Can You Wash & Blow Dry A Hair System?

An essential part of keeping your hair system clean is washing it regularly with shampoo and leave-in conditioner. But what about what happens after you’ve actually cleaned your hair? Should you blow dry it and what are the ramifications of this? In this blog post, we answer these questions and help you out by giving you the best tips for how to dry your hair system without damaging it. Let’s get started.

Should you blow dry your hair system?

This is a question that we often get asked and it’s an important question because using a blow dryer usually leads to dryness owing to the excessive heat. That being said, while it’s recommended that you leave your hair system to air dry, it won’t always be possible. Consider, for example, if you need to go out in a hurry or if it’s winter and you simply cannot wait to dry your hair the natural way. Of course, you can’t go outside with wet hair and you’re likely to catch a cold. So, what should you do?

The answer is simple. It’s all about following the right processes when washing, drying and styling your hair.

When it comes to washing your hair system, you need to use the right shampoos and it’s advisable to also use a leave-in conditioner as well. The hair washing products should never be thoroughly rubbed into the hair system so as not to damage the knots and the base. 

After you’ve done the washing, it’s time for the leave-in conditioner. Make sure that after you apply it and wait for the necessary time to pass, you wash it out but not using hot water. Instead you should use water that is at room temperature. Remember that heat of the water can affect the knots at the base and damage them. Of course, you want to preserve your hair system for as long as possible so this is why it is advisable to do so.

Finally, is the step related to blow drying your hair. While you can indeed blow dry it, the same principle mentioned above applies. High heat means more damage and dryness and to avoid this, you want to set your hairdryer on a cooler setting and not use the full heat setting instead. 

With these tips in mind, your hair system will be clean and dried properly, while ensuring that any damage is kept to a minimum. As a last tip, make sure you use a wide tooth comb when untangling any knots in the hair so that you don’t end up breaking the hair and damaging it further.
