Are you always in a hurry and can’t wait for your hair to dry naturally after shower? But are you worried that blow drying your hair can make it more prone to frizz, especially in the afternoon? You might want to use a diffuser. This handy attachment is your lifesaver if you want to instantly dry your hair using a blow dry minus the frizz that ruins your day come mid-day. With this attachment, you can dry hair gently and worry about frizz no more.
During the 80s or 90s, all blow dryers came with its own diffuser. But recently, these were sold as separate attachments, though. Hence, a lot of women tend to do without it only to realise later on that it is a big mistake.
A diffuser is very simple to use because you simply attach it to the end of the nozzle of your blow dryer. This attachment helps to disperse the air flow coming from the blow dryer and spreads it onto a larger area. Hence, it facilitates quick drying of your hair without applying a strong force to your hair strands. When using the diffuser attachment, however, you need to set the speed to low and at medium heat.
In order to enhance the results of using a diffuser, as well as to create a natural and soft look into your hair while still keeping its wave pattern, you must apply a curl enhancing product before blow drying. Start from the roots and dry it using a circular motion. Make sure the diffuser is within close proximity to the scalp. Maintain a 90-degree angle for maximum results. To allow your hair to set, make sure to blow a cool shot of air once the strands have completely dried up.
For those wishing to increase volume with the use of a nozzle, you can add volumising spray or mousse before starting to blow dry. Then, hang your head forward so that the strands will stay away from your scalp. Use the lowest speed setting on your blow dryer and direct the blow drying to the roots while working your way down towards the ends. When your hair is almost dry, throw it back again and use your fingers to style it and achieve the shape you want.
Women who are worried about adding more damage to their hair by introducing heat, the use of a nozzle takes on an even bigger purpose. In fact, you should not use your blow dryer without it.
