A diffuser is an attachment designed to disperse the air flow of a blow dryer and spread it over a larger area. Diffusers are primarily used with curly hair because the air disperses without disturbing the wave pattern or cause frizz when drying. It is recommended that a diffuser be used on low setting.
Reasons to use:
· Stretch the hair
· Dries hair with minimal heat exposure
· Creates volume
· Keeps curls intact
I have not used a diffuser in years – partly because I’m lazy and partly because I wasn’t really sure why I used it to begin with. LOL! I still have it so perhaps I will revisit at some point. Does anyone else diffuse? If so, is there a noticeable difference? Would love to see some before and after pics! Please send!
There are a million + 1 You Tube videos on the topic! If you would like to see how one of my fave You Tubers, Taren916, uses a diffuser, click here: http://youtu.be/RcbURgM6ukw. It’s one of her older videos; however, the information is not! She gives a very detailed “how to” demonstration.
