Blow dry or let dry naturally? Which is better for hair health?

Fénovať či nechať prirodzene uschnúť? Čo je lepšie pre zdravie vlasov?

To blow dry or not to blow dry? That's the question. Each of us wants to have beautiful, shiny and, above all, healthy hair, and in order for that to happen, it is necessary to take care of it thoroughly. We've sifted through the many claims about how blow-drying destroys your hair and bring you a different perspective that will change your approach to drying your hair.

Natural hair drying

When we talk about natural hair drying, we mean when you get out of the shower, wrap your hair in a towel for a while, then loosen your hair and let it air dry without using a hair dryer or other products. At first glance, it is a very comfortable and easy hair drying method. So what are its positives and negatives?

Advantages

I guess the biggest benefit of natural hair drying is that this method helps the hair retain its natural structure. Since you don't use any heat treatment, the hair is less susceptible to heat damage and has less chance of being dry and frizzy.

Disadvantages

On the other hand, naturally dried hair does not have a fully closed cuticle, it is dull and lifeless. In addition to the fact that the hair lacks smoothness and shine, the scalp also suffers. The big disadvantage of air drying is that your scalp is in a very humid environment for hours. This could disrupt her health and cause an overgrowth of bacteria due to excessive moisture, which can lead to increased dandruff, hair loss or other trichological diagnoses.

Another factor is the fragility of the hair. You must have heard that wet hair is very prone to breakage. If you have long hair and leave it loose for a long time, you put stress on the hair cuticle and this can lead to hair breakage.

Hair blow drying

You already know the positives and negatives of natural hair drying. Let's take a look together at how the hair dryer affects the health of your hair.

Advantages

Itching, dandruff, quickly greasy hair or dry skin are precisely the result of poor scalp care. A huge advantage of blow-drying is that it dries the scalp and does not leave it in a humid environment for long hours, which significantly benefits its health. Healthy and strong hair can only grow from a healthy scalp.

Blow-drying also accompanied by quality products protects your hair from damage and gives it strength, volume and shine. But what about heat treatment? Doesn't it hurt?

Disadvantages

Harmful and harmless. How you approach the process is very important. Blow drying can damage your hair if:

  • you are using a low-quality hair dryer
  • you don't use any thermal protection product
  • you have a bad blow-drying technique

If you manage to avoid these points, there is nothing to fear and in the end you will see that blow-drying does not have to destroy your hair and can ensure the health of your scalp.
