25 Aug How to Nail the Perfect Air-Dry Hair
We all love air-drying our hair. It’s a quick and easy way to avoid using heat, and it’s better for your hair in the long run.
But if you’re not doing it correctly, you might be causing more harm than good and more hassle than the benefits yield.
In this blog post, we will discuss four common mistakes people make when air-drying their hair. By avoiding these mistakes, you can achieve soft and healthy air-dried hair!
Mistake #1 – Air-Dry not Towel Dry
After you wash your hair, you should use a towel to gently remove excess water from the hair. Being too aggressive with a towel though, is a major cause of hair breakage. Squeeze your strands with a towel but don’t rub.
Mistake #2 – Not Using a Leave-in Conditioner.
Leave-in conditioner helps to hydrate and protect your hair, which is important when air-drying.
It can also help to detangle your hair, making the air-drying process easier and less damaging.
Mistake #3 – Sleeping with Wet Hair.
Sleeping with wet hair is a big no no. Don’t do it. Your hair is in its most fragile state when wet.
At night, we toss and turn, and our hair takes the brunt of all that movement. Sleeping with wet hair can lead to breakage, loss of elasticity, and an uneven dry.
Allow your hair to fully dry before hitting the hay to preserve its health and overall shape.
Mistake #4 – Excessive Combing or Styling.
Ok, so you’ve towel-dried (squeezed) your hair and applied your leave in conditioner. The last thing to do is…nothing!
Let your strands be for a little while and avoid excessive combing or playing with your hair.
If you are going to tie your hair up; braid it or bun-it while it dries, make sure you leave it as loose as you can.
The less you disturb air-drying hair, the better.
These are just a few tips to help you air-dry your hair the right way!
By following these simple steps, you can achieve soft, healthy, and beautiful air-dried hair to give your hair a break from heat.
