Do you always blow dry your hair?
There’s no problem with that as long as you do it the right way to prevent hair falling and thinning.
Here are 11 blow drying mistakes that are destroying your hair.
Mistake #1: Blow-drying hair when it’s sopping wet
One of the biggest misconceptions is that you should start drying your hair when it’s fresh out of the shower. But in reality, your hair is most prone to damage when wet. And the longer heat is applied, the more damage it causes, so your goal is to minimize the amount of heat exposure. Hair should be 50 to 60 percent dry before you start blow-drying. “Get as much moisture out as you can with a towel, and let your hair air-dry for a 10 to 15 minutes after you towel-dry,” advises Becca Sible, educator for amika.
