How to Blow Dry Your Hair to Minimize Heat Damage

When it comes to your hair, heat can be your enemy. But when your hair is wet the fastest way to get it dry is to use a hair dryer. Unfortunately, hair dryers are concentrated blasts of heat that can strip your hair of the moisture that keeps it from becoming overly dry, brittle and unhealthy. There are ways that you can safely dry your hair with minimal damage, even when using a hair dryer.

Remove Excess Moisture, don’t start drying your hair while it’s soaking wet. Instead use a thick to towel to absorb most of the moisture. To do this, use the towel to squeeze the water from your hair until it damp. Use Heat Protectant Comb in a heat protectant or leave-in conditioner before using the hair dryer. This will provide protection from the extreme heat of the dryer. Set the Dryer to the Right Setting When using the dryer, don’t set it on the highest setting. Your hair is already partially towel dried and the highest setting is too hot to safely dry your hair without causing damage. Set it to medium instead. Keep It Moving

Don’t hold the dryer stationary while drying your hair. Instead, keep the flow of air moving to avoid accidentally singeing the strands of your hair. To protect your hair from daily damage it is important to understand how to safely use a blow dryer.
