1- When doing a great blow-dry it is important to start by investing in the perfect tools. A professional blow dryer and brush is a must!
A boar bristle brush such as an Ibiza Brush is a great brush. The advantage of using boar bristle brushes is obvious if you have ever had a professional blow-dry. Your hair is sleek, smooth, and bursting with bouncy volume. And although you can contribute some of this to proper technique and good products, you will really see the difference.
Like a new pair of shoes, the more you use it the more comfortable and broken in it will become.
When using a blow-dryer, choose one that has different heat settings, Meleesa prefers ceramic blow-dryers as they steam the moisture out of the hair instead of heating it to remove the H2O. Make sure you are using the nozzle attachment at the end of the dryer it directs the air to focus on the area you are working on drying and will help to create a much sleeker look.
2- Apply product evenly. Choose your products based on the look you are going for.
Be wise when picking the product you choose to make sure your end result is what you desire. For example if you want to have sleek smooth hair, maybe choose Straight versus styling crème.
3- Start blow-drying with just the dryer and your hands. “Toss” your hair dry until it is about 80% dry.
4- Section the hair and clip away top layers, to work with clean sections.
5- The width of the brush will determine the width of your section, if you use a big brush you can do bigger sections.
