How To: Blow-dry curly hair

Blow-dry curly hair

Transform that tumbleweed 'do into bouncy, beautiful Botticelli curls. In this video, learn how to blow dry your curly curls to create sexy, bouncy curls.

You Will Need:
• A towel
• Protective heat serum
• A wide-tooth comb
• Styling gel
• Styling cream
• And a blow-dryer with a diffuser


Step 1: Blot hair dry
Gently blot your hair dry on a towel. Never rub it back and forth—this will destroy the curl and set you on the path to frizz.


Step 2: Apply serum
Apply a little heat-protective serum to your hair, concentrating on the ends.


Step 3: Apply styling gel
Apply a bit of styling gel to the roots of your hair and work a little styling cream from the middle of the strands to the ends with a wide-tooth comb.


Step 4: Create locks
Taking a few locks of hair at once, twist small sections from the root to the end, creating a series of smooth, twirled locks. Let them fall naturally.


Step 5: Attach diffuser
Attach the diffuser to your blow-dryer and turn it on at a medium heat and a low speed.


Step 6: Dry in sections
Tilt your head and gently lift a section of hair against the diffuser. When it is nearly dry, move on to another section.


Step 7: Dry hair upside down
If you want a little extra volume, bend over and dry your hair upside down for a moment, gently massaging your scalp in small circles.


Step 8: Check out those curls
Stand up, flip your hair back, and check out your tousled tresses. You can look, but don't touch!

Trivia: Your hair grows faster in warm weather.
