Do you use a dryer?

I do not use dryer, because it can cause unnecessary damage to the hair. What I do is before combing I pat it down from front to back, do not rub it widly at random. I just pat enough to absorb all the drips. Then wrap the towel around the head and leave it there for about 10 minutes. Then take off the towel and comb the hair. I generally use a wide-toothed comb with rounded edges. I never brush wet hair. Is it right way of combing?

hello ronimas, i don't use dryer for the same reason as you have said.but sometimes when i am in a hurry and i have wet hair i have to use it as i can't go out with my hair wet.and whatever you said is absolutely right.but i think you shouldn't wrap a towel into wet hair.you should leave it free.just pat the hair to absorb the excess water so that it stops dripping.and then leave it to dry by its own.when your hair is half wet and half dry,you can comb it gently. and its true you should never brush wet hair nor even try to put your hands into the tangles.they will just worsen and you will lose a lot of hair.

I cannot stand the heat so I never use a hair dryer after I have washed my own hair. At the hairdresser however, or if my sister does my hair for me, I let them use the hair dryer because otherwise, it might take forever. I try to get them to use rollers on my hair for the dryer so at least I get a nice curl out of it afterwards! It is a very good idea to refrain from brushing wet hair, Ronimas, because otherwise you could cause more breakage as your hair would be weaker when wet...or so it has been told. I never brush my hair when it is wet either. I also use a wide-toothed comb with rounded edges. :)

I have a hairdryer but I hardly ever use it. I have not used it in months. Now that the weather is turning colder I will use it more often. I usually let my hair air dry. I squeeze off the extra water when I get out of the shower and come through it and leave it be.

I only use mine if it is extremely cold out, and i have to go out. I have very thick hair so it takes forever to dry, once in a while I need the drier just to help it dry a little faster.

Lucky you for the ones who have knotty hair. Who can't part it without pain or breakage. I am sure it's best to have a dryer.
