After washing and conditioning your hair, you will want to dry it. The best way to dry hair is to pat it with a T-shirt or microfiber towel and then let it dry naturally (that is if you don’t mind the time it will take to dry and how it will look when dry).
The alternative to using T-shirt or microfiber towel is to use a dryer. However, you do not want to overuse the dryer because doing that will deprive your hair of moisture (from washing and conditioning session) leaving it dry, dull and brittle. You therefore have to know how to use it quickly and safely.
After washing and conditioning do not rub your head with a towel vigorously because this will break the hair, and cause frizzing. Instead wrap your hair with a cotton T-shirt or microfiber towel to absorb excess water while preventing your hair from frizzing without disrupting the natural curl pattern.
Dry hair with Hair dryer/Blow dryer
Your dryer should be held 6 inches away from the hair. Start to dry your hair from the back and sides of your head first then work towards the crown and front. Use high temperature and speed, but when your hair begins to dry reduce the heat slowly. Blow dry in the direction of the hair and finish with a cold blast of hair to get shiny dry hair.
The Tricky part
When your hair is nearly dry turn down the heat and reduce the speed. You have to be very observant here because it is at this point that most of the damage takes place. To dry hair from wet to damp does not cause damage but drying damp hair to dry is damaging to the hair. Therefore, your hair should be left damp but if you need it totally dry then you need to stop blow drying at the right time because the extra time you use in drying your hair could reduce the moisture content in the hair cells and lead to dullness, breakage, brittleness and split ends.
