Step 1: Preparing Your Hair
Start by washing and conditioning your curly locks with products designed for curly hair. Towel-dry your hair with a microfiber cloth, this makes sure to not disrupt the natural curl pattern. Apply a leave-in conditioner or mousse to lock in moisture and enhance your curls’ definition.
Step 2: Attach the Diffuser
Attach the diffuser to your blow dryer. The diffuser is a bowl-shaped attachment with prongs that allow for even airflow distribution, promoting gentle drying and reducing frizz.
Step 3: Drying Your Curls
- Step 1: Set your blow dryer to the low or medium heat setting. High heat can cause frizz and disrupt your curl pattern.
- Step 2: With your head upside down, cup a section of hair in the diffuser, allowing your curls to rest on the prongs. Lift the hair towards your scalp, holding the diffuser in place for a few seconds. This enhances volume at the roots and encourages curl formation.
- Step 3: Gently release the section and move on to the next. Continue diffusing each section until your hair is about 80-90% dry. Remember, the diffuser’s goal is to gently dry your curls while maintaining their natural shape.
Step 4: Flip and Finish
- Step 1: Once your hair is mostly dry, flip your head back up.
- Step 2: With the dryer set to the cool setting, go over your curls one last time. The cool air helps set the curls and reduces frizz, leaving you with defined and bouncy curls.
Step 5: Define and Refine
If you desire more defined curls, you can use a small amount of styling cream. Scrunch your hair gently, starting from the ends and working your way up. This helps to refine and accentuate your natural curl pattern.
With the power of a diffuser attachment, you can unlock the full potential of your curly hair. Say goodbye to frizz and embrace the beauty of your natural curls. Remember, styling curly hair requires a gentle touch and patience, but the results are well worth the effort.
