The blow dry mistakes you may be making (and how to fix them)


The main reason why I took the blog in this direction back in 2011 was because I learned very quickly that I could help more people than just my clients with basic video hair tutorials. With the explosion of Pinterest, and the right timing, my video tutorials gained popularity really fast and I was given the opportunity to create helpful resources for women all over the world.

Coolest. Opportunity. In. The. World. By the way.

In the years since the hair tutorial heyday, my content has evolved and changed, but my love for teaching/helping hasn’t gone away! And a recent revelation while getting ready at my gym inspired me to create a new tutorial to correct some common hair issues that I keep seeing.

Since becoming pregnant, I stopped doing bootcamp and joined a more traditional gym with showers so I could get ready immediately after working out. After a few weeks, I couldn’t help but notice that the blow dry methods of the women around me were wasting time, were ineffective, and were not giving them the results I’m sure they were hoping for.

I desperately wanted to lean over and just offer advice right then and there, but I held my tongue and took mental notes instead. So this video is rounding up all the things I’ve seen women do to their hair with a blow dryer that may not be ideal.

The video is not going to demonstrate how to do a salon quality blow out with a round brush, but instead I’m going to share a few minor changes and tips to simply blowing your hair out with a vented flat brush. I didn’t want the styling technique to take away from the drying, so I’ve kept it very very simple!

I styled my hair with Oribe Foundation Mist, Shu Uemura Ultimate Remedy Extreme Restoration Duo Serum, and Aquage Uplifting Foam. After blowing dry, I smoothed through the ends with the GHD classic flat iron and finished with a bit of Oribe Dry Texture Spray and Kenra Volume 25 hairspray.

p.s. the prettiest blush watch for spring, and an equally pretty blush handbag!

    I hardly ever blow dry my hair (air dry all the way!) so I’m a bit of a newbie when it comes to times that I do need that hairdryer. These are really helpful tips. Thank you! 🙂

    I have naturally curly/wavy hair and don’t want smooth straight hair after I blow dry. What different tips and tricks would you suggest.

    • Kacie says
      Posted January 16, 2018

      Check out for product and method tips for wavy/curly hair. Not all curly girls use a blow dryer but my curls are better when I use one and I only dry with the diffusor attached.

    Thank you for the video! I definitely have been making some blow dry mistakes. I have naturally curly hair, but I blow out my hair once in a while. Would love to see a round brush video!

    Posted January 15, 2018

    Great tips! I see you didn’t section it off, would you suggest that for thicker hair or is it an unnecessary step?

    • Ashley says
      Posted January 15, 2018

      I was wondering the same thing. I usually section off my Hair to make sure each section is perfectly dry & the under parts don’t have a weird kink to them.

      • Julie says
        Posted January 15, 2018

        Same question as above. I have super thick wavy hair so I normally have three sections when drying.

  5. Victoria says
    Posted January 15, 2018

    Haha! Some of your comments about applying product made me laugh out loud. Thanks for the helpful video!

    Posted January 15, 2018

    I have extremely thick hair with only low and high on my dryer. And its baby bliss, not a cheap dryer. Do you recommend using the low setting? That might take all day I fear.

    • Koren Whited says
      Posted January 16, 2018

      My old dryer was the same way. I would use a little extra heat protectant, and then use high at my roots to around mid-shaft, and then I’d switch to low to dry the ends. Maybe that would work for you to have shorter dry time, without doing a lot of damage.

    Very helpful tutorial! I noticed you did not use the attachment nozzle. When/how would that be used?

    • Brittany says
      Posted January 15, 2018

      Yes! The nozzle question! I’m always overwhelmed by all the attachments that come with the blow dryer and never know which ones to use or when! Thanks for a great video

  10. Lee Ann says
    Posted January 15, 2018

    Thanks for making the video! I’ve been doing pretty much everything you’ve done, but I wanted to say that I’m jealous of your hair! 🙂 I have a very strong collick in the front of my hair and my part only goes one way. I wish I could toss it to either side like yours. I also have a bunch of collicks throughout my hair (it has waves and flips), and any stylist who has cut my hair through the years comments on it and how they have never seen hair like mine, and they really don’t know how to work with it. It’s also thick, flat, and coarse and is frustrating for me to work with. Thanks again! PS Congratulations on baby #3! 🙂

    • Brandi says
      Posted January 22, 2018

      I feel ya with the cowlicks. I have one right up front that makes bangs out of the question. It is sort of easy as a natural part, but it doesn’t take much to make it “swoosh” in a way I don’t want. 🙄

  20. Christy says
    Posted January 15, 2018

    I’ve been wanting to try Aquage Uplifting Foam – can you apply it in the morning on air-dried hair or hair that was blow dried the night before, or is it best applied to damp hair before blow drying?

