How To Blowdry Frizzy Hair
If you have naturally frizzy hair, you know how essential it is for your happiness to learn how to style it on a daily basis. Don't get us wrong - we're all for embracing your natural hair and loving your curls, and if you're also about that, be sure to check out our numerous hair tutorials on how to style naturally curly hair, wavy hair and frizzy hair. BUT... on days when you want to feel that silky smoothness of your hair, here are the tips you need to follow to get the perfect blowout.
Air dry first.
Start with your hair 90% air dried. There are 2 reasons for this: firstly, the blowout will just look that much better. And secondly, it's far less damaging to your hair - since you're applying heat from the blow dryer, the hair will need much less heat when it's partially dried as opposed to having it soaking wet. Basic TLC, my friends! Just don't blow dry your hair when it's still dripping wet - promise?
Section that hair.
Section your entire head in very small, manageable sections. Yes, this is time consuming. Yes, this seems like a lot of extra work. But do you want a kickass blowout, or not?! If yes, then please trust us when we say the results are so worth it when you blow dry one small and manageable section at a time. That way, the heat from the nozzle will be transferred evenly throughout, giving that silky smooth finish. Bonus: talk about a killer arm workout ;)
Get a blow dryer with a nozzle that looks like one below. It will concentrate the hot hair and give you the ultimate blowout.
The right brush.
Get a large round brush that is ceramic. The heat will transfer to it and act as a straightener at the same time. Leyla used a 3 and a half inch ceramic brush, and you can purchase one at any drug store, beauty supply store or a hair salon!
Work your way up.
Start from the bottom and work your way up - section by section. If you want a detailed step by step video on how to blow dry your hair straight, check out this video. Once you're done - enjoy your gorgeous, silky smooth blowout.
But that's not all...
How To Blend Hair Extensions With Layered Hair
If you want to glam it up a step further, clip in your Luxy Hair extensions to make your hair longer and fuller than ever before. Literally, this is the easiest way to 'grow' long hair fast without having to actually grow it, haha. Just check out the result yourself:

If you have layered hair, it may be a little difficult to blend in clip-in hair extensions when the hair is straight, because the extensions are all one length - 20 inches. So, there are two ways to do it:
a) Trim them by a professional hairstylist to blend with your own haircut and style
b) Wave the extensions with your own hair, which is how Leyla does it in the video. Make sure to watch her technique in the video above to see how nicely the hair extensions blend with her layered hair.
