How to Dry Your Hair Properly

How do you dry your hair? Naturally or using a blow dryer?

Well, some of you like to let your hair dry naturally or spend time wrapping it in a towel. If you let your hair dry naturally because you believe hair dryers are bad for your hair, and if you leave your hair on a towel for an extended period of time, your scalp is left in a wet environment which is not actually a good idea.


Because germs multiply in this situation, causing scalp dermatitis or even hair loss. The longer your hair is wet, the more water it absorbs and destroys the cuticle unless you dry it with hot air.

It is really best to dry your hair fast and efficiently using a hairdryer.

Then how should you properly dry your hair?

Step 1:

Before using a hairdryer, remove as much water as possible from your hair. If you do not remove enough moisture, you will have to use the hairdryer for a longer period of time rather than rubbing. It is preferable to gently pat with a towel, and it is also preferable to use absorbent towels.

Step 2:

Before blow-drying, apply hair essence or serum. Hair essence products shield your hair from the damaging effects of heat from a hairdryer. Because the ends of your hair have fewer nutrients and moisture, apply essence first to the ends of your hair.

Step 3:

Pat your scalp dry. The wind should be blown from the roots to the tips of the hair. Like fish scales, the cuticles that protect the hair overlap. They are applied from the scalp to the ends of the hair. If you dry your hair from the ends up, the cuticles will be raised, making your hair frizzy and crunchy.

Step 4

Do not use hot air to quickly dry your hair. Hot air raises the temperature of the scalp and stimulates hair follicles. It also dries the scalp and disrupts the water-oil balance on your scalp. Use a hairdryer at a distance and attempt to dry with cold air if feasible. If you don't have enough time, alternate between cold and hot air. This is more effective than simply utilizing cold air. If you end your blow-dry with chilly air, your hair will stay in place for longer.

Remember that you should always take good care of your hair because good hair day means you can expect a better day for you!
