    How long does it take for your hair to dry naturally without a blowdryer? For me, it all depends on the type of water that is on my hair. If I've been swimming in the ocean, my hair can literally be dry in like just 10 minutes, the salt content really dries out my hair! If I've been at the pool, well I shower right after but I notice even after I shower off the chlorine still dries my hair a lot faster than on days I have not been swimming. I will always do a CO after a swim and also every night. It takes about half an hour for my hair to stop dripping, then it will stay damp for over 3 hours before it fully dries, so it takes about 4 hours total to dry my hair.

    In the winter, it could take actually over 5 hours for my hair to dry naturally. This is the season where I will actually blow dry just enough so that I speed up the process. I will almost always air-dry during the spring and summer unless I'm purposely blow styling my hair.

    I'd say about an hour for me -- sometimes more, sometimes less, depending upon how hot or cold a day it is.

    To naturally air dry thoroughly, it takes my hair 4 hours. It's worth the time though, because it's so much healthier.

    I haven't measured the time accurately, but I'd say it is between 2 and 3 hours. It feels like forever!

    between 2-3 hours. If it's really humid, longer.

    My hair is extremely thick, so it takes >5 hours. The front pieces dry within half an hour, the roots within approx. one and half hours, the majority of the length and tips within 3 hours... but there is this annoying bit of hair at the back of my head that can take overnight, and then a few hours to get completely dry. weird.

    Once I tried wearing it in a bun after washing, and took out the bun after two days. The inner layers of my hair were still damp. Very weird.

    It takes about 1-2 hours for me to naturally dry my hair as they are fine-medium thick.

    It takes about an hour to an hour and a half. When it is hot out, less, in the winter, more.

    In the house, with no assistance, it takes every bit of 3 hours.

    Out in the sun, it takes about 2.

    This is why I rarely air dry my hair. I usually damp bun.
