Today we’re talking healthy hair and how you can properly use a blowdryer without damaging your mane!  I’m demonstrating with Conair’s Infiniti Pro 3Q Compact Electric Brushless Motor Styler (say that 3x fast).

Below are five tips for using a blow dryer – some we’re more aware of than others, but it’s always great to have a reminder, right?

Don’t Blow Dry Too Early!

I always try to let my hair air or towel dry at least halfway if not more before I turn on the blow dryer.  Once I’m ready to start with the blow dryer, this one dries your hair ultra-fast so you can be on your way to fabulous, healthy hair!

Spray Heat Protectant

I LOVE that there are so many great heat protectants out there. I have used this one for a while and I really like it.  So much so that when I ran out, I immediately bought it again without thinking twice.

Use the Dryer Attachments

This Conair blow dryer comes with two attachments for the nozzle.  One is a diffuser for you wavy and curly haired gals (lucky!!) and if you’re a straight hair lady like me, the narrow concentrator attachment is your new bff. It allows a more concentrated air flow that helps focus on specific areas to reduce frizz and fly aways. I try to blow dry strands downwards for that sleek, shiny hair we all love so much.

Use a Lower Heat Setting

The 3QMS in this Conair blow dryer provide up to 70% more air pressure with less heat, which allows it to dry hair fast with less damage – so you’re already a step in the right direction!  There are three heat settings and two speeds. Try the medium heat at first and then cool down with the cool setting. I rarely even use the hottest setting (unless I’m in a real hurry and Christian is pressuring me)!

Try a Brush

I always use a brush to assist in blow drying my hair, and I go back and forth between a paddle and round brush. It helps give you that “blowout” look (a great tutorial here). And how cool is this half round brush? I definitely need one of these!

  1. Great post! I love that there’s so many options for hair and how to keep hair healthy and safe. I always try to use a cold setting on my blowdryer, but if possible, I always let my hair air dry but long hair makes it hard sometimes lol!


    1. I totally agree. I also love the cold setting in the summer when it’s just too hot to even think about using a blow dryer!

  2. Hi Kathleen,

    I discovered your blog a few weeks ago, and i have been reading it daily, or whenever you post.

    Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful blog. It’s so informative. Also, you are so very beautiful. Keep up the great posts. They are adorable.

  3. Being from Mississippi and living in almost %100 humidity all the time I found it hard to not use my blow dryer all the time. I started noticing that if I let my at least my roots air dry it keeps it SO much healthier feeling the rest of the time! I love that I’m not the only one who try’s air dry most of the time! Also love the CHI serum ( my boyfriend has ringlet curls and I can get him to use it) With age I have learned to not put heat on it unless my boyfriend and I go out or have date night!
    Love your blog! Mississippi girls gotta represent!!

    1. Thank you so much for sharing this, Kayla! YES girl – get your (at least) partial air dry on before applying heat. I totally agree with you!
