Long hair

FG_AUTHORS: Who Can Cut It?

Want to recreate that salon feeling every day? The base of any good hairstyle is a good blow dry.

If you have long hair, blow drying can be difficult. However, with a few tips and tricks, you can enjoy sleek, smooth and salon-fresh hair every day. Tangle Teezer shows us how:

After you’ve washed and conditioned your hair, sit back and relax. Drying your hair straight after your shower or bath is a big no-no, as soaking wet hair takes longer to dry and means your locks will be exposed to heat for longer. Instead, let your hair dry off naturally before you start styling. You can wick away excess moisture by gently patting your hair with a towel.

Don’t scrub — this could damage the strands, causing split ends and breakages. Squeeze the hair with the towel instead.

To keep your hair looking sleek and hydrated, apply a small amount of hair product. Serum or heat protectant spray is a great choice, but make sure you only apply it to the ends of your hair. If you do apply it to your roots, it could make your hair look greasy and oily.

If you have long or thick hair, it’s often wise to separate your hair into sections to make blow drying more manageable. The thinner the section, the quicker it will take to dry. Because of the length of your hair, it may be worth using clips to keep the hair in place.

Once you’ve separated your hair, you’re ready to start blow drying. You’ll need to check the settings on your hairdryer to make sure they match your hair type. If you have thin hair, choose a low air flow setting to minimise tangles. Likewise, if your hair is damaged, don’t use the highest heat setting — instead, test the temperature on the back of your hand to check it’s at a comfortable level.

Using a Tangle Teezer blow-styling brush, blow dry from the roots down. Never blow dry upwards, as this can damage the strands. Use slow, smooth movements and let the hairdryer follow the brush. Don’t let the hair dryer touch your hair though, as this creates a greater chance of heat damage. As a general rule, keep the hairdryer around 8 inches away from your hair.

Repeat this process until all of your hair is dry, working your way through each section. Once done, you can style the hair further or finish the blow dry with a spritz of hairspray.
