Everyone wants to make their hair look as good as the Hollywood actresses on the red carpet. Many believe that in order to get celebrity like hair they have to spend lot of money. But that is not true at all. If you know how to blow dry your hair the right way, then you can get celebrity like hair instantly. Blow drying is an art; there is a step by step way to doing it. Read on, as today you are going to learn about how to blow dry your hair right way here.
1. Wash your hair
First step of course is to clean your hair very well. You can only get an effective clean if you are using a shampoo that is made for your type of hair. If you have dandruff in your hair, then use an anti dandruff shampoo to clean your sculp.
Another great way to make sure that your hair is completely clean is to leave the shampoo for 15 minutes and then clean the hair. Remember one thing blow dry cannot help if your hair is dirty. It will not work no matter how powerful drier you have.
After washing as usual put on a conditioner if you have normal hair, but if you have dandruff then avoid using conditioner altogether.
2. Cover your hair with a towel
After you are done with washing and conditioning, cover your wet hair with a clean towel for 20 minutes. Wet hair is more vulnerable to damage, so this is a very important step, if you do not have time to wait then avoid doing shampoo that day. Combing wet hair is a really bad habit and your hairs break because of that. Now do not ever rub your wet hair with a towel either as it will cause hair fall.
3. Separate your hair in small parts
Now start separating your hair in small parts, if necessary use clips to do this. It is very important that you blow dry your hair in small parts and not all the hairs together. When you are separating your hairs make sure that no hairs tangled with one another, if it is then fix it gently with your finger tips. Do not use a comb or a brush to untangle your hair at this stage as your hair is still wet and it will make the roots weaker.
4. Now take the dryer
You can adjust the speed and temperature of your hair dryer. First try with a low speed, make sure that you are drying your hair from root to the mid length of the hair. Never ever use the drier close to your sculp. After some time when your hair is used to the hot air, you can increase the speed, but do not use it at its highest level, too much hot air can also damage the hair texture. Do not dry the hair completely now, keep it half wet, this is very important.
5. Now use a roller
Use some rollers on your half wet hair to set your hair as you want. The best way to do is to use the hair drier in both sides of the roller. This is a very tricky step and if you know how to do it right then you will be able to set your hair like professional beauty parlors. Be careful when you are using hair drier and roller at the same time as if something goes wrong then it can cause some serious hair fall. If you cannot do it yourself then ask one of your friends to do it for you.
6. It’s okay if the hair remains a little dump
You must have noticed that how hair stylists wet the hair before they set it. This is why to set your hair perfectly you also need to keep the hair a little dump. Completely dry hair is harder to set and also looks rougher. Little dump hair is easier to control and also makes the color of the hair look brighter. The rollers also work better on little wet hair. In couple of minutes it will dry up naturally anyway, so do not worry about it.
7. Finish up with a cold air
Now here is the master step, to get a professional blow drying look always finish up the process with cold air. This will give your hair some much needed extra volume. All parlors use this trick to make the hair appear thicker.
Here are couple important things to remember about blow drying your hair
- Do not do it daily.
- Never use a broken or damaged hair dryer.
- Always make sure that you are holding the drier little far from your roots, so it does not get burned.
Blow drying does not ruin hair if you are careful.