    • Posted January 23, 2018

      I would also love to know the answer to this/these question(s) as well. Additionally, can you tell me what brush you were using?

        Posted January 15, 2018

        This is def not a professional method, but I smooth a dryer sheet over my hair if it’s super frizzy or if I’ve been wearing a hat! Works wonders 🙂

        • Brittany says
          Posted January 15, 2018

          I do the same thing! It works really well. 🙂

            Posted January 16, 2018

            I don’t know if this is a good thing but I spritz a little Downey Wrinkle release with the static guard stuff in it. Works well. I use the sample size from the Walmart travel bin. Lol.

    Hi Kate,

    Thank you so much for posting this! I’ve been struggling on how to blow dry my hair properly. I just tried your tips and hallelujah! My hair is full of volume and helped cut down my straightening time. I still need to master the bangs trick, but they are uncooperative since I’m growing them out. I’ll keep at it! Thanks again!


  28. Katy says
    Posted January 15, 2018

    What would you recommend for the small pieces of new hair growth? It doesn’t seem to matter what I do… along my part I get small pieces of hair sticking up all over. HELP!!!

    • Jessica says
      Posted January 22, 2018

      I have the exact same issue!

  29. Jerica says
    Posted January 15, 2018

    These were some awesome tips!! I’ve been thinking about investing in a new hair dryer because I already utilize most of these habits and still feel like I get a big frizzy fluff ball. Is it really worth it to invest in a high end blow dryer?

  30. Nadine says
    Posted January 15, 2018

    My hair is so thick that if I waited for it to be 60% dry before using the blow dryer, I would be waiting for hours. What do you suggest?

  31. April says
    Posted January 15, 2018

    Thank you, Kate, for a great tutorial. I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your advice for those of us with wavy/curly (and frizz-prone) hair! I want to embrace my natural texture, not fight with it. Products, tutorials, best cuts/styles – it would all be much appreciated! Thanks!

  32. Mariel Williams says
    Posted January 15, 2018

    How many days do you get from a blow dry? When using product, does it make your hair oily more quickly?

    • Kate says
      Posted January 15, 2018

      Usually 2. Sometimes product can lead to hair getting more oily, but not necessarily!

      • Mariel says

  34. Posted January 15, 2018

    Thank you so much for sharing this! I actually love just having helpful hints (like the post you shared earlier about how to keep your hair healthier in the shower). They’re so PRACTICAL….and I love that!

  35. Cassandra Wood says
    Posted January 15, 2018

    What are your thoughts on doing this blow dry technique at night and then sleeping on it? I always wash my hair and blow dry at night then just curl in the morning!

  36. Kelly says
    Posted January 15, 2018

    My stylist told me using a brush to blow dry will make it harder for the hair to hold curl. Since you blew it straight. Is that true? Thanks Kate!

  37. Victoria says
    Posted January 15, 2018

    I am very inexperienced when it comes to styling hair. I recently purchased a curling iron to attempt the beach waves tutorial you shared. Ever since I tried to style my hair I seem to have a permanent wave in the front close to the root. It stays despite washing and styling it. Any ideas what this is or how to correct it?!

  38. Tamara says
    Posted January 15, 2018

    Is there anything you would change or recommend for thick hair? My hair is pretty thick and takes a LONG time to dry.

  39. Crystal says

    Posted January 15, 2018

    Where has this tutorial been all this time?!?! So very helpful!!! I love your hair tutorials! (And kinda miss the old days when you first started doing them!). Quick question about the aquage foam… I often wash and dry my hair at night then style the next morning if I have a really early schedule. Could the foam be used the night before or would it make my hair greasy after I sleep on it?

    • Jessica says
      Posted January 16, 2018

      I find that my oily hair looks less greasy when I use the aquage at night and dry my hair, than when I don’t use any product at all.

  42. Liz says

  43. Cortni says
    Posted January 15, 2018

    I have incredibly thick hair, so normally once I get the the “blow drying with a brush” stage I pull 2/3 of it on top of my head and dry/straighten the underneath. It seems like if I don’t do this, I never really get the very underneath of my hair dry. Is this a mistake?

  44. Alison says
    Posted January 15, 2018

    I really enjoyed the video. Finally going to order the Aquage Root Lift! I’m doing pretty good with drying, until I have to hold both a brush & the hair dryer. Ordering a new brush, too. Your videos make doing hair fun & I don’t dread styling, as much, any more. You are my HG hair YouTuber.

