Drying your hair is the foundation for most great hairstyles, from smooth and sleek tresses to light and airy ringlet curls. Unfortunately for most of us, getting all of the moisture out of our hair can be a time consuming and damaging process.These five super easy beauty hacks are ideal for shortening the time it takes to dry your hair, helping you get out the door faster while looking flawless. Blow Dry Hacks 1. Towel Dry (Really, Really, Really) Well One of the worst things you can do for your hair is go straight from soaking wet to blasting dry, hot air onto it. Shaking with a towel until your hair is more "damp" than straight up "wet" will not only save you major drying time, but reduce frizz. 2. Comb It Out Using a wide-toothed comb prior to drying is a gentler way to separate your strands while they are still fragile and damp. Large clumps of wet hair take a lot longer to dry, whether using a hair dryer or letting it dry naturally. 3. Condition Regularly Although it may sound counter intuitive, conditioning actually helps your hair dry faster. Because good conditioner seals moisture into the hair shaft, it also repels water, helping it dry much faster. 4. Squeeze Excess Water Out Wringing your hair is the last thing you want to do when stepping out of the shower, but gently squeezing the excess water out of the hair in a downward motion goes a long way without causing breakage. The more water you can get out of your hair, the less time it will take to towel or air dry.
