Ways to Air-Dry Your Hair (No Matter Your Hair Type)

Air-Drying Hair Trips - naturally curly hair
there is no best method when it comes to drying the hair (although there could be ways that will spoil your hair texture) this post is about different ways drying your hair can add a bit of style to your hair.

SOFT SPIRALS ON THICK, COARSE, NATURALLY CURLY HAIR

"Curly hair takes a lot of work," says Nicole Chapoteau, Allure's accessories director (that's her here), who has herweekly air-dry processdown to a science. She soaks her hair in diluted apple cider vinegar to make it shiny
before cleansing (with Hair Rules Daily Cleansing Cream) and then deep-conditioning for 15 minutes (with Miss Jessie's Rapid Recovery Treatment or Miss Jessie's Super Sweetback Treatment and a shower cap). Then before she even thinks about styling, she uses a lighter daily conditioner from roots to ends (Trader Joe's Nourish Spa Balance Moisturizing Conditioneror Tresemm√© Naturals conditioner), followed by a bentonite-clay mask for an hour. She finishes with a curl cream (Kinky-Curly Original Curling Custard Natural Styling Gel) "that holds the shape, and then I'll just let my hair air-dry," she says. "Nine hours later, the process is over."

ASHLEY OLSEN'S VOLUMIZED WAVES

Ashley's waves in this picture are lived-in without being frizzy, and they're 100 percent created by air-drying. Hairstylist Mark Townsend started by raking a palmful of hydrating mousse through her damp hair. To add lots of volume, Townsend says he put her hair in "a big, loose braid for nice, even waves." While it was drying, he twisted and clipped the braid into a bun a few inches below the crown to lift the hair up and give it more body.

Mary-Kate prefers less volume, so Townsend used the same kind of mousse on her hair in this photo, but then purposefully flattened out her roots by setting her hair in two loose braids. He shook them out after an hour for the easy, unfussy look.

SMOOTH WAVES ON ULTRATHICK HAIR

Allure beauty director Jenny Bailly preps her very thick, straight hair when it's damp with Shu Uemura Art of Hair Wonder Worker Air Dry/Blow Dry Perfector, and then twists it up into four buns before bed (she pops in U-shaped pins to hold them in place without denting her hair). "If I did one bun, I'd get one weird, big bend," she says. "Four buns give me pretty waves around my face."

"She always has the best soft waves framing her face," says hairstylist Teddi Cranford. To get it, if you have straight or wavy hair, all you have to do is tuck your hair behind your ears as it dries and clip a metal hairpin above each ear to exaggerate the bend. "It's a trick we use backstage all the time," says Cranford.

"Setting damp hair in four braids gives you the beachiest waves," says hairstylist Adir Abergel (that's him styling Sharapova's hair). To get her look, mist damp hair with salt spray, divide it into four sections, and then loosely braid each one as it dries.

"She gave me the best trick ever—she does two loose braids before bed, clips them up into twists, and wakes up with gorgeous waves," says Townsend. That's because twisting braids makes the waves smoother and prevents hair from puffing up as it dries.