  45. Allie says
    Posted January 16, 2018

    These are great! I especially loved the face softening trick at the end, I’ll have to do that the next time I dry my hair! Thank you! xAllie

  47. Bethany says
    Posted January 16, 2018

    WOW! What a difference these tips made. Kate thanks so much for these tips. I did my hair this morning and was pleasantly surprised on how smooth it turned out. Thanks for helping a girl out!!

  48. Lisa says
    Posted January 16, 2018

    I discovered I wasn’t making any drastic mistakes! 🙂 But I did try your tip to dry my hair parted on the opposite side of how I wear it, and to blow dry my “bangs” straight down to get a nice swoop… two super easy things to do that don’t any time to my routine, but made a significant difference in my finished style! Thanks!

  50. Sara says
    Posted January 16, 2018

    I decided to try the medium heat setting, I’ve always done the highest heat setting when drying. I couldn’t believe the results! It didn’t take that much extra time and I had less frizz and my hair actually felt softer and smoother. No more high heat setting for me. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge!!

        Posted January 29, 2018

        Kate, I purchased some Aquage foam recently and it appears they have changed their formula. It smells quite different. Have you bought any recently/had any issues?

        • Kate says
          Posted January 30, 2018

          I have not experienced that!

  55. Posted January 17, 2018

    Kate, wanted to let you know I dried my hair this morning following all of the tips in your video. My hair is quite wavy so I normally pin it up and dry it in sections, laboriously going over each section with a round and/or paddle brush. Today I did exactly what you suggested. I also did flip my hair over to dry the roots for a minute. The whole process took about half the time it normally takes to blow dry, and although my hair was a bit bushy when it was dry, a few passes with a flat iron easily took care of that. I think you’re right, the most important thing is to really work in those styling products. Anyway, thank you for showing me a much easier, faster way to dry my hair!!

  56. Rachel says
    Posted January 17, 2018

    Love , Love, Love this video! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate these “things I should have learned in middle school” topics! I grew up a tomboy with a tomboy Mother (who is an amazing person), but I never had an interest or a resource to teach me the basics then.

    Now at 28, this content is priceless!

    Hi Kate! I’ve been following your blog for years and Love it! My question may be dumb but when would you recommend using a concentrator attachment (I think thats what it’s called) and what is it’s purpose really? I’ve never used one, but have thought about trying it out. Thank you!

    Posted January 18, 2018

    Thank you, thank you, thank you for this video! I am lazy when it comes to my hair, and also not very talented at styling. I would either just blow the dryer around a bit, and let my hair dry, or else try a blow-out with a round brush. Either way I always faded when it came to the back, and did nothing with it! But now I have turned the heat down, let it dry mostly before even putting the dryer to it, and am very careful to keep the dryer pointed towards the floor! I have noticed such a difference! I am also trying to get out of the habit of always tucking the hair behind my ears – which always left a weird dent in the hair. I’m not a huge fan of hair in my face, but I’m trying!

  60. Jennifer says
    Posted January 18, 2018

    Great tips – but it would be helpful to see one for curly haired girls too! Some parts of the video I literally cringed (like full on face contortion) bc there was no way I could blow dry my hair that way and still get a brush through it afterward!!! Love you though and thanks for the tips!

I really like your tip at the end about blow drying your bangs in front of your face. I love how your hair sweeps over your forehead like that and now hopefully I can do it too. I’m really glad that I found your blog and I will definitely be coming back for more tips and to learn different ways to braid or pull my hair up. I also wanted to say that I love the design of your blog. You have used really soothing colors and the simplicity is really effective.

    great tips, but I noticed a big mistake– Always… ALWAYS use a nozzle! So many people fry their hair because they let those hot coils touch the hair… in the video I see your doing a pretty good job at keeping the heating coils at a distance, but most women wont.

    This is so helpful! One question-I’ve always applied a detangler/heat protector (like It’s a 10 or Beauty Protector), then used a pick to comb through my hair before blow drying. Do you just towel dry your hair, then start blow drying? I’m wondering if the pick is causing my hair to break more.

  87. Posted June 6, 2018

    Well written!!! I like the way you’ve explained some common blow dry mistakes we all may do and how to fix them in your post. In an effort to drying our hair faster, we could be totally frying our strands without. There are lots of products available in the market and various salons, who are offer hair wash and blow dry services. Thanks for sharing this information with us. Keep updated!

    You are so damn cute! Congrats on the beautiful baby!

    Does this process work with fine hair, too? Too much product scares me. I have a little kink and frizz to my hair but my hairdresser says i have a lot just super fine like a cotton ball 🙂

    p.s. I shared your website with all my Besties! Keep sharing 🙂

    It may seem like an easy task: grab a blow-dryer, point, and blast with heat. But there is a mastery behind it.

    what brand and color eyebrow pencil are you using in this video – looks great on you – I love it! (and love the video..have watched it several times – so incredibly helpful!)

