How to make beach waves using Remington 3 in 1 Styler Blow Dryer

Recently my Remington Ion Blow Dryer died (RIP).  It’s been about 3-4 years since I bought it, so I guess it was time, and I use it on a regular basis.  So in search for a new blow dryer, I ran into another Remington Blow Dryer.  I saw a Youtube clip of this blow dryer in the works, and once again, I was AMAZED! (I get amazed by a lot of things… hhahaha)  I bought my Remington 3-in-1 Styler/Hairdryer 4-pc. Kit through Amazon, but I realized that Target sells these also.  My BFF picked one up herself at Target after I told her how cool this blow dryer was! (But check their stock before you make a trip)

It’s just a regular blow dryer with 3 tools: 1. volumizer/diffuser 2. concentrator 3. beach wave maker.  Only thing unique about this blow dryer is the beach wave maker tool. 



The beach wave maker attached to the blow dryer looks like this.  Basically it’s a wind tunnel and throws your hair around and winds it up turning them into almost dread like… (however, it’s not dreads, it’s more like twisties)  So you let these dreads/twisties cool, and you toss your hair around separating it.  It’s pretty effortless and very easy to do, if you are not very good with hair tools.  It took me 15 minutes to do my hair.

So here are some before, during, and after pictures.
Before I started blow drying… slightly wavy and still wet.  I applied some Living Proof Full Thickening Mousse (which is very awesome btw).  Brushed it through.

After I twisted some hair around.  Letting it cool.

Voila! Messy Beach Waves!  I didn’t put any styling products other than my heat protectant but I’d recommend you do!  Don't expect miracles of giving you curls.  This is a beach wave maker.  Beach waves look like you went surfing in the salt water and you came out looking like this.  It doesn't "curl" your hair!

How to use:
1. Wash your hair. Towel Dry.
2. Put heat protectant or hair styling products. Brush/ comb it through.  Make sure your hair is not knotted. 
3. Blow Dry your roots to give it some volume.
4. Make sure your hair is slightly damp but not soaking wet.  Section your hair to about 6-10 pieces.
5.  Turn on your Remington 3 in 1 Styler to high, drop section of your hair into the wind tunnel and move it up and down or side to side (depending on how you are holding it) until your hair is completely dry.
6.  Press the cold shoot button for a little bit.  Take your hair out.  Leave it in dreads.  Move on to the next section of hair.
7. After you are done with the entire head, let it cool, and make sure it’s completely dry.  I’d say good 10 minutes.  Might want to go take care of other things like makeup while it’s cooling.
8. Turn your hair upside down and tousle your roots separating the dreads.  Or you don’t have to flip up side down, you can just separate your dreads.
9. Apply products as you see necessary.

Miloberry Tips:
I had use it twice and tried different techniques with each of the strands to see if it had any different effects.
1. For bigger waves, grab bigger sections of hair to twirl around. (but this might take a little longer to dry)
2. Hold the blow dryer at different angles, this will twist your hair differently. I liked holding my dryer so that the ends of the wind tunnel tool was facing side to side instead of top to bottom.
3. To dry your hair faster, twist smaller sections then later grab 2 or 3 twisted sections and drop it into the wind tunnel together creating one big section from 2 or 3 sections.  This gives you slightly bigger waves.
4. Leave the dread on and go to sleep with it.  This will give even longer time to set the waves.  I slept with it and the dreads were intact when I woke up in the morning.  And my hair was soft not frizzy.
This is how my hair turned out after I tried all the tricks above. ^__^

Some Pictures from my BFF, who tried it herself.  And she loves it too! :) We both agreed it's really fun to blow dry your hair. hahahaha

Overall, I really like this blow dryer because it’s a Remington and I always had good experiences with them.  And I like how it came with all the tools like a regular blow dryer and as an added bonus, it came with the beach wave maker.  I’m totally lovin the beach waves. ^__^
And I really loved the price of this dryer.  Only $25!!!
And it has Eco Friendly Settings.  
And it’s really fun using this dryer!
And I can’t say anything bad about this dryer.  I’m in love!

Here’s some Youtube videos on how people use the Remington 3 in 1 Styler.
This one is not in english, but I guess it's called the Remington Spin Curl in other countries.  But you don't need to understand.... just watch. kekeke
