How to Dry Your Hair

How to Dry Your Hair

1,Comb out tangles using a wide-toothed comb before drying. Wet hair is fragile and easily breaks, so you should not brush it. Instead, spritz your hair with a leave-in conditioner and then detangle it with a wide-toothed comb. This will remove knots and smooth out your hair without risking damage.
  • As an alternative, you can use your fingers.
  • Start combing from your ends and work your way to your scalp. Don't try to pull your comb through the entire hair shaft until the ends are detangled.
  • If your hair is afro-textured, make sure that your hair is damp and slippery with conditioner before detangling. Then, work in small sections.

Use a T-shirt or microfiber towel instead of a regular towel to dry hair. After you get out of the shower, wrap your hair in a cotton T-Shirt. Towels are made of fabric that is very rough and damaging to your hair, causing frizz and split ends. If you enjoy the convenience of a towel, try a microfiber towel, which is gentler on hair.

    Let hair dry naturally when you can. Air drying your hair is the healthiest option. It may take awhile for your hair to completely dry, but your hair will be healthier in the long run.
    • Try not to use a blow-dryer, if the style doesn't require it. Heat from hair dryers can cause damage to hair.
    • If you shower before you sleep overnight, put your hair up in a bun and let it air-dry overnight. Your hair should be dry in the morning. However, this may not work for hair that is very thick or very long.

    Blow dry your hair on the warm setting, for quick or sleek results. A hair dryer may be necessary if you are straightening your hair or need your hair dry quickly. If you need heat to style your hair, set the dryer on the warm setting, rather than hot. It will take longer for your hair to dry, but the warm setting is less damaging for your hair.
    • Always spray your hair with a heat protectant product before you blow dry your hair. This helps prevent heat damage.
