I Ã¢m a regular reader of WiseShe and often share health and beauty tips with Anamika over mail. She asked me this thing about getting the right hairstyle and using the dryer effectively. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m a complete beauty addict and make sure that my hair looks perfect before any occasion party or office meetings or interviews etc. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d love to share what I know about getting a desired look using a perfect blow dry.
Step1: Hair wash
Yeah! To get a blow dry look, your hair need to be oil free. Clean your scalp with a good shampoo and make your curls soft with a right conditioner. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s just a normal hair wash with the purpose to cleanse the scalp and make your locks oil free. Dry your hair after washing but not rub-dry. You need to have atleast some amount of moisture and smooth texture in your hair for any styles look.
Step2: Apply styling product
You canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t achieve a set look without applying a good styling base on your hair. Some of the good options include leave-in conditioners, straightening balm, shine serum, thickening sprays or mousses etc. Choose according to your hair-type for example balm and serum for dry hair, sprays for limp and thin hair etc.
After youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re done with combing hair post the style applicants, you need to part your hair. The more sections you part your hair into, the better blow dry youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll achieve. Tuck each part with the help of a clip or roll above your head. Leave one section open to start with. Please note that for thick hair, donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t make bulky sections as it may result in an unset look of few locks.
Step4: Combine dryer and round brush
Here comes the trickiest part when youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re all set to get that immaculate look. Brush your hair with a round brush followed by the dryer. The dryer nozzle must face the part youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re setting and drying. While brushing, stretch your hair to the point when you feel that they Ã¢re all separate now and have started touting inside or reverse depending on the style you wish for. Do it slowly and you Ã¢ll know how to make it better and better as you do it for next time.
When you feel that your hair have a wavy texture and they bounce perfectly with the added volume which you get via blow dry, it’s the time for a final finish. Use a shiny serum for a touch up at the ends (only at the ends) of your strands to keep them intact. You will be all set to step out and blow others mind with your blow dry !
