Blow-Dry Balms: Do They Actually Do Anything?

I’ve never quite been able to master the skill of blow-drying my hair, and I admire those who can. I think it’s something about the angle? Or maybe it’s the brush I  use? No, wait – I know! It’s because I’m not using a blow-drying styling product (or so I’ve heard).

Apparently blow-drying products can transform your blow-dry results from flat to fab, so I thought I’d go on a mission to find out.
