But the good news is, you don’t have to forever elope yourself into blow drying your hair every morning!
Yes, you read it right! There are other ways!
And in other ways, we mean ways that are a lot faster than the usual hair drying!
These 5 simple hacks will make your morning routine sweeter and speedier!
Hair Hacks- How to Dry Your Hair Faster
A hair dryer is definitely a woman’s must-have. Not only can the best hair blowers dry your hair, but it can also make it bouncy, full of life, but the annoying noise that dryer produce might be too hard to bear! Here is a list of hair dryers that don’t make an annoying noise and do the job nicely at the same time.
But what if you just don’t have the time to blow dry?
You don’t always have to rely on your hair dryer to get the job done every morning!
So that said, here are five easy ways to dry your hair faster!
1. Dry-your-hair hack number one- be generous with the conditioner!
While most women swear by the moisturizing effects of their hair conditioner, it may actually do
more than that. Some women, on the other hand, often just settle with shampoo to save time.
So, if you’re someone who skips their conditioner, stop doing it!
In fact, conditioning your hair will not just keep the bad hair days at bay, it also helps in speeding up the drying time of your strands!
Well, conditioner is very thin and slick in texture, Once applied to the hair, it doesn’t just seep in moisture into your hair shaft, it also coats every strand with its slickness! And as a result, your hair becomes somewhat “waterproof.”
In simpler words, the conditioner seals in moisture into your strands and keeps the water from deeply penetrating. That said, giving your hair its well-deserved conditioning treat on a daily basis will keep too much water from penetrating into your mane!
More so, if you use high-quality conditioners that are mostly concocted with all natural ingredients!
The end results? A hair that’s healthy, moisturized, and significantly faster to dry!
- Dry-your-hair hack number two- start drying your hair in the shower!
Another way to speed things up a bit when it comes to drying your hair is by starting it in the shower!
How it’s done?
Right after you shampoo and condition your hair, gently squeeze out any excess water from your mane! Keep doing this until there are only very minimal drips of water that come from your hair.
But keep in mind, be gentle! Don’t squeeze in too tight, as wet hair is extra fragile and more prone to breakage.
When done right, this hack will eventually save you some minutes when it’s actually time for you to fully dry your hair up!
3. Dry-your-hair hack number three- pick the right towel!
Did you know that drying your hair with your regular towel may do more harm than good? Yes, that’s absolutely true!
Rubbing your hair against a rough, cotton towel may put it at more risk to frizz and breakage! Because your hair is weakest when wet, it becomes more vulnerable to damages!
Yikes! Plus, you’ll cringe even more once we tell you that your regular cotton towel doesn’t exactly absorb as much water and moisture from your hair. So it doesn’t really speed up your drying routine!
Our hack for this? Throw the cotton towels and switch to microfibre towels!
Microfibre towels aren’t just extra gentle to your hair, they also absorb water and moisture far better than the regular bath towels! The best part? These towels are extra soft and won’t cause your hair to frizz once it’s dry!
Go ahead, don’t hesitate to switch! For sure you’ll be about a few more minutes ahead of getting things done in the morning!
4. Dry-your-hair life hack number four- bring out the cheat sheet!
And by the cheat sheet, we meant to lay down your speciality hair drying products! Wait… what is specialty hair drying products?
While it sounds a little bit too good to be true, there are products in the market that are aimed toward a faster hair drying session!
Aside from your usual blow dryer, there are these so-called “quick dry” sprays! These sprays are formulated to aid your blow dryer as it does its job, and speed up everything in the process!
Another great thing about this hack is that it doesn’t just make blow drying a quicker but it also protects your hair from the heat applied! So not only do you get the job done faster but your hair health is also covered!
And depending on the quality of the quick dry spray, it can speed up your usual hair drying routine by up to 50%!
5. Dry-your-hair life hack number five- brush, brush, and brush!
Did you know that brushing your hair isn’t just meant to detangle your strands after you shower?
Yes, that’s true! Brushing your hair after you shower (assuming that you have squeezed off any excess water from it) is another clever way to speed up hair drying.
How so? Brushing your hair will not only make your hair manageable and softer, but it also preps it very well prior to a blow dry! That said, once you got your hair dryer ready, your hair is more than prepared to absorb all the heat and dry a little faster than it normally would!
And for an even faster way, we highly recommend getting a microfibre brush! Just like the microfibre towel, a microfibre brush will absorb all the excess water and moisture as you run it through your tresses!
This doesn’t just speed up the drying time of your hair, but it also gives your hair that nice, frizz-free look that’s worth a second glance!
