Concentrator is used to control the air speed and flow from the blow dryer. It comes in different sizes (long, short, narrow, wide). wide nozzle is best used for drying long thick hair to expand the width of the air flow. This simply covers more area of the hair and dries faster.
Narrow nozzle is best used for polished finishes when more air concentration is need. For instance, the fringe and hair that are resistant to blow dry.
Usage tip: Never suffocate the nozzle by direct contact with the brush. You want to leave at least a half inch space. This will make your blowdryer last longer and reduce hair from being damaged.
