Why So Long To Dry ?!?!?

I'm sure you're wondering what exactly takes so long to dry... the answer is hair. Natural, Thick, and Curly hair take SO long too dry.


Short story: Your hairstyle failed because it was NOT DRY!


Now seriously, how many times have you put in effort on a hairstyle and it just failed because it was still damp? The TLC, the smell good products, the perfect technique and it still FAILED. 


If you can't love me at my twists, you don't deserve me at my twist out. Ok? Ok.

 


After a few years of trial and error I've finally come across a few quick fixes:



THE QUICK FIX:


1. Try Soaking up the extra water


This is one of the biggest tips simply because adding products on top of soaking wet hair will prolong the drying process. Especially if you're heavy-handed with products - expect your hair to try in 2-3 business days. A cotton t-shirt or a microfiber towel will do.

2. Blot each section after applying the products


Yeah, I said it, blot those sections. A lot of times we apply more product than we actually need. I love to apply my products in layers. Specifically a leave-in, cream-based products, and a gel or foaming mousse. This tip alone has helped my hairstyles dry A LOT faster by simply taking my t-shirt or microfiber towel to blot each section.



3. Invest in a Hooded Dryer - Yes it’s safe because it is indirect heat. 


You want the key remedy - sit under the dryer. Depending on the thickness and length of your hair sitting under the dryer for 1-2hrs will ensure your hairstyle will be DRY.
