I take for granted that I use a really great blow dryer on my clients everyday. The hair dries quickly,smoothly and looks very shiny. People complain that it never looks the same when they dry it at home. That is because your blow dryer, blows. I know this because I used the blow dyer at the gym, standing outside in the wind would have dried my hair faster. It isn't all your blow dryers fault, but 40% of your issue is your blow dyer. The rest of the issue is not using enough product and the right product. The remainder is the technique you are using to dry the hair. Spend the money on the better blow dryer if you blow dry your hair all the time, or if you have difficult hair. A Chi or T3 is a good place to start. Read the reviews on Sephora and Amazon to see which ones people really like. If you are using a blow dryer or a flat iron, ALWAYS put a heat protectant in your hair first. Find a bottle that says for heat styling, this will save your hair from being damaged. Promise. This is not negotiable, do it.
