7 Mistakes You're Making When You Blowdry Your Hair
🤦🏻♀️ •MISTAKE #1 : Your Hair Is Too Wet
"A lot of women start with sopping wet hair,. "Your hair should be 60-to-65 percent dry before you even start to blowdry with a brush."
•Mistake #2 : You're Not Giving Enough Lift
Did you read that? The roots! If you want some lift and volume (AKA the hair you have leaving the salon), use your hands to comb your roots up and blow-dry. (Since the diameter of a brush won't allow you to get too close to the roots, this is an important step to give your hair some oomph, explains Cutler.)
•MISTAKE #3 : You're Starting in the Wrong Place
Cutler says that many women who use a brush end up wrapping the hair around it and blasting it with heat. Which is apparently not only a no, but it actually takes so much longer than doing it the right way. "Put your round brush in at the roots, roll the brush down to the ends then take it back up to the roots, concentrating your blowdryer on that area and your hairline first." By the time your roots and your hair midway down is dry, your ends should be pretty close. "Then start to roll the ends on the brush and finish drying."
•MISTAKE #4 : You're Not Using Your Products Correctly
When it comes to applying product, we can be like kindergartners in finger-painting class. The idea is to use them sparingly, the right way, and in the right place. "If you're going for volume, you want to concentrate product at the roots—since putting the products on your ends will pull your hair down."
•MISTAKE #5 : You're Not Using the Right Brush
"The bigger the brush, the smoother the hair,"
•Mistake #6 : You're Not Letting Your Hair "Set"
Brush, dry, run? Stop! "Letting your hair cool down on the brush before moving on to the next section will make your style longer lasting,"
•MISTAKE #7 : You're Not Using a Nozzle
