How to Make Hair Dryer Nozzle at Home

A hairdryer is one of the best options to get rid of tangled hair. But when it comes to styling, one needs different types of the nozzle. The normal dryer comes with standard nozzles, which are quite handy in removing the excess water from your hair without creating any trouble. But if you want to style your hair and give them a perfect look, you need an advanced hairdryer nozzle for better results.

What Is Nozzle in Hair Dryer?

A nozzle is a small, thin piece from the hairdryer. Making a hairdryer nozzle at home helps you save a lot of money! Nozzles are designed in a way that can trap air and direct them through your strand of hair. They eliminate frizz by drying the strands quickly and also help in straightening them.

The hot air that comes out from the end contains ions that smooth up your hair cuticle, giving you shiny and silky smooth locks. But now and then, especially when you have been using your favorite hairdryer for years together, its nozzle may get damaged or start coming off due to regular wear and tear.

Things You’ll Need:

  • Hairdryer
  • Drill
  • Glue gun or superglue
  • Screwdriver or drill bit set
  • Sandpaper

A Step by Step Guide on How to Make Hair Dryer Nozzle at Home

Step 1: Determine How Thick the Hairdryer Nozzle is

To determine how thick the hairdryer nozzle should be, you must do a little experiment. First, take out your drill and set it on its lowest setting (usually 5 or 6). Then take two paper clips and see if they will fit into the holes of your drill bit.

If they do, then that means there isn’t enough space between each hole, and you need to make the opening more prominent by using either sandpaper or a file. On the other hand, if they don’t fit at all, your bits are too big, and you also need to make them smaller by using sandpaper or a file. Once you figure out which adjustment to make, go back until you find where I asked you to stop.

Step 2: How Long Does it Need to Be?

After determining how thick the nozzle should be, take out your drill again and measure how long you need your nozzle to be. Once you have that measurement, cut off a small piece of your hairdryer (2-3 inches should do) and make sure you leave enough room at the end where the bristles are.

It must leave enough room because it has to fit over everything without any parts sticking out when you put on the cap. If pieces are sticking out, they will get in between your bristles and prevent them from spinning. This will lead to lower suction capabilities once they’re finished.

Step 3: Drill

To find out how big you need to make your drill bit, take one of your hairdryer nozzles and try and fit it into the hole. If it fits in right away, there isn’t enough space between each hole, and you need to add more space by making them bigger with either sandpaper or a file. If the nozzle doesn’t fit inside, then chances are your bits are too small, so you’ll have to make them bigger by using either sandpaper or a file until they fit nicely in the opening. Once you’ve done this, go back until I ask you to once again.

Fit Inside of Your Hairdryer Nozzle

Step 4: Glue

Once you’ve determined the size of your drill bit and saw how well they fit inside of your hairdryer nozzle, it’s time to glue them in place. If you’re using a glue gun, pour some hot glue into the top of each hole and then push the paper clip into it. Ensure that the nozzle stays even and balanced while you let it cool down before taking any precautions. Instead of using superglue, apply a drop on each side and wait for them to dry before moving on entirely. 

If you plan on sanding these pieces later, make sure not to use too much glue because if there is too much when sanding them down, they might get caught up in the drill and snap off inside of it. Whatever you do, don’t apply too much glue, or else it might get in between the bristles and ruin your hairdryer completely.

Step 5: Test

Now that you’ve finished making your drill bits, all left is to put on some caps and try them out. If you used a glue gun, make sure to hold the nozzle firmly in place. At the same time, it dries for at least 30 seconds before taking any precautions with them because if there is still hot glue inside of the hole when using it, they could get stuck together and prevent each other from spinning correctly if they spin.

Smoothly, congratulations! You have successfully made your DIY hairdryer nozzles without spending hundreds of dollars on real ones.

Step 6: Sand Down the Drilled Out Pieces

Since you’ve already got your glue gun out, go ahead and take out some sandpaper or a file if you used superglue. If you’ve got sandpaper, then put it on a flat surface with either wood or metal underneath where you’re working. Next, run each piece over the paper until they are smooth enough to fit into your hairdryer nozzle perfectly without falling out. If you do all of this correctly, then that would mean that you have successfully made an improved version of the original hairdryer nozzle!

Tips and Warnings:

– Put the hose in a vice, then wrap around it with duct tape. This will give it strength and stiffness.

– Remember that half of the nozzle is supposed to be straight.

– Work in a well-ventilated area while using your hairdryer and creating the nozzle. The fumes from melting duct tape can be powerful and irritating to the eyes, lungs, and skin if inhaled or touched. Use caution.

– Don’t leave any hairdryer nozzle unattended when in use, as you may burn yourself or damage the hairdryer.
