Hair Drying Time- Cutting it in Half

Hair Drying Time- Cutting it in Half
Tonya McKay Becker of writes:

Taking great care of our delicate curly tresses seems to introduce the occasional (okay, frequent) dilemma into our daily routines. One particular problem is that of sopping wet hair and what to do with it. It is possible to protect your hair from thermal damage by avoiding the use of hair dryers, and frizz can be minimized by avoiding the use of regular bath towels as turbans. But, air drying thick, curly hair that is saturated with water and product can literally take hours, which is neither convenient nor stylish. A wet head really doesn’t lend itself to a professional persona either. So, as we endeavor to maintain our professional credibility, avoid catching colds (if you believe that particular old adage), and have the best looking locks we can, sometimes we find ourselves looking for methods or products which might be of assistance to us in reducing the drying time of our hair.

    @shamigreen! Yes try it! I did this method last night and my hair turned out so straight and soft. I know some people have thicker hair but it should work for most. Good luck!

    I have to admit, I used a Sham-wow towel to sop up the water from my hair after washing and I love it. I noticed a major difference in the detangling and drying process versus using a regular towel.

    Brianna! that's an excellent idea… and much more time friendly too. I will definitley give it a try.

    How much do the gloves cost?

    When I straighten my hair…instead of blowdrying…
    .I braid my hair in 15 braids with a heat protectant and setting lotion
    .let it dry for a couple of hours
    .and flat iron my hair

    This method not only cut back on the amount of heat I used, but I have doubled the amount of length I retain in a months time.
