You've Been Drying Your Hair All Wrong--Here's The Right Way To Get The Job Done

This may be hard to believe, but you’re probably drying your hair all wrong. Don’t worry; you are not alone. We’re all guilty of a few hair care mistakes, especially when it comes to drying. Tresses feeling lackluster? Chances are something went all wrong during the drying process. Luckily, we’re here with some no-fail hair drying tips so that your strands always look lustrous, healthy and shiny.

Tip 1: Don’t wait to dry your hair. We know that it’s really easy to get distracted, but as soon as you step out of the shower, make sure to start the drying process. Why is this so important? Your freshly washed wet hair is most susceptible to damage!

Tip 2: Invest in the right tools. While most of us opt for our regular cotton towels to dry off with, it may be time to get a quality hair towel like the Lisse Luxe Hair Towel ($30) from AQUIS. They’re specially made with a fine fabric that cuts down on the friction that is common when drying with cotton towels, which can cause breakage and seriously damage hair over time.

Tip 3: Wait until hair is mostly dry before blow drying. Yes, breaking out the dryer is a fast option to dry off your damp tresses, but pulling out the heat so quickly is probably doing more harm than good. Drying hair unevenly can weaken your hair follicles and extract moisture that your strands need, leaving you with weak, brittle hair.

Tip 4: Use your blow dryer for styling–not drying. Once hair is mostly dry from using a good towel or turban, then you can take out your blow dryer to style your hair.
