Hello, my name is Andy Heasman from Rush. I'm the International Artistic Director. Okay, today I'm going to be showing you how to diffuse hair.
Now, first of all, we're going to need a product to hold the curl together. I'm going to, today, use Shu Uemura Products, a slight cream. It's just a very versatile product, and I'm just going to rub it through my hands.
Make sure I get a nice even consistency on the hands. You don't want any kinds of lumps so that you can apply too much to certain areas and less in others. Then I'm going to comb through the hair and start to squeeze it into my hands to obviously initiate the whole process.
Just apply a little bit more. Make sure you rub it really through your hands. Mainly concentrating on the ends, and then working it into the mid lengths.
Start that curl. Okay, first of all, this is a diffuser. This is an instrument that goes on the end of a hairdryer, like so.
You push it in firmly. And what this actually does, is it makes the air filter out a lot softer, and slower, and it diffuses the heat, if you like. That's why it's called a diffuser.
Now, I'm going to apply the settings on medium heat, medium speed, so it very slowly dries the hair off. And one key thing to diffusing is you don't touch the hair too much. You just want to lift the hair up and apply the diffuser in.
Just apply the head slowly back and just slowly let the hair diffuse off. Move around bit by bit. You can see the separation starting to appear into the hair.
You should come in to the sides, get the hair up right into the diffuser and allow the head to do the work for you. And as you start to see the hair dry now, you don't want to hold the dryer to the hair. Got to be very very careful.
If you stop, you can feel the ends starting to dry. That's when you can start finishing up. Squeezing it, just need to work it a little bit through so it goes underneath.
I'm going to use another product now, called Silk Mesh, which is more of a cream. Squeeze through the ends. It almost fits those curls in place for me.
Don't touch the hair too much as your drying through. Let the curl fix itself in place. As the hair starts to dry, then you can start using your fingers to manipulate this into shape.
Always use a cream first, or a mousse type product, to obviously fix the curl in place. And always finish up with a cream just to separate and give that little bit more fix to the curls at the end. And that is how you diffuse dry hair. .
