Blow-drying simply ups the glamour quotient of your mane, no doubt. From laying the groundwork for styling to keeping your hair frizz-free, blow-dryers are a blessing in every girl’s life. However, it’s only during summers that you wished you were never introduced to this tool altogether (because it’s addictive, duh).
On sweltering summer days, the last thing you want to do is use a blow dryer. So, what exactly are you supposed to do? Air-drying is the solution! Confused? Don’t worry! We’ve got you covered with how to ace the perfect air-dry every time you step out of the shower... And no, you won’t be left with frizzy locks, we promise!
Say no to towel-drying
Wet hair is at its weakest and most fragile state. Precisely why, you must avoid bringing it in contact with frizz-causing towels. If you want a successful air-dry, we suggest you opt for a soft cotton T-shirt or a microfiber cloth to squeeze water out of your hair. These materials, unlike a towel, are made of finer threads that won’t disturb your strands.
Try a volumising hair mousse
While air-drying your hair, it’s ideal to use a mousse to avoid the stiff, crunchy feeling. Once out of the shower, take a dollop of mousse on your palm, then dip your fingers into the mousse and rub it at the scalp. The roots require most product to lift your hair and add volume. Lastly, scrunch your hair and allow the curly tendrils to form. Avoid brushing or detangling as that can create frizz.
Braid it wet
Braid wet hair and let it air-dry. If you want a soft, wavy texture, then go for a looser braid, and for a more crimped look, tie a tighter braid. Doing so will not only tame your hair but also help you style your hair without the help of heat-styling tools.
