Blasting your hair with a hairdryer can give you the raw and undone look that you want, but it can leave your hair with a significant amount of damage that can become problematic over time. If you feel a little panicky at the thought of air drying your hair, don’t fret. With the right steps, it’s totally possible to have amazing waves without heat styling.
Use a wide tooth comb to detangle your hair while it’s still wet.
Scrunch a conditioning foam product into your hair. Apply the right amount of foam to the part of your hair that you want emphasised. For instance, if you want volume, work the foam into the roots. If you want a moisturizing effect, start at the ends where hair is often at its driest.
Use a t-shirt instead of a towel to dry your hair. The smoother surface of a t-shirt prevents the hair from crimping.
Always flip your head upside down and give it little scrunches to avoid a “pasted down” look.
It can be helpful to give that hairdryer a rest and practice these air drying tips from time to time to allow the hair some time to heal from heat damage. For more hair care tips, check out Lucinda Ellery reviews online.
