Blowdrying your hair straight is definitely the cheaper option to permanently straightening your hair - all it takes is a few tools and products and a bit of practice.

What do I need?

- A hairdryer
- A large round brush. The size of the brush will depend on the length of your hair - your hair needs to be long enough to wrap around the brush once.
- A large paddle brush for final smoothing.
- Clips to keep hair out of the way. Large flat clips that hairdressers use work best.
- Styling products - products that protect your hair from moisture and hold the style. Moisture is what reverts the hair back to its natural wave, so products like mousse protect hair from moisture as well as heat damage.
- Gloss or serum to smooth over hair, remove frizz and finish off the look.


  • Start by washing your hair with a volumising range. Browse our Volumising range.
  • Comb with a wide-toothed comb to remove any tangles. Partially blow-dry your hair to get rid of excess moisture.
  • Spray a volumising tonic on your hair, or a handful of mousse spread from tips to ends for extra oomph.
  • Pin hair up and take out small sections at a time to blow-dry. Hold the dryer in one hand and a styling brush in the other.
  • Place the brush underneath the first section of hair and position it at the roots. Keep the tension on the hair (without tugging too hard) and move the brush down towards the ends, while directing the air flow down the hair, following the movement of the brush.
  • Blow-dry using a large, round brush with a metal core. Wind hair completely up the brush, focusing on creating lift at the roots. Gently blast hair with a hair-dryer until dry.
    Browse our range of Hairdryers.
  • Curl the brush under at the ends to achieve a slight bend. Continue until the back sections are completely dry and then repeat on the top sections of hair.
  • Finish with a light, flexible hairspray. Browse our range of HairSprays.
  • Remember, practice makes perfect!
