Avoid hot styling tools as much as possible. If you must blow dry, always first coat and protect your hair with a leave-in conditioner like Phyto 7 or Phyto 9. Never focus the air flow on one section of the hair longer than a few seconds. Rotate the dryer back and forth to prevent burning hair.
When possible, use a blow dryer on medium speed, cool heat with the air flow directed from the roots to the ends. This is the least damaging way to use a dryer and still achieve good results.
If your blow dryer doesn’t have a cool setting but does have a cold shot button, use this at the end to seal and protect the hair.
When possible limit your use of the blow-dryer to just your bangs or limited sections of your hair. Look for ways to get maximum coverage with minimal heat exposure.
