So you woke up late. You now only have time for two of the following:

1. Shower

2. Blow dry

3. A breakfast sandwich

(Hint: slick in some leave-in conditioner for the road, comb, swoop and/or tousle accordingly, and be on your merry way. You'll have plenty of time to get where you're going and to grab a baconeggandcheese.)

Let’s Talk About It! JOIN IN
  • Haiku Jew

    I never blow-dry
    and I don't diet either
    it's time to try both.

  • Yasmeen Mjalli

    I don't blow dry anyway. I've always felt that was damaging to my hair so I hunted for the right products to put in that would allow it to air-dry and not be a total mess. I alternate between leave-in conditioner and curl cream and occasionally put some coconut oil on my ends for extra moisture. I try and stay natural and hassle-free so forget the blow dryer!

    • Lily

      yeah, it's considered kind of high maintenance where I am, to blow dry your hair.

      Also, it's far too hot in summer to be spending several minutes with your arms up and directing a blast of hot air at your head. I'm always half dead from all the holding of the hairdryer by the end.

  • Emma and Emily

    I'm not a person who ever bothers with my hair, so I will be making the breakfast sandwich!

  • Rachel

    I always air-dry my hair but would love to see some product recommendations that will tame and de-frizz / make air-drying my hair look a little more chic.

  • coffeetoo

    I would love it if an article like this had some models test this out. And I don't mean only straight-hair models.

    ** and by models I mean regular people "modeling" this advice

  • Lily

    Better yet, wash your hair the night before. You get the shower plus some damp hair to throw in a bun to avoid the frizz.

    (no idea why more people don't do this)

      I always wonder about that too. #nightshower
