It’s entirely possible for people with long hair to spend hours styling their hair to perfection. You may love your long hair because of all the styling options available to you, but it also means your quality hair care routine can drag on for quite a while. Unless you’re one of the rare people who either have a lot of patience or a lot of time to dedicate to styling your hair every day, then you may have looked for ways to make your routine more efficient. Here are some tips to consider to help speed up the styling process without sacrificing your quality look.
Air Dry Your Hair If Possible
Once you’ve used your sulfate free shampoo and conditioner in the shower, it’s tempting to rub a towel through your hair or get out the blow dryer right away. Both of those can damage your hair when it’s still soaking wet, so the best thing to do is let your hair air dry if you can. Of course, this may not be possible if you’re on a time crunch. But if you have the time then it’s well worth it. Simply pat your hair dry after the shower and leave it alone until it’s almost completely dry.
Use Your Products While Your Hair Is Slightly Wet
When your hair is just a little damp, now is the time to apply your leave-in conditioner and any other products you prefer to use. This will ensure you’re not adding more moisture to completely dry hair, which will extend the styling process. You’ll get the best results when you apply your leave-in conditioner when the hair is about 80% dry.
Put Your Hair Dryer On Cool
Using the coolest setting on your hair dryer can finish off the drying process without damaging your hair or making it frizzy. As you’re drying it, run a soft-bristled brush through it gently to smooth out the hair and make it look shiny. Since your hair was already mostly dry, this process should only take a couple of minutes.
Style Or Curl Your Hair in Sections
Curling or styling long hair can take a while, but many people do so in sections. Sectioning out your hair makes it easier to work with and allows you to still create the results you’re aiming for. It’s a simple adjustment to your quality hair care routine, and can cut down on the time spent on it significantly.
