Five Tips for Natural Hair Blowdry

Blow-dry service by Benita Blocker

  • Use a moisturizing conditioner layered by a Smoothing Conditioner
  • Use a wide tooth comb and distribute each conditioner throughout in two separate passes.
  • Set the dryer to "high heat" for platform dryer use unless you have a hair steamer.
  • Allow at least 20 minutes conditioning time
  • Avoid protein conditioning unless you want to define the curls more.

These steps should assist in hair hydration so much that the hair should feel elongated and non-resistant. (i.e. Ready for Blow-dry)


  1. Hello Ms Blocker any favorite products to use with this process for natural type 4 hair? Thanks. Also any thoughts on the Etae or Aveda Smooth Infusions as well thanks

    1. Hi Rose! Etae Carmel Treatment is softening. I haven't tried Aveda Smooth Infusion. Joico smoothing conditioner is good. Type 4 hair needs at least 20 minutes dryer time.
