A fast way to dry hair is to blow-dry the under-layers first. Starting with the top layers only makes the hairbrush damp and re-wets sections of the hair that have already dried.
- Select the right blow dryer
For optimal results, use an 1,800-watt blow dryer. A lower wattage model slows the process down.
- Towel dry hair
If hair is soaking wet, blow drying it out takes more time. Thoroughly soak up any excess water with a microfiber or terrycloth towel.
- Apply mousse
Covering wet hair with mousse stops the hair from absorbing the water.
- Dry the bottom layers
Bend over at the neck, or clip the top layers of hair. Target the blow-dryer on the bottom layers until they are dry.
- Dry the top layers
Stand up straight, or remove the clips, and blow dry the top layers. Use a hairbrush to flatten the hair out.
