Used for decades by professional hair stylists and in salons everywhere, hair dryers have long been a staple of hair styling arsenal. But you don't have to be a professional stylist in high school to get the job done with a hair dryer.
Known to safely dry curly strands while leaving even waves intact, dry hair dryers are actually every hair girl's BFF for curly hair. Don't believe us? Then just stop reading, go out to your local mall or grocery store and pick up that very same curly hair dryer (or going to the store to buy one) right now. We promise, we know you'll use it again.
So why do people love dry hair more than ever before? There are probably a few different reasons, and here's one: dry hair is easier to style. Sure, curls may look beautiful when straightened and frizz-free, but once they're frizzy and dry, they can feel a bit untidy.
If blow-dry hair feels too hot when you blow-dry it, try using a hair dryer diffuser instead. If you don't have the time or the patience to blow-dry your hair with the machine, try using the dryer as a diffuser to make it easier for you.
Hair dryers have been around for a very long time, and in fact, some of the first dryers were invented back in the 1930s. When we think of dry hair today, we often picture the hot iron, but dry hair has been around even longer than the hot iron! A hair dryer is really no different than an electric blow dryer, only now you use it to dry your hair.
Dry hair can easily be styled in any way you want, but you need to know how to use a dryer as opposed to a blow-dryer for curly hair. Use a blow-dryer only when your hair is still wet, or slightly damp, not when it's still wet and quite dry.
Dryer diffusers usually come in three parts: the dryer head, the brush head, and the blow-dryer. It's best to use a spray bottle of hairspray on your hair before styling to make sure your hair is still damp enough for this step. Once your hair is dry, put on your diffuser and gently roll it over your hair until it covers your entire head, making sure that your curls are properly coated.
Once the roll is complete, turn on your blow dryer and blow-dry as hard as you can until the roll looks like a brick. If you want to add some bounce to your hair, spray on some gel and you're done! The last step to styling dry hair is to apply hairspray on your head and then dry your hair for a smooth finish. If there is any water left on your hair after the dryer is finished, use a spray bottle to rinse it down with water to finish the day!
Dry hair can be styled just as quickly as normal, but you may want to consider a dryer diffuser. Diffusers make your hair look glossy and beautiful and help it stay in place for longer. Some people even use dryers to straighten long, curly hair, because they don't need to blow-dry the hair as much, and dryers leave your hair with less frizz.
Blow dryers are the most common style tool used for hair styling. Blow-drying hair is a fairly safe and natural way to style hair, and can be a fun way to add a little flare to your hair. There are many blow dryers to choose from, so you can find the right one for you depending on your own unique hair style. The blow dryer is great for adding shine to short hair or for a more polished look.
A blow dryer is also a great choice for styling dry hair because it can add a little bounce, but it isn't used as much as other styling tools like curlers. The blow dryer works great for dry, long hair too, although it does take some time. Most blow dryers also allow for blow-drying your hair when you brush it or comb it with a wide tooth comb and a small amount of water added to the brush for a smoother finish.
Blow-dried hair looks very shiny and can be a great way to add some real body to your hair, especially when blow drying it on its own, but it is not used as much as regular styling tools. So, whether you use a blow dryer to style your hair or if you want to get rid of that frizzy, lifeless look, take a few extra minutes to blow dry your hair with a blow dryer before using any blow dryer to give it a nice shiny finish.
