So by now we all know what a diffuser is, right?
They’re the perfect hair drying tool to enhance or achieve a natural wave or curl.
But what if you don’t HAVE a diffuser?
What if you can’t afford one, or you just want to give it a go once to see how it would work for your hair?
Well, if this is you, you’re in luck.
One of 2023’s biggest TikTok trends is to use a pasta strainer to diffuse your hair.
Yes, you heard correct.
How do you use it?
Literally put your damp hair into the strainer (after you’ve added a curl cream and some heat protectant), then flip your head upside down into the strainer and hold a hair dryer (on a lower heat setting) up through the strainer until your hair is dry.
Also be careful with metal strainers - always use a mesh strainer. Metal will heat up quickly and could damage or burn your hair.
