Blow Drying vs Air Drying

I do not have time to blow dry, moreso time to airdry! That is why I usually go out with damp hair :p *gross*

I would try and blow dry my hair next time and see if it makes any difference.

How about you? Do you blow or do you air? ๐Ÿ˜€

How many times haven’t you heard that blow drying can damage your hair and you should let it air dry to avoid drying out your tresses. It is actually a thing that you should decide for yourself.

You can choose to blow dry because this is the only way you can style your hair as you wish, you can choose to air dry because you think it is less damaging for your hair and you also help the environment by reducing the electricity consumption. It should be your decision based on what works for you.

Here are the differences between blow drying and air drying, to help you make the best choice for you:
