How To Use the Digital Sensor Dryer | VS Sassoon


1. To prepare for a blow dry, section hair into 3 sections, bottom, top and middle.

2. For a smoother style, use a fine and wide concentrator 6 x 90mm. Work the brush underneath each section with the dryer on top and concentrator facing down for added smoothness.

3. Don't forget to dry the ends around the brush for a beautiful finish.

4. Repeat through all sections until dry.  

5. Once the section is dry, and press the cold shot button to set the style.

And that's how you create a smooth, straight blow dry!

1. To prepare for a blow dry, section hair into 3 sections, bottom, top and middle.

2. Attach the concentrator and select the high heat and speed settings. Using a round brush take sections the same size as your brush.  Work the brush from roots to ends pointing the dryer down the section to create smoothness. 

3. Continue drying hair and pull each section up and out as you dry.

4. Wrap and roll each section of hair around the brush until dry. Use the cool shot on the dryer to lock in the style and shine.

5. Repeat this through all sections until your hair is dry. 

That’s how you blow dry hair and create a big, voluminous blowout at home.
