How to properly dry your hair so it doesn’t get frizzy?
Before you start blow-drying your hair, I recommend applying a leave-in conditioner or serum and always comb through your hair using a flat brush.
Divide your hair into sections, I recommend you always start with the bottom layers of your hair, and blow dry your hair in sections from the bottom up, until you reach the top layers of your head.
Start with a maximum temperature and always finish by setting the dryer on the lowest heat setting so that the last air your hair receives is cold.
