Blow Out Your Roots for Lift and Length

{Day 1 of a braid out that I blew out the roots for increased length and volume}

If your shrinkage is off the chain like me, then the day after you wash your hair and you take your braids or twists down your hair is looking mad small. Usually this doesn't phase me and by the 2nd or 3rd day, my hair is back to the volume and length I like. But when I have somewhere to be and want the fro bigger on that 1st day hair, I use my hot air brush (I use the concentration nozzle on it) to stretch out the roots some for volume and show some more of my length.

Give it a try. If you don't have a hot air brush, your regular blow dryer will do. Just make sure that you use a concentration nozzle attachment on it to receive optimal results.

For obvious reasons, like heat damage, you may not want to do this frequently. Remember, too much of anything isn't good for you. But as always, everyone's hair is different; so listen to your hair, do what you like and makes you happy.
