Even if you want to blow-dry your hair to create inward curls easily, it is difficult to blow-dry while holding a hairbrush and a hair dryer, respectively. Here, we will show you how to successfully create inward curls using a roll-type hairbrush and a hair dryer.
Cooling keeps curls in place!
Hair retains its style when the heat given by a hair dryer or other means cools down. It is this cooling that allows the blow-dryer to maintain the inward curl style. The most important point of inwardly curled blow-drying is to use a brush to keep the inward curl in place during the period between the application of warm air from the hair dryer and the cooling down of the hair.

- out-balance treatment before blow-drying
After towel-drying, apply a thorough out-burst treatment from the middle to the ends of the hair, which are vulnerable to blow-drying damage. A lightweight oil treatment is recommended.
- Dry the roots of the hair first.
Use a hair dryer only to dry the roots first, as they are the hardest part of the hair to dry. It is OK if the entire hair is 80% dry to avoid over-drying.
- Brush to condition hair
Brush the ends of the hair with a roll brush. Hold the brush with your dominant hand and brush firmly from the middle of the hair to the ends.
- apply heat from a hair dryer while holding the brush in place.
After brushing from the middle of the hair to the ends, tuck the ends into the brush and curl the hair inwards. Hold the brush in your other hand and apply heat to the brush with your dominant hand for about 5 seconds. 5.
- Cool the heat and keep curling the hair inwards.
After applying hair dryer, hold brush in place until heat is cooled. 10 seconds after heat is cooled, remove brush by brushing downward. 6.
- Finish with hairspray.
Once the inward curls are firmly in place, finish with hairspray. Lift the hair ends slightly with the palm of the hand and spray from the inside. In this case, a hairspray with natural holding power that does not harden too quickly is recommended.
Be careful not to overdry the inner blowdryer.
Use a roll brush that is thicker at the top and slightly thinner than that at the ends to create a firm curl. If you have difficulty using a roll brush, you can use a curl dryer only for the ends after drying the entire hair 80% of the time. However, curl dryers tend to dry out the ends of the hair by applying too much heat, so be careful not to over-dry.
