How I Blow Dry Without Damaging My Hair

I’m sure you’ve heard this before but in case you missed the memo, blow-drying isn’t that great for your hair. The good old flip and dry is quick, but it leaves hair dry and frizzy. Air-drying takes too long and the whole just-stepped-out-of-the-shower look isn’t always appropriate but what else is there to do? I use my hair dryer most mornings so I wanted to find something to help lock in moisture while I zap my head daily with extreme heat.

I remember when I first used a ‘grown up shampoo’ (it was my mom’s to be exact). I felt so sophisticated using that lavish pink Herbal Essences bottle—it’s much nicer than the animal-shaped tearless concoction I usually sloshed around the bathtub with. For years that subtle, sweet floral scent was what I associated with all classy, workingwomen. As I grew older, the clean natural fragrances solidified my lifelong love affair with the H.E. name.

Twenty years later Herbal Essences has re-sparked my interest with their Tea-Lightfully Clean Blow Dry Prep Mist. I spritzed this light and fresh-smelling mist through my strands after showering and after letting it soak in for five or so minutes, I took out my blow dryer. Spinning around, whipping my hair back and forth (every morning is like Dancing with the Stars in my house), I dried the same way I would have any other day.

When I was finished and ran a comb through my locks I noticed my hair wasn’t nearly as brittle and had way less breakage. I had maybe 5-10 strands left on the brush in comparison to my usual 25 plus. FYI this mist is perfect for anyone who wants to keep their hair looking soft and healthy on those busy days when air-drying just isn’t an option.
