The Struggle of Wet Hair

First up, let's tackle the biggest myth of all: that blow-drying is bad for your hair. In reality, it's not the blow-drying that damages hair, but the high heat and prolonged exposure to it. Here's how to do it right:
  • Use a lower heat setting
  • Keep the blow dryer moving constantly
  • Don't concentrate the heat in one spot for too long
  • And of course, use a heat protectant!
Bam - myth busted. 😎
Next up, let's talk about the do's and don'ts of drying different hair types. Here are some tips for a few common hair types:
  • Fine hair: Use a diffuser attachment and a low heat setting to avoid frizz.
  • Thick hair: Use a higher heat setting and a round brush to get a smooth, voluminous look.
  • Curly hair: Use a diffuser attachment and a low heat setting to preserve your natural curls.
  • Colored hair: Use a low heat setting and a heat protectant to prevent fading and damage.
    Okay, now let's move on to the styling products. Here are some great options:
    • Mousse: Provides volume and hold for all hair types.
    • Hairspray: Helps keep your style in place.
    • Smoothing serum: Tames frizz and flyaways.
    • Dry shampoo: Absorbs excess oil and adds volume.
    Pick your poison!
    Once you've got your hair looking fierce, it's time to lock it in place. Here are some tips for using hairspray like a pro:
    • Hold the can about 10 inches away from your hair.
    • Spray in a sweeping motion from side to side.
    • Don't overspray - it can make your hair look greasy or crunchy.
    • Use a "workable" hairspray if you want to be able to brush through it later.
    • And don't forget to give your hair a good shake after you spray!
      One last thing before we wrap up: heat protectants are an absolute must when using heat styling tools. Here's why:
      • Heat can damage the hair cuticle, causing split ends, dryness, and breakage.
      • Heat protectants create a barrier between the heat and your hair, preventing damage.
      • They can also add shine and help your style last longer.
      • Some heat protectants even contain ingredients that help repair existing damage.
      • So, in summary: heat protectants = good. Heat damage = bad. 🔥
