When you stop into the salon for a professional blow dry, your hair just seems to behave better. Women with thick hair get the polished look they crave, while ladies with flat strands get the volume they desire. Save time and money with these at-home blow dry tricks that won't have you blasting your hair with heat either.
Full-on volume: If you just can't contort your arms into the perfect position to get a great blow dry at home, you're better off trying hot rollers. Roll large sections using medium to jumbo rollers. As they cool down, you'll get the same root-lifting effect of a round-brush blow dry (without all the exercise). Opt for a flexible-hold hair spray and brush through with your fingers, so the curls fall out for a more natural bounce.
Sleek and smooth: Let your hair air dry until 90 percent of the moisture is gone, then blow-dry hair with a round brush until sleek. Use a flat iron to smooth roots, and spritz hair with dry shampoo like Batiste Dry Shampoo ($8.49) as a finishing touch for the ultimate volume.
