An Everything Guide To Dry Your Hair!

Cinema has made us romanticize wet hair. While it does look amazing on the big screen, one thing they do not show is the harm it causes. So, today, we have taken the responsibility to teach you about wet hair woes and the art of drying it.

Firstly, it’s important to understand that wet hair can wreak havoc on your hair health. It creates an ideal environment for the growth of bacteria and fungus, which causes irritation, dandruff, odour, and damage to your overall hair health. Also, brushing wet hair can make it more susceptible to damage, while styling it with hot tools can cause hair breakage and split ends.

Think about it! If you don’t wash your hair with water, it will automatically reduce the tiresome process of drying your hair. Dry shampoo is formulated to absorb excess oil and refresh your hair without water. While dry shampoo is not an alternative to normal shampoo, it is a great option to refresh your hair in between washes.

2. Pat Dry
