Blow Drying Support Thread

Listening to this video really helped to refresh my understanding of how to select heat protectant products for the blow-drying process. It didn't dawn on me why I have always disliked using blow dry creams and lotions on my hair. I recently bought several products from Ulta that I now know that I need to return.
Very informative. Thanks for posting this!

Omg! The RevAir is awesome. I used it on my mom last night. It made her hair straighter than using a comb attachment on the Dyson. It was far less work than using a brush. It also didn’t get super hot or take very long to do.

I used high heat. I tried level 5, 6 and 7. 7 made hair the straightest but it made her hair tangle/knot. With 6, there was a little tangling. On level 5, there was no tangling at all.

I had to literally count to 90 seconds on each section because I was initially underestimating the amount of time. When I didn’t do it long enough for like 35 seconds, the hair would get a little puffy after initially looking straight. The only con is that it is a little heavy to hold.

This time I used the following:
Biolage Reset Shampoo
Design Essentials L&A Shampoo
Design Essentials L&A Conditioner
Design Essentials L&A Blow Dry Spray
Keracare Silken Seal Liquid S
Design Essentials L&A Thermal Protectant Creme (For flat iron on 385)

Background info: My mom’s hair is mostly silky and fine. We have tried once months ago to wear her hair curly, but the relaxed ends are curly yet stringy. We haven’t cut them off yet. I’ll be doing the 1st 1inch trim next month. Her hair when wet is perfectly spiraled and looks like the size of dry 3c ish curls. So the pic shows her hair after being brushed and stuck in Bantu knots.
