Today’s blow dryers and styling brushes has come along from there humble beginnings. There is no denying that the invention of hand-held hair dryers and styling brushes were major steps forward in the evolution of hair fashions. The first hand-held hair dryers were made of steel weighing over 2 pounds and produced 100 watts of heat. By the 1960’s space age plastic hair brushes and pestle-grip blow dryers with 1500 watts of heat were poised to change the look of hair fashions for both men and women and the professional beauty industry.
HOW BLOW DRY STYLING WORKS
The blow dryer is a device used to dry “wet hair” by blowing hot air over it. With the aid of a styling brush the damp hair can be transformed into any number of shapely hairstyles. It must be noted that the natural shape of the hair fiber is attributed to its internal hydrogen bonds which can be temporarily altered when exposed to water and rearranged with the aid of heat and traction. The new hair dryer’s not only dry hair quickly but include features that also improve the health of the hair.

To remove excess oil and styling aids use two shampoo applications if shampoo does not foam and leather well.
Pressure Point Message
Using pressure point message when shampooing your hair is a most effective way
to stimulate circulation and encourage healthy hair growth. It's easy, bend head forward and use finger tips starting at the temples (press, rotate and slide fingers up to the hairline). To relax tense scalp muscles and nerve endings place finger tips on each side of the neck (press, rotate and side up and down). Repeat this three times at temples and neck.
Steam Towel Conditioning Treatment
For an even coverage apply conditioner to back of the head were hair is thickest
and under the hair if long. Followed by the sides and front pressure point message. To stimulate circulation, relax tense scalp muscles, nerve endings and encourage the
conditioning treatment wrap a hot steam towel over the conditioner for 60 seconds.
