Use a good hydrating conditioner
If you don’t use a hair conditioner, think about doing so. When you start airdrying your hair, you will need to keep it hydrated. But, be sure that it doesn’t grease or weight your hair down.
Blot instead of rub
Never rub your hair with a towel. Keep in mind that the hair is most vulnerable when wet. if you are being too harsh, you might damage or break the hairs. This can make it frizzy too, so make sure that you avoid it. Instead, blot the hair gently and wrap it.
Avoid rough towels
The usual towels have a very rough texture. As we already mentioned your hair is too vulnerable when dry, so you shouldn’t use a rough towel on the fragile hairs. You can get a special microfiber towel that has a soft surface. It won’t be too harsh but remember still not to rub the hair. Or, you can go for a simple alternative. Use an old cotton T-shirt to wrap your hair after washing. It will absorb the excess water, without damaging your hair.
To get a little bit of texture and gentle waves, you should put your hair in a bun when it is slightly damp. Create a loose low bun and let your hair dry. When you release it, your hair will be wavy.
Use oil for the ends
If your ends appear dry and untamed, you should use natural oil. This will hydrate the dry ends and make them look better. You can use argan oil, as it is so nourishing.
Lift the roots
When you don’t blowdry your hair, it is very likely that you will notice less volume. To make it up, use a volumizing mousse. You can also tease your hair at the roots, or give it texture with dry shampoo.
