How to Acheive a Smooth and Straight Look


I have fallen in love with a hair dryer and must shout it from the rooftops.


The Sedu 4000i. This powerful bad boy is the king of smooth. Take a look for yourself!


OMG. Please don’t dwell on that first photo as it was VERY EARLY in the morning. (The things I will do to spread the word about hair products, I swear.)

Armed with a round brush, your favorite heat protectant and the Sedu, you can whip that crazy hair into shape in minutes!

Start by combing your hair with a wide-toothed comb. (Mine is from Sephora.)


Add you favorite smoothing/heat protectant. On this particular day, I used Redken Satinwear Ultimate Blow Dry Lotion.

(Others I like are Kerastase Chroma Riche Leave-In Treatment, Bumble and Bumble Styling Lotion, Matrix Sleek Look Sealing Serum, Sedu Moisturizing Heat Protecting Boost and my absolute very favorite on the entire planet, Kerastase Nectar Thermique. Which is an entire post in itself. Seriously, it is worth EVERY PENNY.)

Work the product through your hair.


Oh, wait. For those of you with sideswept bangs, go ahead and knock those out by drying them in the OPPOSITE direction of how you want them to lay. Seems counterintuitive, but it works! See?


Okay. Separate your hair into sections.


Start drying away!


Remember to keep the dryer nozzle pointed downwards towards the hair shaft as you pull your round brush slowly through the length of the hair.

Keep drying all of the sections until your face is dripping with sweat and you feel like dying.


When dry, add a dab of shine-enhancing product. (Favorites are Frederic Fekkai Glossing Cream and Moroccan Oil. Be careful with the Moroccan Oil, as you might want to take a swig after smelling the heavenly scent.)


Work the product through the mid-length of your hair to the ends. Touch up with a flat iron if necessary, and voilá!


Smooth and straight, baby.

  1. Commenting – because I still use the ol’ skool Revlon hair dryer from college and I could totally use this awesome one.

  2. Oh, wow. That might be the answer to my wack head of humpy curls. I would love to try it out.

    You are gorgeous, by the way.

  3. It is my ultimate goal each day to have straight and smooth hair! It almost never happens, but it is my dream!

  4. This is SO timley! I really need a new blow dryer – and I probably really need to stop buying them from Target or CVS. I didn’t realize a blow dryer could help with frizz.

  5. Iheartgreen says:

    This is awesome, as I desperately need a new hair dryer. Thanks for the hair tutorial!

  6. Awesome! I would love a new blow dryer. Mine is super old and it stinks. Not literally, but it stinks. LOL

  7. If I were to win one of those I might be tempted to dry my hair more often.
    .-= Jody´s last blog ..Negligant =-.

  8. Um, hello. That dryer sounds amazing. I would love one!

  9. oooh this looks pretty sweet :) i, too, still use a crappy old revlon hair dryer and could use an upgrade!

  10. Laura in LA says:

    Ooh ooh ooh! I so want this!

  11. ooh, pretty.

    I’m in that phase of growing out my hair where I really need a cut to give it some shape, but I keep putting it off to let it grow just a little more before before cutting even a teeny bit of it off. And then I got out and drop cash on a bunch of different hair products and tools thinking that flat irons, curling irons, and products and shampoos thinking that products will make up for a lack of shape.

    Yeah, I know. It makes no sense. But surely I’m not the only one who falls prey to this thinking.

  12. i love folica!

  13. I believe my mouth was hanging open just a little by the end of the post..Amazing! I love Folica!

  14. I love Folica!

  15. I feel like my soul needs this hair dryer. And I expect it to make my hair look like yours.

  16. Bring on the freebies!
    .-= Tatiana´s last blog ..Single Girl Menu =-.

  17. I would really really really like to win one of these. I never comment but I subscribe and I love the site (in case sucking up makes a difference at all!)
    .-= Alison´s last blog ..The Day Before School Starts =-.

  18. Looks great! I really need a new hair dryer, the one I use now is held together with duck tape.

  19. This hairdryer completes me. Please, please, let me be lucky!

  20. My hair dryer just bit the dust so I am stuck using my cruddy travel one until I get around to buying a new one. This would be perfect!

  21. Seriously? If you saw my current hair dryer you would immediately walk out of my bathroom, down the stairs and out of my house. Wouldn’t matter if I had a tray full of sushi or chocolate cake to convince you to stay–the hair dryer is that ghetto.

