    Hi. My name is Mona, I am with Lofty Salon. Weve showed you how to dry hair to achieve volume and fullness. Now I am going to show you how to reduce volume and blow dry naturally curly hair or think course hair. We have to follow the same - the exact opposite steps that we followed with achieving the volume. We will start when the hair is wet, because thats how we can reduce and eliminate the frizz, and we have to use product to help us achieve or to help us to help the hair from frizzing. You put that on the hair shaft and we dont have to worry about putting it on the roots, like we did with the fine hair and then we take sections and we always start from the bottom.

    You want to take small sections and you want to start by placing the blow dryer on the hair shafts as youre moving the brush down. So, follow the brush with the dryer down and you keep doing that until the hair is dry. You roll the hair and you hold it down and you put the heat down on it, and again, you make sure that the hair is completely cold before you let go, because the cold will set it to stay straight and then you move to the second section and you will do the same thing. You will continue doing the same thing until the whole hair is dry.
