-CHEAT SHEET: HOW TO BLOWDRY-
*AFTER SHOWERING, BLOT WATER FROM HAIR AND STEP OUT OF THE BATHROOM.
Humidity is what causes frizz. Apply the appropriate styling products and comb. Some great Bumble products that control excess frizz are grooming crème and defrizz. Grooming crème is an oil based styling product that lightly controls frizz and gives hair a soft sheen. Defrizz is a silicon based product that fights stronger and more unruly frizz.
*REMOVE THE BLOW DRYER’S EXTRA NOZZLE AND SET IT TO HIGH HEAT AT A MEDIUM SPEED.
For fine hair, choose the lowest speed to keep hair from flattening.
*BLAST THE ROOTS, WHILE RAKING YOUR FINGERS THROUGH YOUR HAIR,
fluffing it to the left and then to the right. Stop when hair is 95% dry. Gather the hair that frames your face and clip it up.
*TO FINISH THE SIDES AND BACK, USE A ROUND BRUSH.
Reattach the nozzle and change the settings to high speed and high heat. Pull each section taut at a 90 degree angel from your face, running the dryer up and down the section, always pointing the nozzle down towards the floor.
*RELEASE THE CLIPPED HAIR AND ROLL IT AROUND A ROUND BRUSH IN SECTIONS.
Pull hair straight up toward the ceiling (or straight out at eye level if hair is long) and roll it back to the scalp before releasing.
*EVEN THE SLIGHTEST BIT OF MOISTURE WILL LEAD TO FRIZZ,
so hit the cool shot button for a few minuets at the end of blowout, and feel for any damp spots.
*RUB A PEA SIZED DROP OF LIGHT WEIGHT SERUM
between your palms and skim them over hair. Skip this step if hair is fine, and mist it with a hair spray like does it all.
-TIPS FOR FINE HAIR-
*VOLUMIZERS WITH A LOT OF ALCOHOL CAN CAUSE FRIZZ.
Look for an alcohol-free spray or mousse that has moisturizing panthenol (also called provitamin B5). Like Loreal Serie Volume Expand.
*A LITTLE LIGHTWEIGHT HAIR SPRAY CAN KEEP A BLOWOUT FROM FALLING FLAT.
Try Bumble and Bumble Does it All.
*TO PREVENT FRIZZ AND FLYAWAYS, SPRITZ A HEAT-PROTECTING SPRAY
