HOW TO BLOW-DRY YOUR HAIR PROPERLY - TIPS AND TRICKS FOR YOUR MANE

Drying hair seems to be a real challenge. It is well known that the hot hairdryer is not particularly pleasant for your hair. But alternative methods such as the tried and tested towel or air drying don't seem to be optimal either. Voluminous, shiny hair only seems possible, if at all, with expensive styling devices.

A few products and tricks are enough to make your hair look professionally styled. In this article you will find out what you should consider to ensure a beautiful finish after blow-drying.

HOW DO I DRY MY HAIR CORRECTLY?

To detangle your hair, you can first try gently using a wide-tooth comb. Since your hair is subjected to high heat during styling, you should make sure to apply heat protection before blow-drying. This largely protects your hair from hair damage. Since the outer cuticle layer of the hair is softened when wet, it can crack open when the water evaporates when blow-drying. Heat protection nourishes your hair and moisturizes it. It forms a protective layer around your hair and protects your hair from split ends and hair breakage.

When it comes to hairdryers, we recommend a hairdryer with ionic technology and several temperature settings for more targeted temperature adjustment. The hairdryer should be held at a sufficient distance from the hair to prevent hair damage. A distance of at least 15 centimeters from the hair is recommended.

For thick hair, it is recommended to blow-dry the hair in sections. Give your hair volume by creating deep partings and using a brush to blow-dry your hair straight in the direction of growth. Blow-drying your hair in the direction it grows ensures a smoother, shinier end result. If the air flow goes against the natural direction of growth, the hair becomes roughened. If you blow-dry along the direction of growth, the upper cuticle is closed and creates a beautiful shine.

If you have thin hair, it is best to add a mousse or volume spray to your hair after washing your hair. Apply the product at the roots and leave out the lengths. This way you don't burden them unnecessarily. If you blow-dry thin hair in the opposite direction to its growth, you will create additional volume.

If you have curly hair, you should treat your hair with a special curling gel or foam before blow-drying and blow-dry your hair using the diffuser attachment. This is how your curls develop the optimal bounce.

WHICH IS BETTER, BLOW DRYING OR AIR DRYING HAIR?

The hairdryer is a true miracle weapon and dries dripping wet hair within minutes. But for the sake of hair health, many people choose to let their hair air dry. Otherwise there is a risk of heat damage and hair breakage. However, according to Korean dermatologists, the belief that blow-drying is more harmful than air-drying appears to be a persistent misconception. When comparing the different hair drying methods, it was found that air-drying hair is prone to split ends. Damp hair swells easily. This in turn leads to pressure on the cuticle. In addition, damp hair has less strength than dry hair. This makes your hair break easier. When used correctly, the hairdryer can be gentler than air drying.

IS DRYING WITH A TOWEL MORE GENTLE?

Many people also rub their hair with a soft terry cloth towel and then wrap their hair in the towel. This method is also not particularly gentle on your hair and its hair structure. Hair is very sensitive and even if the towel is fluffy for you, it is too rough for your hair. Drying your hair with a towel can mess up your natural hair structure, causing split ends, frizz, and breakage. A gentle alternative can be to gently dab and wring out with a microfiber towel or a cotton shirt, but this option does not create as beautiful volume as is possible with a blow-dry.

SHOULD I GO TO SLEEP WITH WET HAIR OR BLOW-DRY IT BEFORE BED?

When wet, the surface of your hair is roughened and therefore very sensitive. If your head moves during the night and your hair rubs against the pillow, your hair can quickly become split, frizzy, and more brittle.

Thick hair is less prone to becoming brittle or frizzy than fine hair.

However, you can be on the safe side if you blow dry your hair before going to bed. Dry hair has a smooth surface and is therefore not as easily damaged as wet hair. You can also prevent hair breakage and frizz by sleeping on a pillow with a satin cover.

HOW DO I BLOW DRY MY HAIR TO VOLUMINATE?

To blow-dry your hair voluminously, you will need a hairdryer, a round brush and medium-sized hair clips.

First, wring out your hair and dry it carefully with a microfiber towel or cotton shirt. Then you work heat protection into your hair. Avoid the roots, otherwise they tend to have a greasy shine. Then use a tail comb or your fingers to separate a lower section of hair from the rest of your hair. Draw a line around your head starting from your temples. Choose the section as thin as possible. This enables a more precise way of working and ensures a particularly voluminous result. Pin the upper sections of hair up with a hair clip.

Divide the bottom section again into two to three parts. Take a section of the separated lower section of hair and place the round brush at the hairline. Slowly comb the strand upwards while holding the hairdryer on the strand. Repeat this process until the strand is completely dry. Proceed in this way with the remaining sectioned strands. Once you have blow-dried the lower section of hair, move on to the next section of hair up. This is how you work your way up to the top layer of hair.

Once you have reached the top hair, you first part it with your comb. Now divide your top hair into several strands and proceed as with the rest of your hair.

If you have bangs, these will be styled last. The bangs are brushed downwards unlike the rest of the hair.

You can then fix everything with hairspray.

HOW DO I BLOW MY HAIR STRAIGHT?

While straightening with a straightener will wear out your hair quickly, blow-drying is gentler on your hair. This leaves the hair silky-smooth without looking flat.

The easiest way to achieve this look is with a round brush. Very long hair should be styled with a round brush with the largest possible diameter. You will also need hair clips and a hairdryer with an attachment.

After washing, wring out your hair briefly and blot it briefly with a cotton shirt or microfiber towel.

You first prepare your hair with a sufficient portion of heat protection.

Now set the hairdryer to the hottest setting.

HOW DO I WAVE MY HAIR?

First, work heat protection into your damp hair. Then knead mousse into your hair.

Then take a hairdryer with a diffuser attachment. Divide your hair into individual sections. You don't have to work as accurately and in small steps as you would with straight or volume blow-drying. It is therefore best to work with hot air. Now gradually place the individual sections on the diffuser attachment and move the hairdryer towards the scalp. Hold it in this position for a while and then repeat the step until the area is dry. Work your way through the individual games like this.
