Instead of making your precious tresses any worse, it is better to keep in mind these common mistakes, so that in the future you will be able to avoid them and obtain the perfect tresses with these hair care tips.
- No sectioning of hair
Flipping your head over and over again to blow dry your hair until it gets frizzy isn't going to help your cause. Always section hair into the bare minimum of three sections as you dry.
- Standing while you blow dry
Standing up during throughout the drill can make your upper body tired. But when you're comfortably seated, you can fully harness that upper-body strength without getting tired.
- Holding the brush in the wrong hand
Mostly women hold the hairdryer with their dominant hand and use the brush with the weaker one. But what you don’t know is that you’ll get better results by holding the brush with your stronger hand and style your hair with even more finesse than professional hair stylists.
- Holding the dryer too close
Holding the blow dryer right on top of hair doesn't dry it faster, but only causes damage. Always make sure that you put the plastic nozzle in front to regulate and direct heat, and keep it at least an inch away from strands.
- Holding the dryer wrong
Always keep the drier nozzle parallel to each section of hair that you hit. Otherwise, the heat will irritate and roughen up the cuticle, leaving you with cowlicks and flyaways, damaging and smoking strands.
- Blow drying too fast
Blow drying is not a race against time. Be more methodical, careful and hold your horses. If you race through the process, you’ll find that you need to keep returning to re-do sections. If your hair dries quickly before styling it, keep a spray bottle of water nearby to spritz.
