Most of us have a hair dryer but many of us do not know how to use it properly, so that our hair is protected from the extreme heat it blows out. Hair can be badly damaged if a heat-protecting spray or the correct technology is not used.
Hairy dryer technology
Modern hair dryers are very advanced compared to those of the past. There was a day when drying your hair with a hair dryer would leave it static with hairs standing up on the top of your head. Old hair dryers also left hair frizzy and more brittle than before.
Today’s hair dryers have an "ionic" operation built into them which helps to smooth the hair and reduces the static electricity that gathers in the follicle. Some ionic dryers contain a variety of speeds and heat combinations so you can adjust to what suits you. They may also come with attachments such as a narrow concentrator, a pik and a diffuser.
How to reduce frizz from your hair with a hair dryer
If you use the cool air setting on a hair dryer you can keep frizz away. Spray a laminator onto your hair before you start to dry it. May sprays on the market will work across all types of hair, they are very useful for keeping those annoying flyaway hairs at bay!
Your hair should be damp but not too wet before drying regardless of whether you plan on using the cold or hot settings on your dryer. If your hair is really wet when you dry it, you may damage the cuticle resulting in split ends. To get the best results from your dryer, dry your hair in sections, separating it as you go along.
The above tips should help you understand how to protect your hair better and get the most from your hair dryer.
