Step 01: Pick the right blow dryer
Here’s a tip you are totally going to thank us for. When buying a blow dryer, always choose something that has the word ‘professional’ in its name. These blow dryers come with a turbo motor and help your hair dry faster. Additionally, since these products are sort of meant to be used every day, they work on a maximum wattage of 1800 to cause very little damage.
Step 02: Roughly blow drying wet hair
After you’ve stepped out of the shower, simply wring out the excess water by wrapping a towel over your head. Apply your hair serum and start with drying your hair without attaching the concentrated nozzle. Simply move the dryer from side to side while running your fingers through the strands and gently pulling at your roots. This will ensure that you get at least 80% of your hair dry.
Step 03: Divide your hair
Next, to achieve the voluminous look, you must divide your hair into four sections – at the crown, both sides and at the back. Secure it in place with a clip. Now is when you will bring out the concentrator nozzle and attach it to the hairdryer. Use a boar brush for this task. Unclip the section at your crown and use the brush to pull your hair upward to direct the air near the roots. This will not just dry the rest of your hair but also give your hair lots of volume.
Step 04: Give it a blast of cold air
In order to ensure that your blowout looks extremely shiny and polish all day long, seal it in place by giving it a blast of cold air by switching to the cold setting on your blow dryer. This will close the cuticles and a render a super glossy and shiny finish. Gently brush out tangles, if any and finish this look by spraying a bit of setting spray.
