Blow-dry your hair! Proper blow drying is something you have to learn.

How do you dry your hair like the professionals at La Maison? It’s a cinch if you have a good hair dryer and know the best technique. 

5 tips to blow dry your hair

The hair likes a gentle temperature, the necessary heat protection and the right comb direction. And with La Biosthétique products, drying and then styling is almost certainly a success.

1. Preparation after washing

Dry the still wet hair well with a towel. First, press the ends in a towel, then wrap the towel around the rest of the head and knead the hair gently. Do not rub the hair dry. While the hair is still damp, spray the nourishing leave-in conditioner Beauté Essence de Proteine ​. It gives a lot of care and better combability.

2. The right hair dryer

A high-quality hair dryer is not only better for the health of your hair, but also gives a much nicer result. The hair dryer should have different heat and blow speed settings, as well as a cool shot. Depending on the length, you can blow-dry the hair between three and five minutes to avoid unnecessary stress. If necessary, take a short break and then blow dry again. Always start with a low heat setting and then increase gently. The drier the hair, the better it can tolerate the heat. Finally, blow up the hair with the cool shot. This ensures that the hair cools down faster and prevents it from overheating and drying out. In addition, the haircut lasts longer and stubborn locks are easier to tame.

3. Blow dry the hair for curls and volume

Natural curls look best when gently untangled after shampooing and then air-dried or diffuser-dried.

If you create the curls by blow-drying with the round brush or using curling irons, spray Curl Protect & Style first. It protects against heat and makes the curls last longer. Then wrap strand by strand in the hair or work with a brush and blow dryer or curling irons in the right sizes. When blow-drying, make sure the curls are completely dry. Let the hair cool for a while and then style the individual strands.

For more volume, even for fine hair – before blow-drying, spray the Volumising Lotion with integrated care complex into towel-dried hair and work in lightly with your fingers. Preferably use a round brush and roll the individual strands around it while stretching them, then blow-dry from the bottom and at the roots. Start with the section at the back of the bottom of the head and work your way up. Let her cool. Then gently comb out or turn the head upside down and run your fingers through the hair.

4. Blow dry short hair

If you think that short hair is restrictive when it comes to blow drying, you are wrong. Because even styles with short hair are highly variable and individual. Whether rock, classic chic or romantic style, the right drying treatment makes all the difference. Keep in mind that short hair dries much faster than long hair. The blow-drying time is shorter, so you will quickly pass the critical phase where proper styling is possible. For a sassy look, apply Texturizer to the hair, blow-dry the hair in all directions and pluck it into shape with your fingers. For classic hairstyles, spray the setting lotion Pilviplax P before blow-drying. It offers creative applications and offers a flexible yet strong fixation. Then use a smaller brush such as the Styling Brush with wild boar and nylon bristles to blow-dry individual strands in the desired direction from root to tip. The blow dryer air should not be too strong, and ideally concentrate it with a nozzle.

5. When you need to blow dry your hair quickly

Most mornings there is little time in the bathroom, so you need to learn how to blow dry your hair quickly. After washing, press the hair into the towel several times and knead it gently. Then blow-dry the unkempt hair briefly on a low heat. Now apply Transformer styling cream into the hair and comb through gently but thoroughly. The cream gives the hair a very natural shape, whether it is curly or straight. In addition, it calms and softens the hair structure. Now blow-dry the hair from the roots and style with the brush or fingers at the same time. Finally, blow the hair short with a cool shot and divide the individual sections as desired. Finish by spraying with the Formule Laque Fine aerosol hairspray to give the hair volume and effective shine and to set the loosely blow-dried style.

Extra tip: plan enough time for a new haircut that you have not done before so that you can try it out in peace to style the hair perfectly. This prevents frustration and stress, and when you have a big event, the hairstyle is easy to create.
