Having great hair everyday is one of those goals that I have been aspiring to all my life. I have found that if I take the time to do my hair, it usually looks great for about 2 to 3 days. It lasts longest when I use the perfect amount of product for my hair and take the time to blow dry, flat iron, or curl it.
All this styling takes time. You can spend less time styling by using the Pro 3Q Blow Dryer. It actually reduces drying time by up to 70% with lower temperature and faster airflow to minimize heat damage. I picked up my Conair Pro 3Q at Walmart.
I spent a lot of time with the Conair Pro 3Q Blow Dryer and learned a ton about how to better blow dry my hair. I am not a professional by any means, but I feel like I am on my way. Here is my tutorial on how to get the flip under blow dry. I discovered this awesome technique while trying out the Conair Pro 3Q Blow Dryer for the first time.
After the shower, towel dry your hair and do your makeup to give it time to dry. Most people start blowdrying as soon as they get out of the shower. You should not start blowdrying a soaking-wet head. Either wait it out or do a pre-dry by flipping your head over to get rid of excess moisture.
Spray your hair with Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Primer with Heat Protection and Toni & Guy Prep Leave in Conditioner to the knotted area and the ends. Comb it all the way through and then brushed it with the Conair Ceramic Wooden Boar Cushion Brush. Use a large clip to section off your hair.
Put on the Concentrator attachment and set the dryer to medium flow and high heat, curling my hair around the round the brush pulling the hair taught so that the upper part is flat. Hit the upper part of the hair and the roots several times.
PRO TIP: The key to maintaining control is to always hold the brush in the hand you write with and the hair dryer in the other hand. It makes a huge difference!
Then start putting the concentrator attachment directly on the Conair Professional Round Brush to circulate the hot air. Then start slowly pulling the round brush downward. Do this at least twice to each section of hair. On the second or third time around, right before the hair is about to roll off the brush, switch the stream to cold with the quick blue switch. This is one of the best features of this dryer. The cold switch is super easy to switch on and off. Do this to your entire head.
My second everyday look is a quick top knot bun that is inspired the Kate Spade Fall 2014 runway. You can either do it with hair pins and a hair tie or just 1 hair tie. Here is a video tutorial on how to do it with just a hair tie. My bun was made with just a few hair pins.
A good blow dry will last you several days, but if you get bored of the style after a day or so, you can add in a few curls at the crown using the Conair Infiniti Pro Curl Secret Curling Iron. Check out the curls the Conair Curl Secret makes here. This is when I had long hair. The curl secret provides you with an innovative new way to create gorgeous shiny curls each and every time. This device uses tourmaline-ceramic technology to help reduce the amount of frizz in your hair, leaving you with smooth hair that is soft to the touch. This innovative tool is like nothing you have ever used before for your hair!
This is day 3 of my hair after doing my hair with the Conair 3Q. The look really held up to the elements. It is not as voluminous as it was initially, but I still love it.
