Why Air-Dry Your Hair in Fall?

Fall is a time to ditch blow dryers and heat styling techniques and change our hair care routine. Air-drying allows our wet hair to dry up naturally and bounce with shine and health. If your tresses are brittle or damaged, air-drying prevents any further injury and helps to lock in as much moisture as your hair requires to look soft and well-nourished. Give this technique a try and notice the big difference it makes to your mane as compared to blow-drying your hair.

How to Air-Dry Your Hair in Fall?

Air-drying sounds simple, doesn't it? You might think that simply wearing your hair loose and allowing it to dry (in the air) will do the job. But there's much more to it than meets the eye.

We understand that you don't want to cause any harm to your precious locks in the trickiest of all seasons. Follow these steps to air-dry your hair in fall:

Step One

Shake excess water out of your strands by flipping your hair up and down a couple of times. As you do this, gently rake up your roots with your fingers to allow air circulation and speed up the drying time.

Step Two

Work in a tiny amount of strand smoother serum spray through the lengths of your tresses and massage your hair gently to spread the product evenly. The serum will not only detangle your hair but will also make it smooth and shiny. If you have dry, frizzy hair, replace the strand smoother spray with a frizz vanishing cream.

Step Three

Wrap your hair in a t-shirt (yes, you heard that right!). Most towels are made of rough fiber that rubs against your hair shafts and makes them coarse and brittle. A t-shirt only soaks up excess water and leaves you with soft, silky smooth hair.

If you wash your hair at night, keep your hair wrapped up in the t-shirt overnight. Not only will your hair be absolutely dry in the morning but will also develop a beautiful, ready-to-sport wavy texture!

However, if you shamopoo your hair in the morning, right before stepping out for work, keep your hair wrapped up in a t-shirt for about 15-20 minutes and move straight on to Step Four.

Step Four

After unwrapping your hair, use a wide-toothed comb to brush your hair, starting from the ends and moving your way up to detangle your tresses. Whether or not your hair is 100% dry, a wide toothed comb will glide through your mane easily and detangle all knots in the gentlest manner possible, without breaking your strands.

Step Five

Flip your hair a couple of times and scrunch it with your fingers to make it look fluffy and gorgeously textured.

Following the above-mentioned steps will ensure that you dry and style your hair in a natural manner, without using any heat styling tools or products. After all, your hair is your crowning glory and deserves a little TLC!
