How to Diffuse Natural Hair Without Heat Damage



 By Bri of Brirosecurly.com

There are four major steps to diffuse natural hair flawlessly and efficiently every time. Let’s start with what a diffuser actually is. A diffuser is an attachment added to your blow dryer. Normally this attachment is circular or bowl shaped, with tips. With the diffuser being circular, the heat covers more head space, adds volume, and preserves curls that are normally achieved the second day. Like any tool that uses heat, there are steps so that damage does not occur.

Smoke Points- Why Oil Doesn't Work as a Heat Protectant #ScienceTho



Most curlies know about heat protectants that will lessen the damage from heat styling within reasons. Whether you blow-dry, flat iron, or use a curling iron, you need a heat protectant. I cannot remember being told this when I was relaxed, so I am sure I was frying my hair to death back then, but now everyone knows to use them. With the current increased interest in natural products, more women are looking for natural alternatives in their entire regimens.

A New Way to Blow Dry 4c Natural Hair!

#Genius 

Nappy Fu writes:

"Sometimes a Natural likes to rock straight styles, better yet, semi straight styles. However, if your natural hair is kinky and coily this can be a challenge. Have you ever done a blow-out in which your hair looks like you didn’t just spend two hours blow drying section by section? Yes honey, been there done that. This was my experience each year I did my 'End of the Year Blow Out'. To make matters worse my hair would feel brittle and dry! Horrible combination for my type 4c hair. Who has time for this? Not I, and I knew I had to do something about it. I had to figure out how to blow dry kinky hair while maintaining softness and movement in my hair."


Nappy Fu told me that she had relied on the Comb Method in the past, and that the high heat and excessive combing wasn't letting her be great.  After some rather intense Youtube research, she came across a new method which-

• leaves hair semi straight
• reduces damage to cuticle layer
• reduces moisture loss
• avoids tangled ends
• does not involve combing or brushing through each section while blow drying
• gives volume and no frizz (or minimal frizz)
• leaves hair feeling soft and moisturized
• will allow hair to easily revert back

Heat Protectants- Silicones Are Our Friends




In my Fry Eggs, Not Your Hair experiment I demonstrate the effects of heat transfer on an egg to emphasize the importance of incorporating a heat protection product into your thermal styling regimen. If this demonstration does not convince you that heat damage is real, I really do not know what will. Heat softens the keratin in hair to become more pliable; however, if you are not careful, too much heat penetrating the hair too fast will cause water to boil on the inside of the hair shaft, which will instantly weaken the hair. If you are going to use heat on your hair, there is no way that you can completely eliminate the damaging effects that it will have, but you can decrease the amount of damage by protecting yourself.
