Don't move or shake your blow dryer

Don't move or shake your blow dryer

Everyone does this, but it's bad! Moving or shaking your blow dryer from side to side or up and down doesn't really do anything for your hair. If you are worried about overheating, then the correct way to do it is to keep the muzzle at least 6 inches away and use a lower heat setting.
Don't blow dry on max settings

Don't over blow your hair

Too much flow of air or too high a heat setting may 'overblow' your style or take out natural curls or waves. If you are blow drying straight, using too much heat will dry out the individual strands and make them lose the silky finish that the pros get.

Don't blow dry every time


Almost all hair stylists agree that you should not blow dry your hair every time you wash it. In fact, some even say you should only blow dry your hair on special occasions. The idea is to let your hair rest and have some time off between blow drying sessions.

Don't blow from the front to the back

Start blow drying the back and your top first. That will make it easier to work with the wrinkles and creases that are more likely to form there, then work you way around to the front. Another tip is to dry from the tip of your hair and up towards the roots for more volume.

Don't nessecarily use a professional blow dryer - do use one that fits your needs

Many consumers think that they need the super strength professional style blow dryers. The reason why professionals need these powerful blow dryers is because they have so many clients every day. Instead go for a blow dryer that is comfortable to hold and has adjustable heat settings.
