Frizz-free hair When you're blow-drying strands

Unless you're Willow Smith, it's best to not whip your hair back and forth as you dry it. Instead, use your blow-dryer's concentration nozzle. "It makes the air come out in a flat plane instead of a circular flow," says Nathaniel Hawkins, a celebrity hairstylist and the creative director of Keratin Earth. Always aim the air downward so it smoothes the strand's cuticles. Pull hair taut with a round brush and dry it section by section. When your hair seems dry, its inner layers are probably only 80 percent there, and if you don't get it 100 percent dry, the moisture that's left will cause frizz. So spend an extra five minutes blow-drying hair. For supersleek results, wrap dry sections around big Velcro rollers while you do your makeup.
