Tip #1 – Select Your Hairdryer!

Ultimately you get what you pay for. Is your hairdryer the latest model or something you’ve used forever? Your hairdryer will play a significant role in your hair routine.

Do your research before buying the latest and priciest hair gadget! Foremost, whilst speed is important it’s really not worthy of sacrificing the condition of your hair. Look out for words like ‘ceramic’ and ‘ion technology’. These ought to be central to your choice, so if your existing hairdryer already ticks these boxes, you’re off to a winner already!

It’s also worth considering your hair type. Thick? Fine? Curly? The power of your hairdryer is important too. Whilst any hairdryer will ultimately dry your hair, for the most efficient option the wattage (power) of your hairdryer is worth looking out for. An average hairdryer will likely boast 1,800 watts. If your hair is far more voluminous and thick, it’s worth exercising your option for a more powerful option. 

Tip #2 Your Roots!

Want a speedier blow dry? Tackle your roots and work down. Ensure initially the the root area is completely dry. Your hair will look much healthier. It’s simple and easy to implement!

Tip #3 Towel Drying 

On the face of it this stage perhaps seems counter intuitive if we are trying to speed the proceed. If you have the time, shower first and then multitask second. Towel wrap your hair, grab some breakfast for 15 minutes.

This saves your hair from heat exposure whilst having the added benefit of drying your hair with no additional effort.

Tip #4 Choosing Your Hair Brush!

This one is really simple. This is a marginal gain however as a rule of thumb, take into account your hair type and run with this!

  1. Paddle brushes are a no no for blow drying.
  2. The bristle type is vital for thick hair. Try a boar bristle brush if you haven’t already.
  3. The shorter/finer the hair, the smaller the barrel of the brush (and vice versa for longer/thicker hair).

Tip #5 Hair Products

There are a select few products on the market that coincide with reducing the time of blow drying hair whilst offering additional benefits. At Wisteria Avenue Hair Salon in Abingdon we strongly recommend JOICO K-PAK Color Therapy Luster Lock Multi-Perfector Spray. This offers exponential benefit whilst also speeding up your blow drying!
