Unless you’re Mariah Carey, nobody’s got the time or cash for a full-on blowout every time they wash their hair. And even if you did, all that heat styling can sometimes stress your hair out to the point that it gets dry, brittle, and even breaks off, which defeats the whole purpose.
It’s not always easy to air dry your hair in the winter months, especially if you wash your hair in the AM and don’t want to risk a frozen mane. However, summer – with all those pool days and beach vacays – lends itself to lowkey, no-fuss, air-dried hair, plus it’s way better for your hair. To help you master the art of air drying your hair to glorious perfection, we asked a couple of celebrity stylists to share their best tips.
1. Cocktail Your Products
You don’t have to choose just one product or the other. Sometimes it’s way more fun – and way better of an air-drying experience – to combine a few goodies. Ivan Rodriguez, a celebrity hairstylist and the hairstyling ambassador for BioSilk, says, “Mixing products together can create the perfect foundation. I like to mix a liquid gel and leave-in treatment for control and a light hold straight out of the shower.” Try BioSilk Silk Therapy Glazing Gel, and Kristin Ess Weightless Shine Air Dry Crème. About a dime’s worth of each is all you need.
Biosilk® Therapy Glazing Gel is alight-hold sculpting gel that distributes evenly to give body and shine without stickiness. Ideal for roller settings, blow drying and wet looks.
