Expert tips on prepping and setting a great blow dry
Mastering the art of blow-drying can sometimes feel like a pipedream. We head to the salon to get it done professionally, making sure we soak in every twist and turn our hairdresser makes with the brush and the dryer so that we can try and recreate the same voluminous and polished blow dry ourselves at home. But you and I both know that seldom happens.
So to help you improve your blow -drying skills, we thought we’d provide you with a bit of a cheat sheet.

What products should you use before you start the blow- drying process?
Damage control from the start is essential as you’re blasting hot air straight on to your hair. So, packing in as many heat protectant products before the blow dryer hits that scalp is key. Brad’s go-to products are the O&M Know Knott conditioning detangler for prepping the hair, followed by O&M’s Atonic thickening spritz for creating volume and texture. Finally, Brad loves the O&M Frizzy Logic (I have personally tried this product, which left a super smooth and silky finish on my hair after my blow- dry) that he suggests working into the ends of your hair to “protect against [the] heat of styling tools.”
