Is Blow-Drying Bad for Hair?


Question: Is Blow-Drying Bad for Hair?
Answer: Yes. Overdrying the hair causes strands to dry out and break. Your best bet is to blowdry your hair 80 percent dry, and let the rest dry naturally OR do the exact opposite: Let hair naturally dry half-way, then finish with the blowdry. When you can, I recommend skipping the blowdryer altogether.
