed setting, use the medium setting. Try not to blow dry the ends of your hair. They tend to be the driest part, so the less heat you use on them, the better.

Detangle your hair when it is about 50% dry. Use a wide-tooth comb to do this. Work in small sections, starting from the ends of your hair and working your way towards the top. Never comb straight down from the roots, unless your hair is completely tangle-free. Doing this may cause your hair to snap and break. Spray some leave-in conditioner into your hair before combing it if it is tangled. Add in your favorite hair product. You can use some gel for extra hold, or cream to smooth away frizz and dryness. You can also add in a little lightweight mousse for extra volume. Put your hair into the desired style before it dries. As you comb through your hair, arrange it the way that you want to wear it. For example, you can twist a few sections into curls, comb it to make it straight, or fluff out your hair around the roots to add volume.

Contrary to what many believe, the quality of your hair dryer does matter. A worthwhile hot tool can make the difference between hair that's actually manageable and hair that you'd rather shave off and be done with. The two pillars of a good hair dryer are heat and control. Cheap hair dryers can also blow dry your hair pretty fast if they have a powerful motor. You might save some time with a top end model but it may not be so much as claimed, especially if your hair is easy to dry. So, in that sense, an expensive hair dryer may not be worth it. Look for an ionic or tourmaline dryer for thick, frizzy hair. Ionic or tourmaline hair dryers give off negative ions that help break up the water droplets on your hair for faster drying. Consider a ceramic or porcelain dryer if you have fine or dry hair.

The best way to dry hair is through a tailored drying routine. If you want more specific tips for hair drying for each individual type of hair let us know.
