Does your hair turn frizzy after drying, despite using a conditioner? Is there a way of keeping the frizzies away from your hair? Let's get into the blog to discover how you can tackle this issue.

Air-drying is the natural method of drying your hair with the use of heating tools like a dryer. It is the safest as it spares your hair from the damaging effects of heat. Even after including so many hair growth products in your hair care routine, your hair still looks dull and frizzy. Then, it might be time to revisit your air-drying technique.

Take your hair on the journey from lifeless to lively by adding a good air-drying routine to your life. It is not just about letting your hair dry on its own but a process that can enhance the beauty of your hair.

When purchasing any hair growth product, keep in mind your hair type. Types of hair are: curly, wavy, and straight. Be it any, each type requires a unique approach to air drying. Let's explore secrets for achieving the best-air-dried method for your specific hair.

Confused if you have straight hair or not? If your hair is straighter than a ruler even after it is dry, then congratulations, you have got straight hair. Some steps to achieve enhanced natural straight hair are:

  1. Your hair is generally in a very fragile state when wet, so in order to soak the extra water, gently pat your hair with a microfiber towel.
  2. Apply a leave-in conditioner to keep your hair moisturized. Focus on the ends and lengths to avoid the roots becoming too weighed.
  3. Thin hair is more prone to breakage when wet, so avoid aggressively combing at that time. If urgent, use a wide-toothed comb.
  4. Let it air dry naturally. Avoid using any heating tools as they can lead to frizzy hair.
  5. Use light styling products like mousse to give the volume.
  6. After your hair is dry, gently fluff the roots with your fingers to get extra volume.
