Definitely the best beauty trick you’ll learn this month
Clean and prep your hair
Up the it-looks-like-the-hairdresser-did-it-but-they-didn’t factor by double shampooing your hair before styling (the first wash targets the dirt in your hair and the second your scalp). Towel-dry and apply a heat protection product – particularly important if you’re blow-drying your hair like this on the regular.
Use a high heat
Grab your hairdryer and put it on the hottest setting. Warm air equals texture, body and bounce! Pop your hair in a topknot (make friends with a large clip), bringing down sections one at a time to wrap around a barrel-shaped brush. Hold the dryer about 5cm away from your hair and blast as you slowly comb through your entire head.
Seal it with a cool blast
Finish up by flicking your hairdryer to its ‘cool’ setting, flipping your hair upside down and blasting your hair from the roots to the ends. The cold air will seal your blow-dry and make it last forever (OK, so more like a day).
