If you're like us, you've always believed that blow-drying your hair caused the most damage--and letting your wet locks dry naturally was the best thing to keep your hair healthy.
Maybe it's time to reconsider this strategy. Hair that comes into contact with water swells, and when it swells, it it becomes damaged. The longer it stays wet, the longer the potential for damage. Of course, high heat from the blow dryer isn't great, either. So what's a girl to do?
The best way to dry your hair is to let it air-dry until it's damp--then blow dry it on the coolest setting.
Your shiny, healthy head of hair will thank you!
