How To Blow Dry Your Hair In Half The Time

February 24, 2016 by Katelyn Holland

Does any woman in the world actually like blow drying her hair? It’s pain in the neck (literally) and can be a major time suck. Although my hair is relatively thin, it somehow takes forever to dry. I can leave the house at 8am with wet hair and it will still be damp by dinner time. This usually means I’m forced to blow dry my hair or risk walking around with sopping wet locks in the middle of February. Since blow drying your hair can be a process, I’ve discovered some tricks that have cut my blow drying time in half. Not only will these tips shorten your drying time, but they will also reduce heat damage. That means less frizz and more time to sleep. So read on, ladies!

Wrap your hair in microfiber towel: Key word: microfiber. Microfiber towels are more absorbent than cotton and will take your hair from drenched to almost-dry in minutes. My favorite is the Aquis Liss Luxe Hair Towel ($30). After I get out of the shower, I use it to wrap up my hair. The light-weight, absorbent fabric sucks the water out of my hair in just a couple of minutes.

Use a blow dry spray: After toweling drying, spritz a blow dry spray in your hair and distribute it evenly with a comb.  A good blow dry spray will dramatically reduce your blow-drying time and protect your hair from heat damage. Basically. these products work by filling the “holes” of the hair shaft with keratin proteins and silk amino acids. This helps seal the cuticle and keep the water out. I recommend the Kendra Professional Blow-Dry Spray ($22). This product cut my blow drying time down to five minutes!

Change your hair brush: How old is your hair brush? Chances are you are long overdue for a upgrade. Try a brush with vents like this one from Sephora ($22). Vents help promote air flow and reduce drying time. Don’t want to buy a new brush? Clean your old one. The build-up on your brush can be preventing your hair from looking its best.

Invest in a better blow dryer: A good blow dryer makes all the difference. The Harry Josh’s Pro Tools 2000 Pro Dryer ($300) is one of the best blow dryers on the market. It’s pricey, but the time it will save you makes it worth it.
