is air drying hair bad
I get asked about my air drying hair all the time.
As if the answer wasn’t obvious. No. It’s not.
I use air dryers to dry my hair every day, and every day it’s just as dry, and just as shiny, and just as alive. Not only that, but the only thing that can even touch your hair are the dryers. I’m not saying that you should NEVER dry it yourself, but to be honest, you shouldnt be air drying it.
The problem is that most air dryers are pretty cheap and don’t last long. And as it turns out, the air dryer is one of the most dangerous appliances ever invented. A 2000 year old wooden one that breaks down every 3-5 years or so, or even an old one that has been in the basement for 5 years with no maintenance and only one part that needs replacing.
The air dryer is a dangerous device because it has a number of parts that break down. And because it’s in a basement it is, of course, not kept up to date. It is a very big, very heavy, very expensive appliance and it has an awful habit of breaking down. You can see how the air dryer is a very bad idea.
But wait, I thought all of those things were bad. This is just one of those things that you can’t prevent. But in this case it is not so bad. It’s just that the more we make the air dryer our new go-to for hairdo’s, the more it breaks down.
This is not a new problem. In fact, I just wrote a blog post about it last week. And I remember this as well. Even though I have a machine that can actually do it, I still find myself reaching for the air dryer (or the “dryer”) when I’m not ready to go.
But seriously, this is more of a problem than you think when you read this blog post. So many of the same things apply to hair dryers. In fact, I could write an entire blog post on the problems with air dryers. I could even write a whole blog post on the problems with dryers. But I won’t.
Air dryers are a problem because they don’t dry your hair evenly. I’m not saying that you shouldn’t try to air dry your hair, but keep in mind that you’re trying to keep it out of the air instead of it being exposed to the heat. So you’re doing it wrong.
The other days we have the same problem with air dryers. But this time around, we have the same reason.
