No one wants to leave the house with their hair looking like a mess. However, washing, drying and styling will require an hour of your time. On a busy weekday, you may not have the luxury of time to spend an entire hour fixing your hair.
Blow-drying alone will take you about 20 minutes. But if your hair is sopping wet, then you’ll need another 10 minutes just to get it ready for blow-drying. You just wasted 30 minutes of your precious time.
What if we tell you that there are some things you can do to cut your blow-drying time in half? Yes, it’s possible! Spend less time on your hair and more time on your bed with these tips.
Invest in a good quality dryer
You’ll get a more efficient blowout by using a dryer with at least 1,800 watts. Yes, good quality dryers may be quite expensive, but these types of dryers are more powerful and will get the job done in less time than the ordinary dyers.
Towel-dry with a microfiber towel
Try to squeeze out as much water out of your hair as soon as you step out of the shower. Then, bundle your hair in a microfiber towel and leave it on for about 2 – 5 minutes. This is done to remove excess water before you blow-dry.
Dry your hair in sections
One way to speed up the drying time is to divide your hair into small sections and then smooth it out before drying.
Use the right brush
Believe it or not, your brush could be slowing down your blow-drying time. That said, you might want to switch to a ceramic round-barreled brush. These brushes have fewer bristles, which allows for more airflow. Plus, it conducts heat; thus, reducing your blow-drying time in half. A microfiber brush is also beneficial as it helps soak up even more water as you brush.
