How does a hairdryer dry wet hair?
When you plug in the hair dryer and turn the switch it on, the electrical current flows through the hair dryer. The circuit first supplies power to the heating element. In most hair dryers this is a bare coiled wire, but in models that are more expensive there can be fancier materials in action, like a tourmaline-infused ceramic coating. The current then makes the small electric motor spin and that turns the fan. The airflow generated by the fan is directed down the barrel of the hairdryer, over and through the heating element. As the air flows over and through the heated element, the generated heat warms the air by forced convection. The hot air streams out the end of the barrel. The hairdryer uses a small fan that looks like a hydraulic turbine (i.e. water wheel). The fan in a hair dryer uses electrical energy to generate airflow. The small motor actually sits inside the fan, which is firmly attached to the tip of the motor. When you supply power to the motor, the motor and the attached fan both spin. The centrifugal movement of the fan blades draws air in through the small round air inlets in the side casing of the hair dryer. These holes are covered by a safety screen that prevents other objects (such as strands of your hair) from being sucked in as well. The air is then blown down the barrel of the hair dryer. When you use it on your hair this hot air blows the water, or chases it, off the hair shaft. Imagine the hair is like glass. Water runs straight off of it.

Wet Hair or Dry Hair?It is better for your hair to be dry. Why? Well, it depends on where you are, or what you are doing. If you are sleeping with wet hair, that might make yo…u sick. Nothing serious, just a minor cold maybe. For me, having wet hair is uncomforable, but that might be different for you. On a cold day, you might get sick also, though it might cool you down on a hot day. Except on a hot day, it would dry quickly. But who cares anyway? Either way your hair is going to dry. It can't stay wet forever. ~Shannon YOU SON OF A 888888888888888888
I'm not a professional, but i would mouse my hair when it is wet. it holds better that way. but i haven't curled it after i moused it, so maybe it wouldn't work. idk. sorry if… i wasn't helpful
Dry! Wet could damage it.
Typically when it's dry, however, there are some straighteners that you can use on wet hair to go "wet-to-dry" . I recommend reading the instructions that came with the …straightener.
brush for 29 mins with fingers.
Well Im black, so I put Hair Milk in my hair. I spray it in my hair every 6 minutes. But maybe if your spanish or white or Indian you should put water in it every 5 minutes.
I have an amazing set of 'Wet to Dry hair Straighteners'. They are Remington S7902. My hairdresser told me about them, and i now love them! They are currently half price in …boots and superdrug at the moment. £39.99 in Boots, £29.99 in Superdrug.
Hair should be dry when coloring it. Any moisture left in the hair will dilute the color and affect the desired results.
Well you could just blow dry it, but one of the closest ways is just to braid it in pigtails and it will turn out kind of kinky and look so cute ;)
There are special hair products that will specialize on that. L.A looks has a gel that is made to hold your hair up in a ponytail or if you curl it and you don't want the to c…ome out. It is called WET LOOK. I have heard of pomades that do make your hair look wet but it isn't too. I don't know of any specific brands but there are some out there. I would Google it. [You may use Bing, Yahoo, MSN etc. if you perfer]
Either. Obviously if the hair's dry, the rollers need to be hot. If you're rolling your hair while it's wet, they don't have to be. And although rolling your hair when it's we…t takes a long time to dry, the curls turn out better looking and tend to last longer.
hard question. when your hair is dry that is it's natural size and shape, but when it's wet it does go down longer because the wet heaviness brings weight down. but usually …it works better with dry hair.
you put rollers on wet hair because when it drys it has more bounce
The water evaporates it is heat up by hairdryer and it turn into gas. called water vapor/
Wet they cut wet after shampoo-dry they cut it dry
Electricity is converted partially in to heat by means of a heating element built in the dryer. Another part of electricity is converted to a circular motion of an electri…c motor with a fan, which forces the hot air out of the hairdryer.
