Air-dry for about 15 minutes, then flip your hair way forward and, with one hand, hold your hair slightly above the ends. (They dry faster.)
Blow-dry from roots to where you're holding your hair, using a nozzle attachment with a narrow opening. Hold your hair lightly so the curls stay intact. Make sure you don't use the dryer near your ends: If you do, you'll mess up what stylists nobly label "the integrity of the curl."
