So, let's dive into this collated piece and learn how to blow dry hair in the monsoon without frizzing it out:

1. For Fine and Thin Hair:

Start by towel-drying your hair to remove excess moisture. Then, apply a volumizing mousse from root to tip, giving your locks the much-needed oomph. Use a round brush to lift the roots and blow-dry on low heat, moving from the roots to the ends. Remember to keep your dryer at least six inches away from your hair to avoid damage.

2. For Thick and Coarse Hair:

A head full of thick and voluminous hair is a blessing but it’s not easy to tame them either. Begin by blotting your hair with a microfiber towel to remove excess water. Apply a heat protectant to safeguard your strands, and then divide your hair into sections. Use a large, paddle brush to work through each section, following the dryer closely to ensure thorough drying. Opt for higher heat settings but never linger on one section for too long to prevent over-drying.

3. For Curly and Wavy Hair:

Start by applying a leave-in conditioner to preserve moisture. To avoid frizz, opt for a diffuser attachment on your hairdryer. Work in sections, cupping your curls gently with the diffuser and allowing them to dry naturally. For added definition, scrunch your hair with your hands while drying.


Here is a quick run-through of the entire article for you to gather the take-away quickly:

· Use a blow dryer on damp hair only, squeeze out the excess water before.

· Use a heat protectant spray to protect your hair from heat damage.

· Use a medium to high heat setting, depending on your hair type.

· Blow dry your hair in sections, starting at the roots and working your way down to the ends.

· Hold the blow dryer about 6 inches away from your hair to prevent damage.

· Don't over-blow dry your hair as it may result in over-drying.

· Finish with a cold shot to set your hair in place and lock in the style.
