12 Not-So-Obvious Hair Dryer Hacks To Get You A Perfect Blowout

December 3, 2014 by Andriena Baldwin

A few weeks back, we told you about blow dryer hacks that don’t involve drying your hair. As you were reading you probably thought, “Great, but what about my wild, frizzy hair?” Don’t worry, we got you girl. That’s why we’re focusing on actual hair hacks this time.

The struggles of washing, styling and blow drying are real. So here are some not-so-obvious tips to make the process easier. We all know to use heat protectant, but what else? Read on.

  1. Place your blow dryer in a shoe and angle it down for a “stationary” blow dry perfect for conditioners and hot oil treatments.

  2. Put antiperspirant on the back of your neck during blow drying on hot days to keep your neck from sweating and making your hair stick.

  3. You could use a million small sections, or save time and frustration by dividing your hair into 3 sections across the crown of your head and one in the back.

  4. Using a boar bristle brush while you dry will add shine and distribute your hair serums so you can use less product–and that’s always a plus!

  5. Make sure your dryer is always pointing down the hair shaft and it stays about 3 inches away from your hair.

  6. Start blow drying in the front of your head first, from root to tip.

  7. Make sure to let your hair either air dry or towel blot (paper towels or microfiber towels please ladies) first before you begin drying.

  8. For added straightening, use a little tension. Gently tug on your strands as you run the dryer from root to tip.

  9. Twist sections of your hair then blow dry it for soft waves.

  10. Or you can scrunch and diffuse to get a textured look.

  11. Set your style by using the cool shot button on your dryer for a couple of minutes.

  12. As much as you love your hair, don’t touch it after you’re done styling–the oils from your hands may cause your style to go flat.
