From the article : How to blow-dry your hair with a diffuser
Blow-drying isn't a simple one-method-fits-all task. There are many different ways to blowout your hair and many different attachments that come with the dryer to help you create different results.
The diffuser - the big one that looks like an oversized, weird, round hairbrush - is one such attachment that requires a little explaining for the uninitiated.
What it does
The blast of air from the dryer is spread out and diffused gently across the large surface area and through the fingers (the spiky things), preventing natural curls and waves from being blown out of shape during a blowout.
How to use a diffuser
Start by applying L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle CURVE IT Curl Taming Cream from root to tip before you begin drying. If you have time, leave your hair to air dry by itself for a little while before you reach for your dryer.
Flip your head upside down, then cup a section of hair in the diffuser. Make sure your locks are spread between the fingers so that the air will reach it all.
Switch your dryer on, using only a medium heat setting. Lift the diffuser towards your scalp as the hair dries so that the airflow gets to the roots. You can scrunch the roots with your fingertips for added volume if needed.
Keep going until your hair is almost totally dry, then let the rest dry by itself after applying a serum to combat frizz and flyaways throughout the day.
