Step-By-Step: How to Diffuse Curly Hair
This expert guide will get you perfectly defined, frizz-free curls
Step 4: Blow dry curlsStart by setting your dryer on low or medium heat and air pressure (yes, it takes longer, but it doesn't dry out your hair or cause frizz).
Then, tilt your head to one side and place the diffuser close to your roots and hold it there until dry. Repeat the process while tilting your head back and to the opposite side as well.
Naturally curly girls will want to stop here and let their ends dry naturally (it'll keep curls softer). For girls with wavy hair who want more curl, take your ends and lay them into the diffuser, then lift the dryer up towards your scalp and hold. Your hair will form a circular pattern inside the diffuser so you get curls. Repeat this process with small sections of hair until your strands are completely dry, otherwise curls won't hold.
