If you hair is frizzy it's because your hair is too dry or isn't getting enough product to re-condition it. Diffusing hair is a much slower process however totally worth the wait! Diffusing works best for curly hair as straight, damaged or fragile hair will need special steps to lock in more moisture. Read our Do's and Dont's below for help.
Top Tip: Hair can be any length to be diffused although the best length is shoulder length or shorter for creating bigger curl clumps or more defined waves. The longer the hair, the more weight will impact the formation of curls, kinks and waves.
DON’T- use a high heat if you want voluminous and defined curls, a slow process is needed! Diffusing curls on a high setting means that the air flow is not as controlled and air is blowing all over the place and in essence is blowing out the curls.
Don't: Brush your hair after washing or whenever it is wet, instead make your hands into a comb and
detangle to remove all snarls and tangle. Once hair is completely detangled then take all the tresses in your hands and then flip hair over the top of your head. Bend at the waist if you prefer.
DO – Flip your head forward so that you wet curls are hanging forward and diffuse upwards. Gently diffuse in an upward motion and then move to a different area and do the same thing. The diffuser will catch or encompass the grouped curls and heat them up without burning you while giving the hot air the ability to flow freely.
Top Tip: One fantastic thing that results from this technique is that you achieve much more volume in your curly hairstyle when you diffuse with your head flipped forward.
DO: Let your ends dry naturally (it'll keep curls softer). For girls with wavy hair who want more curl, take your ends and lay them into the diffuser, then lift the dryer up towards your scalp and hold.
DO: Direct the fingers of the diffuser through the strands lifting and using circular motion to make sure the air is moving through all of the hair.
DON'T: Wrap your head in a towel, and do not shake up your hair with the towel, as this will result in frizz.
