We need to be careful applying heat to our hair in general, but especially in the winter which can be brutal because of the chilly winds outside and the dry temps inside. Air-drying relaxed hair is a supreme option for retaining hair length, but it does take some patience. Natural ladies fair much better with air-drying, however even they can be subject to breakage due to overstretched tresses.
The moisture and hair health you maintain over a short amount of time will be shocking, so it’s definitely worth the effort.
1. Stay With It. You have to use this air-drying method consistently to see significant change. Air-drying every three, four, or five weeks is not going to help your hair.
