I want to speak about how I towel dry my hair today.
But before we get to towel drying our hair after a shower we must use the proper methods to washing our hair. The key to less frizzy hair is using shampoo fewer times a week, shampoo strips your hair of its natural oils which causes frizziness. Gently massage the shampoo in your scalp with warm water, then use conditioner the ends of your hair to have your hair look shinny and hydrated. A pro-tip is to brush your hair while you are still in the shower to prevent breakage… And now to the towel drying!
Towel-drying your hair is important to help remove water, so hair can dry faster. Yet, the wrong technique can result in extra frizz, tangles, and poufiness. The right ways to air dry hair include gentle drying techniques. It’s best to use your towel, or better yet a t-shirt or a microfiber towel to squeeze water out from your hair.
Having hair wrapped up in a towel allows the towel to gradually absorb the moisture without the rough-housing of rubbing it dry. Less friction on hair (which remember is weaker when it’s wet) means less breakage and split ends. Less friction also means less frizz.
What I do for myself is, after I take a shower I use a towel to squeeze water out from my hair. Then, I wrap my hair with a second clean towel until it is airdried 70-80%. Then, I blow dry it out with my favorite blow-dryer from @dysonhair
The method I use is the most suitable for healthy hair. Opposed to common assumptions, using a combination of air drying and blow drying is actually healthier for our hair.
