Reduce the stress you put on your hair when blow drying by using the Tension Method. That old blow dryer with the comb attachment has a habit of leaving you with those horrible broken off hairs laid across your bathroom sink , so why not try a different approach?
Blow dryers with the comb attachment are definitely a quick fix solution to achieve stretched out hair. However, if you happen to be a Kinky Queen this may not always be the best choice.
With particularly delicate hair types, the use of the blow dryer with the comb attachment results in not only those tiny wisps of broken off hair, but those horrible 3/4 inch breaks, which only gets in the way if your goal is to grow longer healthy hair.
While it may be a more time consuming, the Tension Method is a more gentle approach to stretching your hair. There is no aggressive combing and with the use of the diffuser you can evenly spread the heat throughout your hair.
Notice how MsKibibi, gently pulls her hair and evenly distributes the heat to stretch her hair out. Looking at this definitely makes me think, you have to some patience to sit down and do all of this! This is definitely a process that you will want to do on a weekend or your day off where you have plenty of time on your hands.
Although it may be a more timely process, it’s worth it for the health of your hair. When you style your hair and especially when using heat you want to take your time and have patience to make the damage that you experience minimal to none.
Another motivating factor are MsKibibi’s end results, which look absolutely gorgeous, indicating the time invested is worth it.
