    Default How Often Do You Blow Dry?

    Hi, I am guilty of frequently blow drying my hair to achieve straightness. How often do you blow dry?

    Neverrrrrrrrr

    I plan my washes carefully so that I never need to blow dry.

    I always blow dry on low to get to the non-dropping stage. Then I air-dry until it's just barely damp, when I use the cold shot to make it extra shiny (^(oo)^)v

    Never. If I have to damp bun, I damp bun, but I know what heat and wind do to my hair.

    I never blow dry. Even when it was long, I only blow dried like every few months if I was desperate. It feels nicer when it dries naturally from my experience. I shower at night usually...my hair dries enough for me to not have an issue with a wet head when I sleep.

    I never do because not only does it give me horrid split ends but it makes it poofier as well.

    Usually never but today I did because I had to go to work and my hair was still damp, but I just used it on the cool setting so I doubt I did any damage. So I guess the answer to your question is maybe 2 times a year.

    Hmm, it averages out to maybe... 4 times a year or so? Every few months I'll get curious to see it straight.

    Before LHC I did it once a week, but now that I've started damp bunning it most of the time after a wash, I'm just too lazy to spend an hour with the dryer. My wave pattern has benefited a lot from giving up heat.

    Never. I haven't owned one for about seven years? Something like that.

    I plan my washes so I'll have time to air-dry, and damp bun if I have to.

    I'll admit I'm also a guilty party, so don't feel bad. It takes some time to figure out how *not* to do it. I blow dry on cool. Showers at night just don't work for me at this length (touching shoulders) because I get super weird flat and bumpy spots. I know, once it gets longer, I'll be able to air dry in various buns/braids. I hate the awkward phase.
