I have a love-hate relationship with my blowdryer. I love the feel of having freshly blow dried hair that has the shine and bounce of a good round-brush session, but I hate how long it takes to get it all dry. And if it isn’t completely dry, the style that I just spent so much time and energy on will be completely frizzed up in a matter of minutes. I think anyone who uses a blow dryer on a regular basis understands the annoyance of long dry-times.
If you’re looking to minimize the amount of time you spend drying your hair, then these tips are for you.
1. Invest in a powerful blow dryer. Typically, a dryer that falls in the 1300 to 1875-watt range is suitable for everyday home use. It will provide you with enough power to speed up your drying process, and will also allow you to turn down the heat a bit to protect your hair from heat damage. Try pre-drying your hair a bit first (focus on getting the roots and back first), and then snap on the concentrator attachment to use while round-brushing to help you get sleeker results.
2. Get a keratin treatment. Keratin treatments make your hair feel smooth and soft, and it makes styling so much easier because you’re really just focusing on getting it dry without having to battle so much frizz. You’ll be amazed at how quickly you breeze through your styling routine. If properly cared for, your treatment can last for months before you need it touched up.
3. Find the right brush. I am a huge fan of ceramic round brushes for quick drying that yields beautiful, soft results. The size of the brush will depend on the length of your hair; your stylist will be able to give you guidance when determining the best brush for your hair length and type.
