How To Use A Hair Dryer Without Damaging Hair?

Nov. 24, 2021

Many people are familiar with the routine of washing, blow-drying, and styling their hair. Although hair will eventually dry on its own if given enough time, most people will use a hairdryer to speed up the process. While science may have proven the link between wet hair and colds, it's still no fun to sit with a head full of wet hair, especially in winter.


Hairdryers, also known as blow dryers, were first sold in the 1920s. At first, they were dangerous to use - hundreds of people would be electrocuted when they dropped them into sinks and baths filled with water.


How you should blow dry your hair will vary greatly depending on your hair type, your preferences, and the way you want to style it. There is no right or wrong way. Whichever method you choose, the following articles will guide you through the best ways to blow dry your hair in the least damaging way.


Is blow-drying your hair bad?

Proper blow-drying will not harm your hair. However, heating your hair when it is already dry can cause brittleness, breakage, dullness, and dryness. The secret to safe blow-drying is good timing and the correct use of tools and products.


Follow these simple steps to blow dry your hair quickly and safely, while getting beautiful results.

How do I use a hairdryer without damaging my hair?

Always prepare your hair with a heat protection spray or damage prevention primer.

If you use paddles and/or round brushes for styling, choose ones made of soft, pliable plastic and use them gently. Rough tugging and brushing can cause damage.

Keep the hairdryer about 6 inches away from the hair. Dry the back and sides of the head first, then work towards the top and front of the head.

Start with high speed and heat and gradually reduce the heat as the hair starts to dry. This will help you to avoid over-drying and damaging your hair. Ideally, it is best for your hair if you leave it slightly damp or "just dry".

If you want the heat to spread over a larger area, use a diffuser attachment. The wider the attachment, the more heat is distributed. However, if you want to dry your hair quickly, do not use the attachment.

To add volume and bulk, try turning your hair upside down after blow-drying. Bend down and let your hair hang down on the floor. Brush or comb it gently in this direction, followed by the dryer. This will give your hair more bounce and elasticity and reduce the likelihood of tangles.


Air-drying or blow-drying is not good for healthy hair. The best way to keep your hair sweet and healthy is to combine the two. It is recommended that you allow your hair to air dry 70-80% and then blow dry until completely dry. This method will keep your hair healthy and give your hair a very smooth and sleek look.
