The Secret To My Big Curly Hair- Review + Video Tutorial

February 10, 2018

Hi Guys!

Nice to see you back for another review. If you’re new to my blog- hello, I’m Pallavi, the nut behind The Curious Jalebi. You’ve caught me in the middle of a new blog post- on my secret, essential weapon that dries my curls SO GOOD, I RARELY air dry any more. It’s called Diffusing.

All you need is a hair dryer attachment called, duh, diffuser. No, not the one you have at home to make your room smell better. This one’s for your hair!

So how did this post come about?

My best friend lent me her diffuser that is also super cheap, called Segolike Hair Diffuser! I loved it so much, I had to tell you guys!

I’m lucky to have a curly hair best friend who is more budget conscious than me- it routinely exposes me to great products that are hidden gems. Her recommendations have also helped me this year in my goal to spend less on my products and consequently save more money.

Last year, unknowingly I got it into my mind that products that are pricey are automatically better than inexpensive ones. Ah, the consequence of psychological marketing. Of course, better source materials and processes does beget a higher price but we forget the amount of money that goes into branding and shipping which brings up it’s price really high.

If you’re a college student or simply wish to keep your expenses minimum, finding inexpensive curly hair products is amazing. And since many of you ask me for cheaper products, I’m going to focus on such products as well and not just international ones this year.

So if you have to thank someone for this review, thank my best friend.

Now before we get to the review- let’s find out what exactly is a diffuser.

What is a Diffuser

A diffuser is an attachment that helps distribute/diffuse air flow with multiple air channels (fingers of a diffuser) over large surface area.

Who is it for:

  • If you have wavy/curly Hair and want more body and volume.
  • If your hair is fine & has thinner density & you want to make it look thicker.
  • Struggle every wash day in the morning because you need to rush to college/work or get your kids ready in a hurry? This will speed up the drying process!

Alright, let’s get to the review!

Even if you’re someone who knows about diffusing already but found them too expensive, you’re going to LOVE this product! I did. I was so happy with the results that I even made a video. I’ve included the video in this post so make sure you watch it to properly understand how I diffuse my hair.

  • It has a wide rim+ many ‘fingers’ that help in air flow.

Cons

  • It didn’t fit my friend’s hair dryer (pictured). She uses a Philips one, so she tucked the diffuser around another attachment of the hair dryer. Please check if the diameter of your hair dryer is around 6 cm before you buy this.

I literally, had no other complaint about this diffuser.

How to Use a Segolike Universal Collapsible Silicone Hair Diffuser:

1. Style your curls as usual with a leave in conditioner/cream/gel

For this post & video, I used As I Am Leave in Conditioner (CG Approved), Bodyshop Wheat Grass Gel (CG Approved) and my Denman Brush.

2. Set your hair dryer to low heat/low speed or cold. ( I start with low heat)

3. Take sections of your waves/curls in the diffuser and bring it towards your roots.

4. Keep it pressed gently against your scalp for a 30-40 seconds before moving to another section.

5. Use low heat until curls feel damp, not wet, and then switch to cold shot/mode. If you have the time, patience and energy- diffuse entirely on cold.

Caution:

If you suffer from back problems, bending for several minutes with your hair flipped forward can be painful. I say this from experience. You can do what @Spisha,Β does in that case. She basically lies down and diffuses different sections.

Pro Tips:

1. If diffusing is giving you frizz, check if you can switch to a hair dryer with tourmaline or ceramic technology.

2. If you can’t change your tools, change your method. Try pixie curl diffusing.

3. Remember to measure and match both the diameter of the hair dryer and the diffuser attachment if you are buying them separately.

4. Don’t touch your hair with your fingers while you are diffusing.

5. Add duck bill clips at the crown for even more volume

6. ‘Double Plop’ before drying- speeds up the process.

Whew! I hope this review+ my primer on diffusing helps you with more relaxed mornings (or evenings, whenever you wash your curls) and gorgeous, killer waves and curls.
