How to Use Hair Dryer Diffuser?

The diffuser is very gentle on your hair. It distributes the heat without being aggressive, which is perfect for drying fine, colored, permed or naturally curly hair.

Dry your hair using a hair dryer with a diffuser:

  1. Dry your hair beginning at the roots and using circular motions, always moving in the same direction. Use the diffuser with the hair dryer set at speed 1 only.
  2. Continue drying, keeping the hair dryer at a 90-degree angle from scalp. This will lift the roots away from the scalp giving your hair volume.
  3. Finish by drying the ends.

To set your hair style and achieve a "long-lasting" effect, finish by blowing a "cool shot" through your hair.

Add volume to your hair using a hair dryer with a diffuser:

  1. To add volume to your hair, dry it upside down so that the roots fall away from your scalp. Use the diffuser with the hair dryer set at speed 1 only.
  2. Point the hair dryer at the roots to give your hair maximum volume.
  3. Continue the process to the ends of your hair.

When your hair is dry, throw your hair back and brush to shape. To set the style and achieve a "long-lasting" effect, finish by blowing a "cool shot" through your hair.

Can you use a Tourmaline Ceramic hair dryer and product daily? Only if you want to maintain looking glamorous! ;-)

For glamming up Pin-Straight Hair: In ALMOST DRY hair, add mousse* and/or a gel and distribute throughout.    Scrunch it up, then use the diffuser in a circular motion -- in one direction only. Finally give it a shot of cool air.    RESULT: A pretty wave with depth and volume in next to no time.    After sleeping on mine, it still had a slight wave and volume, just not as much as yesterday.
*"CHI Silk Infusion" is pricey; a dab the size of a pea produces magnificent, truly amazing results! A 5-star product.

The "COOL SHOT" is cold air that quickly shoots to close the hair folicles, reducing frizz and setting the hair style you've created. Read the product directions since some hair dryers have different methods of using the Cool Shot (i.e., Revlon Perfect Heat Tourmaline Ceramic 1" and 1-1/2" Hot Air Styler.)
