Air Drying Your Hair

23 Aug

Getting up in the morning and dealing with wet hair from the morning shower can sometimes prove to be difficult. Whether you have to sort out large volume waves or low-key bends your hair type and time will prove whether you can, should and would have blown dry, towel dry or air dry in the morning. Air drying is always a best option since it protects your hair from damage from heat as well as from the beating it may take and your vigorously towel dry.

If you have large volume waves you will need some product to be able to keep your hair from going completely flat to frizzy. I would suggest you try raking a handful of hydrating mousse through damp hair or use a conditioning spray. These will add lots of volume while your hair dries throughout the day. As it is drying you can place your hair into a big, loose braid for nice, even waves and clip the braid into a bun a few inches up to give your hair a nice flowing body.

Does your hair have less volume or have low-key bends, then you have other options you can purse you make your hair air dry to look the best. You can use the same kind of methods as above with the moose or conditioner but instead of pinning up you pin or clip down. You should purposely flatten your roots through setting two loose braids. After about an hour you can finger shake the hair out so you have an easy and unfussy and frizz free look.

If you have straight and thick hair and want a wavy air dried look you can do a few things. First you will need to twist it up into four buns. If you use a single bun you run the risk of your hair holding a single large bend. Unless that’s your desired goal then use four buns to let the hair curve around your head and face. Use some spray conditioner or spray gel to give some hold as the hair dries so it will fall cleanly when you remove the buns.  If you are looking for soft waves of hair framing your face there are some options. If you already have straight or wavy hair all you have to do is tuck your hair behind your ears as it dries and clip a metal hairpin above each ear to exaggerate the bend.  A surprisingly simple trick that is very easy to execute.

One of the more common hair types that try to hair dry often is hair that holds soft spirals on thick, coarse and naturally curly hair. Don’t get me or anyone with curly hair wrong, having curly or thick hair is a lot of work to style. While it makes it a lot easier to rock a relaxer with this hair type maybe you feel the need for a change or maybe going to the stylist is inconvenient or too expensive. First ensure your hair is clean. An effective way is to break it into parts. Try dividing your hair into four equal sections and washes each one out separately to help minimize knots. Deep condition your hair then wear a shower or plastic cap to let the conditioner absorb completely into the hair, then wash out. This will ensure your hair is fully prepped for the next steps. After this is done massed with your fingertips across the hair and apply some moose or spray conditioner and let time go by to dry your hair. You won’t need to use any tools as this process will help your hair and you won’t need to do this prep as often as you think.

After you finally complete your air dry, try really hard to resist the feeling to touch it. Your hands may hold greasy residue or dirt which will weigh your hair down and cause all the work to go to waste.
