We all know it’s difficult to keep your head under the hair-dryer for minutes together when the mercury is hitting forty degrees. But we can’t just leave the hair be! Unruly looking hair can ruin your entire look. Here’s a solution, try air-drying!
With the help of a few products, depending on your hair type, air-drying can provide those natural looking waves we see on celebs. Here’s how.
Once you’ve washed your hair, use an old cotton shirt instead of a towel to dry the excess water and keep the hair from getting frizzy. The cotton shirt is soft on your hair and also keeps the natural waves intact. Detangle the hair using a wide-tooth comb immediately after you’ve shirt-dried it.
For women with curls or waves, that tend to get frizzy if not blow-dried, we suggest using leave-in anti-frizz products like BBLUNT Climate Control Anti Frizz Leave-in Cream or Tresemme Smooth Anti-Frizz Secret Smoothing Creme.
For women with straight hair, we suggest applying your favourite hair oil to the roots to keep the moisture intact and let it air-dry. Longer hair tends to show better results with air-drying as it is less prone to being frizzy because of the weight.
Leave your hair alone once you’ve done all that and do not, we repeat, DO NOT keep touching it with your hands. Just let the hair dry and take it’s natural shape. You may use some more product once it’s dried if you feel your hair needs it.
