Drying curly hair with a hair dryer is less straightforward than you might think because a blow dry that does not take account of your type of curly or wavy hair could end up producing a horrible frizz effect.
To prevent this from happening, it is important to use the hair dryer for as little time as possible, minimising your hair’s exposure to the direct heat of the device.
One piece of advice is to avoid pointing and holding the hair dryer too close to your hair, and to avoid setting it to the highest temperatures.
In addition, choose a professional hair dryer that is able to look after your hair, like the ones with ceramic and ion technology that we use in our Salons.
This specific type of hair dryer enables you to dry your hair quickly without stressing or damaging the hair cuticles.
As for the correct position to adopt, we can bust the myth that curly hair should always be dried with your head facing down!
In reality, the choice of whether to dry your curly or wavy hair with your head up or down should be made on the basis of the type, volume and elasticity of your hair.
As we never get tired of repeating, there are many different kinds of curls and every hair type and condition must be treated in its own specific way.
