Are you using the right hair dryer?

For those who have frizzy hair (including me), trying to tame it especially in humid weather can be really frustrating.

You get your hair blow dried at the hair salon and it always comes out smooth and fantastic looking, but try to replicate that at home and it doesn’t somehow quite work.

I later found out that the hair dryer that you use is very important to achieve straight hair. To blow-dry your hair straight, especially those with frizzy hair, you need to use a hairdryer that is at least 1875 watts and above. Anything less than that and your hair will not give you that look. So those provided in hotels are a no-no!

The other feature to look out for in a hair dryer is its weight. Please try and test out the hair dryers to see if you will be comfortable holding it in one hand for 10 – 15 minutes. The last thing you want is your hand tiring out before you finish the job.

There are some good ones out there, mine is from Vidal Sassoon and works like a charm.

Don’t forget to use a heat protecting serum and a good brush too!
