Styling your Hair with a ghd Hair Dryer

There are so many possibilities to styling your hair with a ghd hair dryer, you can start with wet hair and be ready to leave the house without even touching a straightener or curling iron. Only using a blow dryer can help to reduce frizz and add volume and bounce to your locks. Everyone dreams of having professional salon blow drys at home but it is possible!

Fringe Styling

Starting with fringes, these can be easily dried whilst maintaining volume with a ghd hair dryer and a round barrel brush. Taking your ghd hair dryer with nozzle attached on a medium heat and medium power setting, place the round brush under the hair and direct the air stream downwards as you pull the brush, rotating it at the same time. This should only take a minute or so and if you keep turning the brush all the way to the end of the hair it will nicely curl the end inwards so the hair sits better on the face. This should negate any need to straighten the hair once dry as it ghd hair dryers aim to leave the hair silky and smooth.

Voluminous hair

Thick hair and volume go hand in hand, volume may even conceal hair that is not so thick but you desire it to be. With hair that isn’t dripping wet but about 70% dry, section it off and starting with the bottom section take a large barrel brush and a ghd hair dryer. Starting from the root hold the brush under the hair and use your hair dryer on a medium heat but high power, rotating the brush the whole time you have the air stream on your hair and keeping the tension tight throughout; slowly pull it down your hair. Keeping the brush rotating as you get to the end of your hair, this will create a bouncy curled effect; making your hair appear even fuller.

Naturally Curly Hair

If you struggle to get sleek and straight locks from your naturally curly or frizzy hair then fret no more. This can easily be achieved by using your favourite ghd hair dryer and a large round brush. Section your hair into two to four parts depending on how thick it is.Making sure to constantly roll the brush as you dry each section helps to create tension and pull the strands straight. Each part of your hair may take about 30-60 seconds so it may be time consuming however we definitely think the salon-straight look you’ll end up with will be worth it; even lastig for a few days.

For those with naturally curly hair that wish to maintain their curls instead of straightening them out then the perfect duo is a ghd hair dryer with the ghd diffuser attached! Optionally you can add some sea salt spray and scrunch it into your hair before using the diffuser to dry that section of hair. Place the hair on top of the diffuser and move it closer to your head, holding here or a few seconds to allow the hair to dry. Many like to turn off the dryer and allow the hair to cool for a few seconds still in the diffuser before taking it away; this ends the cuticles to close and sets the hair in place.

Quick Effortless Waves

For those with straight hair that they think is a little lifeless or lacking “oomph” this is a great option using a ghd hair dryer. Once the hair is about 70% dry, plait the hair, it is optional how many different braids to do; the more braids the tighter the waves will be. For those with thick hair two is optimum and for shorter hair styles it is even an option to loosely french plait the hair all the way from the top of the hair. Once you are happy with how the hair is braided take your ghd hair dryer and focus on the damp braids to dry them in the waved form. Most importantly once it is 100% dry let the hair cool all the way down before taking the braids out.

Create the effect of a Hooded Dryer

With just a set of velco rollers, a shower cap and a ghd hair dryer you can create the effect of a hooded dryer. With your hair about 80% dry put it all up into the rollers and poke holes in the shower cap to allow somewhere for the excess air to go and place it over your head. With the nozzle attached to your ghd hair dryer, put it under the edge of the shower cap and allow the air to circulate inside to dry your hair.

You can leave it for however long it is necessary to dry it however it is important that you either blast it with a cool short or leave the hair in the rollers momentarily in order to let the hair ool down and for the follicles to close back up. This will make the style last a lot longer and look smoother for days.

ghd Hair dryer technology

The range of ghd hair dryers have been made to have a number of new innovative technologies. Firstly Laminair technology has been designed to deliver a non turbulent and constant stream of air, helping to leave your hair smooth and frizz free thanks to the innovative and advanced ioniser. Cool wall technology is great for styling closer to the root as this prevents the outer casing and nozzle of the ghd hair dryer cool to touch.

They both contain the innovative technology that has been designed to keep your hair smooth, frizz free and nourished throughout the whole process.
