How to Blow Dry Your Hair Like a Pro
Follow these expert tips for the best at-home blow out ever
Never hold the brush in one direction and the dryer in the other. The key to sleek, smooth hair is symmetry.
Don't apply too much product. Gunking up your hair won't help you get the style you crave; it will only weigh it down and prevent it from cooperating.
Don't try to dry hair that's too wet. Your hair will take much longer to dry and be unnecessarily exposed to more heat for no reason.
Don't over-dry your hair. It's a common mistake that can damage your strands. Ring says, "A lot of people think that running the dryer over the section hundreds of times will eliminate frizz -- it won't -- it'll make it worse!" Dry hair only until it feels dry to the touch -- blast it with cold air to help you determine if it's totally dry or not.
Do not move your wrist and shake your dryer around. This serves absolutely no purpose. Keep your dryer as steady as possible.
