What are the benefits of the PATTERN Blow Dryer?
How is it different from other brands? Designed for curly, coily and tight textures. Delivers precision blowouts. Dries curls and coils quickly. Smoothes the cuticle. Curls are voluminous & defined. Leaves hair feeling healthier.
How do I choose the right temperature and speed setting for my hair type?
Choose the temperature setting based on the hair's condition and texture. Opt for lower heat + speed settings for finer hair and higher settings for thick or coarse textures.
Can this cause heat damage if I do not use the Pattern Heat protectant? Can I use my own heat protectant?
Heat damage can occur when heat styling tools aren't used properly and without the use of heat protectant. For best results, we suggest prepping your curls with Pattern's heat protectant.
What is the difference between diffusing and air drying and how is it better?
Diffusing speeds up drying time by gently, dispersing air evenly over a wider area of the hair and helps to prevent frizz and enhance your natural curls. Air drying allows the hair to dry on its own, which causes the hair to be wet for a longer period of time. When hair is wet, it swells, making it more fragile and more susceptible to breakage.
How do you use the concentration attachment?
Use the concentration attachment to direct airflow, keeping the blow dryer moving evenly along the section until it's dry. To elongate curly styles once hair is dry, grab hair, in sections, gently stretch and direct warm heat, for approximately 5 seconds p/section, at the roots using the concentrator.
How do you use the Wide Tooth Comb attachment?
Starting from the ends and working up the strands, use the wide-tooth comb attachment to detangle, unleash volume, and stretch the hair. How do you use the Brush Attachment? Starting from the ends and working up the strands, use the bristles to detangle and smooth the hair, section by section.
Attachments Will they break with my coarse type 4 hair?
The attachments, themselves, will not cause breakage. Misuse of the attachments can.
Is it required to use the leave-in conditioner and the heat protectant with this attachment?
While it is not required, it is highly encouraged. How do you use the diffuser? Arrange detangled curls, coils, and tight textures in the desired direction, while wet. Hover over the hair with the diffuser, in sections, until hair is thoroughly dry.
Heat Protectant Will this protect my curls against the heat of your dryer?
Yes. The heat protectant will help to protect your curls during use of the Pattern Blow Dryer.
Is it required to use the heat protectant with the blow dryer?

Can you still damage your hair if you use this heat protectant?
Hair may still be susceptible to damage due to extreme heat and overuse of heat styling tools.
Can you use too much of the heat protectant?
