How To Get Better Looking Curls Using a Diffuser
When it comes to naturally curly hair, blow dryers can often cause grief rather than being of any help. In fact, some blow dryers actually work against curly hair; this happens when the nozzle directs too much air toward the hair, deflating volume and the shape.
What is the solution to this blow dryer and curly hair problem? It's simple... a deep bowl diffuser.
A diffuser provides a steady airflow which allows the hair to dry in a natural form. This will reduce frizz while maintaining the definition of your curls! Now that you know the secret, we have some tips to help you get better looking curls by using your diffuser.
Use Cold Air: Using cold air instead of the usual hot air will prevent the hair from stretching and creating frizz.
Keep Your Hands Out of The Hair: Let the diffuser do the work for you! The more you touch naturally curly hair, the more frizz you will create.
Get More Volume: Place the diffuser against your scalp and rotate (left, right, left, right) to encourage lift. Try this out and like magic, you have added lift and volume!
More Curl Definition: For even more definition in your curls, lift the diffuser against gravity to enhance the curls. In other words, turn your head upside down while and rest your hair in the diffuser :)
