Curl Definition Is The Ultimate GoalWhen we decide to become natural, the main thing we care about is our curl pattern and definition of those said curls. After using so many chemicals in our hair before becoming natural, our hair has lost its curls, or we never knew it had curls. For the first few months of being natural, there are so many products to choose from to see which works best for your hair. We try so many products to achieve the perfect curl definition and overlook a critical tool that’s sole purpose is to define our curls; the hair diffuser.
What Is A DiffuserA hair diffuser is an attachment that goes on your any blow dryer. It is designed to release the air from the blow dryer over a large area of hair. Diffusers are the middleman between your hair and the blow dryer. We all know that direct heat can be damaging to our hair and our curls; so using a diffuser while natural is the best option for drying. There are several types of hair diffusers that one can use on their curls; flat vented, mitt and even finger diffusers. All of which lifts the hair which helps add body and volume while defining your curls, all at the same time. Do not mistake diffusers as curl creators, they cannot create the curls you have always wanted, but they help to define them. Because a diffuser acts as a buffer between the heat from the blow dryer and your hair, it will help to bring out your curls, even more, using less or low temperature.
Why Should You DiffuseAlthough it seems like such a small appliance, diffusers make a world of difference. Not only is this better than using a hairdryer when you have curls but it helps to retain your original volume amongst other significant benefits. Use a diffuser because:
- When used correctly, prevents frizzy hair
- It is not damaging to your natural curl pattern
- A quicker way to dry your hair
- Less heat but better drying
- Retains length and fullness; no shrinkage
