You know that heat styling can damage your hair, especially if your hair is already fine, brittle, or thin. To keep your hair looking as healthy as possible, most experts recommend skipping the blow dryer and air drying hair as often as you can.
However, if you want your hair to dry frizz-free and styled, air drying requires a little more effort than just washing your hair and letting nature take its course. Keep reading to learn how to air dry hair and have a good hair day.
5 Foolproof Methods for Air Drying Hair
Switch Your Shampoo
If you want frizz-free hair, the first thing you need to do is examine your washing routine.
Many shampoos are simply too harsh for hair. They can strip hair of its natural moisturizing oils. As a result, shampooed hair can be more parched and prone to frizz when exposed to moisture in the air.
Swapping out your regular shampoo for a more gentle formula like Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Shampoo could be your solution for healthier looking, air-dried hair. Viviscal Shampoo washes away dirt, excess greasiness, and product without stripping it of those healthy, smoothing oils.
Remember to always follow shampoo with a moisturizing conditioner like Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Conditioner. It replenishes hair to make sure your strands look thicker, smoother and more hydrated.
If you’re rubbing your hair with a towel as soon as you step out of the shower, you’re not doing your hair any favors. Traditional terrycloth towels rough up the surface of the hair’s cuticle, causing damage and making hair frizzier.
For frizz-free hair, gently squeeze extra moisture from your hair using your hands or a towel. Better yet, use a microfiber towel or old cotton t-shirt to remove excess water from hair. These fabrics are gentler on strands, so your hair will dry with less frizz.
Use a Leave-in Treatment
For no-blow dry hair, a leave-in treatment is an absolute must. We recommend applying two to three pumps of Viviscal Gorgeous Growth Densifying Elixir to damp hair, then allowing hair to air dry. This lightweight, body-boosting treatment creates thicker, fuller and more gorgeous-looking hair without a blow dryer. Plus, it infuses hair with a refreshing botanical fragrance. And who doesn’t love that?
Experiment with Wet Hairstyles
Leaving your hair down while it dries is certainly an option, but this method doesn’t always yield the best results for every hair type. Styling your hair while it’s wet can add waves to straight hair or give more definition to curls. Plus, these easy wet hairstyles can help your wet hair to look more polished as it dries. Try plaiting hair into two braids, do a twistout on natural hair, or setting hair with foam curlers. Experiment with different wet hairstyles to learn which works best for your hair texture.
Despite your best efforts, your hair may still dry with some flyaways. And that’s okay! Fight excess frizz by spraying an old toothbrush with hairspray. Then, use the tooth brush to gently coax flyaways into place.
Skipping the blow dryer and air drying hair is just one of many good habits to get into for healthy, gorgeous hair. But if your hair is seriously damaged, air drying alone may not be enough to get your hair looking healthy again. Viviscal Advanced Hair Health Supplements promote existing hair growth at your follicles with a combination of marine extracts, Biotin, Zinc, Iron and Vitamin C.
