DRYING BASICS: 1. Shampoo and condition hair with products of your choice. Rinse thoroughly. Towel-dry hair to remove excess moisture. Using the dryer along with your styling brush, start at a lower setting and direct hot air through a section of hair at a time. Move dryer steadily across each section so that the hot air passes through hair. Direct airflow at hair, not scalp. Clouds of negatively charged ions will help to reduce static electricity, control frizzy flyaways and contribute to your hair¿s shine. 2. Keep dryer's air intake vents unobstructed and free from hair while drying. 3. To avoid overdrying, do not concentrate heat on any one section for an extended length of time. Keep dryer moving as you style. For pinpoint airflow, use the snap-on concentrator attachment. 4. For quick touch-ups between shampoos, dampen hair with a mist of water before styling with the dryer. 5. When using your dryer to create curls and waves, dry hair almost completely on a warmer temperature setting, then finish styling with cold shot feature to quickly close hair shaft and lock in style. BODY & VOLUME: To create extra volume, turn head upside down while drying. Position the airflow toward the roots for maximum lift. When hair is dry, toss head back and brush hair into place. STRAIGHTENING: Work with hair in sections when creating a super-straight look. Using a large round brush (approximately 2'' in diameter), hold hair taut in each section and bend ends slightly under as you dry. MAKING WAVES: Tousled, natural-looking waves are easily created by grasping hair at the roots and scrunching between fingertips while drying.
