Usually I blow dry my hair because I like the look of straight hair. But now with summer almost here the thought of turning the blow dryer is such a turn off! After a few weeks of no blowing drying my hair is usually softer but oh soooo curly! So what do you prefer?

i prefer blow drying!! it makes my hair soft and gives me nice waves... then i dont have to straighten it or do much with it unless i want it super straight or curly. but my hair is at the perfect length. so i can blow dry and get the cute waves... lol thats long enough now...

hey there britt. . . funny but i blow dry my hair so that i can make it straight . and I blow dry and i blow dry and then i blow dry some more. . and if that isnt enough i then take a hot iron to get that finished look .. a lot of work but when the weather cooperates it is the only way I feel pretty! Its amazing how hair can make a person .. if you know what I mean. . .like have you ever gotten a bad haircut and nothing looks right. . lord have mercy .. right before my high school graduation pictures were taken .. for some stupid reason I went and had my hair cut. . i swear I got the Bozo the clown cut.. and I still shutter when I see that pic. . . it is no wonder I hate to go and have it cut. . actuallly I am thinking of moving to italy just so I can go to mydianait's hair dresser :)

Depends on the weather outside. If it is cold, and snowing, I usually blow dry my hair. As the spring and summer time come around though, I air dry it. I don't mind the curls, makes my hair look fuller. :)

I used to, but I started using John Frida Friz Eaze before I blow dry it and it always seemed to work great for me.

Strictly low maintenance here. I don't remember the last time I had my hair blow dried. Granted I'm a guy. I used to actually own a blow drying. My wife uses one regularly. She likes her hair all dry before she ever comes out of the bathroom. My wife gets to help my daughter regularly. That when the hair dryer gets a real work out. My daughter has beautiful long hair.

I prefer air dry. If it so happens that I have a late shower in the evening just before going to bed, I always blow dry so that I can go to sleep soon. To air dry is more natural and it is better for the protection of the hair.

I would rather not have to use the blow dryer but if I let my hair air dry it is naturally wavy and I prefer a more straight hair look. If I plan to stay home I usually do not use the blow dryer to lessen the damage to my hair. I agree with you that when you blow dry it makes your hair softer as well.

Blow drying yields better results but I never have time to blow dry my hair so I end up letting it dry by air!

Messy Hair - a girl with messy brown hair
I almost never blow dry my hair. I like to let it do it's own thing. I think I might be too lazy to consider doing that much maintenance on it.

sly another lucky one I see! I think the more I keep reading these posts the more I am convincing myself it is time to let go of the blow dryer and hot iron . .well maybe just for the summer. . come the fall and the hair weather here in the northeast is perfect for the way I like to do my hair .. even if it takes more time than I want to give it. The final outcome is worth it! happy lotting to you

me too zack but the time it takes I could be doing so many other things. In winter I dont mind cause what else is there to do plus the weather agrees with that style, but come the summer and the humidity! It may look good for a minute but then the dampness in the air just ruins it! thanks for sharing . . happy lotting!
