Blow Dry Mistakes


Blowouts don’t have to be complicated. T3 Pro Kathleen Ty shares the top blow dry mistakes you might make and how to fix them.

Don’t

Never start a blowout when your hair is soaking wet. Applying heat to excessively wet hair can potentially cause the water to boil and result in unnecessary hair damage. Yikes!

Do

Instead, let your hair air dry first. Or finger-comb your hair while having your dryer on low-to-medium speed. Then, bring in the brush. 

 

Don’t

A smooth blowout starts with smooth hair cuticles. Blow drying upwards against your hair raises the cuticle layer and produces frizz. Lots of frizz. 

 

Don’t

Don’t try to speed up the process by drying large sections of hair at a time. Blowdrying bigger sections of hair actually takes longer, because the heat won’t be as evenly distributed. This also prevents the final result from being smooth and polished.

 

Do

Divide your hair into small sections. Not only will it dry faster, but styling will be easier, smoother and your hair won’t get caught around your brush. 

 

Don’t

Don’t skip the concentrator. The purpose of the concentrator is to direct the airflow to create a more precise and streamlined blow dry. Attempting a blowout without one can cause the hair to blow off the brush and create tangles. No thank you.

Follow these instructions. T3 Pros are always here to help. Promise.
