How to Blow-Dry Straight Hair Without It Falling Flat

If you find it difficult to blow dry straight hair without it falling completely flat, these tips will help you the next time you style your hair.

1. Round Brushes

First and foremost, to blow-dry straight hair, you’ll need a round brush—preferably an extra-large one that’s at least two inches thick. Why? The bigger the brush, the more volume you’ll get.

2. Volumizing Hair Spray

Next, prep is as simple as applying a sweeping spritz of your favorite volumizing hair spray on the roots of your hair and then a light dusting to the mid-shaft and ends.

3. Hair Oil

Seal some last-minute moisture on the dry ends with your favorite split-end mender or hair oil.

4. Dry Upside Down

While drying upside down, rough dry your hair with your fingers—forget the brush! Then, once your hair is 90% dry, flip it back up and part it all the way back creating two sections, one on each side of your head.

5. Smooth The Ends

To finish, take your 2-inch round brush and smooth your ends back with your blow-dryer.

To complete the blowout, and supplement straight hair with a bit of body and bend, some strategic curling is key.

6. Add Some Curl

For the finishing touch, add some curl. However, make sure the hair is completely dry before you lift your curling iron. Nine times out of 10, it isn’t dry even when you think it is. Use a one-inch curling iron for styling, and prep the hair with a dry texturizing spray.

7. Section Your Hair

Next, section the hair off, usually three sections in the back and two on each side. Then start curling each section, alternating away from the face then toward the face. Start the curls mid-strand to the bottom to ensure the hair retains a lot of movement.

Hold the curl three seconds longer than you think you should to ensure they stay intact.

8. Brush Curls Out

Last but not least, gently brush out your curls before setting your blowout with a medium-hold hair spray. Don’t be afraid to be liberal with your application.
