The less you use a blow dry the faster your hair will grow.
Whether you just don’t have the time to blow dry or hate the thought of heat damage to your tresses, there are several effective drying and styling alternatives. The right combination of techniques and products can mean the difference between a frizzy, obviously air-dried ‘do and a sleek, healthy-looking head of hair.
Ladies, here is how to dry and straighten your hair without a blow dry:
1. First towel dry.
Use a highly absorbent towel to gently squeeze out excess moisture from your locks after stepping out of the shower. Don’t rub, but blot. Rubbing can lead to frizzy, damaged hair.
Gently detangle hair after towel drying with a wide-toothed comb, starting at the ends to avoid snags.
3. Apply a product to your hair.
Apply a serum or other smoothing product if you have frizz-prone or unruly hair.
4. Style hair using your fingertips rather than a blow dryer.
Gently lift and tousle locks at the roots to help save air drying time. Flip your hair upside down a few times to get rid of any remaining moisture and further speed the drying process.
5. Braid the hair into sections and let air dry for at least two hours in a dry, ventilated space.
Leave overnight and undo the braids.
