April 2, 2008 by  

The most common hair dryer diffuser is also known as a finger diffuser.

This dryer attachment is one of the most popular attachments as its main purpose is to add volume and define curls without frizzing up hair. It allows your hair dryer to give a softer blast of air instead of blowing your hair all over the place like a hair dryer will do with out an attachment.

A diffuser is best used on a lower heat setting, and although it makes for a bit of a slower process the end results can be very rewarding. A more defined curl, less frizz and softer looking curls or waves. The fingers on the diffuser work to help separate the hairs from each other for a fuller more voluminous effect.

HOW TO USE A HAIR DRYER FINGER DIFFUSER

To add volume using a diffuser tilt your head upside down and place the diffuser at the roots of your hair and move the diffuser down to the ends of hair as hair dries.

To help shape and define curls start with the diffuser at the roots and with circular motions work your way down the hair. Be sure to move in the same direction down the hair. To add volume with this technique lift the roots by keeping the diffuser at a 90 degree angle from the scalp.

Always use your dryer on a medium heat setting and at a lever 1 air speed.
