You may not know this, but there is a high chance that you are unleashing a world of damage on your hair while brushing and drying it. So, here’s a few things you need to keep in mind once you step out of the shower:
- Use a microfiber towel: Pre-dry your hair with a microfiber towel once you step out of the shower. Avoid using a terrycloth towel as it can tangle your hair too much, increase frizz, and cause it to break.
- Avoid blow drying: The heat from blow dryers damage your hair just as much as heat styling tools do. So it’s best to apply a leave-in conditioner all over your damp hair and let it air-dry.
- Blow dry only after your hair is partially dry: If you absolutely cannot stop using a blow dryer, then just make this one simple adjustment. Blowdry your hair once it is 70% dry. This gives time for your hair cuticle to close up and will reduce the heat damage.
