A professional stylist will always use a heat-protectant before styling your hair to avoid heat damage and frizzy hair, so why skip at home?

Section your hair before starting the blow-dry process to get the perfect blowout. Since you’re doing this on your own we need to ensure you have some muscle strength left to attend the event you’re going to. Therefore, section it in a way that you can easily take it to the front and yet get the perfect blowout.

Selecting the right brush is important step of this process. Opt for a ceramic barrel brush when doing blow-dry on your own. The ceramic body gets heated up, thereby giving your hair more shape and volume without having to put extra efforts.

Dry hair in one direction
 

Dry hair in one direction

Always blow dry your hair in one direction and keep some distance between your hair and the heat. Hold your brush under one section of hair and position the hair dryer on top, now drag the two together as the same time. Avoid frantic up and down motions as this will make your hair frizzy.

Use a light holding spray

Using a holding spray is important to ensure the look lasts all through the day or night, however don’t go for a strong hold spray. We recommend using the Toni&Guy Finishing Shine Spray to get the perfect look.
