Blow-dryer Power

Blow-drying is a diva’s ultimate tool – but if you are a hairdryer bumbler  – chances are, a hair dryer leaves you and your hair in shambles! So here are 5 tips that will ensure your hair responds well to drying and becomes your crowning glory instead of a disaster!

  • Section: It’s really not as difficult as it sounds. Also bending over at your waist and blow-drying until you get dizzy will not help you, or your hair! Once you have detangled your hair, keep duckbill clips or clutchers nearby – make a minimum of three horizontal sections and clip up the others.
  • The wrong hand: Table manners demand the dominant hand to hold the knife; similarly, it’s the brush you should be holding in the dominant hand. The brush needs to be moved with dexterity, not the dryer.
  • Pull up, not down: A naturally inclination is to pull the brush towards gravity – but that flattens the hair across the scalp – no voluminous mane then! Pull the hair halfway up towards the sky (okay, the ceiling!) – hold the brush at mid length. The hair till mid-length should be blasted upwards while the hair falling below can be styled downwards.
  • Smoking strands: Holding the dryer too close to the hair will only fry it and damage the hair cuticle. Also hair that is still damp is akin to spraying water on a hot pan – it will sizzle – and we do not mean that in a sexy way…
  • Too much, too sun: The cardinal sin of drying is drying the hair as if there were no tomorrow. A hair dryer is a styling tool – not an omigod-I’m-late-for-work tool – it’s better to let damp hair air dry their way to your office, rather than trying to dry hair by blow drying. Use a dryer on almost dry hair – with a thermal hair protectant in place and when you have the time to spare!

Hair products you absolutely must try:

Brocato Actives Restorative Hair Infusion Serum: A protective serum that actually repairs damaged hair. Nourishing oils penetrate the cuticle and create a reflective surface when sealed in with a flat iron. Hair has a beautiful, natural sheen and silky smooth texture. This reparative, shine-enhancing serum is the go-to-solution when a straight, sleek style is wanted. When applied before flat ironing, hair is infused with amazing shine. In limited testing, we have found that blow drying hair is 40% faster! CLICK to view product
