Do you blow dry your hair after taking a bath?

I dont blow dry my hair after taking a bath. I just let it dry by itself. I believe that too much heat from the hair dryer or heat from the sun will damage our hair. Split ends is the common effect when hair is damaged. Except when I was in Canada with cold weather. But still I make sure that my hair is not too wet when I used the hair dryer, I drained the water using my towel. I noticed that canadians dont go out with wet hair even in spring and summer which is the exact opposite of me. I can see that I was the only one walking with wet hair look many times lol. How about you mylotters, do you blow dry your hair after taking a bath?

nope, i never blow my hair. funny , but i do not even comb my hair when it is wet. sometimes it just dries when i am in the car, and then i just comb before going out of the car . i noticed that it has hair falls when i comb it while wet.

yes its not adviceable too to comb hair while wet because it may result to more hair fall.

I pretty much always blow dry my hair. And by saying that it will damage your hair you are mistaken. It is how you are blow drying your hair. If it is done properly there is little to no damage at all. I go every 3 month to get a little trim just to keep it maintained but I truly really haven't damaged my hair too much at all. I have done everything imagineable to it and my hair is very healthy as my hairdresser tells me all the time. Tips for blow drying your hair the right way: Wash your hair (perferably one that moisturizes your scalp (therefore providing less damage to your hair and scalp) Towel off your hair slightly, just enough to stop the dripping Seperate your hair into sections Start blow drying at the top/roots about six inches from your scalp Work your way down and remember to move the blow dryer around again so nothing burns Leave your hair a little bit damp Finish with a blast of cold air to lock in shine.

I dont blow dry my hair after taking a bath because I dont have blow drier..hehe! I agree what you said about too much heat can make your hair dry. I used to have a very shiny hair when I was in high school but when I was in college I started to blow dry my hair and it didn't give me very good results. My hair is a bit dry now so I use coconut milk to regain the usual shine and health it use to have. Have you ever tried using that? I think it is effective in many ways.=)

hi maria! Nope. Same here!lolz I go out with wet hair. haha! i don't even comb my hair sometimes...lolz I have my hair "rebonded" a month ago and I really don't comb my hair very often. I don't get to blow dry my hair. I find it time consuming and it can also damage my hair.

My habit is also same like you leave the hair for dry itself not use hair dryer. I dont like it because I know if regular use means hair may be damage. But only in emergency like in marriage feel necessary then use it.

i do not too!!!!! i have done following this way that let it dry without any heat wind for 7years. and the texure of my hair get better and better.but sometimes i have a urgent situation such as too tired and want to sleep immediately,i will choose to blow my hair. it is said that if you use the heat wind which can be control at 57C,your hair will not be hurted.

hi there maria. i dont pay much more attention on my hair. im lucky to have long straight hair. sometimes specially on rush hour i just tied up my hair w/out combing it! i dont have any blow dry at home. my hair is really less maintenance :) but once in a while i pampered my hair by putting reach conditioner so it will stay strong and shine. :)

I blow dried my hair way back when I was still in high school since my hair was super thick and hard to manage on its own without blow drying it. But now, I do not anymore since I have my hair straight, nice and silky as it is. I only let my hair dry with an electric fan or the aircon but other than that I leave it as it is.

I don't blow dry my hair. My hair is not too long, so it will dry nicely if I just use towel and then let dry by itself. I use dryer only if I have to leave soon after showering, so I need my hair to dry up before going outside, but such situations are quite rare for me.

In the past I wouldn't blow my hair after taking a bath because I thought it was harmful for my hair. Today my hair grows long and it is inconvenient for me to have wet hair after bath. So I have to blow my hair to make it dry soon. I love China

I almost never blow dry my hair after a bath. The wet look becomes me. hehe. :) Since it's hot here, it doesn't take too long to get my hair dry without any intervention. There was a time when I would iron my hair though, just because it looks more kept that way. But sometimes i feel like it's a waste of time and I'd rather sleep 15 more minutes than have to do it. :)

I don't have enough time to let my hair dry at home as I have long hair, and it's too cold now to go out with my hair wet without getting a cold, so I always blow dry my hair after bathing/showering.

I didn't blow dry my hair when it was short. Because it didn't take much time to dry naturally. I have long hair now and I also wash it every morning. So I have to blow dry it before I go out to office. Actually, using hair dryer everyday is harmful for hair. I find my hair has split ends and dry. So I need to use hair conditioner and hair cream several times a week. Sigh...I really troubled by this.

I blow my hair after taking a bath only if i am going out. So if I'm just staying at home, i don't. like you, i also believe it will damage my hair eventually. I don't want to go outside with my hair wet. I just think it's not good to look at by other people.

I agree with you..blow drying the hair really damages it..I rub my long hair with a towel to make it dry. But i learned that rubbing it with towel also causes damage..I wonder what we should do to make it dry. Anyway taking a walk with wet hair is common here in the Philippines. Just make us look fresh and clean =)

hehe,I used to let my hair dry by itself.But after I enter the university, I began to blow dry my hair. I know it's not good for my hair, but I just have to do so. No one comes out with a wet hair just like canadians. And it is quite uncomfortable walking with a wet hair. What's more, I really heat the cold weather.I'm afraid I will get a cough if I don't use a hair dryer.

As far as I am concernedI seldom dry my hair just like you .Because I think my hair is so short . It is not necessary for me to dry my hair. I just put them into the air by themselves. I think that's OK for me.
