Avoid these 7 blow-drying mistakes for a frizz-free hair

Are you one of them who thinks that no matter how much time you invest in blow-dry you are never able to style your hair like a salon? You have tried almost every round brush, ionic hairdryer/styler and hair serum but still not getting results. We are here to tell the blow-drying mistakes that you should avoid.

1. You are not holding the hairbrush and blow dryer at the correct angle. It would seem that pointing the hairdryer and holding it there for a while makes your hair dry faster. You shouldn’t do it anyhow. The hair dryer should constantly be moving or you might end up frying your hair. A good tip would be keeping your hairbrush vertical and blow dryer horizontal.

2. You are using the wrong type of hairdryer. Not all the hairdryer are created equal so it is crucial to know what you are working with. Ceramic dryers emit non-damaging infrared heat that dries the hair gently for added heat protection. Tourmaline hair dryers emit negative ions and infrared heat making the heat much gentler on the hair during styling for a frizzy and shiner finish.

3. You are using a heat-protectant product. Protectant serums, sprays and lotions are the best way to ensure your hair stays protected during styling.

4. The air setting of your hairdryer is too high. The different heat levels should be adjusted to suit your hair condition and texture.

5. You didn’t section your hair properly. You might not be separating your hair correctly, especially if you are plagued with the wonky-in-the-back business and dreaded.

6. You might be yanking at your hair with the brush. Drying taut sections of hair is the most important step but don’t over-pull or yank.
