When you are starting the hair drying process it is important to make sure you don’t overdo it with the heat. Using too much heat can leave your hair weak and more prone to breakage. You will know if the heat from the blow dryer is too hot if the stream of heat is too hot for the back of your hand. Additionally, blow-drying should occur at least 8 inches away, making sure to keep air moving from the top to the bottom of your hair.
Heat protectant is one of the best safety measures you can take to make sure your hair doesn’t become a victim of heat damage. Heat protectant is ideal to prevent moisture loss especially when blow drying to reduce heat damage. Here at M Salon all of our hair-stylists are highly trained and knowledgeable about what hair products are best for your hair type.
The Right Blow-Dryer
The right blow dryer should be at 1,500 watts. However, if you have curly hair high temperatures can be detrimental to the health of your hair so make sure to adjust the settings accordingly. Also, there are certain blow dryers that are more favorable for certain hair types. For example, the titanium dryer is ideal if you have a lot of hair and the ceramic or porcelain dryer is best if you have fine thin hair.
With a long mane of hair blow-drying can be an arduous process, but it doesn’t have to be. When you are working with a lot of hair, first gather the top sections at the top of your hair and secure it with a hair clip. Next, dry lower layers with a brush while applying more heat. Once the underlayers are dry hold them back with the same clip. Then focus on the top of your head starting with your roots and work your way to the ends once your hair is dry.
