Air drying my hair

Good morning Ladies and Gentlemen,

Happy Friday!

We all like waking up feeling refreshed and ready to start our day. So the first thing we do is brush our teeth and hop in the shower to wash our hair and body. We’re not going to walk out the door with wet hair so we use the blow dryer. Every time we use the blow dryer it can burn energy and pollute the air in our homes, especially if you have it on high heat.  Appliance account for 15% of your total energy consumption and a hair dryer can be a big part of it. Believe it or not hair dryers leave a carbon foot print. I like to look good and my hair have to be in place at all times. It’s difficult for women because looking good makes us happy. I want to reduce my blow drying my hair from 4 times a month to 2 times out the month. I want to contribute to the environment in every way. In fact, the amount of watt energy a blow dryer uses in just one hour is higher than some of our most standard household appliances.

One thought on “Air drying my hair

  1. I washed my hair last week on a Saturday and I let it air dry for a full day. I put some moisturizers in my hair and the heat thermal spray to give my hair protection. I set my hair straightener on 375 degrees and it took no more than 35 minutes to do. In the past, I would use high heat to blow dry my hair and then use the hair straightener at 425 degrees. I like the new method because it cuts back on energy, money and my hair is less damaged. I will continue to use this method for the next 6 months and keep you all posted every two weeks. I love my hair and we all want that bone straight look. But is it really worth the damage and money?
