During the summer, air drying your hair is a lot easier to do, mainly because you won't get pneumonia if you step outside with damp tresses, but how can you maximize your air drying technique for flawless results? Well, putting your hair up while it dries and essentially leaving it to style itself works wonders, and it's the perfect approach to summer styling for the lazy girls among you! Check out three of our favorite air drying techniques below.
Braiding damp hair protects it from frizz and flyaways while it dries, and encourages loose, textured waves to form- the bigger the braid, the bigger the waves will be. For the best results, apply a texturizing product like Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray before braiding.
2. Ballerina bun
Pinning your hair into a bun while it's still damp will create loose, tumbling waves that look totally natural. Try not to pin the bun too tightly so the hair in the middle can dry properly, and make sure you keep the placement fairly low to avoid any awkward kinks. Once the hair is dry, apply a finishing spray like Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray to get a glossy sheen.
3. Headband updo
After looping damp hair around a headband until it's all up, you'll get loose, tousled waves that look like they've been done with a curling iron. The headband placement at the back is perfect for creating romantic waves that start at ear level. After shaking your hair out once it's dry, scrunch a flexible hold product such as Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum through the ends to add texture.
