Installation with a diffuser

One of the most harmless ways of laying. The diffuser is a special nozzle for a large-diameter round-shaped hair dryer with “spikes” in a circle.

  • Apply thermal protection and foam for fixation;

  • Dry your hair upside down on the diffuser nozzle.

Owners of thin hair before drying recommend using dry shampoo — it will give the hair extra volume.
