|Home H Hair Care: Blow-Drying Tips|
Want that silky, touchable hair that Pantene Pro V products claim their shampoo will give you? Look no further. You can have that flawless look by spending only a few extra minutes blow-drying your hair! Ditch the designer hair products and follow these simple instructions to give your hair the same beautiful look and soft feeling:
* Brush / comb
* Claw-clip or barrette
* Your usual styling products or a small amount of hair gel for touch-ups. (These may not be necessary after you try this tip.)
Twist hair up into a towel in order to remove excess water. How long you keep it wrapped in the towel is up to you. My hair is long, so time permitting, I keep it like that for about 15 minutes.
Comb out any tangles and part hair as you wish.
Gather hair and twist except for a thin layer at the base of your head. Pin hair atop your head with the clip or barrette.
Begin drying the loose hair. (You can use a lower heat setting if you do not have a time restriction.) When hair is completely dry, turn off hairdryer and brush or comb hair.
Remove clip and take another section of hair to be dried. Re-twist your hair and replace pin.
Repeat step 4 as necessary. For thicker hair, you may need to separate hair into sections several times. My hair is of a medium thickness but long, so I separate it into 3 sections.
Once hair is completely dry, brush and style as you wish, or leave it down, as it should be less dried-out and more manageable. If your hair is not completely frizz-free and cooperative, rub a small amount of gel in your hands (a nickel's worth or a quarter's worth) and gently smooth over your hair, paying close attention to the ends.
Drying and styling time will vary based on your hair's thickness and length. Though I do not always have enough time to use this drying technique, it works wonders for my hair for those special occasions!
Approximate time required: 10-20 minutes, depending on thickness and length of hair.
