I grew up vigorously rubbing my hair with my towel after taking a shower. That was how I had seen others dry their hair quickly and I had heard that this “lifted” the roots of your hair and made it more “voluminous”!
Do you ever look back on things like this and wonder, “What was I thinking?!”
The lesson learned?
My hair definitely didn’t get dry any more quickly and I never saw the “volume” I had been promised. But what did my hair get?
A lot of split ends!
“Scrubbing” your hair with your towel, or “towel-drying” your hair, will result in the breakage of your hair from all of the friction and cause a lot of frizz.
And no amount of ant-frizz serum can help you when you’ve got split ends all over your head and little broken bits of hair sticking straight up from your scalp!
The best way to dry your hair without damaging it is to pat your hair dry with your towel. Or, lightly wrap the towel around your head for a few minutes to soak up any access water.
Looking for a shortcut? None here! You might have to set the alarm clock 10 minutes earlier if you want to maintain that gorgeous head of hair of yours!
