Hair Tool of the Week (HTOW)

Hello Blog lovers! I promised you guys that I would be making posts on Monday's at the beginning of the week for the HTOW! Last weeks HTOW of was the Blow Dryer Comb attachment. Which is great for straightening and detangling the hair. This week I wanted to share with you the Blow Dryer Diffuser attachment. Most retailers sell the blow dryer diffuser with your brand new blow dryer. If for some chance you aren't able to buy it this way you can purchase them at your BSS or Sally's.  The actual Diffuser(Pictured to your left) is the Big Circular Attachment with the "Combed Teeth".
The diffuser is great for blow drying curls and making sure that curly hair stays curly. I've used a blow dryer diffuser on my clients hair whenever I am doing molded hairstyles. It keeps the hair spritz from turning white on the hair and ensures that the hair won't loose it's shape while trying to "freeze" it into place.

Here are some tips on how to properly use the Blow Dryer Diffuser attachment for those who have naturally curly hair. I found this on E-How.

  1. Affix your diffuser onto your blow dryer. It should fit simply over the end of your blow dryer. Push it down into place until it is firmly attached to the dryer.

  2. Apply any styling product you wish to your wet hair. Gels and mousses work well to ensure your curls stay in place throughout the day.

  3. Turn your blow dryer onto its low setting. You can use a diffuser on a medium setting also; however, you may find you have the best results with the least amount of heat and force. Never put your blow dryer on high while the diffuser is attached. This can cause the diffuser to melt.

  4. Place the diffuser at the roots of your hair and move it in a circular motion. This will shape your curls from the roots and dry them in the process.

  5. Turn your head upside down for extra lift. With your hair hanging down towards the floor, move the diffuser across your roots in the same circular motion. When you flip your hair back over, you will notice substantially more volume.

  6. Put the diffuser at the ends of your hair and scoop your hair up into it as you move it up towards your roots. Whereas you might normally scrunch your hair up with your hands to encourage your curls, let the diffuser do it for you. Once you have scrunched a section of your hair, let it sit in the diffuser for about 15 seconds before moving on to the next section. Finish with a blast of cool air, provided your blow dryer offers a cool setting. This will help to set the curls and give your hair some extra shine.
