Diffusing coily hair is a popular drying method with several benefits. However, if you are not aware of the methods for diffusing type 4 hair in the right way, your coily tresses can quickly end up with unwanted frizz!
Ways to Diffuse Coily Hair
Let’s take a closer look at the various diffusing techniques for coily hair. Depending on your desired outcome, you may use one or two of the following methods.
Stretch diffusing is very popular for anyone with coils as you experience alot of shrinkage with type 4 hair. This method allows you to stretch and elongate your curl as it is drying, resulting in more length once your curls are 100% dry.
Pixie Diffusing is probably the least popular method for diffusing coils as it encourages volume and a tighter curl pattern. If you were to select this method it may only be for a short period in a specific area.
If you want your coil to remain as they are once you have applied your styler, then Hover Diffusing is the technique for you. Holding the dryer around your coils means they benefit from the heat only without manipulating your type 4 tresses.
Understanding each method allows you to tailor your diffusing routine. You may combine all three to dry your coily hair.
Hair Dryers for Coily Haircuts
Now that you understand the different coily hair-diffusing techniques, let's talk about hair dryers. There are hundreds of dryers on the market; however, when you have coily hair, only one should be on your radar; our Curlsmith XXL Defrizzion Dryer.
Prepare Caring for coily hair was a priority when developing the technology to make our dryer great. The unique features include the following;
The dryer's safe temperature prevents heat damage and promotes healthy coils. However, we still recommend using heat protection such as our Miracle Shield.
This unique airflow ensures that the heat wraps around each coil for even drying.
Our ionizing defrizzion technology smooths the cuticles, boosts shine and eliminates dehydration that causes frizz.
We understand that diffusing coily hair can be time-consuming, especially for our low-porosity curl friends. We have created a hands-free feature to relieve those aching arms.
Far infrared heat
This type of heat penetrates coily hair to reduce drying time and damage.
Ensures even heat distribution meaning that you will not experience any hot spots. Porcelain ceramic is better for coils than Titanium, which can get too hot.
8 Inch diffuser
For those that thought all diffusers were the same, check out the features of what we believe to be the biggest diffuser in the world. The size allows you to dry your coils quickly as you have far more coverage. In addition, the deep prongs of the diffuser allow quicker drying of the roots.
Speed & heat settings
Our dryer features 2-speed settings for a controlled drying experience and 3 heat settings, plus a cool shot button to lock your coils in place and add shine.
We usually recommend low speed and low heat when diffusing your hair for the best results. However, as our dryer is so kind to the hair, it is possible to increase to a high speed and heat for faster drying whilst still achieving great results.
