Put the nozzle on your dryer and, beginning with the nape section, wrap a 2- to 4-inch section of hair around the brush and pull as taut as you can. "Keeping the hair taut is 50 percent of the battle" Ring says. "The other 50 percent is the direction of the airflow! Ensure that your dryer nozzle is pointing down the hair shaft from roots to ends." Expert tip: Ring suggests sitting in a chair while blow drying -- it can be easier on the arms.
When each section is completely dry, use the "cool shot" to finish it.
