But why even a diffuser?
A diffuser can bring many benefits to your curly hair. A standard blow dryer can cause frizz, but if you use a diffuser, you can prevent frizz. A diffuser spreads the airflow which is great for keeping the curl pattern. This spread won’t mess with your curl shapes. If you want to have a great curly hair diffusing, continue with the tips below.
The best setting for a good curly hair diffuse:
This is very important for your curl health. Using the wrong setting can damage your hair. It is recommended that you use low or medium mode for the heat and also air. Although using these settings can make the diffusing time longer, but it can prevent frizz, and it won’t also remove too much moisture from your hair.
Best way to use the diffuser for curly hair:
Start the diffusing process after you finished your wash process and adder your preferred styler. Next, you need to put your hair in the way you want to diffuse it. If you want to reduce the time diffusing take, let your hair dry with the air about 40-50%.
Rotate your hair to one side and use the diffuser for large sections. Remember to use low or medium heat and air settings. You should stay in this position for 10-20 seconds, after that you can diffuse the next section. You should repeat this cycle until 80% of your hair is dry. Then, you can let your curls dry with air.
Always use a heat protectant.
As you probably know by now, heat can damage your hair and curls. Although I mentioned that you should use low or medium heat, but this can also be damaging for many hairs. The best way is to always use a heat protectant. A heat protectant can protect your hair from heat tools; Therefore, you will have healthier hair with less frizz.
Do you want volume when diffusing?
You can add extra volume to your hair by using some styling products. This can also be done with specific tools and methods.
