Remove excess moisture with the use of microfiber towel
Blow-drying your hair while it is still soaking wet can possibly be the worst thing you can do to it. The first step is to always make sure your hair is dried to an extent where it can be subjected to blow-drying. Get rid of all the excess moisture by wrapping your wet hair in a microfiber towel or turban. Typical cotton towels are not the best fabric to get in touch with wet hair as it can be really harsh on your locks and can make them vulnerable to breakage while drying. Also, microfiber towels help in quickly absorbing the excess water, letting your hair dry in lesser time.
Prep your hair using the right products
Before styling your hair, it’s extremely important to pay attention to what your hair needs and demands and that totally depends on your hair type. Every person has different hair concerns and considering that, you should be using the products that can help you combat those problems. For instance, if your hair is dry and damaged with nasty split-ends, make sure to apply leave-in conditioner and split-end serum before styling your locks. So make sure to use the products that suit your hair needs and also give it a healthy appearance.
Powder dry your hair
Before you go ahead with styling your hair using a brush, make sure to towel dry it until it is 80% dried. Following this technique will help to save your arms and hands from unnecessary work or pain and it will also help you to get the best results. Using a dryer and also your hands, run them through your locks to absorb all the moisture. After making sure that your hair has almost dried, you can use a round or smoothing brush to style your hair.
Use the right brush
Using the right brush is the main key to achieve that perfect blow out. The first step is to remove tangles and knots from your hair using the wet brush starting from the end and slowly working your way up to the roots. We all know, wet hair is in its most vulnerable state and is extremely prone to breakage, which is why this brush is an ideal choice to deal with wet hair. And when it comes to styling, a boar bristle round brush is an apt choice for thin hair, whereas, a ceramic brush is an ideal choice for coarse hair.
Point the blow dryer in the direction of hair strands
While blow-drying your hair, always keep it pointed in the direction of your hair strands. This will ensure that your cuticle layer remains all smooth and also helps to prevent frizziness and flyaways. After making sure that a certain section of your hair has completely dried, you can run down the dryer in cool setting through your locks for added shine and a long-lasting style.
