You might be wondering what the point of a hair diffuser is.
However, when used correctly, hair diffusers can help define curly hair whilst keeping it frizz-free. Plus, a hairdryer diffuser can even give body and volume to both flat and wavy hair. So, there's something in it for everyone.
Although using a hair diffuser is time-consuming, it’s a great option to have. For some people, a diffuser is also completely essential for the perfect blow-dry.
What does a diffuser do, and how does it work?
Diffusers are round plastic attachments that snap or clip onto the nozzle of your hairdryer, much like concentrators. These accessories are sometimes included with hairdryers but are also sold separately.
A good hairdryer diffuser works by spreading the airstream over a wider area in a controlled way. You use them by placing a section of hair onto the diffuser and pressing it up against your scalp as you blow dry.
A hair diffuser mainly benefits curly hair by keeping the curls' natural shape. A traditional nozzle can easily blow curls out of shape, causing them to frizz.
How to use a diffuser
Diffusers must be used with a low heat and low speed setting. Otherwise, hair can become tangled quite easily. Although the drying process is slower, this is one of the best ways to prevent frizzy hair.
Applying product beforehand defines the curl or wave even more. Try theMOROCCANOIL Curl Control Mousse, which is lightweight but still adds definition.
