Use a concentrator nozzle and a paddle brush to get your hair sleek and smooth.
Work from back to front. Drying hair in sections ensures that it's dried properly, is easier and guarantees zero frizzes.
Never ever blow dry hair your hair when it's dirty. That's the fastest way to damage your hair.
Never blow dry your hair with a brush attachment. They have hard plastic bristles that chew your hair up big time.
Never use the highest heat setting. That singes your hair, dries it out and leaves it prone to breakage. Low to medium heat is much healthier.
