How To Blow Dry Black Hair

Looking for tips on how to blow dry black hair?

The secret to getting a smooth, frizz free finish when you use one is keeping it moisturized and making sure it dries completely.

What You Need

  1. Shampoo, deep condition and use leave-in conditioner then apply a good heat protectant to create a barrier between your hair and the heat from the blow dryer.

  2. Use a wide tooth comb to gently comb your hair from the ends up to the roots.

  3. Part your hair into 4-6 sections (depending on your hair’s thickness) and clip them up and away.

  4. Using medium heat, hold the blow dryer 6-8 inches away from your hair and gently comb through with your fingers until it is about 80% dry.

  5. Apply a light coating of hair serum to the section. Use a large paddle brush to slowly brush the hair from underneath while pointing the concentrator nozzle downwards. Finish off the section of hair with a shoot of cool air to seal cuticle.

  6. Keep going through your hair section by section, moving from back to front till the entire head is done.

  7. Finish by spraying a little oil sheen lightly over the hair (if you are going to flat iron, do this step when you're finished).
