For those days where we can't be bothered to heat-style our hair, we turn to our trusted hair hack: air drying. It's your answer to beachy waves, which haven’t been styled at all. The added benefits of air-drying hair? Your hair is protected from the harmful effects of heat which can dry it out and make it brittle over time.
Sound good? Let’s get into the best way to air-dry hair without frizz!
If you have fine, straight hair the good news is that you really don’t need much product to achieve natural, wavy air-dried hair. If your locks are a little thicker or dark, you may need some extra help to keep frizz at bay. The general rule-of-thumb: the more texture to your hair, the better.
Just after you’ve dried your hair (it's always best to use a T-shirt), you should apply a conditioning cream which will help to sooth naturally frizzy hair. Apply a coin-sized amount to your palm, rub your hands together and apply to the ends of your hair. For this, we recommend the super-luxurious Pureology Smooth Perfection Intense Smoothing Cream for the softest locks on the block!
Once your hair is sufficiently dry, you’re going to want to go in with a texturising spray, such as a beach spray or the Kérastase Eau de Vagues Beach Wave to hold the natural wave and texture of your hair.
Want to know a handy trick? Spray it onto your hands and not your hair. Then, scrunch up the bottoms of your hair for added texture. If your hair is extra frizzy, try prepping your hair in the shower beforehand with the L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni Art Liss Control + Serum to help tame that mane.
If you love the look of your natural air-dried hair, then you’ll love it twice as much the next day! Keep your natural waves in check with a dry shampoo for a sexy tousled look that can last for up to 3 days. Spray your dry shampoo close to the roots and work it through for va-va-volume!
