Why use a diffuser for your curls? 

A diffuser is often seen as a hair dryer. But, actually, the diffuser is an attachment that you can click on a hair dryer. You often receive most hair dryers with different attachments, including the diffuser. You can recognize the diffuser by its round shape and the protruding pins. 

You apply the diffuser to your hair while blow-drying. Your hair will not be blown apart, the pins will keep your curls in place and your definition will therefore be preserved. 

Thanks to the handy pins of a diffuser, you can also lift your hair up a bit for a little more volume. Try this by placing the hair dryer on your scalp and lifting the hair dryer up. 

What are the benefits of blow drying with a diffuser?

Here are the benefits of blow drying your curls with a diffuser: 

  1. Faster drying time
  2. Your curl definition is preserved 
  3. You can create more volume

Does your hair feel harder after drying? No problem! Because this hard layer is also called a cast. You can squeeze this hard layer out with a little hair oil

Is it safe to use a diffuser?

A diffuser is often large and round makes it extra suitable for curly hair. The large head distributes the warm air over your hair, unlike a normal attachment that often blows the heat out through 1 outlet. Thanks to the even distribution, you can safely blow dry your curls on a warm setting. 

Can you blow dry short curly hair?

You can also blow-dry short curly hair! It doesn't matter how long or short your hair is, everyone benefits from blow drying with a diffuser. The advantage of shorter hair is that you often need a hairdryer with a somewhat lower number of wattage. In other words, wattage says how quickly your hair dries. Do you have a hair dryer with a high wattage? Then your hair will be dry sooner than when the wattage is lower. 

Tip: with short curly hair you can safely use a hairdryer that has a wattage of around 700.
