Do You Use a Blow Dryer?

Do You Use a Blow Dryer?

Today, a friend of mine confessed that she has only been using a blow dryer for the last one of her 30 years. Although I am often pressed for time in the morning, I try to do a little heat styling to tame my hair, even if the results aren't perfect. Since I often notice many wet-haired ladies and gents on my morning train ride, I'm wondering how many of you use a blow dryer after washing?

Very occasionally - only when dressing up for a party or if it's cold out. But I don't work, so I like to let it dry naturally.

I blow dry my hair EVERY time I wash it. Head down, medium then cold air and it gives me volume :) for 20min :( I have fine and straight hair. I don't like to let it dry on its own. I don't like the feeling of wet hair and wet scalp slooowwwwly drying. (I don't mind it at the beach though)

My hair is softer and less frizzy if I don't blow dry it.

I actually use to do both. I would shower at night, let it air dry and then in the morning style it with a blow dryer. I still shower at night and let it air dry, but now I flat iron it in the morning. I like the flat iron waaayyy more.

Honestly, I just CAN'T blow-dry it. I have wild locks and my hair looks very much afro-like when I blow-dry it so it's a completely no-no for me

No, I air dry. I'm too lazy to blow dry all of my hair and I usually just take a shower befor I go to sleep anyway, so I don't go to college with wet hair most of the time :)

Depends. In the spring/summer I almost never use my blow dryer, I just wake up earlier and let my hair air dry. However once fall/winter arrives, I blow dry and style it more. My hair is straight until mid-shaft then it has a wave. However itn't always consistant looking so I need to use my round brush to style it. Thankfully my T3 dryer and brush do not damage my hair like my old Revlon dryer did,lol.

I use a blow dryer every time. My hair is hip-length and thick (even with layers), and it will stay wet for hours if I don't use a dryer. In a bun or braid, it'll take over a day to dry. The only time I don't use a dryer is in the summer, because I don't have AC and it's just too hot.

I have to blow dry my hair everyday because if I don't it will be one frizzy wavy mess! My hair is very thick and pretty long too, so it is a major pain. If I have a day where I can just stay in the house though I let it air dry.

Never, unless I go to a salon. It just looks like crap/bird's nest if I do it myself.

My hair is so thick and dry that I wash and blow dry my hair once a week, maybe twice.

I usually don't blow dry. I wash my hair at night and let it air dry before I go to bed. I'm pretty lucky since my hair dries straight and looks good. I only blow dry if I have to rush out of the house with my hair wet, or if it's a special day where I want extra volume.

i have no choice. i HAVE to blow dry my hair or else it looks flat and just unpolished. I have a lot of thin hair that is straight and it just looks unkept if i don't blow dry it. so for those who don't have to blow dry, i envy you!!

I used to but since going natural I haven't picked up a blow dryer in over a year and my hair is much better because of it. So no more hair dryers for me.

I think I got at Bath and Body Works or H2O or something forever ago, g1amourpuss, but you can probably find them in drugstores now as well. They're the thin, light, super-absorbent hair towels. They work great, because my hair's almost waist-length and holds water really well for some reason; if I just dry with a normal towel, I end up dripping all over myself for the next three hours.

lizbear317 ..ditto on the wet work hair. hate that, ha ha. rocketgirl - the night braid is such a great idea! I forgot my mom used to fix my hair that way when I was a kid. Next time I grow my hair out again I will do that instead. Jude - what's this microfiber towel you're using hon? I need one!

Nope. Even with a diffuser they blow my curls apart. When working I'll wash my hair early the evening before. Takes at least 3 hours for my hair to even think about air drying, and if it's damp out it just won't.

Oh, I'm so awful to my hair - but I try to make it up to it. Yes, I do blowdry it.. Try to do it on a cool setting if I'm not in a hurry. Since my hair is naturally dry I can get away with washing it every other day or so. And I TRY to wash it at night ..let it dry naturally.. so I won't have to dry it during the morning when I get ready for work. And then I curl my hair at least every other day.. but when I get time I put those silly pink foam rollers in my hair that way it won't be so bad for my hair. I like the way they make my curls look best, but with a toddler I'm usually exhausted by the time she goes to bed... so I only get to use them like once or twice a week. ..also hot oil and deep condition my hair once to twice a week. But yeah, I use the hair dryer about 3 times a week max. And I hate it.