    If I don’t win (which I really hope I do) this is going on the to buy list.
    .-= Calee´s last blog ..Why does Mommy work? =-.

  22. Ummm, this would be awesome because my current hair dryer has its concentrator nozzle attachment thingy held on by duct tape. Seriously.
    .-= Abby´s last blog ..the dress chronicles, part II =-.

  23. what i would do for that hair! this dryer would be such an improvement over the travel dryer i use on a daily basis.

  24. I love it when you do tutorials! This hair dryer is awesome, here’s my virtual hat in the ring! Also I gotta check out that Moroccan oil:)

  26. I need a new hair dryer soooo bad. My dog broke my good one and I’ve been using a $10 jobby.


  28. i seriously need this- i have a 20 dolla blowdryer from cvs. crossing my fingers!!

  29. my stylist used this on me the last time i went for a cut…it was aaamazing…i need it!!!

  30. you are so pretty! and you make drying your hair straight look so easy. I hope with the new dryer i win it will be easy for me too. IS the bomb.

  31. I need you to come over and dry my hair – such a pro! Honestly, I’m lucky I even have any hair right now as I’m using such a fire hazard of a dryer. Save me now….
    .-= DesignHER Momma´s last blog ..My Vintage Vision has finally Arrived =-.

  32. Holy cow, yes please! I’m still using my crappy little conair that I’ve had for 5 years.

  33. I’d love one of these! My hair is so hard to get straight! Thanks for always posting great tips!

  34. As much as I love my blowdryer (due to its power and speed), it does NOT make my hair look like this, so I would love to win a new one!

  35. I’m feeling lucky. And also feeling like I WANT ONE.
    .-= Y´s last blog ..Hosed =-.

  36. How long did it take you to learn how to blow dry your hair so well? I always feel like a bit of a klutz, and sometimes I give up and dry it partially, which seems to aggravate frizz. Thanks for the tutorial AND the tips!

  37. Ok, so my hair dryer has a tendency to blow fuses, but I’m too cheap/lazy/intimidated to go buy a new one. This would be PERFECT.

  38. Christina says:

    After drying my hair today for the first time in over a week (never touched the dryer on vacation), this post is timely because what I ended up with today was not a pretty sight. Your tutorial was great and the product recommendations too. Tomorrow may just be a better hair day!!

  39. Is it lightweight? That’s always my problem with hair dryers.

    I so need this dryer!

  40. Oh, people, people, people. As the possessor of STRAIGHT STRAIGHT STRAIGHT hair I just don’t understand the why anyone would mess with curls or waves. Envious.

  41. I’ve been using a travel hair dryer for the past few weeks because mine died!
    .-= Lindsey´s last blog ..4 years of my life I’ll never get back…but may get the chance to relive =-.

  44. miss caro says:

    oh, awesome! i’m still pretending that summer will never end and i will hence never need another hair dryer ever again, but wait…are those leaves outside my window already changing their colour?

I’m currently using an old Revlon hair dryer that I inherited from my mom when I moved out of my parents’ house over four years ago. I wish it would just die already! It really doesn’t work well at.all. I’m currently at work (shhh) with wet hair because I didn’t have time to dry my hair completely. (I know, classy, right?!) But maybe the new hair dryer would dry my hair faster and/or it would be just SO amazing I would wake up earlier to use it. Fingers Crossed!

    Please pick me!!!! My daughter just graduated from college and is apalled by my hair! She inheirited my wavy frizzy hair but can turn it into a glorious head of soft curls! This hair dryer would help break me out of what she calls my abusive hair habits (I still use hot curlers)

  211. My hair wouldn’t even know what to do with this. Probably couldn’t handle the awesome.

  212. My hair dresser is begging me to step away from the flat iron before I go bald and I’m trying but my hair just looks so much better straight and I can’t seem to get it that way with my crappy blow dryer. I need a kick ass hair dryer..or a wig.

  213. need new hairdryer desperately. thanks for the giveaway!

    Please, pretty please, pick me! I love your tutorials and your product reviews.

  290. Cassandra says:

    I hate you and your hair. And I mean that in the nicest way possible. :)

    I just found this site last night, and I’ve spent most of my day today reading it. I have the most boring flat, fine hair and have never really styled it because, well, I gave up on it. My family has full, bouncy hair, and I can remember my mom giving up on it too whenever she tried to give it a little life for me when I was kid. (Thanks, mom, you quitter!) Okay, so I probably don’t need a blow dryer. I mean, I don’t even own one (?!), but maybe that’s part of the problem. Anyway, it’s time for a cut and something new, and after checking out this place some more, hopefully I won’t have to be so bitter.

