Most women can agree: Heat styling is kind of like a security blanket. You take comfort in knowing that, regardless of your hair type, if you use a flat iron, your hair will turn out smooth and straight, and if you use a curling iron, you’re sure to end up with gorgeous curls or effortless waves. Air-drying, on the other hand, is completely unpredictable. There are too many factors that can lead to a frizzy, flat or frightening style, and sometimes, it’s just not worth the risk. Until now, that is! Read on to find out how to air-dry your hair like a pro.
For straight hair:
Volume and detangling are your main concerns when air-drying. Wash hair with Macadamia Professional Weightless Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner, then apply Macadamia Professional Weightless Moisture Conditioning Mist before using the Macadamia Professional No Tangle Brush to get rid of any knots. To give hair extra body as it dries, work Macadamia Professional Foaming Volumizer from roots to ends, then wrap the hair around your crown in rollers if desired.
For wavy hair:
To help define your natural texture while preventing frizz, wash strands with Macadamia Professional Nourishing Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner, then apply a dime-sized amount of Macadamia Professional Nourishing Moisture Oil Treatment to the ends of your hair for extra moisture and shine. Apply Macadamia Professional Texturizing Salt Spray from mid-lengths to ends to enhance your curl pattern, then apply a small amount of Macadamia Professional Whipped Detailing Cream to add separation and hold as your hair dries.
For curly hair:
The difference between beautiful, bouncy curls and a frizzy mess? Lots of moisture. Start off by shampooing with Macadamia Professional Ultra Rich Moisture Shampoo, then apply Macadamia Professional Ultra Rich Moisture Masque to damp hair and leave it on for 5-10 minutes. Rinse out the deep conditioner, then use a micro-fiber towel or a T-shirt to soak up any moisture. The most crucial step when air-drying curly hair? Do not brush your hair. Apply a leave-in conditioner and use fingers to gently detangle your ends if necessary. Apply Macadamia Professional Curl Enhancing Spray to your hair, then apply a dime-sized amount of Macadamia Professional Taming Curl Cream to define curls, lock in shine and prevent frizz as it dries.
