There are two types of people in this world.
On one hand, we have the gals who get up early in the morning to perform their detailed morning routine. Their hair gets gently blow-dried and styled to perfection.
On the other hand, we have those who snooze their alarm five times. When they realise how late it is, they madly shower, scrunch their hair in a towel, and race out the door. Which group do you vibe with the most?
When it comes to damaged hair, the best-known culprits are the overuse of hot styling tools and the use of harsh haircare products.
But damage can also be caused by something as simple as how we dry our hair.
Let’s dive into the details for a second. There’s actually a science behind drying our hair properly! Have you heard of the hair’s cuticle? It’s the outside layer of hair strands and is important to the hair's overall appearance.
When the cuticle is damaged, your hair looks dry, frizzy, and dull—probably not the look you’re going for. When a hair cuticle is healthy, it lies flat, and our strands look shiny and feel strong.
The way we dry our hair can damage the hair cuticles, which is why hair can get frizzy or out of control when it’s wet or even slightly damp. The best way to dry your hair isn’t rocket science. It involves just a few easy tweaks that your mane will definitely thank you for.
