How To Finger Dry Your Hair

I’m never been a fan of blowdrying and only do it in winter when I can’t wait for my hair to air dry. But we’re in summer now and to dry my hair I simply use my fingers. That’s right. I prefer to use the heat produced by the friction from my hands instead than that from the blow dryer which can damage hair if used too often.

Finger drying is much gentler, and most suitable for those with damaged and short hair. It is also very easy and you don’t need any special tools. Just your fingers, a comb and a hair gel will do.

– First of all, you obviously need to wash and condition your hair as usual. Then, apply some hair gel and comb through your hair.
– Now, let your fingers do all the work. Run them through your hair in an upwards and forwards motion from roots to end. Be quick (but gentle!) and use rapid movements until your hair is dry.
– If you want volume, make sure you lift your hair at the crown.
– Once done, use your fingers to flatten your hair at the sides.

And voilà. Your hair is dry, beautiful and healthy.

    I’ve never heard of this method! So neat. :] I’m getting a haircut, Gio! My hair is barely shoulder length at most and I want to cut it short again. I really like short hair. Do you have any ideas? (I’m open to any idea) My appointments is on the 23rd! So excited. ;]

      Janessa, how exciting! As much as I love long hair, I prefer to keep mine quite short too. It’s more practical and easier to manage. How short would you like to go? You could go for something classic, like a short bob, or if you’re feeling more adventurous, you could get an asymmetrical cut like this: Or do you prefer some other style?

          Lol. I usually always go for a short bob when I cut my hair, but without the fringe, otherwise it looks very Edna-like indeed. haha. And you’re welcome. I’m glad you like the asymmetrical and I think it’d suit you. :)
