10 Easy Salon Tips To Blow-Dry Your Hair At Home

Keeping your hair dry immediately after a shower, a time in the pool, or a moment in the rain is a vital hair care practice. And all you need is one of these all-time best hair dryers

But without the right know-how, you’re likely to do it wrong. On the contrary, when you dry your hair the right way, it can become more silky, wavy, bouncy, and desirable. To that end, down below, I have compiled professional salon tips to blow-dry your hair perfectly while at home.

Here you go…

1. Start from the Shower

Regardless of your hair type or texture, you should ensure your hair is properly cleansed from the buildup of hair products you’ve used over time. Use shampoo to clear off specks of dirt and oil build-up— occasionally though —  and afterward, a conditioner with moisturizing ingredients like glycerin for this effect.

2. Towel-Dry With A Microfiber Towel

Hair treatments are delicate, and you’ll not want to apply just anything on your hair, even if it’s not a hair product. This is the same way using hard towels isn’t the best option before blow-drying, as it causes more friction. Then, it becomes worse if you dry off aggressively. Instead, use a microfiber towel to dry off dripping water from the hair before applying hair products.

3. Brush/Comb Your Hair

If you brush or comb your hair while blow-drying, you may be manipulating the effect of such a process by loosening your hair’s curls, styling your hair unevenly, and unfortunately creating the frizz you want to avoid. On this note, hair experts advise that you brush or comb properly for about 5 minutes because it produces oil and keeps your hair cleaner.

4. Clear away tangles

The best way to maintain uniform-textured hair is to gently clear away the tangles or knots that accompany a hard wash. A wide-toothed comb will do the job better so that your hair passes effortlessly through the space within the comb’s teeth without adding resistance. To do this, comb slowly and carefully from the ends, moving up to the roots.

5. Apply a leave-in product

A leave-in treatment ensures that your hair is properly moisturized before blow-drying. Not only that, it protects your hair from frizz-causing effects such as excess heat and humidity, by forming protective layers round about your hair strands.

6. Use the right products

As a curly-haired person, your best pick should be a diffuser, which keeps your curls uniformly while drying. Also, hairstyling experts advise that you use a gel, cream, or foam, alongside a leave-in moisturizer. And for a kinky or straight hair texture, you may do well with lighter babe cream, and a paddle brush to tame it while it dries.

7. Use a Heat Protectant

Use a heat protectant as you’ll use sunscreen against the harsh release from the sun. However, be sure to check the details of the product as to whether it should be applied to wet or dried hair.  

8. Dry Up Carefully

When drying, experts say to work your way up from the lower parts of your hair, like a down-up procedure. When drying the upper parts of your hair, you want to do it gently and carefully because of their exposure to heat and other elements. 

9. Do not rough up

Now, this might be a hard task but ensure you do not touch, scrunch, brush, or twirl your hair strands while blow-drying. This may roughen your cuticle. And of course, you don’t want a bad hair look after a tough day’s job of preparing to blow-dry.

10. Don’t sleep with wet hair

After all is said and done, do not give in to sleep when your hair is still wet. This, again, may be a hard task. Hairstylists warn that you don’t go to bed directly after washing and conditioning, with the hope that it would get dried overnight, so you don’t risk frizz on your hair. 

Wrapping Up

As opposed to the traditional air-drying technique, blow-drying seems more artificial, and as such, requires healthy supervision from professionals. This is to say that you should check up on recommendations from health experts against the dangers of a wrong application of a hairdryer.  That said, you can view my post detailing the 12 must-haves for your everyday look in autumn.
