How do you use a hairdryer diffuser? Perhaps you have naturally curly hair and are keen to try this mysterious looking tool or maybe you have already invested and you're at a loss as to how to use it. No fear! We have the definitive blog post to help you become a diffuser dab-hand in no time.

What is a diffuser?

Put simply, a hairdryer diffuser is a round, plastic attachment that you can slide onto the nozzle of your hairdryer. A diffuser works by spreading the airstream over a wider area in a more controlled way.

Diffusers are great for those with curly to wavy hair types as it can help to keep the natural curl pattern. Without a diffuser, you can easily blow curls out of shape and into a frizz.



To get the most out of your diffuser, you must use a low heat and speed setting to prevent the hair tangling. This makes the process a long one but for those wanting to banish the frizz entirely, usually time worth spending.

Our Airshot diffuser allows you to adjust the airflow to cater to your hair type. You can do this by rotating the nozzles to allow as much or as little air to travel through.

Place a section of hair onto the diffuser and press it up against your scalp as you blow dry. Ensure that you tilt your head into the diffuser rather than applying the heat downwards. The airflow should always be pointed up therefore stabilising the diffuser over the nozzle.

To achieve the best results from your diffuser, apply a curl defining product beforehand.



Anyone can use a diffuser attachment however you should get the best results if you have afro or naturally curly hair. If you have wavy hair which you instinctively straighten, perhaps try this technique to bring out your most natural curl pattern - you might be surprised!



- De-tangle your hair when wet. This will help to minimise your risk of frizz. Gently combing your hair in the shower with a wide toothed comb will give your hair the best chance of forming it's natural curl pattern.

- Try to avoid rubbing your hair with a towel. Wrapping your hair in a t-shirt, soft rag or microfiber towel to squeeze the excess water is much less abrasive to the hair which in turn means less frizz to your curls.

- Start by drying the ends of your hair and moving up toward the roots as you dry. Flip your head upside down achieve further volume at the roots.

-Diffuse the hair to about 80% dry. Letting it air dry towards the end will give it a bouncy, hydrated finish.
