Whether it’s used as a way to smooth and tame unruly, frizz-prone tresses or add volume to naturally flat and lifeless locks, the blow-dryer has become a staple in every bathroom cabinet. Unfortunately, though it can speed up the drying process, it can also damage your tresses beyond repair. So what should you do? Follow our advice: Say goodbye to your blow-dryer and hello to air-drying! Don’t think it’s possible? Read on to discover easy, foolproof ways to air-dry every hair type.
For straight, thin locks:
Your biggest problem with air-drying? Flat, stuck-to-your-head strands. To get volume, body and movement, start off by washing your hair with label.m Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner. Use a microfiber towel to absorb any excess moisture, then gently comb through your hair using a wide-tooth comb. Next, apply a dollop of label.m Volume Mousse to roots to add volume as your hair dries.
For wavy, frizz-prone strands:
The key to saying goodbye to frizz? Moisture, moisture, moisture! The label.m Gentle Cleansing Shampoo removes dirt and impurities without stripping the hair of its natural oils. After cleansing, apply label.m Honey & Oat Mask to damp locks, then, while the conditioner is still in your hair, use a wide-tooth comb to gently get rid of any tangles. Soak up extra moisture with a microfiber towel, then apply label.m Soufflé to add definition to your natural waves.
For coarse, curly tresses:
When it comes to air-drying, ringlets deserve extra special attention. While the right techniques and products will result in effortless, bouncy spirals, one wrong move can leave you with a poufy, lioness-like mane. The most important rule to keep in mind: Do not brush out your hair! Combing your hair will disrupt your natural curl pattern and leave you with not-so-flattering results. Instead, stick to a “no-poo” method, or, opt for a non-drying formula such as label.m Gentle Cleansing Shampoo, followed by the label.m Intensive Mask. Use a microfiber towel to absorb excess moisture, then apply label.m Curl Spray to activate your curls. Finally, apply a generous amount of curl cream to your hair, making sure to evenly distribute the product and gently scrunch the ends.
