Tips on Drying your Hair
If you’re treating your hair right, it’s probably getting wet fairly regularly. After all, this is the only way you’re going to be able to wash, condition, and hydrate. Unfortunately, for as long as your hair is wet, it is going to be all the more vulnerable to damage. This is why it is important to practice a proper, gentle drying technique.
Hair Drying Techniques
The first thing to realize is that you should avoid over-applying heat to your hair. This serves to dry out your hair, and even burn it in some cases. With this in mind, try to limit your use of a hair dryer.
Try towel-drying your hair, using a patting motion instead of a rubbing motion. This will take more time, but will keep your hair from breaking off. Some use microfiber hair towels or even a cotton t-shirt to minimize hair damage during the process.
Air drying is also a good choice, though you will need to be mindful of your hair until it is dry. This means you will need to avoid brushing your hair for as long as it is wet. If you absolutely need to brush following your shower, you should consider using a shower cap.
