How to Blow Dry fringe/Bangs for curly/wavy hair
What I used to do was wet my hair and chop it straight across my forehead like a Barbie doll fringe.
Little did I know that , my hair was curly and it’s going to twist back.It did look fine.But as I said my hair was curly,so you know?
As I grew older , I learnt about blow dryer , straightener etc
I used to wonder how do these celebrities get such beautiful , glossy hair?As a kid,You can only imagine. Everything exists only in the fantasy world, as you didn’t have the money to initiate or do something and at times it would turn up to be irrational .You had to depend on your parents and throw tantrums to get things done.:P
As I grew up, I was allowed to handle money.So with money came the straightener ,blow dryer and the other hair products.
I learnt to dry my own fringe.I learn to straighten it.I used to cut it occasionally with kitchen scissors.
Mind it, kitchen scissors damage your hair,So ended up buying a haircutting scissor.
Recently my hair stylist didn’t do much for my hair.My fringe looked thick.I thinned it down and now it looks fine.
[if you have super curly afro hair i wouldn’t suggest you to get a fringe.It looks very funny on such girls.It looks as if your hair suffers from MULTIPLE PERSONALITY DISORDER :P.Your hair is supposed to be normal curly or wavy to get a fringe according to me so that it blends with your hair. ]
It should look more settled down like the picture above.
Let get back to work
Talking about making your fringe look presentable –for people with curly /wavy hair. The first thing which is extremely important is the cut.
Make sure you do not cut fringe too SHORT.
The longer the better for starters.I have a short fringe, but i am used to handling it haha.If so , even you can go ahead and get a short fringe.But shorter the fringe , the more trouble it i will give you.
First and foremost –
1.Use a good brush
I use a round brush.Why?Because round brush gives you that natural twist to the fringe. It doesn’t make it look super ultra fake or straight.Make sure you get a medium size round brush.
Paddle brushes can be used to give a sleeker ,straighter look.
2.A good blow dryer.
I used to use this super normal mini PANASONIC hairdryer.Around Rs.1000 i guess
Now i used the Philips Salondry PRO –Its around Rs 3000 [INR]
It also comes with this diffuser for curly/wavy hair, i don’t use it.I let my hair dry naturally.
So make sure your blow dryer also has this Narrow diffuser to dry your fringe.
3.Then you need a good leave in or a heat protectant .
I use none.Actually you should use it.i don’t use it because it makes my fringe oily no matter how much i use.
How to blow dry?
Heard about reverse psychology ?Whenever you tell a person to do something , he does the opposite thing.
So why not go the opposite way and make him do the thing?
Same goes with the fringe.To make the fringe work, dry it in the opposite direction.
- If you wear your fringe on the left side, dry it on the right side.
- Take the whole hair and comb your hair and dry it towards the right side.
- You will get a VOLUMINOUS fringe.You can do the same while straightening too.
- While straightening your fringe make sure you twist it a bit to the end, [inside] so that it doesn’t look super poker straight.
- DRY IT ONLY WHEN YOUR FRINGE IS 80% NATURALLY DRY.
Hope this helped you all ;)
