do you blow dry every time you wash your hair?

even if you have no plans for the day? if so what do you use to keep your hair from getting damaged and does it seem to work?

  • I don't blow dry my hair everyday. I used to, but it was so dry and brittle that I finally started letting it air dry if I'm not leaving the house, and since I stay home there are plenty of days that I can let it dry naturally. My husband of 22 years didn't even know I had naturally curly hair until I started letting it dry naturally!!

    anyway, my hair is healthier, and the bonus I save a lot of time drying and then curling!!!

  • I used to always make sure my hair was dry. I would just use a good conditioner. Once a week when I knew I would just be at home all day I wouldnt wash my hair. It keeps it soft.

  • I do and I seriously need to do a treatment to my hair. I like silk drops, they help somewhat and there's a spray I use to get that was for flat ironing your hair that was good, but I am trying to not do that much anymore.

  • Yes, I do. I use Paul Mitchell products on my hair and I don't use a real hot setting on my blow dryer.

  • I never blow dry my hair, it takes about 45 minutes to dry it because it's long and thick, it's just not worth it to me.

  • I blow dry and straighten almost every day. Once in a great while i'll skip a day washing it, but 99.9% of the time, if i wash it i blow dry and straighten too. Somehow i still have really healthy hair though. Every stylist i've been to has commented on how healthy it is, especially since i do so much "damage" to it on a daily basis.