  291. This dryer would definitely be a step up from my crappy current model!

  292. Your hair is amazing! If the Sedu can make my hair look like that, I’m sold!

  314. In the words of my litle girl, “I so love it!” Awesome giveaway!

  315. I am envious of women who can achieve the straight look with nothing but a blowdryer and a brush. Maybe I should spend more than $19.95 at Walmart for a hairdryer…

  403. maybe that’s why my hair is not smooth — I’m using the wrong hairdryer! Great results!

  404. I need a new hair dryer. Thanks for the chance to win one!

  405. Wowza…I’ve never used an expensive hair dryer and I didn’t realize it could make such a big difference. Lovely!

  406. Oh, yes please! I have been using the same hair dryer since high school (over 12 years ago) and desperately need a new one. I should just suck it up and go buy one but I always feel bad spending that amount on myself. Nothing like mother’s guilt.

  407. Would love to win this! The tutorial was great, and it looks like my hair would probably look much better when styled by a hair drier that cost more than $30. Fun!

  418. Vanessa H says:

    first time on your website thanks to miss Karen at MBB! Lovely hair!

    I understand about sweating…worst part of summer is using a hairdryer or flat iron for more than 5 mins at a time lol

  419. Wow, thanks for the great hair tutorial! I’m dying to try out the Moroccanoil now.

  420. Wow your hair looks freakin’ fantastic! I have big, poofy, wavy hair that gets frizzy and triples in volume when I brush it!

  421. Please sign me up for the giveaway! The Sedu Hair Dryer might just be what I need to make make blowdrying my hair in the morning less of a chore.

  422. E's Mommy says:

    I would love that hair dryer! Sadly I think mine is some $10 from Target.

  423. Awesome review! I like that you posted clear photos and explain everything so detailed. I really need this dryer, my ex just broke about a year ago and since then I couldn’t find a good one. I can see it did miracles with your hair.

  427. Wow, it looks like a dream hair dryer! I’d love to win it! :)
    And the review is great! I laughed at the “Keep drying all of the sections until your face is dripping with sweat and you feel like dying”, that’s exactly how I feel every time I blow dry my hair…

  428. This would be great!

  429. I WISH.My blowdryer is ancient, and missing a button, so it is permanently set to medium.

  430. Your hair looks sooo good! I NEED NEED NEED this hair dryer!

  431. Christina says:

    That image is all kinds of superawesome. I tell myself I know how to give myself a proper blow-out, and then I get super frustrated half way through, and I do indeed feel like dying from the heat…but I just give up. This looks like it may make it easier!

  432. I would love to have that hair dryer! Pick me!

  433. i use sedu’s flat iron and looove it so i can only imagine that their hair dryer is AHmazing!! i would love it too :)

  434. This blowdryer looks amazing and God knows I need a new one… mine’s about 9 years old!

    Love Hair Thursday!

  435. I love that gif that you made for your review. Sounds like agreat dryer, and I definitely need a new one.

  436. my curls could use a hardcore dryer like that! they’re so hard to work with, and tend to frizz out when i try and blow them out.

  437. I could use a new hair dryer!! Your hair looks great.

  438. tera Stephens says:

  439. Fabulous blowout! I need a new hair dryer so badly, I think mine is 10 years old :(

  440. Ooh! Pick me! :)

  441. So glad Sedu is getting some much needed praise- I’ve been using their flat iron for years and it hasn’t failed me yet. My fluffy curls NEED this blow dryer, would love to try it!

  442. This is probably one of the best giveaways I could ever enter! I’ve been in dire need of a quality hair dryer for some time – AND instructions on how to do it/products to use. Thanks for providing both!
    .-= Katharine´s last blog ..Audrey-isms =-.

  443. It would be awesome to have this dryer. I fight every morning with drying and then styling always rushing out the door late as usual and speed racing so I’m not late for work. This will help so much to decrease the time spent drying, drying, drying and then styling, styling, styling!

  444. This is too awesome. I can’t get my hair staight and un-puffy without 30+ with a flat iron. I think this is just what I need.

    PS Your hair looks great!

  445. this looks awesooome!

  446. Pick me! Pick me! I need an awesome hair dryer. I have THICK hair and need all the help I can get…lol
