Get rid of excess water

Gently squeeze out excess water from your hair by squeezing the tips with a microfiber towel or a t-shirt. Avoid using a regular towel, because it will make your hair frizzy and cause breakage.

Dry your hair

Get a diffuser and place it sideways or upside down against your hair. The diffuser bowl should be directed at the tips of your curls. Place one section of your hair at a time in the diffuser bowl and move the tool towards your head to dry your curls. Repeat until you’re done with all sections of your hair.
