How to Blow Dry Your Hair

If you use a blow dryer on your hair every day, then you will want to take special measures to keep your hair from drying out. Excessive heat from the blow dryer can be very damaging for your hair. Luckily, steps can be taken to prevent hair damage from occurring.

1. Be sure to use conditioner. This will keep your hair feeling and looking hydrated, even after you have used a blow dryer.

2. Upon exiting the shower, get as much moisture out of your hair as possible. You will want to scrunch the wetness out with a towel, but be sure not to rub!

3. Apply a protective hair product or mousse which is designed to make your hair damage resistant to heat. Many of these products will steam once heat hits them, so don’t be alarmed- you aren’t on fire!

4. Never put the blow dryer directly against your hair. It is important to keep it 4-6 inches away from your hair at all times.

5. After your hair is mostly dry, you can begin to style each individual section. This may require clipping and separating different sections of your hair. If you have shorter hair, you may only need to run the dryer through it once before straightening or applying product.