  92. Posted July 29, 2018

    Thank you for your tips. I normally air dry my hair but when I do use a dryer I am using it on full heat. I have thick hair so I am generally bored with it before it is dry. Will try your techniques.

    I have a question about products. I blowdry my hair with the technique you decribe above and it looks great….for an hour or so.

    At that point, it seems to get…bigger? Or somehow lose it’s smoothness. If it’s humid, I can have trouble fitting through doors it starts to get so big. It will continue to get bigger until Day 3 post shampoo and then it finally settles to smooth again.

    I know I have super dry hair always slather on the moisturizing masks and conditioners.

    I style with things like Kenra Platinium daily defense oil, Oribe Royal Blowout Spray, Bumble and Bumble Straight, Living Proof Perfect Hair Day 5 in 1. Generally products that have some slip, heat protection and promote smoothing. Is finishing with hairspray the step I’m missing?

    I am very anti feeling like there’s anything in my hair, but I cannot stand looking like a pouffy mess.

    Thank you for that demo. I wonder if you would think of doing a demo on short hair that’s neither curly or wavy but both! And thick as well!

    Hello! Lovely video and very helpful but the reason I wanted to watch it is to understand the bangs swoop but it was so fast, I did not understand how to do it. Can you email me or post HOW you dried the hair for bangs sweep?

  98. Posted September 6, 2018

    Watched the video and found it to be very informative. My hair is a little shorter than yours but I in retrospect I maybe wasn’t sing enough of the products in my hair, so will be giving that a try. Wanted to thank you and hope to see more.

    Lost me after the flat iron. Do you brush your hair after applying the dry texture spray, how did you apply it, and can you use a liguid texture product? When did you brush your hair during this finishing process? And how do you refresh your style during the day. I live in Texas and it gets quite windy.

    Thank you so much for the blow dry info! I diffenatly learned some things. My question is, the back of my hair. I feel like a 2 year old trying to make the dryer and the brush work together. And I don’t want to brush and blow straight down. You may have already cover this, in which case just direct me to the video that explains this. Thank you! From all us ladies who needed help on tips to blow dry!

    I love your eyebrows. I’m blind like you and most blind pencils are too brown. Are yours natural or sa powder/pencil?

    I love your blogs on fixing hair. I never knew how to blow dry or use a flat iron or even Bobby pins before watching your blogs. I’m 63 and at Thanksgiving dinner yesterday my girls couldn’t believe how much better my hair looked. I told them they should have taught me how to use flat irons and blow dryers.

    GREAT video. Hadn’t heard of a root product, so that’s on my list now. And please ignore the rude folks commenting on YouTube–they obviously don’t get your humor and don’t realize that, in fact, you ARE an expert (former hair stylist). They can just move on to their next negative, uninformed comment!! Keep up the great work!

    I bought the Kenra hairspray and like it except the nozzle gets clogged quite frequently. Does yours do that?

  111. Posted June 5, 2019

    Hi Kate,
    Thank you for your video, really enjoyed two of them today. Blow drying mistakes and texturizing you a great job of covering everything, makes it so easy to follow.
    Thank You

    I run into the problem with my hair being SUPER tangled if I brush it, wet, damp or dry. I use conditioner and I even use a “detangling spray” but my head just aches if I brush it. Any tips for that? 🙁

    • Kate says
      Posted August 5, 2019

      Try using a “Wet brush”, start at the bottom and work your way up!

      Really appreciate your YouTube videos and blog, just found them! Great tips, I’m 50 and still learning about beauty…
      I love my hair, but when I apply product, sooner or later in the day, it looks oily!
      What products do you suggest please…
      I’m high-lighted blonde.

    I come back to this video time and time again! I recently started using the aquage uplifting foam and noticed it made my hair sticky. I section my hair the way I see in the video and run it through my hair. Any suggestions?

    • Kate says
      Posted August 19, 2019

      Stickiness may mean that you are using too much, try using less!

    HI, what brand of blow dryer is it that you use? I tried to go to the links for the products but they say they aren’t available any more and don’t say what the brand or name is. Love this video, very helpful.

    I just discovered your blog, subscribe on youtube. Your videos are great! I was previously drying hair with round brush, painful and much hair in brush. I tried your suggestions in this video and in the layering video and saw a major difference in my hair. Thank you and looking forward to more of your helpful videos.

    Hi! Helpful tips as always! Unnoticed you didn’t use a concentrator end. Are they a good idea or no? I have thick/coarse hair.

    I now have grey hair and my hairdresser always tells me NEVER to use a flat iron or curling iron. Is she right. She says I will burn and break my hair.
