What does a diffuser do on a hair dryer?
A diffuser attachment is designed to disperse the air flow of a blow dryer and spread it over a larger area. Diffusers are used principally with curly hair because the dispersed air doesn’t disturb the hair’s wave pattern or cause frizz when drying.
Can you use a diffuser on straight hair?
If you have straight hair, but you want it to look wavy, you can still use a hair dryer diffuser. Once your hair has dried up, apply hair mousse so you can easily make your straight hair wavy. Now, use the hair dryer diffuser to create waves. You can do this by using your fingers to massage from the roots to the ends.
Can you put a diffuser on any blow dryer?
Diffusers are most commonly used on curly hair. If you’re using a hair dryer with a diffuser, you’ll see the best results if you have naturally wavy or curly hair. However, it’s still possible to achieve a voluminous, wavy look if you have straight hair. Here are some tips on using a diffuser on every type of hair.
What is the best way to use a diffuser?
Put the diffuser on the end of the dryer and tilt it upward. Take a 2-inch section of hair and place it in the bowl. Twisting the hair first will give the waves more definition, especially if you have certain sections that always fall flat. Set the dryer on low or medium.
