Best Hair Dryer For Frizzy Hair!!!
Unmanageable, frizzy hair is around the corner! The humid times are coming and so is frizz. If the hair is straight, the cuticle lies flat, but when the outer cuticle rises the hair becomes frizzy and looks like a shingled roof. I’m not saying this to scare you but to say you can tame your frizzes pretty effectively with the right choice of the best hair dryer for frizzy hair.
The type of hair dryers you use can make a big difference. Some dryers are manufactured specifically to minimize the frizz and help women enjoy smooth sleek hair every time they dry.
Blow-drying VS Air Drying
“Wait! Are you going to say that blow-drying the hair is better than leaving it to dry naturally?” “Yes, I am”. Blow-drying your hair rather than leaving it to dry naturally will prevent frizz. Air drying leaves your hair free to soak up the humidity and expand, while blow-drying closes and smoothes the cuticle. Heat protection spray is essential and doesn’t leave the hair damp. Finish by blasting your tresses with cold air to fully seal the cuticles.
“The best way to avoid frizz is to blow dry your hair from the top down,” says Chicago-based celebrity stylist George Gonzalez. Direct the dryer towards the ends. Always dry the roots about 70 percent first and then focus on the ends. Make sure you control the ends with your brush or try using your hands to press the dried hair smooth.”
HURRAH FOR THE IONIC AND INFRARED HAIR-DRYER
I’m not a fan of straightening irons, as I find results short-lived, leaving hair straw-like. But I am a fan of ionic hair-dryers, as they emit negative ions which help the cuticle lie flat, giving that glossy effect. They cause water in wet hair to break down faster, therefore creating less damage to the hair’s cuticles. Ionic technology neutralizes static and frizz. Negatively-charged ions prevent the evaporation of water molecules to keep hair well hydrated.
How do infrared hair dryers function? Instead of just heating the exterior of the capillary stem (thus overheating the cuticle scales and creating spilt ends, dryness and frizziness), heat gets to the heart of the hair. Hair then maintain its suppleness and its radiance.

How To Blow Dry FRIZZY/CURLY Hair With Carli Bybel !
Today I’m going to talk about one of my favorite topics: frizzy hair! I personally have struggled with my frizzy hair my whole life and I know how upsetting and daunting it could be. When I was younger, I didn’t know what was wrong with my hair and I didn’t know what to do about it. I had a lot of friends who had beautiful silky straight hair and I just thought something is terribly wrong with my hair. So through years of research and trying different products and different things with my hair I’ve learned how to deal with this crazy mane and how to tame my frizzes.
Before I start talking about how to tame frizzy hair, I want to explain what makes hair frizzy so that you understand and no longer feel guilty for having frizzy and curly hair. Hair is primarily made of lipids, which is oils and fat, water and protein. That’s why it is important to eat all of these nutrients to have healthy, shiny and good hair.
If your hair is naturally curly or wavy then it’s naturally dry. Naturally dry hair is prone to frizz. What do I mean by that? Let’s say you go outside and the air is humid. Your hair is dry or “thirsty” and the air has a lot of moisture in it, then your hair goes like “I wanna have a drink”. So it sucks the moisture from the air. And what happens to that hair you just blow-dried or straightened? It just goes back to being frizzy, poofy and natural. That’s what happens to the hair when we are in humid conditions and that’s what causes frizzy hair.
Many hair experts say that blow-drying and using hot tools really create a lot of frizz in the hair. According to my personal experience, my hair used to be just as frizzy when I was ten and I had virgin untouched hair, no blow-drying, no straightening and no curling. It was just as frizzy that I’ve been using a lot of hot tools and they didn’t really harm my hair. But one thing is sure, if you bleach your hair or go for chemical straightening, that would definitely create more frizz in your hair. Bleaching and chemical straightening absorb the moisture from the hair and consequently make it dry and frizzy.
I personally had a Brazilian Keratin Blowout that just came out maybe 3 and a half years ago and I was like “OMG, I finally tamed my frizzes”, but I would never recommend it because it totally dried up my hair. Yes, it made my hair straight and when I washed my hair it was kind of straight, it wasn’t wavy, but it wasn’t perfectly straight either. In the long run, it just dried up my hair more, and once the chemical treatment came out of my hair, it became frizzier and drier. That’s why I would not recommend it.
What to do and what not to do
If there’s one tip repeated by just about every expert, it’s this: avoid brushing hair after it dries. Brushing not only disrupts your hair’s cuticle, it can also stretch hair, leading to breakage. If you do that, you’re going to create a frizzy mess. What I usually do is when I come out of the shower, I towel dry my hair very gently, and then when my it is damp I just start to brush it slowly from the bottom and slowly moving up.
Then I’ll start blow-drying my hair with my hair dryer for frizzy hair and a round brush – that is really important – because it smooths the cuticles, takes all the frizz and makes the hair look smooth and shiny.
Another important thing I want to tell you is “Stop feeding your hair alcohol!” I mean it. If you look at most products, just pick up the bottle and look at the back for the word “alcohol”. Most products have alcohol because it’s really cheap for the manufacturers to put it. So try hard to find products that are alcohol-free.
After finishing blow-drying there are two favorite products that I can’t live without and that actually smooth my frizzy hair: I put a little bit of Argan Oil on my hands and rub them together, then I spread it onto my hair and I finish by running my hands through the back of it.
Now if at this point I still have some frizzes on top of my head, I take a little bit of hair wax and go closer to the mirror, and then I hold the hairs on top of my head and just smooth them out. What hair wax does is it weighs down the frizzy hair and you’ll have perfectly smooth hair on top of your head. This is my most favorite trick of all times!!!
When I go traveling, no matter what I do, if I blow-dry my hair, come out of the room, go to a restaurant or go out my hair just gets frizzy in an hour or two. That’s why I usually have Argan Oil and Hair Wax with me, and then even if it becomes wavy at least it looks nice. Now if you ever get stuck in hair emergency and you don’t have these two products under your sleeves, just go grab some water and wet your hands, then go through your hair with your wet hands. That’s going to smooth out the frizzes, at least for the time being.
So this is how I tamed my frizzy hair and I can officially say I’m happy with my hair now. Let me know how you do with your frizzy hair, I’d love to hear from you.
